  • You can try to get admission in many universities in outside countries but I am afraid there is no guarantee of the scholarship there. However many of these universities have sufficient allocations for scholarship and based on the merit and other considerations some scholarships are given to the international needy students. That aspect has to be found out in details from the detailed prospectus of the university.

    Now for doing Post graduation in Agricultural Economics there are many foreign universities where this course is running and some of them which have a potential also for scholarships are shortlisted here. Please note that for applying in a particular university you have to go to its site and apply as per the procedure where generally an elaborate form is to be filled up and scanned copy of all the relevant documents right from passport to highest qualification obtained are to be sent to them as digital attachment to the online application form. It is also to be noted that one has to qualify in the English language proficiency test like IELTS or TOEFL. Different universities have different admissible scores required in the English proficiency test and that has to be taken care while applying there. A good score in English language proficiency test would always be helpful in getting admission.
