Which is Better – Higher Studies in Abroad or India?

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. Some times, 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.

3. Quality of Education

While it is true that the standard of Indian education is evolving, there is still a lot of development that needs to be done.

One of the most significant grey areas is the lack of opportunities for the practical application of theoretical knowledge and skills gained through conceptual understanding. Little wonder that lakhs of Indian students are unemployable struggling to get job placements after graduation.

The problem is not with the student but the Indian education system where the emphasis is on rote learning to remember concepts rather than understanding them. Classroom experience is limited to classroom lectures with little to no class participation. Maintain a good attendance record is the top concern for both faculty and students with little or no interest in either teaching or learning.

Students interested in pursuing research do not receive enough support from Indian institutes in terms of finance, infrastructure, and resources.

The student’s natural curiosity is crushed under the high academic pressure from Indian schools and colleges, leaving no room for innovative thinking and development.

In contrast, there is a lot of focus on student-driven learning, engaging them in the active learning process via class participation, discussions, case studies, and practical off- and on-campus experiences that make learning a fun, productive and meaningful experience.

Universities abroad provide abundant resources such as sophisticated technology, equipment, and infrastructure which encourage and motivate students to conduct in-depth research.

There is a lot of focus on creative thinking and innovation in the education system abroad which organically builds a student’s self-esteem and confidence levels. Studying abroad polishes your soft skills, and allows you to focus on your hobbies ranging from mountaineering to painting which isn’t given as much importance in India.

4. Flexible Curriculum

In India, the focus is only on the popular STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) courses. Very few options are available for students who are interested in pursuing other streams of education. Even if their desired course is available, the school does not have the expertise and accreditation to prepare its students for a more prosperous career path.

The sheer range and variety of courses available to students abroad in countries like USA, UK, Canada or Australia are mind-boggling. You are sure to find a course of your interest in a reputed college and universities abroad in the most unconventional and contemporary subjects like sports, baking, psychology, filmmaking or entertainment with greater scope and structure. You may end up with a diploma if you study these courses in India. But abroad, you will study in-depth and have a fully accredited Bachelor’s Degree which holds a lot of value in your field of interest.

As a student studying abroad, you can opt for ‘dual major’, ‘minor’ and ‘free electives’ when choosing a course and allowing you to specialize in diverse subjects. You could be doing your masters in engineering with few credits in accounting and marketing as well. It throws open more career doors for you in various streams in the global markets.

Apart from flexibility in courses, universities abroad gives you the freedom to work on a part-time basis while pursuing your education. Many universities abroad allow international students to work on campus, and off-campus.

5. Emigration

When you study and work in India, emigrating to a country of your choice becomes tougher.

But if emigration is one of your goals for better prospects for your career and family, then it makes sense to start early and look to study abroad at the graduate level. Many countries like the USA, Canada, and Australia offer attractive job prospects after graduation, and their flexible immigration rules allow students to look for employment after completing their studies.

80% of students from India and other Asian countries choose to remain in the USA after completing their graduate and doctoral studies according to the latest US National Science Foundation’s Survey.

Obtaining permanent residence abroad becomes easier once a job is secured, helps gain access to higher salaries leading to a better lifestyle and facilities.

Conclusion

Studying abroad is the clear winner here as there is a vast difference in the quality of education between the Indian and International institutions. It is the better option out of the two.

Today, you have various funding and scholarship opportunities available for your benefit. The benefits of an international education help you build a stable and secure career and future.

What will get you admission in universities abroad

Let’s look at all the important factors that determine admission chances for an applicant like you, in universities abroad.

Factors that influence an admission outcome:

Strength of previous academic program(s) and institution(s) – There is no denying the fact that the better your college/university, the higher your admission chances are. Almost all universities abroad verify the credentials of the institution where you have studied. Based on the ranking/grade and reputation of the institution (for example, ‘A’ grade of NAAC), foreign universities make admission decisions, in addition to considering other factors.

GPAs/Percentages obtained in all post-secondary academics – While the percentages obtained in 10th and 12th classes are also considered, the most important consideration will be the student’s percentage/GPA during the Bachelor’s degree. Equally important is the number of backlogs/attempts (or the lack of them!) while basing their decision. The lesser or lack of backlogs, the higher are the admission chances.

