With Cases like third world countries where teaching tools like computers, library/laboratory materials are scarce, international education becomes a better option because it provides a variety of teaching tools that yield skilled quality out come and research.
In addition, International education forms good connections between different nations that may not have good diplomatic relationships.For Example countries maybe having religious biases over other countries but when the idea of exchange students come in, they help in terminating negativity of such biases thus doing away with the unknown. In the end students would have gained improved knowledge for positive relationships with others and this makes them tell the other world how such biases were wrong hence creating stable diplomatic relationships.
The fact that we tend to meet people of different cultures through international education, this develops our understanding of other cultures which also lead to the understanding of our own culture in a long run because it gives us the urge to do advanced research about our own cultures since we have developed the spirit of self examination and the desire to find ourselves.
Participating in an international study program is more than an academic adventure; it’s a positive experience that will have an everlasting influence on our future. Through it, new networks are formed that are prime when seeking for employment and in most cases companies see international students as being more flexible and knowledgeable making it beneficial for them.
Most international studies are conducted in English; this helps us to become more fluent in the English language, improves our spoken and written skills and makes communication easier.
In conclusion, international studies have been a success because students have benefited a lot from them. Some colleges, institutes and universities develop study programs carefully with well- organized application processes making it easier for international students to make smart choices for courses that match with their former qualifications and this is satisfactory .
Health services, counseling center and other key centers that motivate international students are provided. The use of campus support network and team work is encouraged. Some universities have made international students feel much more comfortable than what they felt in their former institutions of learning therefore making international education a success.
