Overseas education is the best step to take your education to the next level. Students opt for an overseas education during their graduation years. It is equally or in fact more famous for professional, post graduate or fellowship courses. Generally, overseas education is best recommended for a higher studies course, after you have completed 12+3, 12+4 years of education, for obvious reasons that you are more mature in handling the world outside your homeland in a better manner. Well, that is not what I wish to draw your attention to. What I wish to question is the importance of overseas education in our lives. How important is it to gain a degree from a foreign university? And what about those who do not gain one such degree? Do they really stand a chance in this rat race?
Well, higher education comes with a lot of cookie points for you. One, it is a high status value that gets attached to your name. The social status of a “foreign educated” is an altogether refreshing and an overwhelming one. Second, the job security that one gets after earning a degree from abroad is very high. Recruiters run behind such candidates and organizations are more than happy to have someone like them. And the job offers are also well above the creamy layers with great starting packages. So the usual struggle to start off with any given package and work with any given profile goes absent in such cases. A better living standard comes hand in hand with such developments. Most importantly, a respectable degree from abroad leads to self development and self improvement. One definitely learns a lot in terms of adapting and adjusting to novel ways of the world, knowing and understanding new people and coping with the new challenges of a different way of life.
There is no denial to the wonders that overseas education can do to you.
This is not to speak ill of overseas education in any way. It is a great opportunity for any student and a dream chance to give wings to their aspirations. My rejection is to the obsession of it! The unwanted attention that it gathers is a serious NO for me. Treatment of a “non-foreign degree” as inferior is just not acceptable. The sole criterion has to be merit.
