Even the most brilliant of students feel a bit uncomfortable talking about pursuing their further studies abroad. No, they’re not worried about competing with other international students or settling down in a new country. They’re worried about the financial burden they put on themselves as well as their parents. Sure, there are scholarships to help these talented students but studies show that only 19% of students are able to qualify for receiving scholarships. The remaining 81% have to bootstrap their further education by way of personal savings or loans. It is imperative for these students to craft a meticulous budget before taking the plunge of pursuing their further studies.
