One of the most evident ways in which the metaverse can influence higher education is by providing students with a more immersive and enriching learning experience, which allows students to experiment and practice in a more functional and meaningful manner. A panoramic review including 44 scientific articles was conducted to describe the main applications and potentialities of the metaverse in education. Augmented reality can become a powerful tool to improve teaching and learning, since it allows students to interact more actively with the content and fosters more immersive and meaningful learning. Metaverse avatars are a technology enabling users to create and control a digital representation of themselves in a virtual environment. The metaverse can have applications in education, including communication and collaboration, enriched learning, improved learning based on projects and accessibility. We can conclude that the metaverse can provide students with a more immersive and enriching learning experience. Through virtual reality, learning environments simulating real situations and scenarios can be created, which allows students to experiment and practice in a more practical and meaningful manner. The metaverse can facilitate distance learning and collaboration between students and professors from different places around the world, which increases the learning opportunities and fosters cultural diversity.