Statement of Purpose/Essays – Perhaps the MOST important factor in making an admission decision is the SOP. Who, what and how – if these points are addressed properly, admission and financial aid chances will be much brighter. In fact, we would say that an SOP or essays will play a 50% role amongst all the factors in decision-making.  That’s why, Manhattan Review (MR) has expert editing service to get all your admission documents (such as SOP/Essays, Recommendations, CV etc.) appropriately edited to ensure applicants’ success.

GRE scores, especially in the math or quantitative section – A score of above 150 in the Quantitative section plays a vital role in decision-making of universities. Some universities require more than 155 too. At the same time, make sure to get a higher score of 150+ even in the Verbal section too. Never ignore the AWA section. For admission into top universities, an AWA score of 4.5 to 4.0 is considered to be the minimum!

Letters of recommendation – The letters of reference make or break an applicant’s chances for not only admission, but financial aid too. While it is not necessary that each of the recommender has to refer glowingly, a clear expression about the strengths and weaknesses of the applicant, along with an assessment of how the student is suitable for the program and the university will make a huge impact on the decision-making of the university.

The competitiveness of the pool of applicants for the semester – Many students are under the impression that just based on their good scores and academics will they be able to ‘surely’ get admission. Ironically, such performers are plenty across the world and many of them apply to colleges just like other applicants. As a result, there will be ‘competition’ amongst the applicant pool, which will determine admission chances. Therefore, it is always best to select universities that are not only ‘Best Fit’, but also ‘Safe’ for a profile.

English proficiency scores – Of equal importance is a good score of above 85 in TOEFL or 7 in IELTS, that will establish the fact that a student is proficient to learn further in English, at the Master’s level. However, please note that admission is possible even with scores much lesser than those mentioned above. MR will ensure that for our students!

Applicant’s additional experience – Another major factor is the applicant’s ‘relevant’ work experience in the field that he/she intends to study. This factor will certainly improve admission chances, which also gives the admission committee members the confidence that such students (with experience) could absorb the subject, enhance their learning and complete their programs quickly.

Manhattan Review takes care of each aspect that makes our students successful with their admission, aid and visa opportunities. With the famed Admission service, MR provides:

  • Identification of the right program and specialization based on the applicant’s requirement and profile.
  • Shortlisting of most appropriate universities – for the program, budget, requirement and specifications
  • Guidance on the whole admission process right from the beginning till completion.
  • Editing services for all documents
  • Providing of samples, guidelines, checklists and formats for all the required documents.
  • Assistance with the selection of universities
  • Applying and follow-up with universities regarding admission
  • Guidance on visa interview documentation
  • Preparation for the visa interview with mock interview sessions
  • Pre-departure Orientation
  • Education loans, travel assistance, Foreign Exchange assistance, medical insurance etc.

With careful and professional planning, MR will make sure that each of our students are SUCCESSFUL in each aspect of the whole process, till they land in their dreamland. We are just a phone call away. Or better still, our doors always await your visit for any clarifications and assistance.

Come, take the right step and enter the hallowed portals of most reputed universities throughout the world!

Education Trumped in USA?

Education Trumped? –

l

One of the most discussed topics among our student community – especially those looking towards US – is the effect of education getting ‘trampled’ under the incoming Presidency of Trump.

How untrue! Are we not counting the birds before they are hatched?

The US Government makes 32 billion dollars per year from international students who study in USA. Nothing will displease the new Government or its President if this comes down. It is a fact that the policies as laid out by Trump are mostly towards illegal immigrants and curbing excessive issue of work visas for foreign nationals. With the waves of ‘nationalism’ sweeping world-wide, it is imperative that Trump has to consider supporting the domestic work force and accept the alternatives next.

It is also equally imperative that ‘skilled’ work force – especially in the IT field – is hard to get just like that! Even if you get some, the work force (domestic) is so pricey!! Countries like India, with its knowledgeable, competitive and highly cost-effective work force is the most attractive catch for any country, looking to cut costs and save pennies. So, if you restrict employment opportunities for international labor (aka work force), the ever-so-sensitive Indians will not consider studying in the USA, which is their penultimate step to become a part of the American dream. With India sending the second highest number of students to USA after China, it is difficult to ignore the dangers of restricting international students from studying and subsequent employment.

