This is my Ielts essay, please help me check it in grammar, structure, ideas and use of words. Thanks

It is become increasingly common for students to leave their home countries to study at universities abroad.
Why is this happening?
What are the consequences of this phenomenon?

In recent years the quantity of students studying oversea has gone up dramatically the world over. This essay will analyze some significant causes as well as effects of this trend.

Firstly, one underlying cause of this phenomenon is for better courses. Prestigious universities employ teachers who are experts in their fields; therefore, educatees can learn more effectively knowledge and have open minds. Take Vietnam for example, a lot of big companies there ask people applying for jobs to have foreign bachelors and the reasons are given out that abroad learners from developed countries have wider experiences than others. As a consequence, students with qualifications gained abroad can open the door to better job opportunities.

Secondly, another reason is cited by many parents that studying and living abroad improve personality especially with independence and responsibility. No one can deny the fact that studying at oversea universities is difficult for most of students. For example, a student studying in a foreign school would have a lot of problems such as cooking for themselves, cleaning and paying bills to name a few, so he or she has to face these problems by themselves. Although they are not insurmountable, a few will give up and come back their home countries without any certificates while others will be taught to be independent and take responsibility for what they do.

Thirdly, last reason is pointed to the fact that complex cultures have become an acute problem in many international companies and that is nearly the same as what oversea students have to face in times they are living in foreign countries. As a result, after finishing studying, learners will get another ability which help them deal with this problem.

In conclusion, although studying abroad is costly, this can be overshadowed by its advantages. For the benefit of our children and future generations, it is necessary that we understand this matter and make proper decisions to create the best future possible.

The number of students studying abroad has risen significantly in the past few years.

Take Vietnam for example, a lot of big companies there ask people applying for jobs to have foreign bachelors and the reasons are given out that abroad learners from developed countries have wider experiences than others.

... This sentence is too long. Try to break it down.
Many big companies in Vietnam requires a foreign bachelor degree from their employees. This is due to the belief that the foreign educated students are more experienced than others.

You have good points. This is a good essay. :)

Firstly, one underlying cause of for this phenomenon is for better courses.

This is a very good idea and I wish if you did presented it better with a little more description to give the reader its full effect;

First, one underlying reason for this phenomenon is that studying abroad generally offers better quality and more options for the students.

therefore, educatees can learn more effectively knowledge and have open minds.

educatees?... this is not a commonly used term.... I prefer "students" to that because it has more effect on your idea.

another reason, which is cited by many parents

another reason cited by many parents / another reason that is cited by many parents

Your essay is very good. You follow good structure and have very good arguments and examples.
