Safe To Study Abroad Now? Wait, Hybrid Or Fly?

Singhania Quest+ conducted webinars with 41 foreign universities from 12+ Countries in a span of 45 days.

Singhania Quest+ Counsellors cautioned prospective Indian students to keen on pursuing a foreign degree programme through an off-campus mode during the recently conducted webinars by Singhania Quest+. The justification of a huge investment for an entire year cannot replace a physical on-campus learning experience in an international setting. The pressure for admissions was palpable at the webinar that witnessed over 2500 prospective students from across 10 states across India.  Students should NOT opt for online studies in foreign universities offering admissions for a period of 1 year or more amidst this challenging scenario triggered by the pandemic was an unequivocal recommendation by renowned educational counsellors.

Keeping the current scenario in mind, the key findings of the seminar were:

  • The mobility of the students have been restricted across the countries impacting the admissions 
  • Countries like Australia and New Zealand are closed for admission till mid-2022
  • Countries like Canada, the USA, UK, Switzerland and Ireland with the change in administration and stronger infrastructure are opening-up 
  • Some countries chose the hybrid model of education in order to restrict the number of students on campus due to limited space
  • Countries like UK, Switzerland, Germany and Ireland likely to open in September-October for offline education or largely offline and less online
  • Canada has been a good host to overseas students as they extended 1200 Canadian dollars for those who have lost their jobs during the pandemic. The same one was done in Ireland supporting students away from their homes who lost their part-time jobs.
  • Apart from engineering and business, liberal arts, sciences, mathematics, computer science, hospitality, design and animation are a few popular courses abroad

Singhania Quest+, a digital Edtech platform conducted 3 career counselling webinars for students to explore various career options that are available internationally and witnessed a participation of over 2500 students. These sessions were exclusively for students who are grappling with multiple issues such as admissions, safety, vaccination, scholarships etc. The entire event delved deeper into the minds of the students and presented some rich insights on how foreign universities and Indian students are bridging the gap in terms of justifying their biggest investment of a lifetime.
