Young Mauritians who will obtain their HSC results in a few months will have to choose whether to go to university abroad or not (because of the COVID-19 situation worldwide) and, if yes, where and what to study.
Of course, everyone knows that going to university abroad is not a determinant for success. A lot of very successful people have studied in Mauritius and some have never done any tertiary-level studies! According to me, going to university abroad has a number of benefits though:
- Becoming independent
- Gaining confidence
- Developing one’s personality
- Learning with some of the best professors
- Being exposed to a new culture and new people
What do you think?
