Education in India or abroad: Make your call

05Sep,2020
By Editorial

Getting your education in India is considered cheap. However, there are around 7.5 lakh students who visit other countries for education. After China, India has gained the spot of sending highest number of students to abroad universities for completing their education. Education in abroad was difficult many years ago due to multiple factors. Now students from all sections of the society can study abroad as loans are available for paying the expenses and globalization has made the world a smaller place. Now students go abroad to pursue their different courses and get an edge over the others. But students are confused whether they should study in India or go abroad to complete their education. 

Motivation behind the choice

One must never make a decision after getting pressurized or due to a fancy that you have developed at that particular time. You must remember that your decision to study abroad or in India will affect your whole life. 
Many students often want to study abroad as they can get the chance to explore beautiful locations, experience different cultures and so on. But you must remember that you can do all these by going on trips or doing internships overseas. Your sole motivation to study abroad must be to look for the educational opportunities that it will provide. 
Likewise, if you stay back in India, you can study while living in the comforts of your home with your family. If the degree you want to pursue has good scope in India, then you can study here. But if you think that the course has better options overseas, then you must head there.


What do you want to study?

Earlier most students went abroad to study management courses. But now new courses have come up like design and architecture, arts, engineering and technology and so on. While studying in foreign universities will be good for your resume, but there are many courses like law, government administration and others which you can study in India too. If you are not sure about where you want to go for higher studies, talking with an educational counsellor can be very helpful.


Goals in the long term

If you want to study abroad and stay there, then one must look for those courses which are in demand in the job market in that particular country. One can shortlist those countries which have an open program for immigration and good job opportunities for the students. One can study and settle down in English speaking nations like USA, UK, Australia, Canada and others. Settling in these countries is better as one do not have to learn another language as is the case with non-English speaking countries. 
If you want to make your future in India, then you can go abroad and study and then come back. Based on the course that you choose to study, you can select the country which offers the best degree and awesome opportunities for you to learn. 


Cost of the course and return on investment

Living abroad to studying in a foreign university will mean that you will incur a lot of expenditure. This often makes many students opt for studying in India. Now student loans are available to aid the students. The expenditure may be high but one must remember that after the completion of the course, you will receive good job offers. And that will help you to repay the loan if you have taken one or recover the money that you have spent on studying the course. 


Adapting to a new culture

While you may be excited about the experiences and travelling for studying abroad, there are many other issues that you must keep in mind. There will be a huge change culturally and also academically when you study abroad. The style of teaching, enrolment process will be strikingly different from the ones you have in India. So be very sure that you can adjust to these changes before heading abroad to study. 


Recognition of the degree

Not all the degrees of different countries are accepted in another country or even in India. If you wish to work abroad, make sure you know about the acceptance of the degree in the country where you want to work. For example, UK offers a Master’s Degree of one year which is not acceptable in many countries. Hence, it is very important to check the recognition of a particular degree in other nations.


Political atmosphere of the country

If you study in India, you already know about the political situation and you have your family, so you can face any problem coming your way. But when you are going abroad for studies, one needs to understand the political scenario in that country. Many foreign countries have racism issues and adjusting to that can be a problem for you. So before you decide to go abroad for studies, have a look at the current political situation and the nation’s attitude to foreign students.
Whether you want to study abroad or in India is your decision to make. However, considering all these factors and taking the help of family, friends, and education counsellors, can help you to make the decision easily.
