US Becomes Favorite Destination For Indian Students
US President Barack Obama announced immigration reforms last week and raised hope for millions of illegal immigrants and international students living in the US. If the Congress votes in its favor and the reforms come into force, many Indian families and students would also benefit from the same.
Obama in his speech said “Are we a nation that educates the world’s best and brightest in our universities, only to send them home to create businesses in countries that compete against us? Or are we a nation that encourages them to stay and create jobs here, create businesses here, create industries right here in America?”
Students from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) background can find jobs, get work permits, and even H1B, all easier than what it is today. Thus, it’s very much predictable that demand for student visas will surge and US will become the top education destination for Indian students all over again.
