6 Reasons Why Every International Student Needs a Credit Card

edwise-logoAugust 2018

No matter which country you choose for your higher education, finances are always the most essential element. With the passage of time, education loan has surely played a pivotal role in making overseas education affordable, but at the same time, we cannot deny the fact that the introduction of credit cards has made it easy to manage the petty expenses during overseas education, which might have been a hassle otherwise. Gone are the days when credit cards used to be a necessity for the employed or business class people only, these days credit cards have become a requisite for the students aspiring to pursue an overseas education. If you are also an aspirant looking forward to pursue your further education abroad, let’s see how a credit card is a must have thing for you.

  • Secure Transactions

Transactions made through a credit card are more secure as compared to those made through a debit card. In case of in-person theft or loss, where a debit card puts your cash assets at risk, a credit card is much safer and can be easily blocked. Adding to the advantage, you can easily disconnect with the credit card in case your information is compromised.

  • Building a Credit history

Credit history is an important part of your economic success, just like income and savings. Borrowing small and large amounts from the bank and then repaying it back on time helps you build up a credit score, which reflects your accountability and further helps you a lot in case you need some loan in the future. It depicts that you are capable and responsible enough to pay back the borrowed amount on time.

  • Unforeseen Situations

Expenses such as medical emergencies, auto repairs or plane tickets can be a big hassle in a student’s life. Thus, in order to overcome any such unforeseen situation, a credit card can be your helping hand and also offer you the time and flexibility of a billing cycle to get your finances in order without being at a loss for necessary cash.

  • Collateral Deposits

A few services such as car rentals, hotels, and cell phone companies etc often insist on submitting a credit card while signing up. This is called collateral, which is something of value that can be used as a security deposit. Using a credit card for such security deposits help you avoid losing access to cash.

  • Financial Independence

Sometimes, financial imbalance can create a hassle in your life. Situations, like waiting for your salary or waiting for a wire transfer to hit your account, may test your patience and leave you in a chaos of temporary financial crisis. In such situations, a credit card is a blessing that can help you curb with the problem by helping you manage your everyday expenses, which you can easily pay back once you receive your payments, thereby making you financially independent.

  • Unexpected Charges

A few items such as cell phone plans, bus passes, and electronic toll booth readers are subject to unexpected charges. To add to it, transportation passes often require you to maintain a balance that is automatically refreshed through your registered card in case of insufficient balance. Caught by such miscellaneous unexpected expenses, you can find yourself unexpectedly without cash, thus credit card can be extremely helpful to help you survive through such situations.

edwise-logo

August 2018

There are several important steps that one needs to take when preparing for a degree abroad, and finding the right accommodation Is among one of those. You can choose from an endless list of options including hostels, guest houses, on campus housing or even private accommodation, and be sure to explore all of your options before making a conclusive decision. Here’s how you can find a place to live when studying abroad.

  • Begin your search early

Once you have confirmation on where you will be studying, you can begin looking for places. Most program providers assist with staying options on campus; however there may be certain criteria that you will need to fulfill before gaining a spot there. You can also speak to past veterans who have studied abroad to know of places that are up for grabs.

  • Be part of social media groups

The internet is one of the most resourceful tools available when looking for a place to live. There are several groups and forums online that discuss rental options in the city. Browsing through these sites allows you to check for apartment listings, look for potential roommates and even compare rent prices.

  • Location

When considering housing options, be sure to factor in the location as well. Choose a location that has easy access to your university and doesn’t require long traveling hours, most importantly one that fits into your budget.

  • Learn to adapt

Adjusting to your new home may not seem to be such an easy task at first, however stepping out of your comfort zone is necessary when trying to get the most out of your experience abroad. Living in a foreign country is a life altering experience, allow yourself to slowly transition into your new environment.

