UAE Emerges as Top Study Destination for Indian Students: Report

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) currently hosts the highest number of Indian students, with Canada in the second spot, according to a TOI report.

Consultant Maria Mathai, in the report, highlighted two types of international students in the UAE, which include those who move away from their family and home to join campus and those who join a campus as their parents work in the UAE or Saudi Arabia.

She explained that parents already working in these countries have motivated international students including from India to pursue higher education there.

India, today, is the top country of origin for international students studying in Canada.

An education counsellor added that flexible immigration policies in countries like the UAE, Canada and Australia have played an important role in attracting international students from across the globe.
