From the Director
Hi! I’ m Bridget Egan, founder and Managing Director of Global Student. I created Global Student in 1998 out of a passion for international education and a desire to share and develop international study abroad opportunities for students. I am from New Zealand and have enjoyed international education myself, studying my last year of high-school in Belgium. I taught English for several years in Latin America and New Zealand, and completed a PhD which looked at how international education serves as a conduit for engagement between countries. I believe wholeheartedly that an international education experience provides an excellent experience for personal and professional growth. Through Study abroad we can develop a new generation of Global citizens, better able to understand each other and appreciate language and cultural differences. The person-to-person diplomacy enacted through the friendships students make while abroad is an increasingly important aspect of the Study Abroad experience as the world becomes more integrated and as a new generation grows up with issues affecting the planet in which co-operation will be a precursor to finding solutions.
