edwise-logo

January 2019

English is the official language in many parts of the world. Many international students are required to take an English language exam in order to gain entrance into a College or University.

The experience of studying abroad is academically satisfying. It is also an excellent way to experience other countries’ culture through education and immersion. By taking a focused academic English language exam, you will learn the right kind of skills to succeed in your studies.

Academic English language exams develop real-life English language communication skills, in addition to a range of practical academic skills.

Overseas Education Consultants

There are a number of reasons why taking an English language test is helpful; Educational institutions require certain English language requirements for admission into the universities; immigrants need to show they can use the English language in communicating with others. While some take the test just to know their level of English.

More schools are developing English as a Second Language program to support the increasing numbers of international students. There are a number of English language tests that are accepted by schools and institutions across English speaking nations.

The exam commonly used in the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand is the IELTS. This English language exam is jointly managed by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, the British Council and IDP Education Pty Limited: IELTS Australia.

On the other hand, the most commonly accepted test in Northern American Universities is the TOEFL. This exam tests one’s ability to understand North American English the TOEFL exam is administered by the Educational Testing Service.

The Pearson Test of English Academic is another English language test that is now widely accepted in a number of countries. It tests English language abilities in a three-hour exam, which involves a number of real-life settings. In this test, students will be listening to a range of accents and academic language which they are likely to encounter at English-speaking institutes.

Since there are a number of English tests available, it can be hard to decide on a particular one. While some are more widely accepted than others, ensuring that you choose the right test is just as important. Measure your English level before you choose a test, keeping in mind the test requirements of the University.

I am very thankful to Edwise for helping me score an 8.0 band in my IELTS. I joined the IELTS classes with a lot of apprehensions. But from the first class itself I felt extremely comfortable. The faculty here has provided me with personal training which has helped me clear my examination with flying colours. I would once again like to thank the entire staff of Edwise who helped my dream come true.
ShrutiPreman – IELTS Coaching

My experience with Edwise coaching was very good! I started coaching with 5 other students and with no appropriate knowledge or idea about IELTS, its procedures and protocols. My faculty not only gave me a thorough insight of the IELTS, but made it a fun process for me. I couldn’t have expected a better teacher for it. The faculty at Edwise not just makes students feel involved, but gives them a good support especially in disciplines that we lack. The teaching pedagogy at Edwise helps us find our strengths and weakness & ace the exams. The job and concern not just ends after IELTS, but also follows up with us on our exam and our results.
VizakGagrat -IELTS Coaching

After enrolling in Edwise I felt that I am at the right place to pursue higher education, because the knowledge and the guidance given by the faculty here gave me a positive outlook. The coaching was well planned and proper attention was given to me by the faculty. I have already suggested few of my friends to go forward with the IELTS through Edwise coaching.

Manage Money While Studying Abroad

edwise-logo

January 2019

As many students these days are opting to study abroad, planning and managing the finance becomes crucial. Even though many countries offer education at affordable prices, overseas education will always continue to be a tad bit expensive. However, this shouldn’t stop you from moving towards your goals. There are many ways by which you can manage your finances in order to have a smooth experience studying abroad. Mentioned below are few tips:

Studying Abroad Overseas Education Consultants

On-Campus Jobs:

This is an easy way of making money. This is the type of job that any student can take up within the boundaries of the college campus. As on-campus jobs, students work as teaching assistants, research assistants, library attendants, etc. The university you study in provides you with remuneration for the job carried out. The money earned from on-campus job can help students to manage the small expenses.

Part-time Jobs:

Many universities have recently started allowing students to work off campus to gain industry experience. The university enables students to work part time during the college and full time during vacations. Most of the universities permit students to work for 20 hours per week (part time) and 40 hours per week i.e. full time during vacations. This largely helps students in carrying out their expenses smoothly.

Hostels over private housing:

Finding accommodation facilities in campus itself is always affordable rather than looking out for private apartments. The reason being, they offer housing facility at a much cheaper cost. In most hostels, as a room is shared by more than two people, the cost comes down naturally. Additionally, staying within the campus also reduces the transportation cost. If you have enough people to sharing a room, then you can consider opting for private apartments. Accommodation is considered to be one of the most expensive parts of the study abroad plan. Thus it becomes very important to take the right decision when it comes to accommodation.

Prepare a Budget:

Drawing a monthly budget can benefit students largely. Planning a budget helps students to understand and list down the expenses such as food cost, rent, transportation cost, tuition fees, etc. It also helps keep a check on money spent, develop the habit of saving which can prove to be beneficial at crucial times, and also indicate if there is any surplus amount left.

Others:

Keeping a check on and doing away with minor expenses that add up largely to the main expenses is very important. Spending on food in cafes and restaurants can prove to be very expensive. To cut down on the food cost, start cooking. Do not get into the habit of buying unnecessary things. Even normal things like a jacket is often double or triple the amount in foreign countries when compared to the price in your home country.

