India is the second largest market after China that sends students to study abroad every year. The trend is on the upswing as more than 50% of India’s current population of 1.32 billion is below 25 years.
Why are more students increasingly making the crossover to the International colleges and universities?
1. Global Ranking
No Indian university including the IITs and IIMs has a global ranking in the Top 200. The Indian Institute of Science (IISC) figures in the 250-300 rank.
The competition for admission to Indian institutes is much higher than even a top 20 universities in the world.
Also, the cost of seats under the management quota for professional colleges in India is unregulated in India and highly costly. Sometimes, it is less expensive to study in the top ranking universities abroad than in much less reputed colleges in India.
When it comes to costs and return on your education investment, unfortunately in India, even in popular streams like science and engineering (specifically research), the pay in after doing Masters is meager.
You can safely trust most of the universities abroad as they have an excellent standard of education, maintained by the educational, regulatory bodies of the country.
2. Admission Process
Getting admission to India’s premier institutes like the Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) or Indian Institute of Technology ( IITs) are highly competitive and stressful.
It is indeed a dog or rat race from start to finish when studying in the Indian education system. The rat race gets even more intense in the popular streams of study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
Note this – On an average, an Indian student has lower than one in 50% chance in gaining admission to a highly reputed institute of technology and business.
The high cut-off marks for national level exams such as the Joint Entrance Exams (JEE mains) for engineering colleges, National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for medical colleges and Common Aptitude Tests (CAT) for management colleges can demotivate even the brightest students to give up hope on securing admission to a course and college of their choice.
Studying abroad is a much easier and streamlined process which brings hope and lots of career opportunities for Indian students. Admission to a highly-ranked college or university abroad is comparatively easier right from the undergraduate level.
No wonder, an increasing number of Indian students are choosing to take the big leap and make the crossover for their undergraduate studies.
While there are exams like GRE, TOEFL/IELTS, and GMAT, the syllabus for these exams is relatively simple. Also, it is only one exam that you have to give, unlike Indian national level exams. The admission requirement for selecting the students is also different for each university abroad raising your chances of making to a college of high reputation and standing.
