Fifty years ago, studying abroad for Ecuadorian people was something completely unrealistic. This could be due to the fact that learning another language was unattainable for the generation of our grandparents and parents (forty to sixty years old) and the need to expand knowledge of other cultures was not considered important. Today, the trend is different. The objective of this research is to show the different opportunities that Ecuador offers to students for study abroad, and to let the students who want to study in universities worldwide know about these opportunities.
