Get a Head Start in Career

Here’s a quick primer on how to narrow down on a particular institute offering various courses and programs

With a large number of new institutes springing up offering various programs, it may seem a Herculean task to narrow down on one for any particular course. Overall, there are several cumulative factors that make each institution stand out. However, a bit of online research and some amount of legwork can go a long way in making the right choice. After all, it is a question about long-term investment in a career.

Classifications

As per the rules of the government, institutes are divided into various classifications, based on the kind of education and courses offered. In India, universities are recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC). Apart from UGC, there are Professional Councils, which control various aspects of accreditation. Generally, universities and institutes are classified as Central Universities, State Universities, Deemed to be Universities, Private Universities and Autonomous Colleges.

Courses Offered

While undertaking a course or program, always follow interest and pursue what one likes. If a student has a specific career in mind, they may find that only a few institutions in an area offer an appropriate course. It may also happen that a number of institutions offer courses in a particular study area, however, only a few really excel in the field. While college will get over in three or four years but the course one does will stay forever. Ideally, it’s always better to go for a program that doesn’t restrict further options. If a student has an interest in more than one course, they should opt for a course that has a broader scope. The possibility of doing post-graduation in that subject is then higher, since fewer seats are available at the postgraduate level.

Teaching Techniques And Pedagogy

Teaching quality differs among institutions, and some will always be stronger in teaching certain fields than others. Feedback about teaching and experience of a student will always be subjective, but it is certainly an important thing to consider.

Up-to-date Facilities

Institutions will differ with respect to facilities offered such as state-of the-art campus, smart classrooms, labs and libraries. Essentially, one should also focus on the facilities on offer in the chosen field of education.

Student Services

The quantity and quality of student services differ between institutions and campuses, with campus size again being a major factor. Ensure that the institution has good-quality services that meet the needs, as they can make all the difference when one needs support. Look out for mentoring programs, academic assistance, career and counseling facilities.

International Exposure

Some amount of international experience always gives an edge. So, be sure to find out whether the institution offers international exchange and study tour opportunities or has an overseas campus.

The First-Hand Experience

Every institution has a different atmosphere. It is something that is difficult to define but could make or break your university experience, so be sure to take the time to visit the institution and ensure that it has a suitable atmosphere.

Campus Location

Many students opt for an institution that is convenient to their home, which narrows down the choices considerably.

Others are willing to move (or required to move) further afield to find an institution that offers their preferred course. If this is the case, one may prefer to study in a regional location over metropolitan, or vice versa. Another option is to choose a location that specializes in the field or has a better range of job opportunities.

Moreover, if one plans to move away from home, ensure you scope out the on-campus and off-campus accommodation options.

Institution Ratings

Every institution has its strengths and weaknesses, and institution ratings will give an unbiased idea of how the university performs in general, as well as in a particular field.

Study Mode

A student may find that each institution offers different study modes for a particular course. If one requires a part-time or distance education option, this may narrow down the shortlist of appropriate institutions considerably.

Cost Factor

The course fees may vary from institution to institution and course or program opted for. However, it is not just the course fees; there are other costs too like books, laptop, study trip expenses, just to list a few. So, factor in all these costs and then narrow down the search.

Word of Mouth

Speak to students who know the institution best and will answer all questions honestly: the students. Ask friends or acquaintances who attended the prospective institutions or ask the students firsthand at open day.

Here’s How You Can Survive When Studying Abroad

edwise-logo

June 2017

Several candidates choose to pursue their post graduate studies for a number of reasons; to broaden their knowledge in a particular subject area or to gain an advantage in their careers.

Homesickness

Studying far away from your family and friends can be daunting, especially if you’re in an unfamiliar environment. While it’s natural to miss home, there’s no reason to let homesickness ruin your study abroad experience. It’s important to realize that you’re moving there for a small period of time. Be prepared for the fact that you’re going for a new experience and you’re going to meet a lot of new people, make a lot of new friends and it will be a good experience- be optimistic!

Make sure you keep yourself busy, because the busier you are, the less you think about being homesick, and also surround yourself with good people. Make friends and spend time with them; it will make you feel better, know that you are not by yourself. Try to keep contact with friends and family. Technology works its magic – Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, you name it. Keeping in contact will help you through with anything that reminds you of home and things you hold dear will also help you feel at ease at your new place.

Remember, if homesickness becomes a real problem, your institution’s student support services are always there to help, and universities are experienced in helping new students settle in.

Culture Shock

The experience of culture shock can exacerbate homesickness, especially if the culture and customs of your study destination are dramatically different from everything you were used to back home, The initial stage’ of excitement can fade into a period of feeling disorientated and lost. If this happens, don’t panic- it’s a normal phase to go through and you will come out of it stronger than ever.

One way to limit the impact of culture shock is to find out as much as you can about your study destination beforehand, so there are fewer surprises when you arrive. You should also strongly consider making an effort to learn the basics of the local language, even if you’re studying in English, as it will help you settle in and feel more confident. Getting involved in societies, clubs and activities can also help you get settled. It is also a great way to connect with people that understand what you’re going through.

Making Friends

Making new friends while settling into a new country can be intimidating, but it’s important to remember that you and the other new international students are all in the same situation, and studying abroad gives you the opportunity to meet people form different backgrounds and cultures. Be open and socialize, let people get to know you, share with them a bit of your ‘home’ and let them do the same, embrace difference and let this new experience be part of who you are.

Stress and Mental Health

It’s important to be aware of your mental wellbeing, as it’s almost inevitable that stress will knock at your door at some point. Stress can be related to the factors already mentioned here- homesickness, culture shock or anxieties about making new friends- can also likely to stem from the pressures of challenging coursework, deadlines and exams.

Students who’ve been through this kind of stress highlight the importance of taking time to make a clear plan and set achievable targets. Choose one hobby to escape into.

Also, try and stay in touch with your family; just a few minutes of conversation can leave you feeling more relaxed and energized, ready to get going again.

If you’re overwhelmed, do ask for help. Speak to university support staff and explain your difficulties to them, and see what they recommend. Simply realising that your experience is shared by others will help, if you are encountering more serious mental health issues, your university should be able to offer appropriate support such as counseling or a medical referral.

Physical Wellbeing

Getting a good night’s sleep will keep you functioning at your best. A lack of sleep doesn’t just cause tiredness, but will also exacerbate any stress you’re experiencing, and undermine your concentration powers. Likewise, keeping fit has huge benefits for physical health and mental wellbeing, and is a great way of meeting others and boosting your self-esteem. You might want to join some student sports clubs or find a buddy to go jogging, cycling with. You’ll can even go to the gym together, for that extra motivation.

Try not to have too much junk food. People think that eating healthy is expensive, but it depends on what you get and where you go. Make up your own recipes, or look it up on blogs, you can even ask your parents.

Personal Safety

Safety is another issue to consider before travelling to study abroad- and it’s likely to be a discussion your parents will want to talk about as well. On staying safe, Jess advises: “Get to know your surroundings, any points of contact, and if you’re out late by yourself maybe let someone know where you’re going and when you should be back.”

Make sure you’re staying within the bounds of what you’re comfortable with. It helps to have a bit of network when you get there, because then you’ll have people to talk to when something comes up. Make sure your valuables are hidden and don’t carry around a lot of cash.”
