How To Make International Education Affordable

You can easily achieve your dreams of STUDYING ABROAD even if you have limited funds. The decision to send a child abroad for further studies is being planned almost as soon as a child steps into their school at Kindergarten level – parents are carefully selecting schools, facilities and curriculum with an eventuality of the right outcome for their child.

Planning : Parents who ask the question at the right time "am I likely to send my child abroad for further studies?" will realise that with enough time for financial and investment planning they actually will be able to fund an international degree for their child, and that an undergraduate or postgraduate degree is no longer out-of-reach. It is important to plan ahead to give sufficient time for applying to the institutions abroad. As most institutions insist on evidence of language proficiency, students have to appear for the language proficiency tests such as IELTS/TOEFL/PTEwell ahead in time. These scores are essential both for admissions as well as while applying for visa.

Scholarships :When thinking about scholarships, students usually think about scholarship/bursary offered by the university they are applying to. While this type of funding is increasing for good students applying to international universities, there are also an increasing number of scholarships available by Indian Trusts, NGOs, community initiatives and private organisations to students based on their academic merit or financial need. While students may not be able to cover all their expenses through one scholarship, they can apply to multiple organisations and may be pleasantly surprised by how much expenses this can cover. Scholarships are classified into many forms- Merit Based Scholarships, Student Specific Scholarships, Need Based Scholarships, Program Based Scholarships, Teaching Assistant Scholarship, Research Assistant Scholarship, Resident Assistant Scholarship, College Specific Scholarship, etc.

Education loans : As more and more Indians are opting to study abroad, funding of studies becomes an important requirement and Indian banks have come to the rescue of students in fulfilling their dreams of gaining an international degree. This is a great way to fund a child's further studies abroad. For one, it makes the student more responsible and accountable. With the new tax benefits for education loans, it is an attractive choice for parents. Some loan providers also offer a subsidised interest rate for the girl child and minority communities. Moreover, dedicated education loan companies offer unique services and schemes where, subject to terms and conditions, students can get a 100 per cent finance and no upper limit on the loan sanctioned amount.

Return on investment : Education today is being seen as an investment and as with every investment, it is important to consider its returns. When selecting a course, university and destination, the important factor to keep in mind is — will my 'investment' yield a result better than the market rate? Parents will find that international education will provide one of the highest returns on investment where the recovery of the capital can be made in as little as two years, once the student starts earning. For e.g.- of Stanford University, tuition fees for CS / EE Engineering could go up to US$50,000 per annum but when you compare it with the median salary of US $96,000 (for undergrads) and US$109,455 (for postgrads) per year, it is a great return on investment!
