Education Consultant in India Explains COVID-19 and its Impact on Education Abroad

Cinque Terre

COVID-19 is a virus outbreak that has affected the world. It is mainly transmitted through the droplets of an infected person’s cough, sneezes, or exhales. There is yet to find a suitable vaccination and accurate cure for the virus outbreak. The rate of infected people was rising rapidly, hence, social distancing was the only way to stop the infected people’s rate from rising. The current scenario is such that all of us are stuck at home thinking how the COVID-19 situation has impacted different phases of life. Study abroad aspirants are the ones struck by the situation the most. It’s time for you to do some research and not believe everything you hear about the impact COVID-19 will have on overseas education.  Here are some of the myths we have busted related to abroad education amidst the Corona Virus Outbreak

  • International Universities have shut down admissions completely – Universities abroad are willing to guide their new international students about the new changes being made to ensure that the overseas students can continue to plan their master’s and graduation with an university abroad. Universities have introduced some relaxations, first year students can pay their tuition fee in installments based on merit.

In Canada, International students’ travel restrictions have been waived if their student permit is valid. Some necessary health checkups are inevitable in all walks of life during this difficult health crisis.

  • Students who have received Admission letters wouldn’t attend classes – This is a myth, since provision has been made by various countries and universities to conduct admissions online, either fully or partially. The start of fall 2020 will witness the admission of international degree programs in US, Europe, Germany and many other countries. This helps students initiate their specific course despite all the travel restrictions. The students might be presented with an option to continue their studies online or opt for a partially online and partially offline course.
  • No work permit for students taking online classes – PGWP (Post-Graduation Work Permit) program isn’t going to be affected by the mode of study of any student. Work permit will be approved for students who have their study permit issued to them for programmes commencing in fall or autumn of 2020.
  • Fellowship denied to students who are on financial aid – Several fellowship opportunities have currently been put on hold amidst the lockdown situation, but constant efforts are being made by governments to ensure the situation gets better. In the UK, Telephonic and online interviews are being considered for the students whose applications are still in process.

It is not an ideal situation or time to travel abroad. The fear of stepping out amidst this lockdown situation has monopolised our minds, but all this is temporary. The tide will settle and the sun will rise again. It is just a mere jolt and not the end of the world.
