India now has the largest higher education systems in the world, after China and the USA. As a result, there are thousands of colleges and universities in India coming up to fulfil the need for quality education for all. However, the uncertain times during the ongoing pandemic has had its impact on all sectors of the society, education being the one which has taken a major hit has put aspirants who want to pursue their higher education in a renowned university in a constant state of major confusion and dilemma. While academic experts are pushing for online models of education – be it classroom teaching or tutorials, we are yet to see how effectively a nation that primarily relies on an offline mode of teaching can seamlessly transgress to an online medium of teaching and education. Higher Education Institutions have responded emphatically and figured out how to guarantee the congruence of instructing learning, exploration, and administration to the general public with certain devices and methods during the pandemic. 

With students wanting to pursue their higher education in various fields of engineering, medicine, etc , selecting the right universities can be a very challenging task especially in the present situations. There are chances that the 2021 placement season may witness a dip as the World Economy is going through a massive decline. With more and more companies requesting an ‘outplacement’, wherein support service is provided by some organizations to help former employees transition to new jobs or are deferring their joining dates, it will not be aggressive to assume that globally, we are heading towards a major recession in 2021. Hence It is important for students to study through the pros and cons of universities, before taking a blind leap of faith into unknown territory. Various factors like specializations, curriculum, and affiliations of the University, campus rating, placement and internship opportunities, research opportunities need to be evaluated before picking a University for their further studies.
