Earlier, after completing 12th standard, the student used to complete their undergraduate program from India itself and then work for some time in order to gain experience and then, they’d go abroad and do their post-graduation. But now, the trend has changed. It is preferred that the student goes abroad right after completing 12th and completes their higher studies in abroad.
This has many reasons; doing undergraduate program from abroad builds a strong base for post-graduation. It allows the student to get exposure as well as become independent. Also, many countries provide different opportunities and scholarships to undergraduates like in Singapore; universities offer academic scholarships to meritorious students.
