5 Steps To Enter The U.S. World Of Education

edwise-logo

February 2019

The US is one of the most popular study destinations among students. Whether you plan to pursue a short-term or full degree program in the United States, we give the resources you need in just 5 steps.

Study Abroad in US

STEP 1: Research your options

The first step to studying in the United States is researching your options to find a college or university that best fits your needs. You shouldn’t try to match yourself to the school, but rather find the school that matches you and your priorities and long-term goals.

Remember that no official ranking system exists for colleges and universities in the United States. The best college or university is the one that is best for you and meets your requirements—academic, financial, and personal.

You should begin your research at least 12 to 18 months prior to the academic year in which you hope to attend a U.S. college or university. Start by answering some basic questions and looking at the more specific ‘define your priorities’ pages under each level of study. Some of the basic questions that you need to ask yourself are:

-Why do you want to study in the United States?
-Where will you best fit in?
-Which colleges or universities will meet your needs?
-Will you need financial assistance?
-What are the application and financial aid deadlines?
-Where do you want to live in the United States?

STEP 2: FINANCE YOUR STUDIES

Invest in yourself! The cost of living and studying varies across the United States. With the right amount of planning and research, pursuing a U.S. higher education can be made affordable with high returns on your investment.

Start your financial planning as early as possible. Each year international students receive significant amounts of financial assistance for their studies. However, competition is high. Applications for financial aid go together with applications for admission.

When looking into studying in the United States, evaluating your finances should be one of the first things you do. As with any investment, you need to evaluate what’s best for your educational and career goals and how much you are willing to spend.

One must look for special opportunities and financial aid. U.S. institutions offer a wide array of programs with a wide array of tuition and fees. Find information about special opportunities and financial aid provisions that U.S. higher education institutions offer to international students, such as scholarships, in-state tuition benefits, waived application fees and deadlines, and similar provisions.

STEP 3: APPLY TO UNIVERSITIES:

Once you have arranged for sufficient finances to fund your complete abroad education, start applying to the universities you wish to study in with the proper and apt details. Complete your application. This step covers the general application requirements for U.S. colleges and universities.

Applying for U.S. study is a task that takes time and concentration as each application is different and involves collecting recommendations, writing essays, and routing the results of required standard examinations. Plan to give this step the time it deserves for a successful result

STEP 4: APPLY FOR YOUR STUDENT VISA

This is the most crucial step in your entire admission process without which your study abroad dream will remain a mere dream. Make sure to keep all the documents required for the visa process ready.

STEP 5: PREPARE FOR YOUR PRE-DEPARTURE

Attend Our Pre-Departure Orientation

STEP 5: PREPARE FOR YOUR PRE-DEPARTURE

This step is followed after you acquire the visa. Preparing for your departure is the final step to Your ‘Five Steps to U.S. Study.’

Key components to this final step include making your travel arrangements, attending a pre-departure orientation at your local place or online, gathering pre-departure materials and documents for arrival, as well as reporting to your school and attending orientations.

Check your new institution’s website for additional pre-departure information that will be more specialized and have information about health insurance, average local temperatures throughout the year, local transportation options, housing, and more.

Attend Our Pre-Departure Orientation We at Edwise organize pre-departure orientations for students getting ready to depart for the United States. Our U.S. alumni provide information and resources that help you prepare for new experiences and give out valuable information you will require once you land in the U.S. Topics discussed include cultural differences, motivation, changes from your home environment, academic systems and expectations, housing, coping in a new cultural settings, etc.

New Zealand: A Land Of Wide Opportunities

edwise-logo

February 2019

New Zealand, situated in the southwestern region of the Pacific Ocean, is an absolute wonder to visit. One is sure to fall in love with this country due to its peppy culture, natural scenic beauty, large landscapes, volcanic plateaus, calm lakes, and swiftly flowing clean rivers. Living in the midst of this pure nature is like experiencing heaven on earth.

Just as its nature is beautiful so are its people. New Zealanders are known for being friendly, hospitable, and for welcoming new people into their land with a warm heart. This hospitable quality of theirs is known us ‘Manaakitanga’.

