The COVID-19 crisis has affected worldwide societies and economies, and will profoundly reshape our society as it continues. While the crisis is introducing new risks it is a big question that what will education abroad look like when the current public health crisis is over. Some students are concerned about getting visa applications processed; the availability of job opportunities in India after graduation is over and have travel restrictions. One of the major concerns of the students is the rejection of their student visas. But this crisis should be taken as an opportunity where education abroad can be redefined for a time when the definition of boundaries is evolving and when the world and the globe need educated people from around the world.
At the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, colleges and universities have been working very hard to bring students back to the colleges to complete their academic courses. Through working closely with providers of foreign education services and international university partners, universities have adjusted curriculum standards and policies to accommodate an increasing number of students as compared to India. Institutions are likely to be very cautious about restarting education abroad the way it has been practiced up to now. In reality, institutions have an opportunity to recognize and envision abroad education in new ways that will help to make it a high-impact activity at this moment. Some education consultants are always available for helping with every query. Gopalan Anish Acharya, Founder of Medveda and Educationalist, guides students to study abroad smartly.
Gopalan Anish Acharya, Founder of Medveda Educare Pvt Ltd said, “We are no longer describing education abroad as literally crossing national boundaries. Rather, we should think of it as an opportunity that promotes the mobility of the minds of students – minds engaged in knowing other cultures and worldviews which help to alleviate their biases. Studying abroad does not mean only geographically but also viewing it as a model that can be done in a wider variety of forms. Students should not give up on their dreams and aspirations of studying abroad. Don’t let this crisis bring you down and it is also very important to stay positive, and keep thinking about how you can make the best out of this situation and also keep adjusting to the changing situations.”
