How to guide parents and students to study abroad?It has been reported in some social media that the various Universities that scream "Study in the UK," or "Study in Canada" and so on, are substandard Universities. They are often here in right to lure the gullible students or parents or both and through some non-value-adding education on foreign soil.
It is high time the Government of India and the State Governments check on the academic credentials of foreign Universities. It is not wise to put a blanket ban on admissions. This will defeat the purpose and lead to corruption. What needs to be done is to have a big check on the Universities and inform students even when they study in the second year of their undergraduate course, about the value of the different courses and the different Universities.
For, at the end of the study, if the student does not get placed or learns that the process of education has not led him anywhere, the problem becomes acute. How to handle this situation requires deep thought and action.
