JOHANNESBURG – Earlier this month, Lindiwe Mazibuko graduated from Harvard University in the US. She joins a long list of distinguished South Africans who have studied abroad, including Khanyi Dhlomo, Justice Edwin Cameron, Kgomotso Matsunyane…there are also many South Africans toiling in corporates and governments who have benefited from an education outside our borders.

In this week&39;s eNCAlive we have a conversation about the pros and cons of studying abroad. And also how to go about it. This might seem like a daunting enterprise but our panel will tell us more about their experiences and lessons learned. We ask if studying abroad is worth the trouble? Do students bring back useful insights or are they educated for circumstances that do not prevail in their country?
