upGrad's Study Abroad Set to Become the Largest Player in the Going-Abroad Space in South Asia; Sets Revenue Target of $130Mn for 2023 – Yahoo Finance

ATLANTA, March 28, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–upGrad Abroad, the ‘Study Abroad’ vertical of Asia’s leading higher EdTech company upGrad, launched a high decibel campaign last week with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, announcing the future for undergraduates and postgraduates studying abroad with the right blend of online learning for the first year, followed by the on-campus thereafter. Just in the last 8 months, upGrad Abroad has enrolled 1,500 learners and onboarded 18 partner universities.
The Study Abroad vertical has set a target to become the largest player in the segment by 2023 — to enroll over 25,000 learners and cross an annual revenue run rate of $130Mn by then. India as a market for students going abroad to study is in the top 2 countries in the world and that number has soared from 440,000 in 2016 to 770,000 in 2019 and will cross 1.8Mn students annually by 2024. The core geographies from which upGrad learners can choose include the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, and Germany.
Commenting on the same, Ankur Dhawan, President – upGrad Abroad said, "The only way to democratize transnational education is by offering learners the chance to study from any global university of their choice and yet make it much more affordable and accessible than it's ever been before. With upGrad’s ability to offer online to start with and then move to on-campus learning, we are uniquely placed to open up this market exponentially."
"The world has changed a lot in the last half-decade and most Indians want to be in their own country or come back to their own country to work and build their future. India is a prime example as it is a land of myriad opportunities as it’s slated to be the 3rd largest economy in the world. The market for traveling overseas to pursue higher education and specialization, along with global exposure before settling, is where we believe upGrad has created the right blend of an offering with the right partnerships, to change the lives of many learners with unbridled ambition," added Mayank Kumar, MD & Co-Founder, upGrad.

For 10-year fixed rate loans, the average student loan refinancing rate ticked up slightly from a week prior to 4.16%, but rates on 5-year variable-rate loans fell slightly to 3.52%, according to the latest rates from Credible for the week ending March 28th. Refinancing a student loan is a way for borrowers to save money by essentially taking out a new loan to pay off their existing loan with a lower interest rate or more appealing terms. Indeed, just because you may be able to get a lower interest rate doesn’t mean you should forge ahead with a refinance, especially if you plan to refinance a federal loan into a private loan.
