Abstract


Women empowerment can be possible only through educating women. A country like India needs such an empowerment leading to the economic development of the society. Many people in India especially from rural areas still believe that marriage is important than educating women. Currently, the trend is changing. The rate of women students in schools and colleges has tremendously increased. Even the parents of rural areas are ready to send their girl children to schools. It shows the change in the mindset of the people and the society. Pinnacle to this change is that many women students are going abroad to pursue their higher studies. Countries like Canada, UK, USA, New Zealand, etc. are offering attractive scholarships for students. This has increased the ratio of women students obtaining their Master’s degree from foreign countries.This study mainly aims to identify the increasing trend of pursuing higher education abroad by women students.
