Why should I study abroad?

It is very important to figure out why you should choose to study abroad rather than your home country. Stop following the crowd and make your own list of reasons how an overseas education would be better for you and if you find some concrete reasons, move to the next question.

Which country should I choose?

As we all know that the world isn't a small place and each and every country is diverse in its own way, so it's really important for you to choose the right destination for you as per your requirements. Don't just follow the lead and stick to Canada or Australia only, explore other countries such as USA, France, UK, Ireland, Singapore, Dubai and many more. You must also consider various other factors like economical position, population, quality of education, employment opportunities, living expenses and most importantly, the climatic conditions of the host country. Take all these factors under consideration and choose as per you suitability.

Which course would be suitable for me?

After deciding upon your host country, another significant decision is to choose the right course that suits your requirement as well as interest. Go, hit the internet and carefully study the curriculum of various programs offered by different universities. You can also take up an Academic Pathway Planning (APP) test to help you choose the best option as per your aptitude and interest.

How would I manage the finances?

Arranging the finances is another important aspect that you must consider while planning your overseas education. Not just the tuition fee, but the living cost as well. Some universities also offer scholarships to international students based on their academic profile, which can be an added advantage for you. Almost all the countries offer the benefit of working for part-time while pursuing your studies, but it is really important for you to arrange your finances way in advance. You can also consider applying for an education loan.

How an overseas degree would be beneficial for me in the future?

A foreign degree is globally acknowledged, which gives you recognition among the ordinary crowd and gives you an edge over other candidates while seeking employment opportunities. Overseas education can add weightage to your resume and transform you into an efficient professional, thus helping you build up a lucrative career in the near future.

Can I manage to stay alone, far away from my family in the host country?

It might sound vague, but yes it is another important aspect for you to consider if you are planning to move to a foreign land for your higher studies. Staying far away from your near and dear ones can sometimes make you feel homesick, so you must be mentally prepares for what's going to come your way. But this decision does bring along an important aspect, i.e. your development as an individual. Spending the tenure of the course in a foreign land gives you numerous opportunities to interact with people hailing from different corners of the world, which broadens your mindset, makes you adaptive and polishes you into a confident, independent and responsible individual.

What should I do after completing my overseas education?

It has been well said that 'a stitch in time saves nine' so it is also beneficial to plot your plan of action way in advance. Consider your future goals and decide what you should do after completing your degree from a foreign institution. Most of the countries offer a stay back option by providing you a work visa to explore your respective field after completing your studies. Make the most of this opportunity and grab on-hand experience in the global market. Once you are well versed with the international standards, it opens the gateway for you to build up your professional career in any part of the world.
