Information for parents

Parents and families – you want only the best experiences for your youth – so do we.

Studying abroad in a foreign country is one of the best decisions a young person can make.

The experiences gained abroad can be the key to interesting career opportunities, personal growth, and lifelong friendships – immense values that cannot be measured in any currency. There are many steps to fulfill the dream to study abroad and that’s why we at Beyond abroad have made it as safe, easy, and affordable as possible.

 

WHO ARE WE?

Beyond Abroad was established in 2020 in Finland by Harri Suominen and Tuomas Kauppinen, founders of Asia Exchange and Edunation. Both studied abroad in Asia in the mid-2000s, and the experience left a deep impression on both – so deep that they wanted to help others do the same.

After establishing several businesses in the education sector focusing on Asia and sending more than 10 000 students abroad, they decided to leave their comfort zone and expand their operations globally. Beyond Abroad was born.

Today, Beyond Abroad offers the chance to study abroad in Europe, Asia, North America and South America.

Benefits for your child

PERSONAL

Stepping out of the comfort zone is the key to personal growth. Studying abroad is a great way for your child to increase their self-confidence, become more independent, and gain new perspectives on life. They will learn about foreign cultures and learn to reflect on themselves and their own culture. Moreover, studying abroad will improve their intercultural communication skills and language skills. Academic studies in one of our highly ranked universities combine the advantages of traveling and valuable educational experience.

 

PROFESSIONAL

Besides the personal benefits, the student will widen their international network and gain crucial skills needed in the 21st-century labor market. Globalization and multiculturalization are a significant part of companies’ and organizations’ everyday life nowadays. Employers are looking for employees with global competence and cultural knowledge. Investing in education, especially in a study abroad program, will open doors to new and enriching possibilities for your child. For instance, 90% of graduates that studied abroad find work within six months after graduation and their starting salary is 25% higher. Therefore, we try to make study abroad programs affordable for as many students as possible.
