A study abroad experience offers a lot more than world class education and better opportunities. Diversity in its true sense, a unique perspective to the world, global jobs and of course, the beauty and culture the world has to offer are a few things that Indian students studying and staying abroad look forward to. The aspiration to become a truly global citizen is something that only a certain number of years of staying and experiencing life in other countries can fulfil. International education has come a long long way from being the fascination of the rich to becoming the necessity of those who wish to live, rather than just stay alive.

Whether it be people who have been integral to India's Independence, such as Mohandas Karamchand 'Mahatma' Gandhi or Jawaharlal Nehru, or people who have built companies in India such as Ratan Tata or Anil Dhirubhai Ambani, or even heads of global firms like PepsiCo's erstwhile CEO, Indra Nooyi or Google's Sundar Pichai or Microsoft's Satya Nadella, Indians abroad have changed the way the world thinks. They have brought Google Search to your phones and Independence to our nation. The doors to such opportunities are today being opened by several, but the flag bearers are folk like Monash College, who have associated with TimesPro, the education arm of the legacy Times Group to bring their pioneering International Pathway program to India.

The number of Indian students studying abroad is increasing rapidly, and a nearly 50% surge in the past decade is proof of the pudding. As per UNESCO data, by August 2017, over 3,00,000 Indian students were studying abroad. The reasons for an Indian teen to pursue higher studies abroad are myriad. International universities offer a vast variety of courses and better quality of education. That apart, the independent thought process that a student imbibes by way of global education is one that also enables youth to explore more opportunities. The prestige a family feels while their ward is studying and staying abroad, is of course, additional motivation. What is students' choice? As per government of India data, while the study-abroad options for Indian students may be as many as 86 countries, the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada are the most popular choices. Of the total number of students abroad in 2017, a whopping 69.5% chose the aforementioned countries as their destination for higher studies. Even though traditionally the USA leads the charts with just over 1 lakh Indian students, Australia has been emerging as the recent favourite. As of August 2018, Australia houses over 68,000 Indian students, up 16.8% from 2017, says data released by the Australian high commission in India. Both countries believe education to be a flagship sector as part of their bilateral relationship, and are doing everything they can to encourage exchange. Why Australia? Australian universities have an impressive international reputation. The environment is safe, and immigration policies favourable. Australia offers world class standards of living with considerably lower expenditure than the USA and the UK. Up for grabs are attractive work opportunities to students, which can offset living costs to a bare minimum. Equal opportunities are ensured for students who have graduated out of a specific course, from any university in the country. The biggest advantage however, is the work rights - Australia allows students a work visa for two years post study. A student can completely recover the expenses incurred during the study period in these two years. Study options in Australia Australian universities are actively working on increasing awareness among Indian students. Education institutes in India such as TimesPro, in conjunction with varsities such as Monash and Queensland among others, are offering pathway programs to make global education not only more accessible, but also less expensive. A pathway is a learning experience that provides international students lateral entry to various undergraduate or graduate programs at universities, by offering them an academic foundation and essential language skills. Pathway programs enable Indian students to join international courses on Indian shores and then continue their degree abroad at a later stage. This is especially beneficial for students who, after graduating school, may have missed admission into the international universities of their choice but do not want to have gaps in their education. One such program is the Monash College International Pathway Program (MCIP) by TimesPro, conducted over eight months in India, specifically designed for students who wish to study business or commerce undergraduate degrees at Monash University. With MCIP, you won't just learn theories and trends, but also develop a more creative and confident mindset with hands-on training and practical exposure. After successful completion of the program and meeting entry requirements, you will have guaranteed* entry into second year at Monash University. *terms and conditions apply A global education inculcates a sense of global citizenship. The 'Land of Oz' a not just a brilliant option for education for young boys and girls, but is also a beautiful country with a unique culture, waiting to be embraced.

The number of international students globally rose from 28,00,000 to 41,00,000 in less than a decade from 2005 . As of 2017, of the 50,00,000 students globally who are studying outside their home country, almost 3,00,000 were Indians, and of this figure, more than 1/3rd went to North America, followed by close to 50,000 who went to Australia. The fact is that more and more students today are opting for a global education. Why? There are several facets of a global knowledge bank that excites both parents and children. What do you want to become? An education abroad gives a student the opportunity and independence to make decisions, manage finances, deal with challenges and become solution-oriented that a stay-at-home education does not. This makes her or him the ideal prospect for hiring brands, especially those with international operations. An India is different from an Australia is different from a Canada is different from a UK in everything from how people behave to what they buy to how they connect with brands. An understanding of these nuances thus makes an international student a global citizen and a right-fit-hire for global roles. Further education Global educational institutions look for several aspects among their prospective students, among which are a hunger for growth and something unique brought to the table. An add-on too is a dedication to academia. All of these aspects shine through in some one who has studied across geographies. Having friends, acquaintances and references across multiple countries thus makes a student an ideal fit for that reclusive PhD or Masters. Global thought process Students who bring in a global thought process and yet understand the local nuances of different countries are sought after not just by recruiters or colleges, but by the various options that life throws at one. Imagine backpacking across Masai Mara with friends from France and Croatia! Football references apart, international exposure broadens the horizons of the mind and gives one the confidence to have conversations with people ranging from CEOs to venture capitalists. The globetrotter! Students who study abroad have also taken a huge leap of faith, as have their parents. This investment of belief often comes back manifold, with students choosing to travel extensively and learn from life, the greatest teacher of all. Thus, a student in Australia will have the options of exploring New Zealand and Tasmania, and one to Scotland, all of Europe. In knowledge terms, the girl or boy who goes abroad is an Indian, but the one who comes back is an Indian and a global citizen. What an education abroad may imbibe in you, or if you are a parent, then your ward, is a lifetime experience. And one would rather say "I did" than "What if I had"!
