edwise-logo

November 2017

Studying abroad is surely a roller-coaster ride and one needs to be well informed about all the aspects in order to enjoy the ride to the core. The most important of them all is to have an in-depth knowledge about the course that you are willing to take up. As an international student immigrant, your institution and the course you are taking up plays a major role in making the journey worthwhile.

Here are some key factors that would help you choose the best study-abroad program, so that you can put your best foot forward and take a plunge to the whole new world:

1. SPECIALIZATION

Each university has a diverse curriculum and therefore, it is really important for you to compare the course contents of different institutions before finalizing the best suited one for you. Like if you are interested in Business, look around for the various types of business programs offered by various universities. Take into account the subjects of the course and then decide on a specific course.

2. SUPPORT FROM THE FACULTY

As an international student, you will need assistance every now and then to adapt to the new environment inside and outside the classroom. Support from the faculty can really help you to cope up with your issues and adjust well in the host country.

3. VALUE FOR MONEY

Studying abroad surely involves huge amount of investment and the budget varies from country to country. So a good course must be worth the amount that you are spending on it and the degree must help you earn a good return on the investment that you are making by offering you quality education and provide you platform to explore your capabilities.

4. ASSORTMENT OF STUDENTS

Your peers do have a strong impact on promoting your overall development. Therefore, a successful study abroad program must give you an opportunity to interact with people hailing from diverse horizons, which will expose you to varied culture and mindsets and give you an opportunity to not only grow as an effective professional, but also as a refined individual.

5. CREDITS

Overseas study is a lot more than about just acquiring education. A good degree should not only equip you with valuable skills and knowledge, but should also help you earn worthy credits that will help you in the future.

6. FOCUS ON PRACTICAL SKILLS

In today’s dynamic world, practical knowledge plays a vital role in helping you grab the best opportunities on the professional front. Employers give more preference to the candidates who know how to put the gained knowledge into action. Therefore, a blend of practical as well theoretical knowledge makes up a perfect study program.

7. CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Activities outside the classroom are as important as the ones inside it. Your study program should not just keep you limited to the world of books, but should also offer you equal opportunities to actively take part in various co-curricular activities such as those related to sports, quizzes, cultural programs, etc.

8. HANDS ON EXPERIENCE

A person decides to travel abroad for his higher education with a hope to gain international exposure. Therefore, the institution that you intend to study in should offer you an opportunity to earn hands-on experience. An internship as part of the course will help you understand the global market and provide you a platform to hone your professional skills.

Want To Study Abroad? Here’s How to Fund Your Education

edwise-logo

14th November 2017

Every passing year, with the rising need for premium education and the increasing demand for graduates to be at par with international standards, more and more students from India are opting to complete their higher studies abroad. However, despite having a plethora of benefits -unprecedented exposure and opportunities to widen one’s horizons and understand new cultures, experiencing topnotch educational practices and witnessing a sharp boost in employment prospects -it is surprising to note that several students opt against studying abroad because of financial concerns. However, here is a list of solutions to overcome some common financial challenges encountered while looking to go outside of India for studies.

  • SCHOLARSHIPS

While almost every university appears to offer plenty of scholarships to domestic students, international students have drastically fewer grants available to them. This, however, does not mean that one should shy away from applying at all. The best way to find an appropriate scholarship is hardcore research. Considering the vast amount of varieties in the aids offered by institutions (such as merit based, need-based, and so on), the importance of thorough research can’t be emphasized enough. Furthermore, one must explore the multiple quarters from which financial support is offered, not just from colleges, but also from philanthropic organizations, governments, and research grants.

  • STUDENT LOANS

It is important to remember that securing a scholarship alone is hardly ever sufficient to cover the totality of the expenditure in studying abroad. While scholarships often take care of tuition fees (and accommodation, occasionally), expenses for food, supplies and other overheads are large enough in most countries to warrant application for student loans. Indian students can apply for educational loans from public or private banks. These loans will have a moratorium period extending to the end of the applicant’s course or to the beginning of their employment, making it convenient for students to repay the amount once they begin to earn.

  • PART-TIME JOBS

Working while studying is an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with the local culture and to earn money to cover several expenses. Not all countries and visas permit students to work legally during study, though. Careful research in the immigration policies of the country of education is essential. A good alternate would be to undertake online jobs available on intern ship and part-time employment portals, especial employment portals, especially in the field of one’s study.

  • EMPLOYMENT INSIDE UNIVERSITIES

Also dictated by visa regulations, on-campus jobs are prudent substitutes to off-campus employment. Most colleges list the job opportunities open to international students on their websites and within university departments, making these much easier to find than regular part-time work. Since several institutions offer campus employment in exchange of free or discounted fees, this is a popular route that students can take -particularly because of being able to work in a known environment.

