BrainGain Magazine aims to be the definitive source of information for anyone interested in exploring and learning about educational opportunities outside South Asia, and provides information on student experiences and studying in universities around the world. The interactive online medium provides students access to helpful and practical details on learning about their chosen field of study, campus life, admission process, careers services, financial aid and visa regulations. Besides regular streams such as engineering, MBA and medicine, BrainGain Magazine will also cover specialized courses such as oceanography, astrophysics, script writing and film making, to name a few.
