We are living in an integrated world, in which practical knowledge, English skill and the ability to handle assigned tasks effectively play key roles in getting a good job. That is the reason why Vietnamese parents are willing to spend enormous sums of money for their children to study in developed countries. As a result, the significant increase in the number of Vietnamese students studying abroad has grabbed media attention recently. Many Vietnamese parents believe that the knowledge from advanced education can contribute effectively to their children’s successful careers in the future.

IMPRESSIVE FIGURES OF VIETNAMESE STUDENTS STUDYING IN THE U.S ACCORDING TO LATEST SEVIS BY NUMBER UPDATE

One of the shining highlights of the SEVIS report is the breakneck growth in Vietnamese enrolments at all levels of the US educational system, especially at its colleges and universities.

Vietnam has surpassed Japan in total enrolment. It recorded an astounding 18.9% increase from July to November 2015, the third highest after India (20.7%) and China (19.4%).

Incredibly, Vietnam now ranks sixth among all sending countries with 28,883 students studying at US institutions, mostly colleges and universities but also boarding and day schools.

Extrapolating from the estimate calculated by the Institute of International Education based on information from the Open Doors data and the US Department of Commerce, this means that the current contribution to the US economy by Vietnamese students is US$919,467,364, a conservative figure considering that some of those 28,883 students.

5 Reasons to Study Abroad

1)  Stepping out of your comfort zone

If you don't gather enough courage and determination to step outside your comfort zone, you won't be able to have a chance to get the best of what the world out there is offering you. It is not easy for anyone to walk out of that comfort zone, but if you can accept and overcome the challenge, the magical world waiting for you to discover will appear before your eyes and make you more confident in yourself as well as in your ability to achieve your dreams.

2)  Getting access to a better education

Unlike the Vietnamese education system, which focuses a lot on theory and in which students are less likely to practice what they have learned, the education environment in other developed countries places a strong emphasis on practicality and applications of classroom and knowledge. The offer a student-centered learning environment that can enhance the initiative and creativity in each and every person. The goal is for students to adjust to any working environment without feeling like a fish out of water.

3)  Chance to  become global citizens

To become a global citizen, you need to meet basic requirements like: English (or other foreign) language proficiency, professional skills, cultural knowledge, social integration, etc. So how does studying abroad help you become a global citizen? Studying abroad help you gain thorough knowledge needed for your future career choice. In addition, it sharpens your self-reliance to form an independent person.

4)  Realizing and defining personal goals

After setting foot on foreign soil, accessing to better education and making international friends, they are better positioned to find their place in the world. They can better hear their inner voice about what they actually want to achieve in their own life and about their clear vision in a future career path.  

5)  Development in the future

Among the many famous Vietnamese people who have studied abroad, we have to mention Pham Nhat Vuong, Mai Kieu Lien, Truong Gia Binh, or younger names like Le Diep Kieu Trang, Le Tri Thong, who are currently making enormous contributions to Vietnam’s society and culture.  Why did they succeed? Probably, because they were educated and nurtured in an international environment. Learning in such an environment gives you a solid foundation that is strong enough to help you climb higher on the occupational ladder. The future path is wide open for those overseas Vietnamese students whether they choose to remain overseas or return to Vietnam.
