Study Abroad: What are the current trends in regard to student visas in popular study destinations?
Despite the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there will still be a demand from students who want to study abroad for a diverse range of reasons.

Countries like the UK, Canada, USA and Australia are popular destinations among study abroad aspirants. It seems that obtaining a student visa for the UK is growing simpler. Indians’ approvals for UK student visas increased by 215% starting in 2019, according to immigration data from the UK government (for the fiscal year ending June 2022). Talking about Canada, its student visa success rate has finally improved after beginning Covid-19 in 2019 with a rejection rate of roughly 35% and down to 60% in 2022. The number of student visas issued to applicants with a three-year gap has increased in recent weeks. 

The second-largest international student population in Australia is made up of students from India. A student visa for Australia was granted to around 28,000 Indian students in the first 10 months of 2021–2022. The good news is that the full Australian student visa application procedure is now done online thanks to the revised Simplified Student Immigration Framework (SSVF) Guidelines.

Let’s talk about the next destination, that is the USA. Chinese students received substantially fewer F1 visas than Indian students between January and July 2022, according to data from the US State Department: 46,145. As of 2022, the United States has granted 82,000 visas to Indian students, breaking the previous record, proving that it is still one of the most well-known countries for study abroad. 

The enrollment of study abroad aspirants is a subject that is exceptionally complex, expensive, and competitive and is becoming more and more crucial to the financial stability of many institutions. The likelihood that students will be granted a student visa will rise with a methodical, considerate, and knowledgeable approach.
