Impact on Study Abroad Programs
No face-to-face teaching or exams
Though a lot of Indian students get scholarships to study abroad every year, this year is turning out to be a bit different. To reduce the spread of coronavirus, ample universities have suspended any on-campus activities like lectures.
Restrictions on immigration
Now, it is restricted to study in Europe rather than visit the place from another country. Plenty of countries are already restricting entry at their borders, and only nationals or permanent residents are permitted unless there are important reasons. How, this will affect foreign students in autumn 2020 is still unclear, but you should follow developments closely so you can plan.
