How International Education Builds a Growth Mindset?
It will be only apt to start the blog with the maxim: “The world is a global village”. Globalization starts with education and it is important to have the right education to develop a global mindset.
International education shapes the individuals to develop a universal mindset by getting rid of tunnel vision. By first trying to understand and assimilate the cultural practices and traditions of different nations, our mind begins to absorb a new mindset that traverse nationalistic feelings, man-made borders and narrow jingoistic outlook.
With a global mindset, you’ll never feel as if you are in a new situation—you’ll need no training manual. Your mind will crave to become more integrated and become one with the world order. No wonder, you will be left behind if you aren’t good at communicating, negotiating and collaborating with people from other cultures and languages.
The biggest advantage of learning abroad is that you will try to figure out anything new by yourself. You’re put through classes that have different teaching methods and styles. The new environment presents a new food lifestyle, new public transportation modes and innovative way of living. Students are provided with a new support system and ensured they first receive top class experience and growth opportunities.
The key is to develop an independent mindset as only where there is freedom, there is growth. Students studying abroad are known for their independent lifestyle, high self-growth mindset and self-taught skills. The bonding and friendship developed during this phase of study abroad stay for life and help one expand tremendously in his or her preferred domain and area of interest. This is the kind of exposure that students of International Education receive for expanded thought-process.
There are basically three qualities you need to develop a global mindset: open-mindedness, humility and self-awareness for embracing the new found culture and more importantly internalize the experience for a global mindset.
