Why should Indian students Study Overseas?
Posted on August 24, 2018
In less than a decade, the number of overseas students worldwide increased, from 2,800,000 to 4,100,000. As of 2017, there are 5,000,000 overseas students out of which 300,000 were Indians. One-third of these Indian students are in the USA and Canada followed by Australia with 50,000.
More and more Indian students are opting for Study Overseas. Several facets that excite both the students and their parents are:
- Broader perspective: An education abroad pulls the students out of their comfort zone. They need to manage finances, deal with daily challenges, and make their own decisions thereby making them more solution-oriented. Living in a new country exposes them to a new culture, traditions, and people of various backgrounds. They get a better understanding of how a different country functions and how different people react to various situations. This builds cultural awareness making them global citizens who fit seamlessly into global roles, as per the Economic Times.
- Higher education: International Universities want their prospective students to not only be academically inclined but also bring something new to the table. Someone who has studied in different locations in the world is able to shine through easily. This makes getting into difficult and unconventional Masters and PhD programs easier.
- International exposure: Recruiters seek students who not only have a global thought process but also know the local nuances of different countries. International exposure broadens the horizon for these students. Students who have been exposed to cultures of different countries can break the ice easily with global clients.
- World Traveler: Students who study abroad tend to travel to the neighboring countries. For example, a student studying in Australia would travel to New Zealand. Traveling creates memories for life and helps enrich our lives. It increases resourcefulness by encountering situations one may not have faced at home.
