The Cost Associated with More Students Studying Abroad

28 August, 2013 11:48  Erin Erin

The path to becoming an expat can take many different routes. From falling in love and following your partner overseas to moving for adventure to studying abroad - there are many ways to start a new life in a new country. The latter is becoming increasingly popular with the amount of students studying abroad between 1980 and 2010 tripling. HSBC reports that "...more than three million people are studying for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in a foreign country."

We often hear on expat blogs and in our series of expat interviews how a semester abroad can turn into a year, 10 years, a lifetime abroad. Programes like the European Erasmus program (EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) make studying abroad easier than ever with compatible courses, grading system, and scholarships. Along with the benefits of an education, students that study abroad may gain greater independence, understanding of the world, and life experience.

Egypt’s Media War from the Perspective of an Expat

20 August, 2013 12:36  Erin Erin

A recent participant in our series of expat interviews has been on our mind as Egypt's protests have erupted in an explosion of violence. With hundreds of people dead, it is difficult to tell what the situation is like for people living there. Read about Zareth's life in Cairo here, and find her account of the recent happenings in Egypt below*.

Cairo, EgyptWednesday morning was like any other, I woke up to make breakfast for my husband while he got ready for work. At seven in the morning his work phone interrupted the routine. A call from a friend changed the day completely. From that point on we rushed to the television to see the police making The Muslim Brotherhood abandoned the premises they were in.

As I watched, I knew this was coming. Ever since the Ex-President was thrown out, his followers have been protesting in different parts of Egypt. This has caused a lot of anger, the fact that his people have been saying we are peacefully protesting while of course being armed with weapons and attacking the police, army and the people.  

I guess we have been hearing different things from different points of view.  I will explain what is happening and let this be my opinion and what I am seeing with my own eyes, not them manipulation of the news.
