More than nine in ten (93 per cent) expat families believe their kids gain an advantage from growing up overseas, says new research.
Commissioned by offshore finance specialist NatWest International Personal Banking, the latest Quality of Life Index found a range of factors contributed to most families’ positive experiences.
Eight in ten (82 per cent) of those parents surveyed by the bank’s research partner, the Centre for Future Studies think tank, said an expatriate lifestyle had made their children more self reliant.
Three-quarters (76 per cent) believe exposure to different cultural experiences is beneficial while 70 per cent have a high regard for the education received at international schools.
New Zealand learning providers are said to have scored the highest among the British nationals polled, closely followed by Canada.
The study’s release follows comments made by an expatriate journalist who suggested growing up abroad has both pros and cons.
Writing in the Times, Charles Bremner said although some children may feel rootless, they gain a number of advantages including an international array of friends and strong language skills.
