Corona and COVID-19 have become the common words used in the most concerned way by every individual across the world. But that is not the case in the youngsters and study abroad aspirants of South Asia. Thanks to the ultimate safety measures being taken by the governments and educational institutions globally. 


Around 91% of South East Asian students who had planned to study abroad, continue to do so as per the survey of an Edu-tech platform.

Amidst the current circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic, the rapid adaptive measures taken by universities across the globe deserve a lot of appreciation. Never in the history the academic institutions, companies and nonprofit organizations have come together to achieve a bigger vision of aiding and serving the student population as obsessively as today. This goes on to also show that educational institutions and study abroad oriented consultancies, various country governments with sound ground rules and sustainable tech-moats will lead the pack in the new normal.
