The United States continues to be the preferred destination for Indian students seeking higher education.
Despite the impending recession and job losses, the United States remains the top choice for Indian students seeking higher education.
According to renowned education consultants and loan providers, the number of Indian students opting for financial assistance to study in the US has increased significantly in the past year. Experts expect this trend to continue in the coming months, as the application period for US universities closes in August.
There are several reasons for the rising appeal of a US education among Indian students. These include:
Sanjay Laul, Founder and Advisor of education management company M Square Media (MSM), said:
“The United States has always been renowned for its exceptional educational institutions and the opportunities it offers for personal and professional growth. Given the ongoing economic uncertainty, Indian students are seeking to develop their skills and knowledge in a competitive environment like the one provided by this destination market.”
Indian students continue to enroll in undergraduate and MBA programs at top-ranked US universities. STEM programs additionally grant students the opportunity to stay and work in the country for three years after completing their studies, while non-STEM students are eligible for one year of post-study work.
“The emphasis on research, innovation, and practical application of knowledge in the US education system makes it an ideal choice for Indian students aspiring to excel in their chosen fields.”
Laul also emphasized the significance of the US in cultivating future global leaders. Indian students studying in the US not only benefit from the high-quality education they receive but also contribute to the rich diversity on American campuses. This cultural exchange fosters mutual understanding and nurtures long-term relationships between the two countries.”
“The United States is a leading education destination for Indian students, and I expect this trend to continue in the years to come. Indian students are well-positioned to make substantial contributions to their respective fields, help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), address critical skill gaps in the job market, and tackle crucial social and economic challenges.”