Study Abroad in New Zealand

New Zealand is a recent upcoming study destination that is gaining popularity among prospective students. With its variety of courses available to be offered and degrees enjoying global recognition, New Zealand is a favorable choice to make. Moreover, 7 of the 8 Universities in New Zealand have consistently featured in the top 500 Universities across the globe.

New Zealand has recently updated/modified its immigration/visa policy under which 3 years Post-Study Open Work Visa will be provided with minimum 1 year Study Program.

Indian students constitute a major part of the international students present in the country. One of the major reasons for this can be that New Zealand follows the British system of education which is quiet similar to the Indian system of education. Also, the education system in New Zealand is more research oriented and strongly academic in nature in comparison to the vocational courses available.

There are three major degrees offered in the country, namely the Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree. A bachelor’s degree is mostly of 3 years, except for some specialized courses where the duration of the study might exceed the time of 3 years. In order to receive an Honor’s degree, students need to continue their bachelor’s degree program for another year, completing which, the students become entitled to receive the Honor’s Degree. Further the Master’s degree can only be pursued after the completion of the Bachelor’s degree. However, if one wishes to pursue a Doctoral Degree, then one must have completed either a Master’s degree or a Bachelor’s Degree with Honors.

The academic year in the universities of New Zealand is from mid/late February to early November. Most universities have two semesters with a holiday of four weeks in June. These dates differ from university to university. The intakes of these universities generally take place in February, May, July, and at times in September. It is suggestive of students to start prepping for application at least 6 months before the intake period as the universities take around six weeks to process the application and another six weeks are consumed by the visa process.

All students applying to universities in New Zealand must take the English proficiency tests in order to prove their ability to communicate in English. Taking this proficiency test is mandatory in order to be eligible to study in New Zealand.

The admission requirement for each school/college/university/ varies from that of another, however the one thing that is commonly required by all is 13 years of compulsory education for enrolling yourself for higher studies.

Students here are not only subject to receiving high quality education, but are also given the opportunity to gain hands on industry experience by working part time (20 hours) during college and full time (40 hours) during vacations.

The country offers a wide variety of scholarships through the state owned as well as private institutions to its international students which provides great aid to those who require financial assistance. Currently New Zealand is facing skill shortages in the field of Engineering, Business Management, Agriculture and Forestry, Health and Social Services and Science. This makes it a hot destination for the prospective international students to choose New Zealand as a study destination.

India and Overseas Education

February 2019

As per the UNESCO’s Institute of Statistics, the number of Indian students studying abroad is approximately above 3, 00,000. India is the second largest source of international students after China. Apart from USA, UK, and Canada, Indian students are now increasingly choosing to study in Australia, New Zealand, France and Germany as well. The most applied for courses include Business Management and Engineering which is then followed by Computer Science and IT.

India has seen an immense increase in the number of students flying abroad to pursue higher education in the recent years. The reasons for this are varied and differ from person to person.

Study Abroad consultants in India

Innumerable Options To Study Abroad Rather than In India:

One of the major reasons why Indian students choose to study abroad is because they fail to find a course/program that best suits their interest back here in India. There are many courses which aren’t available in the country. However, there are nth number of courses and programs available abroad. Every Indian student is sure to find a course of his/her choice in different countries. This is why Indian students search for the course available outside of India.

Top Quality Education:

As some of the best and top ranking universities of the world known for providing high quality education are situated outside the nation, students aspire to study abroad. Most of the universities abroad offer rich, in-depth knowledge to its students making them career ready. Such universities churn out intellects and opens up brighter avenues for them. This is one of the many crucial reasons why Indian students choose to study abroad.

Global Exposure:

Studying abroad enables students to meet new people from different backgrounds providing exposure to the Indian students. Gaining exposure is very important for an overall personality development. It helps students in broadening their vision and mind set. By studying abroad, Indian students will be able to study and understand the global scenario from various perspectives. As many students belonging to different nationalities meet each other in a foreign land, exchange of ideas, opinions, and culture takes place. Global exposure also exposes students to ample amount of opportunities.

