Financial aids to study abroad

Studying Abroad Could Be Burden On The Pockets

Studying abroad has always been a fascination for Indian students and appeals more alluring due to magnified benefits attached to studying in an international university.

It is a burden on the pockets for Indian middle class parents but still they are ready to send their wards to study abroad primarily because a well-qualified graduate from a recognized international university gets absorbed in almost any industry in any part of the world with a good salary package.

Parents take strains to send their wards overseas, but this burden could be minimized or even could be nullified if the following measures are accepted.

Bank Loans

Availing bank loans for studying abroad is the best option available for students. Government of India promotes education and these loans are available at the lowest interest rates and even lower for girl students.

Students wouldn't need to take any financial assistance from parents if they opt for bank loans, as these loans are stress free and would take a month time for approval.

The repayment options are also quiet liberal which gives time to students to settle down with a job and then repay the loan. It has been observed that international graduates are able to repay their loans within 2 years time.

It is one of the most convenient modes for almost all the parents, but if someone doesn't like to take any debts then there are other methods available.


Scholarships are offered to deserving candidates `who get good scores in entrance exams. These are offered to limited number of students with excellent profiles and could be either partial or complete. This option is very appealing and convenient for bright students with good profiles.

Students can work 20 hours a week in their part time jobs and could even take full time jobs during vacation that is 40 hours a week, which could help them to bear their daily expenses like living, food and others.

This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.
