It is known to everyone that a large number of Indian students go abroad for their higher education. As per the data from the RBI it is found that every year the number of students going abroad to study is increasing at a rapid pace and they are applying for study abroad loans. One of the major indications is the queries related to foreign education loans. As per data after covid-19 there is a surge seen in the queries related to the foreign education loans. Abroad universities are slowly opening up and the admission phase has begun to take place. Students from India are trying to get into foreign universities as quickly as possible before any other outbreak of pandemic takes place.
Travel restrictions across the world are easing up slowly. Easing up global travel restrictions has created a perfect situation for international students to study abroad. This has majorly increased the queries for the study abroad loan. It can be seen that after the pandemic more numbers of students are willing to travel abroad for their education. Major contribution to this number can be the declaration of the Canadian Government of accepting more than 1 million immigrants in their country.
One of the largest banks of India HDFC has also seen the rise in queries for overseas education loans. HDFC Credila MD & CEO Arijit Sanyal, said to TOI that there is a 209% growth in overseas education loan applications in Q1FY22 over the first quarter of the previous year.