Deciding Where To Study Abroad – Not as Easy as it Sounds

edwise-logo

July 2018

There are so many destinations to choose from when deciding where you want to study abroad that it can often be an overwhelming choice. It might be best if you first narrow down the type of location that interests you the most, and then make your decision. With so many study abroad program types and destinations available to you, it can be difficult to decide where to start.

 

Blog On Overseas Education

  • Language Barrier

This is probably the most obvious of the challenges of studying abroad. Overcoming a language barrier may mean you’re struggling to learn a new language pretty much from scratch, or it could just be that you thought you were fluent, but find you’re unable to understand the strong local accent. Even if you’re studying in a country where you speak the same language, there are other hurdles to clear. So the words that students use are going to be difficult to learn, but the language barrier problem also goes away pretty quickly, once you’re immersed.

  • Finding Aboad Programme

Now that you have decided where and when you want to study abroad, it’s time to find a suitable programme. From summer study abroad trips to semester-long and full academic year programs, there are several types of programs to choose from as you decide which is best for you. As you research your options, it’s important to talk directly with the program(s) of interest to learn more about what they offer, at what cost, and which amenities are or aren’t included such as airport pick-up, onsite orientation, housing, etc.

  • Cultural Misunderstandings

As a foreigner, you do not know the local culture and all those unwritten rules of your host nation. Let’s get accept one thing: you will make mistakes, and many may be awkward. Don’t be embarrassed; learn from cultural misunderstanding and don’t make them again. An easy way to avoid many cultural misunderstandings is to observe what others do, and how they do it. If in any doubt, just ask! You’ll find most people are happy to talk about their customs, and will enjoy sharing their insider knowledge with you. From university applications, to finding a place to stay and identifying the social norms, we have all been unsuccessful in some if not all of these respects. But when you push through the challenges, everything will work out – and if nothing else, you will have lots of stories to tell.

  • Support System

Meet with your academic advisor to ensure you can stay on track to graduate on time, plan the coursework you need to take before you go abroad, the coursework you should save and take while abroad and the coursework that you will need to take after you return. Talk with your parents about why, when and where you want to study abroad. Deciding to study abroad is often a family decision, and having an open conversation with them can help both you and them plan the best study abroad trip for you as possible. It’s important to come to the conversation prepared with your points, and be ready with answers to their questions.

  • An Outsider

Regardless what country you are from, and what country you are going to, it’s almost certain that you’ll end up feeling like an ‘outsider’ at least some of the time. You may find yourself wondering why your espresso always seems to cost more than the locals’, or why everyone’s laughing, when you didn’t realize anyone had told a joke. In most countries it’s unlikely that you’ll be deliberately made to feel uncomfortable or unwanted, but it can still be tiring at first, trying to get to grips with new cultural norms. Don’t let this discourage you. Virtually everyone I have ever met while studying abroad has been very encouraging and friendly, and while I may never become truly “one of them”, eventually this problem becomes smaller and smaller.

How To Make The Most Out of Your Homestay Abroad

edwise-logo

July 2018

Studying abroad is full of adventures – everything is different and exciting, including your new homestay family. All of a sudden, you share everything with new people whom you’ve never seen before. It will take time to adjust and there might be some bumps in the road – you know, the stuff that happens when people live together. Here are few tips which will make your homestay easy with your host family.

 

Blog On Overseas Education

  • Communicate

You are allergic to peanuts, don’t like seafood, and have a fear of dogs of all sizes? Tell your host family about it right away. They should know the most important facts about you from your paperwork, but some things cannot be stressed enough – especially when it comes to health issues. Plus, it’s better to discuss culinary preferences or dietary restrictions before you sit at the table and everyone is staring at you poking around in your food. However, to be fair and polite, make sure you try everything before you say that you don’t like it.

  • Keep Your Room Clean

Host families don’t snoop through your belongings, but they do clean the house about once a week. Show them that you acknowledge that you are a guest and are respectful of their space and furniture and appreciate their help and support.

