PERU, Lima
Where

The Peruvian capital is founded by Francisco Pizarro in 1535 and was initially named The City of the Kings. It boasts of ancient Incan archeological sites, elegant cathedrals and magnificent palaces dating from Spanish colonial times. Lima is also known as the Gastronomical capital of the Americas with its cuisine incorporating African, European, Chinese and Japanese ingredients. Downtown is quite busy with its colourful markets and perfectly reflects the diversity and excitement of this astonishing city.

Why?
  • Growing economy
  • Despite current downturn in the region, including Brazil having serious economic and corruption issues, Peru is thriving with 3.01% growth, according to latest October 2015 data. This is a precondition for parents sending their children to study abroad.

  • A variety of scholarships for studies abroad available
  • Peru’s National Programme for Scholarships and Education Loans – PRONABEC provides a range of funding opportunities, including the “President of the Republic” scholarship for masters and PhDs in various disciplines that gives students access to universities in 52 countries. There are also country-specific scholarships for France, Ecuador and many others.

  • Unemployment rate
  • Unemployment is particularly high among the 14-24 age group – 13.2% in 2015. These figures together with the government funding opportunities are a premise for an increasing number of students going abroad to improve their job prospects.