  • PERSONAL FUNDS

A very common -albeit steadily declining -practice is to dig into existing funds to pay for higher studies. Whether it is using parents’ money or tapping into a nest egg built specifically for college, spending one’s personal funds can be unnerving. Nonetheless, spending savings is sometimes necessary .An ideal method would be to consider it as investment for future returns, since higher studies are bound to assure satisfactory employment eventually. There are several means available to students to help relieve a significant portion of the burden. At the end of the day, funding for overseas studies calls for extensive research, planning, risk appetite, and above all, a determination to do well throughout the courses -something that the students of today’s generation seem to have in plenty!

What Makes You an Ideal Scholarship Candidate? Find Out

edwise-logo

11th November 2017

Students sometimes refrain from pursuing their higher education due to the costs of studying abroad. However, there are several scholarships that help students pay for their overseas program. These scholarships are a popular form of financial assistance and are awarded to students each year. Here’s what makes you a promising candidate for that scholarship program./p>

  • Maintain Good Grades

Scholarships have certain requirements and maintaining good grades is one of them. Therefore, a student’s academic background can be a deciding factor for a scholarship program. Good grades suggest that you are focused on your academics and this increases your chances of gaining a sscholarship.

  • Write a Strong Application Essay

When writing your statement of purpose, your goal is to stand out from the pool of other desirable candidates, writing a powerful application essay gives reviewers a chance to notice you. Your personal statement is a crucial part of your scholarship application and so it is important that you set aside time and focus on writing a compelling essay.

  • Extra-curricular activities

The extracurricular activities that you have participated in are another added advantage when applying for a scholarship program. The admissions office looks for traits outside of the classroom, and the type of activities that you engage in determines what you will bring to the program.

  • Community Service

There are certain scholarships that reward students for active participation in the community, and so listing down all the services that you have rendered to the community is beneficial when applying for a scholarship. This shows the admissions council that you are keen on making a difference to society.

Tips For Studying Abroad

 

edwise-logo

 

4th November 2017

Studying abroad could be fun and exciting as well as daunting for many of us. This arduous experience could be made much simpler and the transition much easier by making a checklist of all the things that could go wrong and making provisions beforehand to avoid them. By just keeping in mind a few simple things, the whole ‘fearful and disastrous’ aspect of such a big move can be avoided. Here are a few guidelines listed below for a much happier studying experience.

Tips for Studying Abroad by Edwise International

  • Documents and Paperwork

Leaving your country would demand a new identification, a passport. You would need to show your passport as you leave your country as well as while entering a new one. Also, if you are going out for study purposes, you would need a study visa. I would advise you to get in touch with your counselor/advisor in order to know the minute details of the whole process and also make digital and photo copies of your passport and visa.

You would also have to fill a lot of paperwork before entering a new country so keep the passport handy. .

  • Accommodation

You would also have to fill a lot of paperwork before entering a new country so keep the passport handy. .

  • Which course would be suitable for me?

The university you are applying for might have a number of housing choices, like a shared apartment, a dorm on the campus or you could choose to have a private apartment or a homestay.

Whatever the choice is, make sure that you don’t isolate yourself and miss all the fun that you could have socializing. Choose a place where it would be easy for you to interact with people around you, whether local or not. It is the best experience you could have at a home away from home.

  • Money MATTERS

As soon as you are done with finding and organizing your accommodation, start working on setting up a bank account. Also, apply for a credit/debit card as you do not want to carry cash everywhere you go, all the time.

  • Medications

Do not forget to have a word with your physician regarding the medications, if you are taking any, in order to avoid all the panic. Have a good amount of prescribed medications with you which would suffice your stay abroad or you can have the list of the contents of those drugs and could find it abroad, only with different names.

You should also get the student medical insurance card as soon as you are settled at your study abroad destination. It will benefit you a lot while you are there. You might have to pay the medical expenses right away but you can claim it later through your insurance.

Tips for Studying Abroad by Edwise International

  • Value your valuables

After all, thieves are humans. If they are there in your country, they are also there at your study destination. You would be travelling with some of your most expensive possessions, like your smartphone, laptop, ipad, passport, jewellery and probably cash. So, be attentive towards everything that you are carrying with you, as there are millions of things there that have the potential to distract you completely.

Avoid, at all cost, flaunting your jewellery or accessories that might put the size of your wallet on the display.

  • Cultivate a little culture

As you would be studying abroad, it would, for sure, make you a part of a completely new culture for short but good amount of time. So, research a little about the culture of the country you have chosen as your study destination, as you do not want to unknowingly or unnecessarily offend others or bring a bad name upon yourself or your country.

  • Create and Store Memories

While smartphones these days come with great cameras, they still are less flexible than the standard cameras. Invest in a DSLR or atleast a good point-and-shoot.

