Here are a few easy tips to go about executing your study abroad plans:

Extensive Research:

Deciding to study abroad is a big step in life. Today with overseas education blooming all over, majority of countries and their universities are successfully offering a wide plethora of courses. In such a scenario, choosing the right country and university becomes crucial, which is why a detailed research is a must. In this stage, students must widen their horizons and look at all available options. Only after studying all these options should one make an informed decision.

Apply To The Universities:

After shortlisting the universities, students can start with their application process keeping in mind the dates of application and submission of the respective universities. The students can apply directly to the universities by visiting their website. Students are only expected to follow all the instructions as given by the university in order to proceed

Take The Required Proficiency Tests:

For studying a particular program, universities require you to pass a few tests in order for you to be eligible to apply for the program. Universities especially ask you to take English proficiency test that ensure your English speaking, reading and listening ability. The three major English Proficiency Tests are IELLTS, TOFLE, and PTE. Students are expected to take any one test out of the three which depends from university to university. Other tests are also required to be taken such as the GRE, GMAT, SAT, etc which are required by only some programs.

Ensure You Have A Well Drafted and Impactful CV:

Your CV is a textual image of your educational qualification, work experiences and skills. Make sure it is well structured, concise, precise, and free of grammatical errors. Your CV must speak high of you. Make sure that your CV adds weightage to your application.

Draft Your Own SOP (Statement Of Purpose) and Personal Statement:

This is one of the most important document every university demands as this is the only way the university gets a chance to know you. An SOP/Personal Statement is an essay which students are expected to draft. It is through this essay that students narrate their story and show themselves to the admission committee. While an SOP’s major focus is on education, career and future goals, a Personal Statement shows your personal side, along with your educational and professional background. Make sure that your essays talk with the admission committee. Your essays must have an impact.

Arrange And Sort Out All Your Documents Carefully:

Your documents are a very important component for getting admission abroad. Documents like your marksheets, identity proof, passport, financial statements, etc. need to be arranged and kept ready whenever required. Thus make sure all your documents are in place.

Visa Application:

Unless and until you don’t get a visa, you won’t be allowed to fly to the country of your dream. Proceed to this step cautiously. Fill in your visa application form with accurate details. Prepare for the interview by keeping your answers to the possible questions that can be asked, ready. Be confident enough in stating your reasons to study in a particular country and also your future goals. Your Statement of Intent should also strongly speak about the same.

Once a student gets his/her visa, he/she can prep to take off. Before that, doing a little background study of the country/city/town, common places to visit, stores to buy specific things from, culture, food, etc.
