- Why should I study abroad ?
A better question to ask is, "Why not?" There are SO many great reasons to go abroad. You know the old saying, "Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer"? That's exactly why you should do it. When you study abroad, you have the opportunity to learn about another culture firsthand, form global friendships, and practice a foreign language. The unique challenges you face will help you grow personally, gain a better understanding of the world, and improve your job prospects after graduation. You'll return home as a global citizen who is more independent, mature, and tolerant of cultural differences.
- Am I eligible to study abroad ?
Eligibility requirements vary by university and program. The minimum cumulative GPA usually varies between 2.50 to 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, while more competitive programs have a higher GPA requirement. Other qualifications may include a personal statement or letter of recommendation. Consult us for specific program requirement.
- When should I start planning ?
The sooner, the better! When you start early, you'll have more time to research in depth and find a program that suits your personal and academic needs. You'll also have more time to decide what type of experience you're looking for in terms of location, immersion, duration, and cost. It is best to start planning at least one year and no later than one semester before you actually want to depart. Pay attention to application deadlines and apply once you've decided on your program (they can fill up quickly!).
- Is studying abroad expensive ?
Studying abroad can be quite affordable and comparable to your regular university tuition. The overall cost will ultimately depend on a variety of factors including: your destination of choice (cost of living), program duration, currency exchange rates, personal expenses, type and the fees charged by your program/university.
- I have a 3rd Class, is there hope for me ?
Yes, You can do a Pre-Masters for 4months or Masters Qualifying program for 9month in the UK, Australia or Ireland and thereafter you can apply your Masters.
- What challenges should I expect to face ?
Many students who leave their comfort zone may encounter culture shock, homesickness or loneliness, financial issues, and language barriers. Remember to see these challenges as an opportunity for self-improvement, and the benefits of studying abroad will greatly outweigh the difficulties.
