More Than 70% Indian Students Aspire To Study Abroad Are Willing To Opt For Hybrid Study Model

More than 70% of Indian students who aspire to study abroad are willing to opt for a hybrid model– a combination of online and offline learning – in a bid to save money, according to a survey.

Over 4,000 candidates were involved in the study in which 72% of the students surveyed have opted for the hybrid model to cut down on their expenses without compromising the quality of education. This figure rose from 55% just a few months ago, the survey results highlighted.

Hybrid learning is practical as it is relatively cost-effective and saves time. But students’ inclination towards hybrid learning was caused by the most recent wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. In many cases, parents took the final call for these students.

About 66.8% of the students have accepted that the ongoing wave of COVID-19 has impacted their overseas study plan. In a lot of cases, parents were uncomfortable with their children moving overseas amid a global pandemic.

However, the handling of COVID-19 by destination countries was the third most important criterion while choosing a country for studies.

The United States of America emerged as the most favoured overseas education location among Indian students with 41% of the votes, followed by Canada with 21%, Australia with 18% and the United Kingdom with 16%.

The survey also revealed that 58% of students had a limited understanding of the visa guidelines and that the pandemic has contributed to this information asymmetry.