  • Spend Time With Them

Whether it’s watching the news with them, going to the supermarket, or tagging along on family holidays, try to save time to chat with them and show that you are making an effort.Food brings people together – it’s a great social lubricant across cultures. Try to be at home for the meals and help set the table or do the dishes. Food is a fantastic way to get to know people and sitting around a dinner table is like a fun way to pick up new words and practice your conversation skills. If you know how to cook, feel free to prepare something from your home country and take the cultural exchange to the next level.

  • Respect and Be Patient

You won’t always understand them. They won’t always understand you. You might not like their favorite TV shows; whatever. But you will adjust! You’ll figure out the plot, you’ll figure out the accent and your language skills will improve. It truly does get better in time! You just have to be patient and again, make an effort.Even though you paid for your stay, you’re still part of a family that is not yours – respect their schedules If you are not home for meals or activities, let your host family know ahead of time. If you missed your bus and will be home late, tell them. Even though they are not your parents, they still worry about you, so basically just pretend that you are been watched.

  • Differences

While it’s important to feel like a member of the family and feel at home, it’s equally important to remember that you are a guest as well. Keep your room picked up, help with dishes, and ask how to use something if you don’t know. You will probably have to get used to different food, to new ways of folding laundry, and to house rules that are not the same as back home. Remember: different, new, and not the same don’t have to mean bad. Things are done in other ways around the world and as long as everything works, this is a good thing and part of the learning experience. Let’s face it: it’s kind of what you signed up for. Noticing and accepting cultural differences is part of expanding your horizons and becoming a more open-minded and mature person.

  • Gifts

Gifts are awesome and a great icebreaker. Opening up your home to a stranger is an extremely kind thing to do, so show your appreciation. Many people give their host families gifts when they first arrive. If you have no room in your bag, have someone back home send you some novelties of where you came from. People love getting authentic things from your home town/state such as sports memorabilia, food, beverages, key chains, magnets, etc. It does not have to be big nor expensive but, it should be indicative of where you’re from.

  • Keep in Touch

This is a hard thing to do. Language skills come and go, you may have only lived with your host family for a short period of time or you may think you have nothing to talk about .Friendships cannot be forced, but hopefully, you and your host family will get along – and stay connected even after you say goodbye. There are many reasons why you may not keep in contact but there are even more why you should. They want to know how you are doing, how your experience abroad affected you back home, what school/work is like, plans to return, etc.

Avoid These 5 Mistakes To Make Your Statement Of Purpose Essay A 5 Star Document

edwise-logo

June 2018

Looking forward to pursue your higher education from a good University abroad ? Just good grades aren’t enough to fetch you a place out there. Your Statement of Purpose essay is an important document which can help you land in a well-reputed institution, or settle for an average one. Most of the students take their Statement of Purpose essay for granted and write it just for the sake of it, but remember the fact that it isn’t possible for you to have a face to face conversation with the university representative, and that is what your SOP essay is supposed to do for you.

So if you wish to hit the top-notch universities, make sure you avoid committing the following mistakes in order to crack admission in your desired institution.

  • Working on your SOP at the last moment

As it has been well said, “haste is waste!” So start framing your SOP essay way in advance, just like you would have been preparing for an interview. Know that your SOP is your voice to the institution, therefore it ought to be well framed. Make sure you thoroughly research about all the aspects and include all the relevant details about the course, the institution, your future goals etc.

  • Considering SOP as an extension of your Resume

Keep in mind that your resume is already attached with the list of documents, so do not consider your SOP as just an elaboration of your resume. Follow a storytelling approach and explain what triggered your interest in the particular field, your academics so far, why you wish to pursue the specific course, why did you choose that particular institution, how you are going to contribute to the institution and most importantly, your future goals. The essay should be brief, yet to the point. It should depict that you are well informed about everything and that you have taken the decision wisely.

Blog On Overseas Education

  • Plagiarism

Plagiarism is not just a mistake, but also considered as a crime in the foreign countries. So don’t even think of copying and pasting material from the internet. Know that we all have different profiles and experiences, and your SOP essay should represent that distinction. Stick to your own motivation and experiences.

