Students Going Abroad: What to remember?

The number of students going abroad for higher studies has been steadily increasing over the years. While previously it was mostly for post-graduate studies, the numbers have been increasing for undergraduate courses as well. The lure of a global degree, better education, improved facilities and state-of-the-art infrastructure has led lakhs of Indian students to seek admission in foreign universities. Here are a couple of important things to keep in mind for students wanting to study in foreign lands.

Choosing the right colleges

Foreign education is a lot about choosing the right course and the right college. Research online to find out what course will suit you and how expensive it would be to study in that college. Find out if there are scholarships which you can apply for to reduce the burden of high fees. Apart from this, there are many education agencies that offer counselling, training and services to help you wade through the entire admission process.

Be aware of expenses

While studying abroad can be enriching, managing your funds and expenses is something of utmost importance. In foreign lands, things like travel insurance; medical insurance and transportation can cost you a lot of money. Thus, it is very important to find the right kind of coverage and support.
