One time money through education

It was quite interesting for me the information on one time money that people earn through education. Education is a business now. I had never come across a situation in my home country. There might have some as what I experienced here in London. But still I can say that I did not get any experience with the matter which I explained here.

Overseas education was very popular in India,one of the most  developing countries. People found more opportunities and better level of education in abroad than in India. Many found their step in stones there. The fascinating things in overseas education was part time work, opportunities after the education , work visa, and in some cases sponsorship visa which will lead to a permanent residency after a particular period of time.

It’s a history now. Overseas education is less in demand compared to Indian education. More opportunities, good remuneration, work satisfaction and  chances of getting more knowledge which will lead to higher level opportunities are the main attractive things about Indian education now. So it is worth to think about the money spending for overseas education instead of a deep rooted educational profile.

There are some institutions and individual people who are playing with the field of education. Education is just like a gambling for them. Once they get the money from the student they will not have much responsibility on them regarding the progress of education or any other study related things. Even if the student is not attending the classes, they will not care for it. If the student needs any help ; Yes. The education providers are ready to provide that on the basis of a fixed amount. That means money is the main criteria in all these.

So people who are interested in overseas education must look for certain things

  • Education provider that they have selected should possess a good review and credibility
  • Pass rate of the uni/college/ any institution
  • Review of previous students who had been studied over there . Make sure that these students are not the one who introduced by the uni/ college/ education provider
  • A good understanding of examination system and time frame of getting results
  • Chances of merging part time jobs ( if they are interested to do so)

In my personal opinion, overseas education is less in demand now regardless the opportunities.

Education in UK ( International )

In old days it was a big surprise if a person says her son /daughter is in UK for education. But nowadays it is a common thing. After the basic education lot of students fly to UK for higher education as if it is not a big deal. There are different reasons for this. Some people give a big value for the higher education in UK and exposure that they are going get from here. But some are here for the job opportunity and to migrate for a good future here with a stay back. But there is another group, just for a fun they come here stay for 1 year and go back. They just want to enjoy the life style of UK and plan to go back after the expiry of visa. Also there is a bunch of people who need only the certificate from UK. It is for their job hike in their current working organization or offer from new organizations. They will get these offers only on the basis of certificate. This doesn’t mean that they need to know the basis things in their study stream.

UK government has given the golden opportunity for the international students to build their future in UK. They have introduced 2 years stay back in the name of Post Study Work Visa (PSW). This will help students after finishing their studies to grab a job from here itself. The main aim of PSW was to hold the graduates in UK itself so that the students who graduated from here can give and take the benefits to UK government.

But people misapplied the whole system. Some people are still here in student visa for 6- 8 years and continually working. They used to change the course and college to get the visa. If we’re examine their progress of education, most of them are not in a progressive stage but just changing course and college to get the visa and they can work here for a long time. But with these types of students there are good students too. They have progress in their education, and they continue in student visa with completing the course and then with the higher level.

Do you believe if I say that we will get certificates of different universities in UK which cost £1500- £6000? Yes!!! That is a truth. Thus it came to a situation which gives less importance to the valuable knowledge which we develop from education but the matter of only certificate.

I believe that these are the reasons which forced  UKBA to rethink about international students and their visa status.
