Introduction and inception of dual study.
Dual study is an important aspect of consideration when one thinks about Overseas education.

Students can choose to work on campus or off campus as per their needs, availability and choice of jobs.
The concept of dual studies exists greatly in most of the western and European countries. It is largely spreading in Asian countries such as China, India and so on though it may not be as well developed as the western countries.
