Plans for study abroad put on hold

India Education News    

The rupee devaluation has hit the foreign education plans for many Indian students. While students already pursuing higher education at a foreign university have no choice but to bear the brunt, those who have plans are putting them on hold. Besides, those looking for jobs abroad too are finding it tough to sail through. An educational consultant says, “Due to rupee depreciation, students are reconsidering their decision to head for foreign destinations, especially US, to study as both tuition fees and cost of living there will rise. ”
