Covid-19 Vaccine Might Be the Green Light for Abroad Study Students
Needless to say, Covid-19 has proved to be a disruption for many students who were planning to study abroad. While most have stalled their plans for overseas education currently, some have completely dropped the idea until the pandemic comes to a halt. A minor percentage also includes students who are still willing to join school abroad in 2021 amidst the roaring ruckus of the pandemic.
For all of these students, the announcement of Covid-19 has taken place at a good time. Vaccinations might just give international students hope to continue with their dreams of foreign studies. If sources are to be believed, 21% of international students have expressed their desire to go to foreign institutions in 2021 ever since the announcement of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Rise in Number of Students Who Want to Study Abroad
Indian students have especially shown interest in pursuing their international study plans in the light of the coronavirus vaccine announcement. Surveys report that almost 400,000 students have already applied for mandatory tests like TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System). A quarter of this number is Indian students who are positive about their dream of studying in renowned international universities in popular destinations like the UK, US, Canada, and Australia.
Shift in Interests and New Reasons for Studying Abroad
Though the craze for study abroad remains in Indian students, a major shift in interest and college preferences has been seen. Now, instead of going to regular business schools in Oxford and Harvard, students are searching for options that support their passion and hobbies. More and more international students are taking time to explore their interests.
Unusual places like Ireland, New Zealand, Russia, and Prague are becoming hotspots amongst students. YourEduAdvisors, one of the most renowned Overseas Education Consultants in Delhi have been receiving queries from Indian students who are interested more in following their passion instead of following the set pattern. Vocational courses are also becoming a hot trend among international study students.
Exploring New Places in Light of Covid-19
While many are ready to take the risk of going abroad amidst the pandemic, there is still a percentage of Indian students who want to be safe and consider options that are less or completely unaffected by the coronavirus. Options like Sweden and Israel have seen a boom in applications from Indian students. Sources report that number of applications is almost double this year as compared to previous figures.
