What is Abroad study ? How to plan for Higher Study !
Study abroad is the term given to a program, usually run through a university, which allows a student to live in a foreign country and attend a foreign university. The typical program one thinks of allows a student to spend a semester studying abroad, but some programs run for multiple semesters or up to a year.
As a non-profit organization, our first job is to break down barriers to make the life-changing experience of study abroad accessible and affordable for everyone. We directly enroll you at our member universities because we value the personal transformation that comes from cultural immersion.
The most popular and important entrance exam to study abroad is GRE, GMAT, IELTS, TOEFL, SAT, and ACT. Excellent performance in these international competitive exams can also get students financial aid in the form of scholarships.
- Find your areas of interest(courses/degrees/major).
- Check admission requirements for a country. Universities in a given country have similar basic requirements (like GPA, exams like GRE/GMAT/SAT/ACT, English Proficiency, etc. ).
- Make sure your current qualification meet those standards.
- Check for dates and deadlines (colleges might stop taking applications a year before the start date of your course!).
- Make sure you have enough funds to cover your education (education expense varies a lot). Do not assume to get financial support, you need to have a plan to fund your education and living expenses.
- The last and most important thing is getting student visa! You should have a backup plan (what if a student visa is rejected?). The whole process of studying abroad might take a year (prep for the exam, take the exam, wait for results and apply for colleges, student visa, etc.).
- The whole process might take an year, if you are planning to study abroad plan accordingly. You also need to think what’s next after studies do you want to come back or stay. Rules for working after completion of your education vary with country.
