NO DROPDOWN IN THE INDIAN STUDENTS GOING ABROAD
Indian Students Aspiring to Study Abroad
The current report of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), suggests that there has been a 20% decrease in the overseas expenditure related to education, but as per education consultants, the number of students going for overseas education has remained steady. A New Delhi based senior education consultant views that the data revealed by RBI, shows only the expenditure made on overseas education, but the number of scholarships offered to Indian students has also increased. He mentions that the decline in the expenditure is due to the increase in the number of scholarships awarded to the Indian students. He stated that, "this would explain the overall quantum of spends on education abroad coming down. While the rupee also has a role to play, there is no trend that shows Indians going abroad to study has dropped". Also the data received from the agencies involved in tracking education applicants finds that India is showing an upward trend in students going overseas.
