Get Easy Tips For Student Visa Process To USA

In the latest report on global exchange data by the Open Doors Report on International Education Exchange, which is published by the Institute of International Education, the number of students who Study Abroad in US globally has increased over the last year despite the changes in policies instituted by the new government and has now reached a record high of 1.08 million students.

And leading the change has been the Indian student demographic. Students from the two top countries that send students to Study Abroad in USA, namely China and India make up nearly half of the total strength of International Students In America.

According to the report, students from India who go to Study Abroad in USA have shown the greatest growth, year on year with an estimated 12.3% increase in the number of students who come to Study Abroad from India.

This has been the third successive year in which the biggest growth in the number of students has come from India.

Students Who Study Abroad Benefit US Institutions

According to the Department of Commerce in the USA, students who came to Study Abroad in USA from all over the world, have contributed more than 30 Billion USD to the economy.

The students bring in this money by the tuition fees they pay and the expenses they incur as a part of boarding and living expenses. According to the report by Open Doors around 60% of the students who study abroad in the US does not depend on financial aid from the institution itself, but rely on funding their education through their family funds or accept grants from their earlier alma-mater.

Increase In Number Of Indian Students Who Study Abroad In USA

The primary increase in the number of students was seen at the graduate level and with those who are in the OPT scheme. About a quarter of these students were those who had a degree in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) subjects with those with a degree in Business and Humanities coming in second.

The report also stated that the number of students from India, who Study Abroad in USA has actually doubled over the last 10 years, despite, reports to the contrary, that Indians are losing confidence in the US education visa. According to the report, the top five states in America in terms of International Student strength are California, New York, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts.

In spite of the increased numbers, one must keep in mind that there has been a marginal decline in the growth rate of the number of students who opt to Study Abroad in USA from India.

The growth rate of Indian students has declined from 24.9 percent last year to around 12.3 percent in the current year. It is important to note that while the number of students who study abroad has increased the rate of year on year growth has declined.

It is thought that this decline in the rate of growth may be attributed to the new Government and the restrictive immigration policies instituted by it. It is heartening to note, however, that the number of students who Study Abroad from India has continued to grow, thus cementing the confidence that Indian students have in the US Education System

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. 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.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
