A university education is increasingly becoming more of a reality for millions of Brazilians due to a growing economy and increased spending power. The number of students enrolled in Brazilian universities is expected to reach 10 million by next year, according to a market report from the US government and, unsurprisingly, there is a growing trend of Brazilians seeking their education overseas. Understanding this market is crucial for those working with international student recruitment.

Citizenship is not created equal. Your nationality determines a lot about you, including the amount of taxes you have to pay and how freely you are able to move about in the world. There are big differences among countries and for some individuals this can be a frustrating fact.

Many of these people are well-off individuals trying to find a better future for themselves and their children.
