Importance of International Education Exchange Programs

There lived a toad in a well who thought that the well was the whole universe. One day a turtle from the Eastern Ocean was passing by the well when the turtle heard a voice coming out of the well. The turtle peeped into the well and saw that it’s the voice of the toad. “Look how well I am off here!”, told the toad to the turtle. “I can hop along the coping of the well when I go out, and rest by a crevice in the bricks on my return. I can wallow to my heart's content with only my head above water, or ankle deep through soft mud. No crabs or tadpoles can compare with me. I am master of the water and lord of this shallow well. Why don't you come here more often to have a good time? ". After hearing everything patiently, the turtle started describing the toad about the ocean world- “It's more than a thousand miles across and more than ten thousand feet deep.

It has remained quite constant throughout the ages. That is why I like to live in the Eastern Ocean”. After knowing about the ocean world, the toad understood that the world had many secrets to unfold to us each day and night. We just need to open our eyes to get the fruit of knowledge.

In this world of globalization, it is very important to have a detailed insight into the day to day happenings around the world. Since the end of World War II, the number of internationally mobile students continues to increase on a worldwide annual basis. The flow of students between countries creates a learning opportunity like no other. International education creates an environment of cultural understanding that exposes participants to new and different approaches to life, ways of thinking and governance. Only when we are able to develop an understanding of others and we can appreciate our differences will we able to have civil dialogue and work together on the world problems of tomorrow. International education and exchange plays a significant role in bringing the world together.

To increase mutual understanding between the people of different nations, the international education exchange programs are designed. Educational and cultural exchange programs are run by different nations of the world so that our future generation can reap the fruit of international culture. With the gradual development in the field of IT, India has now come into the limelight in the world scenario. Different multinational organizations are setting up their business houses in India which has opened up new employment opportunities to the Indian students. Now we can witness a host of international schools in different cities of the countries where students are getting international standard of education. It is also important to prepare our students for a more competitive world that they will face in near future. Moreover, every year a number of students are relocating to India for the purpose of getting education. The free flow of information has now enabled the citizens of the different nations to be a global citizen. Student may only participate in the exchange for a cumulative total of time not to exceed one calendar year, defined as an academic year and a summer session.
