Predictions for What will Happen in Higher Education in 2017

Future of Study Abroad

The year 2016 was momentous for everyone involved in overseas education, whether in India or abroad. We at Global Tree saw (and helped) record numbers of students achieve their dreams of studying at world-renowned institutions around the globe. As visa regulations tightened in some countries and were relaxed elsewhere, we rolled with the punches to keep things easy and simple for our clients. At Global Tree, we're excited for what 2017 will bring. As well as greater prosperity and freedom of travel, we expect a significant increase in new intakes across the higher education academic year. From the USA (which has long been the traditional hotbed of global higher education) to Australia and everywhere in between, more and more universities will open their doors to students around the world. We expect Indian learners to form a very large proportion of those numbers.

Speaking of the USA, it's one of the geographies of particular interest for us and the overseas education industry at large. Community colleges seem as though they will finally get more of the attention they deserve, with President-Elect Donald Trump already promising to focus on jobs and grassroots education. This could make the USA an even more attractive destination, as community colleges offer a fundamentally sound education for a fraction of the price that state-run and private universities charge. And meanwhile, traditional four-year colleges will continue to actively invite Indian and foreign students, who pump billions of dollars per year into the American economy, in the form of tuition costs and living expenses. 2017 could also be the year that European and UK universities begin to re-open and re-welcome Indians into their student bodies.

While the impending arrival of the Brexit makes the forecast here difficult to pinpoint, a considerable shift in education policy is not out of the question. In both the UK and continental Europe, where many countries require an influx of foreign students to study and eventually supplement their populations and labor forces, opportunities could arise that diligent, talented Indian students could capitalize on. Whatever happens, and wherever it happens, 2017 will be a bright year for lakes of Indian students. This will be the year that many of you finally realize your dreams of studying overseas, be it in the UK, the USA, Australia, or a growing market. And it will be the beginning of a very exciting, international journey for everyone involved!

So from all of us at Global Tree, all the very best for 2017!

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.