‘No education’ step will lead to ‘no employment’, which will ultimately lead to so many complications for the US economy. There is no way any reasonable bureaucrat or politician will affect their own country by their own actions.  In other words, as long as Indian students study hard and work harder for a cost-effective pay, they will always be in demand. And they cannot be ‘trumped’.

Don’t you agree?

If you do, start packing your bags and prepare to fly to USA for better education and brighter career, with Manhattan Review helping you all the way!

 

Online education USA, anyone? –

 

Quite frequently, we receive enquiries if international students could do online courses while they are within the USA.

As you know, online courses are those programs which the students could complete without attending college and in fact, without their presence in the city or country where the college is offering. This is becoming one of the popular forms of learning for many students across the world because of several reasons – convenience, flexibility, lower costs, better education and comfort of learning from their homes.

Most of the institutions around the world (colleges and universities) are offering online courses for students world-wide. In other words, education has become an entity without borders – whoever it may be – irrespective of age, experience and previous education – can take up a course, complete it and obtain a diploma or degree with ease and convenience.

So, what is stopping you from taking up online education in USA, when you are within USA? The rules governing a student visa (F1 Visa) are quite simple and straight-forward. If you want to study in USA, get a visa for full-time education. Since online education is literally part-time, students cannot meet the visa conditions and therefore, cannot do online courses when studying in USA full-time.

What are the rules governing full-time education in USA? If a student enrolls for 9 credit hours per semester at the Master’s level and 12 credit hours per semester at the Bachelor’s level, he is considered to be ‘in-status’ – a legal, full-time international student. Any one doing less than those prescribed here will be treated as “out of status”, which will bar them from staying back in USA to study on F1 visa.  So, literally, international students can only study full-time in US universities and cannot do online (part-time) courses.

Is there no option to do some course of interest, online? Yes, that is possible. Students can do ONE course per semester part-time or online. This course can be used towards completion of the program (Bachelor’s or Master’s) or to gain knowledge in an unrelated field.

It might be tempting to think that since the online courses are offered part-time, they might be cheaper and cost effective. Unfortunately, NO. The cost of online courses are as costly as class-room courses in most of the US universities.  This is why, though there is an option to do at least one course, international students especially from India, do not prefer to study online.

One strong reason is the fact that Indian students are hard-working. They want to immerse in the class room experience and gain full advantage from such learning, training, and networking opportunities. What can they benefit by staying back in their accommodations and learning one or more courses online? According to a majority of students, Nothing! So, full-time education within the classrooms is the most popular form of learning for our students from India.

When are you joining them in USA?

Have a great December.

US Visas – change in photo requirements!

usa_visitor_visa

Effective 1st November, applicants for any category of visa to USA will not be allowed to wear spectacles, unless they have to wear it for medical conditions.

However, The US Passports and International Travel, US Department of State ­ Bureau of Consular Affairs, has clarified about a small exemption. “If any applicant insists on wearing eye glasses for medical reasons, he has to obtain a signed statement from a medical professional or health practitioner”, the rule says.

Many Indians (both students and others) were rejected visa last year due to poor quality of glasses and other technical reasons. Worldwide, more than two lakh people submitted poor quality photos which could not be accepted due to poor quality of glasses.

“We had to put their passport applications on hold because we couldn’t clearly identify them from their photo. We can see you more clearly now and you will experience fewer US passport and US visa application delays and can move faster through US ports of entry,“ the announcement adds.

So, students beware! When you go for a photograph for US visa purpose, please get it without your spectacles. Avoid last minute hassles.

UK – not OK!

Under the new visa rules announced by the UK Home Office, anyone applying after November 24 2016 under the Tier 2 intra-company transfer (ICT) category would be required to meet a higher salary threshold requirement of 30,000 pounds from the earlier limit of 20,800 pounds.

Indian IT workers accounted for nearly 90 per cent of visas issued under this route. “The first of two phases of changes to Tier 2, announced by the government in March following a review by the Independent Migration Advisory Committee, will affect applications made on or after November 24 unless stated otherwise,” a UK Home Office statement said.

You might be wondering as to why you should be concerned about this news, since you are a student. Well, when you see the trend of UK government placing restrictions on the student visas first and then on employees later, the pattern seems to be clear – they don’t want to encourage students or employees to come and study or live in UK. Also, with ‘Brexit’ (see our Newsletter dated 4th July 2016), things are looking gloomy for students. Are you OK with this?
