But with all that choice at your disposal it is important to still be pragmatic about your course selection. At the undergraduate level it is possible to study in a university which offers a sandwich or a co-op programme. The sandwich course offers you an opportunity to work in the industry for 6 months to a year thereby giving you an opportunity to utilize your theoretical knowledge in an industrial or commercial setting. You can integrate an industrial placement with a large range of subjects like Engineering, Business, Psychology, Law, etc. Plus there are a range of courses that are available overseas which are still not available in India, for example, environment studies, development studies, animal behaviour, renewable energy, etc.
New age courses
You should consider choosing a course that is in tune with your long-term career goals. Some courses, even though still not available in India, have tremendous career prospects. E.g., internet security, though not available in India as a degree, can be a useful specialization.