  • Making it too Professional

Yes! You read it right! Making it too flashy or giving too much professional touch to your SOP essay will actually put a negative mark, rather than enhancing it. Keep in mind that you are a student seeking admission and thus you are expected to frame the content on your behalf, rather than asking someone else to do it for you. Giving it too much professional touch clearly depicts that you have got the work done by experts, rather than putting efforts by yourself.

  • Spelling or Grammatical Errors

Needless to mention, this is an integral parameter when it comes to SOP essays. No matter how good your content is, your efforts might not be appreciated if the reader keeps stumbling over grammatical errors or spelling mistakes. Thus, it is very important to proofread your statement essay. We often fail to recognize our own mistakes, therefore I suggest you to ask a friend to proofread it for you.

I hope by now you must have understood how important the SOP essay is, that can make or break your profile. Therefore, make sure you keep the above mentioned points in mind and do not make these mistakes. Remember to keep it original and interesting as your SOP must reflect your individuality. All the best !

Across the different boards of education in India, the Commerce group in higher secondary schools includes papers in Accountancy, Business Studies, Economics, Business Maths, English and the regional language.

Just a couple of decades ago, Indian students who aspired to study abroad looked only towards engineering, medicine, and law. The courses offered abroad were not just costly but not aligned with our education system here. However, things have changed considerably since then. With the progress of education and availability of various scholarships opportunities & loans, students are now exploring options beyond the traditional favourites. Nowadays, we see many students opting for undergraduate education in Commerce, Accountancy, and Management in top universities abroad.

There are a number of universities all around the world offering degree and diploma programs in the above fields related to commerce.

The USA is always the first choice for the Indian students who want to go study abroad after 12th commerce. After completing your 12th commerce, you can go for undergraduate programs like Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting & Finance, Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Markets, Bachelor’s Degree in Banking and Insurance, Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, Bachelor’s Degree in Management Science, etc. Courses like Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) offer a generalized approach towards business studies, focusing largely on interdisciplinary courses and accounting, human resources, humanities and social science, math and so on. While opting for technical and in-depth Bachelors in Science (BS) degree in business, one must keep in mind the emphasis on mathematical technicalities and further specializations.

The United Kingdom has the longest history of providing education to the world’s greatest thinkers, leaders as well as artists. The Universities are well known and reputed to have taught for a hundred of years across Scotland, England, Wales, and Ireland. It offers varied degree courses, programs and other qualifications that can make a real difference to your career prospects at the undergraduate level.

Commerce opens up a whole world of undergraduate degree alternatives. Certain degrees in the UK have made mandatory provisions for the students to work in the industry for a year. These degrees are referred to as the Sandwich Programmes. The admission process for the UK degree program is organized and dealt with by UCAS, which has its own deadline.

There are many reasons why students are selecting Australia as their study abroad destination. Some of these are the low cost of living, exceptional lifestyle, a relatively good climate and of course world-class education. Also, it is a known fact that Australia makes huge investments into the education sector. No wonder it is the third leading study abroad destination just after the USA and the UK.

The Canadian Universities has an excellent education system that ranks among the best in the world. It will provide you with the internationally recognized degrees as well as various diploma programs. The Indian students wanting to pursue higher education in Canada can either go for any 2/3-year Diploma program or a 4-year Bachelor Degree in the field of Commerce. Higher education in Canada does come with some additional perks. You can even work part-time while you’re studying. Thus, the Canadian Universities offers exceptional education, affordable tuition fees, a chance to work while you study after you graduate along with a great lifestyle in a diverse country.

New Zealand with its friendly visa policies allowing one-year extension to secure a job after graduation is gaining in popularity among Indian students. New Zealand is also among the top 10 international destinations for the students who want to pursue graduation in the field of Commerce after their intermediate. Being an attractive destination for the Indian students, New Zealand is well known for its educational institutions throughout the world.
