Why Study Abroad for Indian Students
  • Indian students are always enterprising. With
    their keenness to explore new frontiers, they
    have embraced Overseas Education strongly.
    Especially in the past decade, the number of
    Indian students going abroad to study has
    increased tremendously. It will be exciting to
    note that India has sent the largest number of
    students to the USA, even during 2007-08, which
    makes this seventh year in a row. We have been
    sending the largest number of students from
    2001-02 onwards. 94,563 students from India went
    to the USA during 2007-08. There could be
    hundreds of reasons why a student would want to
    Study Abroad and we have listed some of the most
    important ones here.

Your Academic Life
  • Students are attracted to technological nations
    such as USA, UK and Australia, where they look
    forward to a different experience as well as
    better job prospects. The academic programs that
    these nations offer are excellent and you will
    benefit from any one of them immensely. Here are
    some attractive qualities of these academic
    programs that you should take into consideration.

Your Academic Life
  • Some programs give you the opportunity to
    interact directly with some of the finest minds
    in their chosen traditional/professional
    disciplines.
  • Different universities will have different
    teaching styles. While some focus more on exams,
    others may consist of lots of group work and
    module assignments. You can choose the university
    that best suits your learning style.
  • There are universities that are flexible in their
    courses and in their modules. If you are one of
    those people who is not sure this would be a
    great option for you. The university will allow
    you to change in the first month.
  • You will have the opportunity to develop strong
    relationships with your faculty and fellow
    students as you work and learn from both.
  • There is an emphasis on imparting
    practice-oriented education. This generates
    valuable employment-related skills in you as a
    student.

Your Social Life
  • Most universities abroad provide you with a whole
    set of extra-curricular activities that you can
    choose to do. If you are a person who is very
    interested in sports, for example, you will find
    that some universities have excellent sport
    facilities that you can benefit from. Other
    people may be attracted to theatre, or music
    facilities. Some of you may want to join a
    university in an urban area which will provide
    you with entertainment, shopping and cultural
    facilities whereas others may be attracted to a
    rural area university. All in all, universities
    abroad provide a rich variety of activities as
    part of their campus life. These factors add a
    unique dimension to your educational and
    cross-cultural experience.