6 Tips To Secure A Job After Studying Abroad

edwise-logo

January 2019

The first thing that one plans on doing after completing education is looking out for jobs in well reputed companies. With cut throat competitions in every field, securing a job today has become a mammoth task. Nevertheless, with the right amount of experience and planning, one can land himself/herself in a desirable job that ensures a bright career/future.

Studying Abroad

Following are the ways one can adopt to gain a job:

1. Internships:

They are one of the most important aspects to look at while chalking out a bright future plan for yourself. An internship is when a student works for an organization for a short period of time in order to gain experience. Internships are an effective way of improving, developing and honing one’s skills. They provide students with hands-on industry experience. An internship is all about learning. It provides one with the required industry knowledge. Internships are the building blocks to your career. The more number of internships you do, the more experience you gain. Undertaking internships add weightage to your CV which in turns helps you to secure a job. These days recruiters lookout for those who hold maximum experience. Hence taking up internships during the course of your study is very important for your professional growth.

2. Upgrade your Skills:

The world is progressing at a rapid pace. New developments are taking place every day giving birth to new job roles demanding new skills. Due to this, it becomes necessary and mandatory to upgrade your skills. Thus one must enroll for additional courses that supplement the major area of study in order to gain the extra and required skills and knowledge. Keeping yourself abreast with the trending as well as upcoming skills thus becomes necessary.

3. Good Grades:

While you take up internships as well as other classes, do not forget that your main motive of leaving your home country and travelling to a foreign land is to pursue higher education and gain good grades. Thus your focus should be on studying and achieving good grades first. Your grades play a vital role in getting you a job. They help the employers to understand how you are with your academics, based on which they assume how your performance will be if appointed into the firm. It is your grades that decide your cognitive ability. Hence pay great attention to your grades in order to secure a job.

4.Networking:

One of the major benefits of studying abroad is that you get a chance to interact with different people coming from different backgrounds. Build a circle of people around you who are equally or more driven and focused than you are. The kind of circle you build or get into, largely impacts your personal growth as well as your future. Additionally, take part in various events and competitions you come across. You may never know when you come into the limelight and attract attention. This increases your prospects of securing a job. Talk and interact with all. Approach them and try to create a lasting impression. Getting to know people will raise your chances of getting placed in a good reputed firm.

5. Strong CV:

A CV holds immense significance. It speaks for you. So make sure it speaks high of you. What this means is that your CV should show that you are an able person with relevant experience. Your CV should mention your educational qualifications, marks obtained, projects undertaken, internships done and jobs carried out under the same, extra-curricular activities, your hobbies and what you expect to learn and achieve from your next job. Make sure your CV is heavy with internships and projects done.

6.Research:

Prior to sitting before the recruiters for your interview, make sure you do proper research. Research about the kind of job you are looking for, vacancies available in the companies, different companies you wish to work in, etc. Once you short list a company make sure to study about the company. You must know the important details of a company you are planning to apply and work for. A strong research helps you to answer smoothly the questions asked by the recruiter. This speaks well for you as it tells the recruiter that you are a well-informed individual who considers working with their firm a serious decision. This thus works greatly for you and shows you in a positive light.

Canada: An Ideal Higher Studies destination To Opt For

edwise-logo

December 2018

Canada is a home to more than 180,000 International students in any given year. Increasingly Canada is becoming the country of choice for students from all parts of the world. Canada spends more per capita on its education system than any other country in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). A degree/diploma from a Canadian Institutions enjoys global recognition. International students who graduate from Canadian Institutions enjoy successful and prosperous careers. About 10% of Canadian universities rank among the top 200 universities in the world. Canada is known for its quality education and competitive entry requirements. The number of foreign students who went to Canada grew by 8% (1.2 million) resulting in the highest number of foreign students ever admitted.

Study in Canada

Studying in Canada can be the best decision one can take in life. Here are few specific reasons why:

Quality of Education and Scholarships:-

Canada is one of the best places to pursue your higher studies. The country attracts thousands of students each year from across the world. The education provided by the Universities in Canada is recognised globally. Both the Government and Universities provide benefits especially for the students to pursue their studies successfully. Even though the number of universities is less compared to US, the education standard of most universities is on par with universities of US and Europe. Scholarships are also provided to the deserving students which makes studying abroad an achievable dream for many.

Learn from the best:-

The Canadian Education System is now being recognised as one of the best in the world, with an undeniable hold in the fields of computer, healthcare and information technology. There are many top-ranked universities all over the country and the education system can be particularly beneficial for students wishing to study transportation, telecommunications or engineering. Students looking for a world-class education on a budget should definitely consider studying abroad in Canada.

Safe and Friendly Environment:-

Canadians are one of the friendliest people in the world and you will definitely find this to be true once you are there. The country itself is quite safe, and there is a relatively high standard of living. Canada is listed among the 10 most safest countries in the world. Also, the colleges and Universities have their own safety measures, which if you follow, would help you to avoid any trouble whatsoever.

Easy to get Permanent Residency:-

Sometimes it so happens that you fall in love with the country and its culture you are studying in. So, if you decide to live in Canada after your studies then you may consider immigrating after acquiring your degree and completing at least one year of experience. Canadian immigration permits students to live in Canada for up to three years after graduation, which is more than enough time to search for and secure a job. Once you have a job, receiving permanent residency status becomes easier if you qualify for it. Once you meet the minimum qualifications, you may apply for a visa for permanent residency.

