Students heading abroad for higher studies-Suggestive enough for a change in the system
Heading abroad for higher studies is indeed a matter of quality education, better placements and opportunities to excel, as per a generalized view. The counter idea comes up with the name of top universities in India where even foreign students come to avail higher education degrees including Ph.D. Then what basic cause makes students go abroad and not choose any of the Indian universities for the same purposes? Well, to the question the first thing comes up as Infrastructure. Infrastructure not only means the material but the mind as well, not only the system but the people in the system.

The failure in system directly implies to the failure of the people's capabilities and will. Take an Example of VYAPM Scam- PMT paper leak case as well as AIPMT paper leak case. A student aspiring to become a doctor would certainly have lagged behind due to the failure or zero authenticity of the functionality and not due to lack of preparation or luck in most cases.

So, the trust deficit is another thing interlinked with the system failure that directly suggests the low management or availability of the infrastructures. Next thing that comes under infrastructure is availability of seats in a particular institution, that again suggest to the Donation culture especially in medical colleges. A person capable of giving donation can definitely avail a seat but the value of abilities and merit falls.

Next comes the ratings given to the Indian degrees in India and abroad- this implies to mindset of a person that catches the " FOREIGN RETURN" word as a preferred eligibility for a certain job. This in one way degrades the acceptability of Indian Degrees for Placements.

Lets us take a look at Placement opportunities and income. Engineer from a local college will seldom be preferred over an IITan while an IITan will seldom prefer a job in India! this is a chain of degrading acceptability of Indian degree by one and Indian job opportunity by the other for low income.

Now comes the Fake education certificates. All the metro cities especially Delhi NCR are full of such centers that guarantee a fake degree that is completely Original! again it suggests of System-people that have their ties with these centers. MBA for 40000rs, MCA for 35000, one can get Ph.D in one or two lacks and need not make a thesis. Alarming? no alluring, for the people who seek shortcuts! now on the contrary to all this even if a foreign degree is fake it will be called a foreign degree only and would hold equally higher acceptability in placements and opportunities in terms of education value.

Solution to this lies within the change in education system that inculcates research aptitude, implementation of strict laws against fake degree holders and promotion to Indian universities and institutions to be valued that links to the mindset.
