Most students in India preferred to pursue higher education in the big cities of the country till a few years ago. However, in the recent past, the number of youngsters travelling abroad for the purpose has witnessed a steady increase.

The favourite destinations of Indian youth, including those from Kerala, for studies and exploring employment opportunities are the UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, the USA and Russia. Among these countries, the UK has an edge with world-class universities, diversity of students from countries around the globe, a certain job after studies and opportunities for part-time employment.
