The advent of the Covid -19 pandemic put many student's dreams to study abroad on hold. As governments tightened travel restrictions, students were forced to reassess their decision to seek higher education from overseas. Despite the risks, more than 91% of Indian students showed a strong desire to study abroad as soon as they were permitted to do so. The only remaining questions were when the travel ban will be lifted and which study place should they consider given the current economic/political climate.
