Following the announcement of the cancellation of board exams, the number of students seeking education abroad dropped significantly. However, the enthusiasm to study abroad persists and is evident from the insights.
Statistics collected from a large pool of students point to students ’major challenges and concerns. Worldgrad, a technology-enabled platform that helps students from the very beginning of the foreign education process, recently conducted a detailed survey of more than 20,000 graduate aspirants to gather insights about their plans to study abroad after Kovid; The survey provided insights into their barriers and overall difficulties.
According to the survey, 81% of students still wish to study abroad while 19% of students have delayed or dropped out of studying abroad. In terms of popular study abroad, Canada has emerged as the top option for students among 50% of respondents, which is in line with the fact that more than 140K Indian students have been attracted due to the favorable opportunities of immigration; The USA ranks second, with 40% of students considering it, followed by the UK and Australia. Australia has become the least preferred destination which is quite obvious, as statistics show that access to Australia from India has dropped from K 80K in 2019 to less than 40K in 2021.
According to the report, there could be several reasons for this, of which Kovid-1 and the accompanying travel restrictions are the only ones. 95% of students believe that vaccination in India will make them more suitable for foreign travel and 75% of those who have delayed plans said that financial hardship is a big factor, part of which can be brought forward for a reason. Financial uncertainty in the current situation. For those considering moving abroad, the process is clearly delayed because so far only 5% of people have gained access. The majority (76%) are still researching either their options or the application process. This is again due to the severe delay in the board’s results which prevented students from starting the declining period with foreign universities and is likely to leave early next year.
