The students that generally take the TOEFL are looking to study a Masters program in another country. They generally do so because of the educational and professional opportunities that are available in foreign countries.
The unfortunate reality about the inequivalence of the education system in the world is that a Bachelor’s Degree from one country does not necessarily transfer to a Bachelor’s degree in another country.
The consequences of this inequivalence is that many brilliant students are leaving Peru to further their education and career in a foreign country. Though this does, unfortunately, mean that Peru is losing some of the “Best-of-the-Best” students and professionals from Peru, it also means that world is getting to see and experience first hand how brilliant the Peruvian students are.
I have been preparing students for the TOEFL for years, and through all of this time I have met students who have become Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Architects, and many other professions that are now giving Peru an International presence and reputation as not only some of the “Best-of-the-Best” in Peru but also some of the “Best-of-the-Best” in THE WORLD.
