Graduates from India are choosing to study abroad more and more. Why? There are few presentable institutes in social subjects, but there is absolutely no top academic programs in Indian universities. In advanced sciences such as genetic engineering, medicine and related industries, the situation is more favorable, as there are respectable institutes such as the Indian Institute of Science, King George’s Medical University, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Birla Institute of Technology and Science and others. But the competition is too high, because the number of students who can enter such institutions is limited. Moreover, the degree from the best foreign universities is usually more valued in the Indian labor market than the local degree – a perception based not only on snobbery but also on the facts.

And this raises the question: what are the benefits of studying abroad for students from India? To understand this, you need to check all the offers from foreign universities and get feedback from people who have already received education in this country.

Advantages and disadvantages of studying abroad

Before choosing a university regardless of the country, a student from India should understand all problems that may arise. When it comes to studying abroad, it is needed to make sure you really want to go there. Indian students have to be aware that studying abroad involves searching for a job in a relevant field that may be in a foreign country. If you decide to get an education in a foreign country, but then you come home, you will start working in a completely different field – it’s better not to spend time and take a place at the university.

If you still want to study abroad, regardless of what, you must understand the problem: the advantages and disadvantages of studying abroad. So, the benefits are:

  1. Very high level of education.
  2. The diplomas of international universities are in demand throughout the world.
  3. Ability to improve your foreign language level while studying.
  4. Studying abroad provides a meeting of new people and the emergence of useful links.
  5. Ability to find work before graduation.
  6. The learning process is not dictated.
  7. Ability to travel.

After checking the entire list of benefits, you also need to decide what to study abroad. However, it is not so simple and has its disadvantages:

  1. High cost of training.
  2. Language barrier.
  3. Many problems need to be done by processing the necessary documents.
  4. Possible problems with entrance exams.
  5. Great distance from family and relatives.

The main reason for Indian student`s choice is the fact that the Indian labor market prefers to recruit students who have a diploma from a foreign university. In addition, foreign universities offer the best conditions and quality of education for students from India. Let’s check out the best countries to study Indian students.


The number of Indian students entered in Canadian universities over the past year was 90,000 for the first time. In general, the “scheme” of higher education is very similar to the British one: the same rules, the same requirements.  Indian students need to have knowledge of English, proof of solvency and complete secondary education. The Canadian Government has recently introduced immigration policies that give Indian students a number of benefits, such as providing a permanent residence for students who show high academic results and graduated from the Canadian University. Almost all educational institutions are located in large areas (in contrast to most European universities and schools). There are many grants and scholarships for Indian students who want to study in Canada. At the same time, it’s important for an international student to realize that in various industries and at all levels in Canada, there are many opportunities for work that may not be suitable for people from other countries.  You will never notice fastidious looks, disrespect to immigrants or something like that. After all, every 6th resident of Canada is a migrant! Therefore, they treat themselves like this with respect and understanding. Canadians, besides, are not only tolerant, but also happy. The country takes the sixth place in the ranking of countries with the happiest inhabitants.


In a new trend, Germany is becoming a strong place around the world and may soon catch up with Britain as the most popular educational institution in Europe for international students. Learning in Germany is not only free, but you can also do it in English if your German skills are not so good. English is an international and widely spoken language that is taught as a second language in most schools around the world. It is well known that the quality of German education is one of the best in the world, especially in the field of technology, economics and the natural sciences. The German university is not only lectures and audiences, but above all a large infrastructure complex, including multimedia classes, digitized libraries, international cultural centers and sports equipment, uninterrupted wi-fi throughout the campus and modern hostels. All these facts speak in favor of Germany as a country where studies are primarily effective and enjoyable, and the presence of a German diploma will be a huge plus in building your future career.


One of the reasons why many Indian students have chosen Australia is that the procedure for obtaining visas for many Asian students has become cheaper in getting. Just like Canada, Australia is among the safest countries in the world. Australia is a multicultural society that is very egalitarian. Therefore, as a rule, he tries to treat people equally, very few Australians adhere to racist, xenophobic or elitist views. With such an impressive level of education, it is not surprising that today more than 2.5 million former foreign students, after studying in Australia, come to life with intentions to change the world for the better. Some of these students include the best minds in the world. 15 Nobel laureates are from Australia

New Zealand

New Zealand, like Australia, has stepped up its opposition to attract more foreign students, especially Indians. In 2015, over 29,000 Indian students were enrolled; it’s 150 percent more than in 2010. The cost of training may vary greatly between universities, so finding the right one is not difficult. New Zealand is one of the few countries where a student can legally work during a course of study. The student will have the opportunity to work for 20 hours a week, and on vacation can be arranged for a full time. Some higher education institutions have a mandatory employment practice. The educational system of the country is formed on the basis of the British model, which is recognized throughout the world. Recently, New Zealand has become one of the most popular countries for the training of foreign students. However, more often employers prefer local people. New Zealand is a tourist paradise that offers a variety of opportunities for active recreation. English is spoken in most parts of the country.

The United States

Universities in the United States are among the best in the world, which perfectly combines academics with extra-curricular activities. Many foreign students choose the United States because of their strong reputation in higher education. The US higher education system, which has more than 3,500 universities throughout the country, is always highly valued, extremely prestigious and has a powerful impact on the rest of the world. Getting a degree or even passing courses on subjects in the US is affecting potential employers.  Another benefit in favor of long-term training is the cost of study. One of the features of studying in America is the payment not for the academic year, but for the number of subjects passed. Thus, if intensive training is too costly for you, you can get a job, get knowledge in practice, and then continue training. That’s exactly what many Americans do. In this light, the training, lasting 20 years, does not seem strange or surprising. There are also American universities that are engaged in research and technology development. For most foreign students, universities become their home for four years in postgraduate education. The arrangement of student life is impressive. Comfortable conditions on campuses have not only a beautiful open environment, but also an extremely attractive infrastructure.

So, why is this still a good option for studying abroad? Despite all the difficulties, you must understand that studying abroad is very beneficial, because in this case you will have the opportunity to get your dream job with decent pay. Once you get a European University degree, you will certainly have the chance to stay abroad and live a decent life. If you have any doubts or you do not know where to start, you can get help from special centers for studying abroad.
