If anyone is given a choice to study in India or abroad, they’d definitely choose the latter option. Most students who want to study abroad often want to settle in the same country, so planning well in advance for it is a very stage of your life. However, prefer to complete your undergraduate studies in India from an excellent institution and go for advanced education in a foreign country.
Here’s how you can plan for studying abroad:
1. University recognized by local government
When you visit an overseas education consultancy, make sure you mention to show you universities that are recognized by the country’s local government. Consultancies hide the fact and show you expensive universities, which are good but have the same quality of education as public universities.
2. Duration of the course
Universities in the United States and Canada take students with four-year graduation degree for their post-graduate program. Going to a college in the United States won’t make any sense, so rather go to a Canadian public college, which offers one-year postgraduate diploma program. On the other hand, the United Kingdom provides one-year master’s program, and Australia has two years master’s program and students with three years of graduate degree are eligible for it.
3. Parents’ budget
Universities in the United States and Australia are very expensive, so if your parents’ budget isn’t too high, you can go to Canada or the United Kingdom or European Union countries, where the quality of education is equally good.
4. Do your research
Many people will tell you about their experiences but don’t make your decision purely based on them. Do your research, talk to alumni of universities that you like and check their past records before making the final decision as your entire life depends on it.
