  • Which country should I choose? What program is right for me?

It's a personal choice. You can ask yourself some basic questions like the following that can help you pick a program:

In which part of the world would you like to study?

Which country would you like to study in?

When do you want to go?

For how long do you want to go?

What do you want to study?

What language of instruction would you prefer?

Do you want to have other opportunities such as internship or job along with your academic course?

What type of housing would you like?

What is the cost of the program?

  • How can I stay in contact with my friends and family while I am abroad?

Telephone and internet access may vary as per the location of your program. You can keep in touch with your friends and family by using phone cards, that can be easily available every where. The internet also offers a variety of ways to keep in touch through email, blogs, websites, facebook, MySpace, IM, and skype. 

  • Will I get homesick?

It completely depends on the student. An appropriate "cure" for homesickness is to participate in a lot of activities and interaction with myriad people. Don't let this worry you - most students who study abroad experience some level of homesickness or culture shock.

  •  How will a study abroad experience enhance my employability after I graduate?

Employers seek graduates who have international experience. Skills like international knowledge, cross-cultural communication skills, flexibility, resilience, and the ability to adapt to new circumstances are enhanced through foreign education, and are important to employers in various fields. 

  •  When should I start planning to study in a foreign country?

Early planning is the key. Hundreds of study abroad opportunities exist; they differ in location, duration, curriculum, language, cost, and many other factors. To find the program that is the right "fit" for your personal and academic objectives, you should begin planning your study abroad experience at least one semester before you plan to depart. 

  •  What would be the cost of education?

The cost of studying in foreign country varies from country to country. It depends on the living cost of the place one chooses. Generally, programs with equal excellence in developing countries are less expensive than those in developed countries. The costs include tuition fees, housing with meals, transportation charges, travel and excursions, cultural activities and personal expenses. 

  •  I am an average student; can I go to foreign country for studies?

Yes, of course. Your entry to a university is based on your academic performance. In most cases, the universities scrutinize the applications through various parameters such as statement of the purpose and your earlier expertise in the proposed field of study and few other things. So, the percentage of marks is not the only entry requirement that is considered for the admission. 

  •  How do I make a choice about the university, the course and the place?

We work as a friend and an advisor with the aspirant in making the best possible and most appropriate choice. 

  •  How long is the admission procedure?

It varies from institute to institute. Approximate time taken by a college or a university would be around 5 to 8 weeks. 
However, IES try its best to get the University's response about students' acceptance at the earliest. 

  •  What kind of accommodation will I get while I study abroad?

University halls, hostel of residence;

Self-catered - where the students can cook their own food;

Catered - where the student is provided with the food;

Private accommodation;

Rented shared apartment (Students can make their own group of colleagues or could directly join other people living in an apartment in a separate room on rent)

Stay in a hotel or a guest-house

  •  Do I need to be financially rich to study abroad?

Not necessarily. The banks in whole world are quite encouraging these days in terms of providing education loan facilities to students. A collateral security either by your parents or by an acceptable sponsor can be used to secure the loan. 

  • Do I need to write any entrance exams to apply for the universities?

Most of the countries do not enforce any entrance exams, except a few special category programs such as medical and dental. 
However, all the countries will require a language testing score or comparative assessment as an entry requirement. The types of test they prescribe vary from country to country. Please contact our office for further details.
