Of India’s population of 1.26 billion, almost 50% of which comprised of people below the age of 25. India is second after China in international student enrolment in schools across the globe. This is the exact reason why the preference for counties abroad has been the subject of discussion in many platforms.

Studying abroad can also help one explore new possibilities and indulge in new activities. One could try new sports, arts and activities and expand their horizons.

1. Ease of Admission:
Dream institutes of the country like IIMs (Indian Institute of Management), IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) and AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) have high cutoffs for admission and the demands that the students top their respective entrance exams like, Joint Entrance Exams (JEE mains) for engineering colleges and the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for medical colleges. There is, hence, no guaranteed admission for these pioneer institutions even for brightest students. Easy admission abroad is hence comparatively easier and Indian students prefer that.
Indian institutes only focus on rendering STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) courses. Students who wish to take up other courses are not left with much choice as there are no institutions in India that have the expertise or accreditation to render the course. But these courses like entertainment, sports and psychology can be easily taken up in a foreign university. However, the STEM fields are rising in popularity and they too can be pursued from top notch universities abroad.
Indian educational system resorts to rote learning to remember concepts rather than understanding them and this results in lack of opportunities for practical application of skills learned through conceptual understanding. This effects the students’ job opportunities. However, foreign institutions indulge students in class participation, dialogue exchange, case studies, and practical off- and on-campus experiences to make concepts clear. They also can benefit from the technological advances and infrastructure used for research purposes and well equipped labs.
Taking admissions in an international institution opens up emigration pathway. Several countries like US and Canada offer job prospects after completing the course.
Students studying subjects in research-centric areas like biology or pharmacy find it better to take up the course from abroad than from India due to the facilities and amenities that foreign universities offer. Pursuing education abroad helps one utilize sophisticated technologies, equipment and infrastructure to conduct in-depth research.

Best thing about Vivek Gupta Sir is his selfless counselling.

We live 100 Km’s away from Varanasi. The internet connection in our town is very weak and my parents are not that educated. For us, understanding the word RTGS was also very difficult. Thanks to Amit Pandey Sir, who is Gkworks Varanasi incharge, he helped us to do all small things. Going with us to get forex to helping us doing RTGS for fee payment, he was always there with us. He only helped us to apply for passport online and went with us to passport office Varanasi. Such support at ground level was provided by GKworks team both in Varanasi and Delhi.
My parents were not very comfortable to send me abroad especially my mother as I am the only son of my parents. I really wanted to become a doctor and thus approached Hemant Mishra Sir, director of Bareilly branch of GKWorks. He went out of his way to convince my mother. He would have come 5 times to my home, invited us to his office and home 10 times before my mother was finally convinced. It is only due to Hemant Sir in Bareilly that I am pursuing my course today. I wish GKworks and especially Bareilly branch all the very best to help many more students for their life dreams.
