Having their children learn from diverse cultures in the company of students from across the globe under the supervision of the brilliant minds that are shaping the next generation’s Albert Einsteins, Neil Armstrongs, and Christopher Nolans is most urban Indian parents’ dream. But how many of them are able to give their children such a dream education?
Statistically speaking, out of a population of 1.3 billion people, about 5.53 lakh young Indians are currently pursuing education across 86 different countries, as stated in a report by factly.in. This is a measly 0.004% of the population that’s currently pursuing foreign education.
Quality education is important. While most Indian universities focus on tradition-bound educational programmes – Medicine, Engineering, and Accountancy – Indian parents have realized that if they were aiming for something great and unique for their children, education in foreign universities is what they are looking for. But how to go about saving enough money for it?
The cost of education abroad is constantly increasing, just like in India. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if we tell you that education in a decent university in the US comes at a cost of USD 30,000 + collateral expenses (close to INR 21 lakhs), and this is the bare minimum. Of course, the cost will be lower in other countries, but it is still too high according to Indian standards. Does this mean you should just let go of your child’s foreign education dream?
While you may want to depend on scholarship programmes, the competition out there is extremely tough to get through, and as parents, you certainly don’t want to compromise on your child’s dreams.
Thankfully, there are a number of child plans that will help you plan your child’s foreign education dream effectively and meticulously.
A child plan is basically an investment plan in which you invest small sums regularly to eventually help it grow into a huge corpus that could assist you in funding your child’s education when the time comes.
But again, there are way too many options to zero in on the best possible plan without the aid of an expert. At OneInsure, we have a dedicated team of subject matter experts who have helped thousands of families select child plans that best meet their requirements. With their help, we have prepared a list of top four child plans available in India currently.