You do not want to rely solely on you eidetic memory. Put all of your study abroad experience on the camera. These pictures would prove to be the best memories of your life as you may not settle down in the same country for the rest of your life, and even if you do, you would definitely not have the same friends there with you all along.

So, have a good camera with extra-large size SD card (Probably a 32GB or maybe a couple of 16GBs), so that you never run out of MEMORY OR MEMORIES.

  • Fan of Mom made food?

Is there anyone who is not a fan of his/her Mom made food?

Yes, probably someone whose dad is a brilliant chef!

Everyone loves it, but as you are going to leave your country (not FOREVER) you would have to learn to adapt (like really fast). OR probably you don’t have to.

While abroad you have the opportunity to taste a number of cuisines, probably in their birthplace. Take a great Food Adventure at your study destination as well as at all the neighbouring countries, on weekends and holidays. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to get your Tummy GLOBALIZED!

You do not want to rely solely on you eidetic memory. Put all of your study abroad experience on the camera. These pictures would prove to be the best memories of your life as you may not settle down in the same country for the rest of your life, and even if you do, you would definitely not have the same friends there with you all along.

To summarize, the best thing to do while going abroad to study is to keep an open mind and perception to be able to put yourself in the best position to adapt, accept and absorb.

How Do I Find The Right Institute For Me?

edwise-logo

Key factors while selecting an institution are – rankings, quality of teaching, fees, career prospects, accommodation and support for international students.

If you’re planning to study in the USA, how do you choose your college? With every major American city having leading universities and colleges, picking the perfect institution can be very tough.

Apply to Study in USA with Edwise International l

When you look at finding the right university, ask yourself the following questions:

1. What is the global ranking of this university?

2. Will this university help build my career?

3. Does this university support international students?

4. What will be my return on investment?

5. Will I have a great student experience?

 

  • Global Rankings

American colleges for international students are ranked by many magazines and news programs. Since you’re not going to settle for second-best, the college you’re applying to should be highly ranked. In many cases, colleges will have these rankings on display on their website, but you can also do a simple Google search to find outside opinions, such as“best public universities in the USA.”

Beyond these general searches, also look into the rankings given to the specific programs you’re interested in. For example, if you want to study architecture, then look for how the college’s design and architecture programs are ranked. Different colleges have different specialties, and this information will help you pick the college that’s right for you.

 

  • Return on Investment

You’ve come a long way, and you’re paying a good amount of money to study in America. You don’t want to waste this on a college that won’t give you what you want out of an education.

Don’t settle for second best. Make sure the college you’re applying to have a wide range of courses, so you’re assured of getting an exact match for what you want. The best colleges for international students have hundreds of undergraduate courses, and many options for continuing your graduate education

Many colleges will also offer scholarships. These scholarships aren’t always just open to the best students at academics or sports. Sometimes, a college will offer scholarships of several thousand dollars to many of its international students. Whatever the amount, these scholarships can still help you support your studies in the USA.

 

  • International Students

Being an international student in America can be tough. You’re in a foreign culture, you’re studying hard, and now you have to support yourself too. You need a college that supports you, so you can enjoy this great experience.

Look for the number of support services given to international students. Do they help with Visas? Do they help with confusing—and important—issues like taxation? Will they support you if you decide to apply for permanent residence? All the best colleges for international students will help with these issues, so you can focus on studying.

You can also get an idea of the support offered by the number of international students studying at the college. Does your chosen college have a large number of international students? If so, then you can be assured that many students made the decision to come here before you, putting you in good company. The college will have developed services to match the larger number of international students.

 

  • Career Support

When you go to college, you want to build a career. That desire led you to travel the world, and to gain worldly experience. If you were to travel halfway around the globe only to spend all your time behind a book, it would be a shame.

Employers also look for students with real experience. While good marks are important, it is experience that sets you apart, and so you should try to have as many different experiences as you can. A college can help this by offering internships in America, work placement programs, and even support the potential for you to study in yet another country for a semester. It is these opportunities that will help build your career, as you’ll gain the experience of participating in the American workforce.

 

  • Student Experience

Going to college is a lifestyle. In America, you don’t want to spend all your time trapped behind a book. You want to go out, have fun—enjoy yourself.

Your first opportunity is in the college itself. How does it help international students meet other students? The good ones will host plenty of student organizations and clubs, allowing you to make friends easily and enjoy college life beyond the books. It may even have programs to help you meet local Americans, so you’re able to experience the American culture first-hand.

The location of the college counts. Different cities make for different experiences and present different challenges. For example, while New York City has a thriving culture all of its own, it also has high living expenses, and you may have to spend a lot of money for basic necessities such as rent. By researching the college’s location beforehand, you’ll ensure that you’ll arrive at a city most suited to your idea of fun—and one that meets your budget.