High Employment Prospects:

Achieving a degree from abroad not just increases but boosts your job and career prospects to greater heights thereby providing higher salaries. Recruiters these days are willing to appoint those holding rich educational qualification. Your international degree thus has immense potential in adding high value and weightage to your resume which in turn increases job prospects. This is another reason why studying abroad can be beneficial.

Working and Living Abroad:

Another reason why Indian students today are choosing to study abroad is to gain international work experience. Some countries enable their international students to work for a period ranging from 1-3 years to gain hands on industry work experience after the completion of their course. For this though, students must make sure they comply with the visa rules of the particular countries they are studying in. Many a times it so happens that these Indian students decide to stay back in the country and live there after acquiring the PR (Permanent Residency) Visa.

Intensive Research Opportunities:

Research opportunities are abundant in foreign countries. Those wanting to study subjects that involve carrying out research, must definitely go abroad to study as the universities provide the apt infrastructure such as lab facilities, better prospects and also the faculty of these international universities provides immense support and assistance to its students.

Self-Growth and Development:

Above all, studying abroad in a foreign land fosters one’s personal development. By meeting new people, studying in a new environment, adopting ethics, values and culture of new people and place, working and adapting to a complete new atmosphere, a person is bound to grow and develop. Studying abroad boosts one’s confidence, makes one not just educated but also literate, teaches one to groom and conduct self in competitive and professional spaces.

Importance of Active Participation in Class

February 2019

As an international student, trying to adapt to new surroundings, new teaching and studying methods, new class environment, new people, etc. can become quiet daunting. Nevertheless, until and unless you don’t mix around and interact with people, you won’t be able to adapt. Most of the interaction and bonding takes place in the college, during classes and in the campus. Make sure to make the most of it.

Class participation, thus is an important aspect of adapting to the new lifestyle. When students speak up in class, they learn to express their ideas in a way that others can understand. When they ask questions, they learn how to obtain information to enhance their own understanding of a topic.

Just as speaking in front of a group doesn’t come easily to many adults; similarly, speaking up in class is a struggle for many students. That struggle might manifest itself in the classroom in a variety of ways — not volunteering to answer questions, not asking for help, not speaking up in small-group activities, even not talking in class at all.

However, taking active part in the class is of utmost importance. Major reasons to support the mentioned statement are as follows

Studying Abroad

1.To Develop Confidence In Self:

Confidence is the most important accessory one should wear. This is why one should participate in the class. It helps develop confidence in self. Most of the students have the fear of speaking in a group or before people. This fear goes ignored and they never really overcome it. Having the quality of being able to speak confidently before a group of people, holds immense importance when you enter the real world. For this, students push themselves and learn to speak up in class as this is the right place and time to overcome your fear. When you start actively participating, you develop a sense of confidence that guarantees you a comfort of speaking before people in the near future.

2.Increase Attention Span:

Sitting through long lectures can get monotonous. Listening to one person talk for hours can lead to one losing interest. It so happens that the students paying attention in the class. This is the reason why students must participate and interact with the professor as well as the classmates in order to keep the environment of the class active. When students raise doubts, discuss and interact, the lecture doesn’t get monotonous and help students in focusing more thereby increasing the attention span.

3.To Keep One Engaged:

Even if a question gets raised in the class, it piques everyone’s interest. This helps the students to stay engaged. It propels students to think about the question asked, its possible answers, connect dots, etc. This leads to the development of thinking and analytical skills of students. Thus participating in class not only keeps you engaged but also the rest of the classmates.

4.To Be Able To Openly Put Forth Opinions:

When you participate in the class and start paying attention, by default you start thinking and analysing about what is being told to you and taught. You start putting your own thoughts into what is being taught. When you feel that your thoughts differ from that of the professor or fellow mates, you feel the need to express your opinions. In this contemporary world, having an opinion of your own is absolutely necessary to be able to survive in a competitive industry and not be gullible. Taking active part in the class prepares you to openly and fearlessly express your opinions.

5.Wide Exchange Of Ideas:

Raising questions and sharing thoughts with each other generates various ideas. Listening to and sharing your own thoughts with classmates helps in understanding how various individuals think. It also enables exchanging of interesting facts, information and knowledge that can help in the future.
