Connecting Students With Universities Amidst COVID - 19 Pandemic
COVID-19 is such an unpredictable guest that we haven't wished for. This unprecedented pandemic has wreaked havoc in the entire world with its quick spreading infection. The progress around the world has been on a halt to minimise the outbreak. All the economical activities have been put on hold. Most of the countries around the world are under the lockdown which has caused chaos in people. Most of the organisation has been shut but one of the most impacts is on the migrant students who travel to other countries for a better future.
To reduce the pandemic impact on the student and resume all the process again, the university is working hard. Through the different digital mediums, they are connecting the students. As an education consultancy, we are creating a bond between students & university to transmit the update efficiently through webinars, conferences, live sessions. To give a detailed insight about this virtual connectivity our Business Director Mr. Bhargav Modi prepared this amazing blog for our students which talks about Hybrid study to E-Counselling.
Impact of Covid-19 on students globally
As the countries around the world are putting themselves in self-isolation, students are not in a condition to travel for their study. The pressure on the foreign education aspirants, most, who have planned for it but now struggling with this entire process of new intakes, IELTS, safety issues and many more. As the disease is not over yet, the students are fearing to go out of the country. They are looking for such kinds of alternative solutions which do not impact on their decisions of study abroad.
Students' trust in European universities
Although the disease is showing its ugly face more and more yet the determination of students for their study abroad is not going to fade out. And the proof is the article by India Today which says that even in the COVID-19 lockdown, 91% of Indian students want to continue studying abroad. And the UK, France and Germany are the top choices among the students.
The article further mentions that 76% students are ready to start their study abroad planning within the next 6-10 months (upcoming September or January intakers) and 16% students waiting till summer to make their decision due to the Covid-19 outbreak. It shows their trust in European education and their universities. It is not lesser than the good news in this challenging environment.
Transmitting information from the university to students
Pandemic certainly has disturbed the predetermined structure of all the academic activities like intake, admission, visa procedure, course structure and many academic policies. So resuming the order to its normal order, universities are coming with new rules, changes and some big announcements. Now, as an experienced organization, we are disappearing the gap between student and university by giving the latest update to our students. Through our virtual conference and webinar we are spreading awareness about new universities, courses. changes among students.
Connecting through webinars & online conferences
Edugo Abroad appreciates such kind of determination. It is an inspiring moment for foreign education consultancy like us. It drives us to serve them better. To be part of this collective effort we decided to reach the students through webinar & online conferences by deviating from the tradition method. Through this, our expert counsellor can counsel the students directly from home.
Guidance from expert counsellors
Our virtual webinar is held by expert designations like university representatives, university officials, university Dean, or so many authorities on behalf of the university administration who are guiding the students in such a challenging situation. They are putting the curtain up from the educational opportunities and job scopes in European countries.
Benefits through this virtual connectivity
We are connecting to the students through webinars, virtual events, audio shows, live sessions and many more. Now a student can get all the latest updates regarding the admission process, upcoming intakes, procedure change, etc.. Due to COVID-19, the students are facing lots of confusion, feeling lack of awareness. To mitigate such a situation we are regularly organising live sessions which portray the clear pictures in the student's mind regarding study in Europe.
Hybrid study: A new way of learning
This collective effort from the universities has come with the alternative solution which is Hybrid Learning. It is a new normal that universities and students across the world are adopting. In the education world, this creative idea has eased the path for a student who got stuck because of the pandemic. Now a student can stay at his home and continue his online study for the initial months and save the living expenses. This time period will allow them to become familiar with the new culture.
The best part
Nobody can deny this truth that we all are facing a difficult time. But there is always a ray of light on the end of the dark tunnel. The best thing we can do is; corporate with everyone through technology and spread love & peace. Team Edugo Abroad is obedient to serve our students, no matter what the situation. It's our duty to give the best service to our students.