Work while you study:-

Even though Canada is a relatively affordable option, there’s no doubt that studying abroad is expensive. Luckily, international students in Canada are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week during school terms and full-time (30 hours/week) during scheduled breaks like summer vacation. Most students don’t need a work permit to work while they study, whether their job is on campus or off campus. Your study permit will indicate whether you’re allowed to work off campus.

Live in a Bilingual Society:-

Canada is a bilingual country, which makes studying here an excellent opportunity to develop your language skills and boost your prospects for an interesting career. English and French are the official languages of Canada. You develop your language skills and become an expert, if you wish to, here in Canada, which is considered as the world leader in language training. English and French are part of the Education system as second languages.

Quick Help To Write An SOP

edwise-logo

December 2018

SOP stands for Statement of Purpose. If you are planning to study abroad, it is compulsory for you to write a statement of purpose. This essay is majorly written to the admission committee stating why you wish to study a particular program and that too from their university only. Through an SOP you get a chance to convince the admission committee to grant you admission. This essay is required by the committee to understand you as a person and why you wish to study with them. It is needed to be written as conducting an interview is not possible due to distance barriers.

An SOP has the power to make or break your admission process. Writing an SOP though, is not a difficult task. To make writing an SOP easy, we bring to you the basic guidelines that will help you draft an impeccable SOP.

Study in Abroad

Major points to be covered in an SOP:

 

    • A little about yourself, educational background, your work experience and what you learnt, extra-curricular activities, etc.
    • Which program are you applying for and why
    • Name of the country and university you wish to study in and why.
    • how well will you exploit the opportunity if granted admission?

Points to be remembered while writing an SOP:

You are the hero: Remember that this is the only chance for the admission officer to know who you really are as person. This essay is all about you. You are the protagonist. Therefore narrate your story in the best way possible. Make sure you succeed in creating a good impression about yourself. This does not mean that you boast about being a fabulous or an extraordinary person. State who you really are (e.g. genuine, hardworking, intelligent, driven, focused, etc.).

Be honest: This is of utmost importance. State facts. Do not fake things just to create a good impression. It is okay if you haven’t done anything great. Simplicity can also work greatly in your favor.

Add a personal touch: Allow your SOP to talk directly to the admission officer. You can describe few events of your life that connect to your dreams or the field you have chosen to apply for. If it involves talking about some failure of yours, go ahead and talk about it. Adding a personal touch to your SOP will help the admission officer understand you closely.

Demonstrate Passion and Determination: Your SOP must demonstrate a strong passion for the program you have decided to apply for. There should be no room for confusion and uncertainty. Your SOP must clearly show that you are absolutely confident about your future and are passionate about pursuing the same.

Highlight Your Strengths and Achievements: Talk about your achievements and qualities openly. Don’t shy away. Just be careful about the tone.

Parts/Components of an SOP:

Introduction

This is the first thing that the admission officer is going to read. So make sure you start off well. Your introduction should hook up the interest of the officer. It should be unique and create curiosity. Your introduction sets the tone of the essay.

Body:

This is the major part of your SOP and should give all the important details. Mention which school and college you went to, which all subjects did you study, projects undertaken (preferably final year project), extra-curriculars you were a part of and the achievements accomplished. You can also talk about the challenges and failures faced and how you overcame them. The body must speak strongly about the work experiences and the qualities developed through them.

Conclusion:

The main focus of your conclusion is to mention the program you wish to study and why. Give reasons as to how you developed interest for the same. Then state concrete reasons as to why you wish to pursue the chosen program from ‘A’ particular country and university. Make sure you state proper reasons as the officer is always very keen to know this. Also, state why you think you will be a perfect fit for the university and why the university should grant you admission. Then, also state what and how you will contribute towards the university.

Things to avoid mentioning in the SOP:

    • Avoid using quotes as the admission officer does not want to know someone else’s thoughts but your own.
    • Avoid using clichés like “Even the word impossible has I am possible in it” as they take away the uniqueness of the essay.
    • Do not write anything negative about your country. It does not put you in a good light. Also, do not write too much negative or controversial about any other thing or person.
    • Do not be generic. Be specific and don’t sound lame or lethargic.
    • Don’t not lose focus. Most of the time it so happens that the students stray away from the main purpose and mention things which are not even remotely connected to the subject.
    • Remember that an SOP should always be written in an essay format. Do not divide it by giving pointers.
    Avoid plagiarism. Do not copy someone else’s SOP. This has serious consequences

 

Important tips to be kept in mind:

    • While writing your SOP, use active voice and not passive voice.
    • Ensure the SOP is grammatically correct and free of spelling errors.
    • Start writing your SOP a month prior to submitting. Make sure you proofread it and also have it checked by others.
    • Maintain a word limit. A general SOP should not exceed 1,000 words. The size of the font should be 12. Your SOP should not be of more than 2 pages.
