Colombia sends over 25,000 students abroad for higher education each year. This number has increased by 50% over the last decade.
At the moment, only 2% of Colombian tertiary students are enrolled abroad, but Colombia’s Ministry of Education has made academic mobility central to its overall education plan. With fiscal backing from the Colombian Institute of Educational Credit and Technical Studies Abroad (ICETEX), a determined effort is afoot to assist Colombians studying abroad.
Despite low overall English proficiency, when Colombians opt for overseas study they go in large numbers to English-speaking countries, mainly US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the UK.
While all English-speaking countries are in demand, the prevalence of the Spanish language in the US is an advantage.
