B.B. King, the legendary American blues guitarist, once said ““The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.” And indeed, what we have learnt can’t be taken by anyone from our gasp because it is present within us in eternal form, not in some physical state. Learning is an endless process without limits. And, it is also a dynamic one, which can be achieved in so many different forms, places and circumstances. Learning process can be broadly categorized into two types, based on their characteristic traits as formal and informal. Formal learning is the one delivered by trained teachers based on certain curriculum, generally at a particular institution. Meanwhile, the informal one is the one without any rigid curriculum and the trainer can be anything from an event in life to nature and anyone from our parents to random strangers walking in the street.
In this article, we are focusing on the formal kind of learning or say its synonym education. Most of our early phase of life, we spend in formal education, in schools, colleges and universities, so as to equip us for getting along with life easily in later years. With the progress mankind has achieved in science, the world today seems like a small village. And in this small village, the concept of abroad study i.e. studying in foreign land, has become popular and equally rewarding one too. Although people have travelled across borders since a long time ago in search of better education, it has been much easier and subsequently pretty common too in modern times. And right here, we are presenting to you the top ten best cities in the world for abroad studies.
