With the great development and awareness in the field of education, a lot of Indian students have been flying to countries like Canada, USA and Italy for their higher studies. Now, the question is why there’s a surge in students willing to leave India for their studies. Most of the medical and engineering students in India are now going to other nations like Ukraine and Israel.
In the article below, we are presenting the top reasons for such step taken by the Indian students.
- Better Education System – Now, the first reason which must come to everyone’s mind is that the education system of these countries is far more advanced than Indian system, which is absolutely true. In India, major focus is applied on the theoretical learning and the practical knowledge is highly compromised. Even in real life impacting courses like law or civil engineering, you’ll find the students spending majority of their time mugging up the books in their classrooms only. The practical sessions are help just twice or thrice in a week, even in those, the colleges don’t have ample equipment for each student.
Whereas in the Universities of countries like USA or Canada, both theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge is kept side-by-side. The colleges conduct frequent field trips and exchange programs for a better exposure for their students and thus, their mindset also expands. In courses of art, history and fashion, students are made to visit the historical places and places of art to know about real art. All these differences contribute in making their education model superior to ours and thus, students tend to go there for their own good.
- Better Employment Opportunities – Another drawback of our system is that, as the education system does not focus upon skill building, the learning minds don’t get enough practical knowledge and thus, the job opportunities for them diminish. Plus, there are less job opportunities for them as well. Majority of the companies hiring engineers are not India based but having some foreign origin and giving jobs to the Indian youth.
In the foreign institutions, the students are made to work along with their studies to get early real life experience and after the completion of their studies, they are highly skilled and get a better job with better salary and the career growth is also fast there.
- Ultimate Immigration Decision – Nowadays, majority of the Indian students going to study abroad are with the mindset of settling there only. The foreign countries are well aware of the great potential our youth has and they highly benefit themselves from these. As a lack of skill building in our system, students once get to these nations, he finds nothing amusing in India and is influenced by their culture. And ultimately decides to migrate there with a permanent residence.
The USA and Canada provide a very accessible living arrangement for Indian students as well. They provide a 2 or 3 year work Visa for promising candidates and after that, the extension keeps on increasing.
These are the topmost reasons which count to the increasing migration of Indian students to other countries.
