Georgia is a fast developing study abroad market. Over the past decade the country has made great strides. Georgia’s economy has grown robustly at an average annual rate of 4.5 percent. This was despite numerous shocks, including the global financial crisis of 2007-08, the conflict with the Russian Federation in 2008, and the drop in commodity prices since 2014 that has impacted key trading partners.
According to the World Bank: ‘Deep reforms in economic management and governance have earned Georgia a reputation of “star reformer.” As a result, ‘the country’s international ratings on governance and the investment climate have soared’.
Rising GDP and the demand for quality education go hand in hand. Currently 25% of undergraduate and graduate students in Georgia are actively looking for education opportunities overseas. At this point, close to 10,000 Georgian students are studying abroad at tertiary level.
