The majority of youth would jump at the prospect of studying overseas as it opens up a whole new world of opportunities for students. As per a recent study, it is estimated that over 1.8 million Indian students may study abroad by 2024. It is hardly a surprise as the number of foreign students, especially from India, arriving in the US, UK or Canada for education is going up considerably. However, today we will talk about certain conditions prevailing in some countries that could be bad for foreign students. So, let us get into the adverse situations one by one.
Avoid Italy If You Don’t Like Taking It Too Easy
In case a student happens to be very energetic and cannot stand laid back attitude then going to Italy can be a terrible idea. Italians are known to take their sweet timing in several matters and the same could be seen in their universities as well. As per a study, university graduates in Italy are a lot behind other countries with regard to skill sets and employment competitiveness. So, if you are a person who is wedded to the idea of swiftness then steer clear of Italy.
Skip Brazil If Safety Is Of Paramount Significance
Safety is one of the vital aspects for every foreigner in a new country, even with students it is the same. Therefore, those students who are very particular about safety should not even think of going to Brazil. Night outs are a strict no, especially for females, and pick-pocketing is commonplace in the country. Wikipedia states that in terms of the absolute number of murders in a year, Brazil has the most murders of any country by the total number (62,318) followed by India (29,000), the USA (25,000) and Mexico (24,576). So, if you are very safety conscious then avoid Brazil like a plague.
Think Twice About England If You Happen To Be Budget Conscious
England indeed has some of the best universities across the globe but the country happens to be a costly place to study as well. In fact, London is popular as one of the most expensive cities in the world. And, the country’s currency, the Pound Sterling, happens to be one of the most expensive in the world, implying the students would require large wads of local currencies to get a decent amount in the UK. If a student is mired in financial constraints or shorn of a fully-funded scholarship, then the candidate is best advised to look beyond England.
