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 an interest in sharing and developing international study abroad opportunities for students. I am from New Zealand and have enjoyed international education myself. I studied 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 is 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. Person-to-person diplomacy is an inevitable part of the experience through the friendships students make while abroad. This 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 is needed for us to find the solutions that are needed.
