Want to Study Abroad? Here are the Five Best Destinations
There are lakhs of Indians who aspire to study abroad every year. Not to mention job opportunities with fat paychecks right after completion of the course and even while studying in the college. But let’s not forget that it presents its own challenges such as securing a permanent residence, job security and so on. If you’re looking to study abroad, here are the top 5 destinations to check out: US, UK, Canada, Australia, and Germany.
# United Kingdom: Universities in the UK have received about 30,000 Indian applications for admission until September 2019. This is an increase of 63% over the previous year. The biggest advantage of studying in the UK is that the PG courses are typically one year and this apparently lowers the cost of education.
#United States: The number of Indian students who applied for admission in colleges and universities in the US last year was 2,02,014. In the US, students can enjoy the benefits of merit-based tuition waivers, in addition to getting scholarships and teaching assistantships.
#Canada: Canada received 1,03, 955 applications from India starting from January to October 2019. When it comes to the advantages of studying in Canada, the fee is relatively low in top universities, there is a work permit of up to 3 years post-course completion and getting a permanent residency is comparatively easy.
#Australia: The number of Indian students applying for university admission last year was 1,07,673—a 32 percent increase over 2017-2018. If you’re fresh out of college, you can stay and work in Australia for up to 3 years. The work visa is tad easy to obtain and so is the permanent residency. And if students are ready to move to smaller cities, they are likely to get one more year of work visa.
#Germany: Universities and colleges in Germany received 20,180 Indian applications for admission for the winter semester of 2018-19. There are world-class universities in Germany for STEM, in addition to many PG courses in English. Students would get 18 months post-study work permit too.
