    Foreign educational institutions

    Could you please check this short paragraph?

    Foreign educational institutions may offer better and more courses that suit students' academic requirements. Qualifications gained abroad may pave the way for better job opportunities.
    In addition, those studying in a foreign country will be responsible for cooking, cleaning, and paying bills, so it seems that they will be able to become more independent than they used to be.

    Re: Foreign educational institutions

    Thanks Tedmc.
    Could you please tell me why you suggested "would"? What is wrong with "will"? Did you use "would" to make prediction in the future too?

    I sometimes have problem understanding the use of "would" in sentences other than "conditional", but I WOULD like to use this verb in my sentences.

    Thanks.

    "Will" implies "a certainty that something will happen" whereas "would" implies "a probability that something will happen". You do not use "will" unless you are sure that something will happen. I think most students but not all (for example, those who stay in hostels or board with families) will need to do their own cooking when they go to study overseas and become more independent.

    "Will" implies "a certainty that something will happen" whereas "would" implies "a probability that something will happen".
    Doesn't would imply the meaning of conditional? You meant whenever we are not certain about some situations we can use would, like may, might or could that we use in such situations. Is this correct?

    For example, lack of physical activity may, might, could, would result in obesity. we don't use will because we are not that sure.
