Indians rank high on positivity about finances
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: The survey's worldwide results show that Indian students agree with their peers across all 21 countries when it comes to how higher education should embrace online learning.
As many as eight in 10 or 80 per cent of Indian undergraduate students feel hopeful about their finances in the future, the second highest of 21 countries surveyed for a new "Global Student Survey" released on Friday, with only China and Kenya jointly ahead at 84 per cent.
The findings, published by Chegg.org – the non-profit arm of education technology company Chegg, also reveal that after the COVID-19 pandemic, 54 per cent of Indian students would like their university course to incorporate more online learning, the fourth highest of any other country surveyed – equal to Canada (54 per cent) and behind Saudi Arabia (78 per cent), China (77 per cent) and South Korea and Australia (both 57 per cent).
The survey's worldwide results show that Indian students agree with their peers across all 21 countries when it comes to how higher education should embrace online learning. Around two-thirds (65 per cent) of students across the surveyed countries say they would rather want their university offered the choice of more online learning if it meant paying lower tuition fees.
