Studying abroad is much cheaper than studying in India
Is studying abroad actually a cheaper option? Does the donation system prevalent in management colleges make studies in India an expensive affair? At a time when more number of students are opting for foreign universities for doing their higher studies in professional courses, do you think the donation system has a role to play? Let us discuss our 'study abroad' topic in a new perspective.
Studying in India, especially for professional courses, is very costly and expensive than other countries because there is no donation system for higher education in foreign universities.
For example, in India, you need to pay a donation for medical admission in a private or aided institution and donation is not as low as the fees of the college. There is almost a fixed rate for different courses like for MBBS- 50 to 60 lakhs, for BDS - 25 to 30 lakhs, for BAMS - 35 to 40 lakhs etc. But there is no such donation system for doing courses abroad. You need to pay the fees only (including expenses other than personal). It is also easier to take admission there unlike in India where there are so many procedures involved.
I agree that institutes run by managements might have to take some donation for running the colleges but the amount should not be so high and a limit need to be fixed.
