The total number of Indian students going abroad to pursue their higher education has been steadily increasing over the years. The most popular study abroad destinations for Indian students are the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Europe, and Singapore.
A large number of reasons are behind this phenomenon, including job prospects, ease of admission etc. Most students who want to pursue undergraduate courses abroad are influenced by the extremely competitive and unrealistic admission criteria in Indian universities.
On the other hand, most students who want to pursue postgraduate courses abroad are influenced by their desire to live and work abroad.
According to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, a total of 7,53,000 Indian students were studying overseas in 2019. Even with the pandemic taking over, over 91% of Indian students expressed a strong interest in studying abroad as soon as they were allowed to do so.
