Visual Communication Courses Abroad

It’s been a visual media boom for the past 5 years in India and now it has gone global! There is a 10% to 15% increase in the number of students going to the US, UK and Australia to pursue higher studies in visual media.

Courses like film making, animation, graphics, visual communication, journalism and mass media have become the most favorite courses among Indian students who want to go to the UK, US, Australia and Canada.

Overseas education experts say that most Indian students want to go abroad to study visual media mainly due to the cutting-edge technology and global recognition of the foreign universities.

Among other countries, students prefer Canada and Australia to complete diploma-level courses, mainly due to the low tuition and living expenses.

Many students from Chennai who are pursuing their undergraduate/bachelors degree in visual media prefer foreign universities to expand their skill sets and learning.

Although some visual communication courses in foreign universities are expensive when compared with Indian universities, some students say that it is worth the time and money. For instance, if a visual communication course in India costs 2.5 to 3 lakhs, it costs around 10 lakhs in foreign universities. Despite this costly affair, students feel that the return on investment (job opportunity) is better abroad than in India.
