Edwise International – Study Abroad Consultants: Study abroad for Indian students: an all-inclusive step by step guide.

Studying abroad is the new norm in education. Students
from all over the world flock to popular study destinations to bolster their
profiles and qualifications by studying at well-ranked universities abroad. At
every step of education abroad, students are empowered to emerge as top
players in their fields of interest. Students that study abroad are
statistically more likely to secure employment as compared to their domestic
counterparts. This is solely based on the updated and advanced methodology
employed by universities abroad that offer a holistic outlook to education
rather than only theory.

After deciding to study abroad, there are
certain steps on this journey that you, as a student, must pay close attention
to. Every step is as important as the last and cumulatively, these will help
you build a strong profile for your education abroad.

Step
1: Understand Entry Requirements:

         
Every country has its own set
of entry requirements; however, there are some specifics that are the same
across the table.

         
The most common requirements are
a valid passport, a passing certificate for English proficiency tests with
minimum grades/bands, and, meeting the minimum academic requirement, and
finances.

         
 Along with these, based on your level of study
these requirements are adjusted. For example, to be eligible for a Master’s
course, some destinations require a Bachelor’s degree of 4 years rather than
the 3-year program offered here in India.

         
Apart from the tenure of
education, universities abroad are also required to have scored a certain percentage
to be eligible for admission.

         
These can be checked on the
university’s website or your assigned counselor.

Step
2: Selecting a Course and Institution:

         
After you decide to study
abroad, the next step is to select the relevant course for you to study at
universities abroad.

         
Based on your most recent
qualifications and your career goals, you must choose the course that is most
relevant to your profile that will help you grow in the field of your choice.

         
In case you wish to pursue a
course that is not relevant to your profile, some universities abroad will need
you to undertake a conversion course. After choosing your course, you need to
select an institution at which you will pursue this course.

         
While choosing from the
plethora of universities abroad, you must find one that falls within the
parameters of your budget, course requirements, and career prospects.

         
Securing admission to top-ranking universities is sometimes highly competitive but still possible.

         
Other universities offer
similar courses and qualifications that you could look at.

Step
3: English Language Proficiency Tests:

         
To be eligible for education
abroad, international students are required to appear for English Language
Proficiency Tests and score a minimum score.

         
These tests are usually for
students hailing from countries that do not have English as their first
language.

         
Some popular English Language
Proficiency Tests are the IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, etc.

Step
4: Applying to Universities:

         
After you have chosen your
university, course and arranged for all the relevant documentation, you can now
start applying to universities abroad.

         
Students should have a set of
preferences while applying and shortlist them accordingly.

         
You can apply to colleges you
are sure of securing admission to, some that you are skeptical of securing
admission to, and then those that you are applying to test your chances.

         
Some universities abroad have
application fees that must be considered in the budget. Hence, apply wisely.

         
While making your applications be careful to upload all the relevant documentation and only relevant ones.

         
Before submitting your
application, check it a few times, and then once you are convinced, submit it.

Step
5: Applying for a Student Visa:

         
After receiving a Letter of
Acceptance from the university of choice, it is now time for you to apply for a
study visa.

         
These are known by different
names across different destinations. For your application, be sure to compile
and submit relevant documentation and bank statements to ensure that you
receive your Study Visa in time to travel to your destination to study abroad.

         
Processing times vary from 30
days to 60 days. These may be less or more depending on the country.

Step
6: Departure and Arrival:

         
After receiving your study
visa, you can go ahead and book your flight tickets to your study destination.

         
Be mindful while choosing your
flights and choose one that offers student pricing to ensure that you have the
weight allowance to safely transport everything you may need during your
education abroad.

         
Students must also note that
the study visas will have a start date, which is the date from which the Visa
comes into force.

         
You will not be allowed to
enter the country before that date. Plan your travel accordingly.
