I personally would prefer not doing it in India because i'm very against the Indian education system.

anyone agreeing with me please help me decide where to do it from if not India.

for masters in India we do have a very strict filteration process and its tough here as you know about the MBA and Mtech. In India we do have limited seats and again those have reservations, so for the normal people to get in there is a big task and this task has very descent outcomes you get to be related with the heritage institutes here which promise a career boost. In abroad what happens is they dont have that strict filteration process and the exams are relatively easy out there we do have open education scenario that is of more benefit and once you come back to India you get to see that on your career. So both are great at their own way and yes I prefer India for masters as the level of knowledge and interaction you get builds your career and your personality in a better way.

India has very few institutes that provide quality education for masters program.. There are more people wanting to do masters than there are vacancies.. It is difficult for people to get admission in these institutes and there is no use of doing masters in institutes that dont provide quality education.. There are many opportunities for masters abroad... So i would prefer masters in abroad

Doing masters in abroad you will have an international experience, you will get to know people from different culture. With international experience on the CV, you can pitch yourself better in the job market, and may get a lead over the other candidates applying for the same job. Let’s face it. It is an eye catcher on your resume and can fetch you higher pay package as well.

Doing it abroad is obviously better but at the end what matters is if you can get that invested money back by getting a good job. so make sure you don't invest more than you can get it back.

In India when you go for the Masters the source of income that you have is The stipend and the money from your parents. You dont need to worry about the money you can completely focus on your studies while in abroad you need to get a temp job to survive the expenses hence you cannot completely focus on your studies. Hence Its India for masters!

Well, it depends on what masters your going for.

Masters in technology like an MS is better off done in India.

But a Masters in management like an MBA is better off done Abroad.

doing masters in abroad would make you a more independent person.. you would learn how to adapt to new culture, environment and how to face new challenges... when you are in some other country, you might face situations which would be to easy to solve if you were in India, this would improve your independence...

Indian colleges look just for marks but colleges in Europe, Canada, US and many other countries pay more attention on extra curriculum as a part of their admission process as well as their curriculum. It just gets better for most of us to get in such colleges.

I've always lived with my parents and desperate to try the hostel or a life away from home and parents. I would prefer getting a student loan and doing it abroad. It would be an amazing experience. I would not only learn my subjects but also learn to survive on my own.

But you have to also think if doing it here in India will make a difference? Will it be as valued? And also keep in mind that the competition here will be immense.

According to me, what matters is the education. It will be a waste if you go abroad and get admission in any other Institute then your 2 years will be wasted and your money aswell


If you choose to stay here and get admission in any colleges then it will be the same case just you would spend less money!

Indian universities do not allow changing branches once the course has began, but most of the universities abroad has this facility. It makes it easier for students to change their streams mid course.

In India we lack practical knowledge. We are taught the theory part of the subjects but never got the opportunity to know how exactly things work which is the most important requirement of companies. In most of the colleges in abroad they have a co-op sem where they can apply their theoritical knowledge.

If you're not a bookworm and have good experience with extra curriculum it would be easier to get in a good university abroad. But totally depends on you.

In India you know as what actually colleges are but that won't happen in Abroad as there are only a bunch of prestigious colleges and the remaining colleges are just for the sake.  So my suggestion would be that either you get into one of the renowned colleges in India or if planning for abroad verify the status of the college you get into.

All the best @Hannah

I will justify both

Master's in India
1. Cost incurred is less

2. You get to be in your country

3. Get a good quality knowledge from great teachers

4. Get a chance to work for your countries economy.

5. You get to meet your parents very often

Mater's in Abroad

1. Get to learn a different culture

2. Cost incurred is more

3. You get a different life style

4. You get advancement in tech

5. Get to learn from teachers of different region

6. Get to explore different human behaviour.

Depends on the course.

If its masters in the field of computers, California is the best.

Just make sure you do it from the best university even if that means taking a break or year off.
