The Advantages of Studying Abroad

Top Benefits of Studying Abroad

Many a time we come across articles and quotations encouraging us and inspiring us to pursue our higher education in a new country. The advantages of an overseas education are numerous and eternal. From the times of the historical past, when Chinese scholars traveled to India to study at Indian universities, to the modern days when we see a huge number of Indians traveling to countries like USA, Canada, Australia, and UK, we have seen a number of benefits accruing from pursuing a course abroad. Some of the benefits enumerated below are:

Experience living in a new country

One of the best and most easily discerned benefits accruing from studying abroad is the experience of studying and living in a new country. You get to challenge your own mental capacity for adjusting to new situations and people, thereby gaining mental strength which you would hitherto have thought impossible. An experience of living in a new country, even if for just a few years will make you a more open minded and holistic person

Live in shared accommodation

Pursuing an overseas education will mostly entail living either in a dormitory or sharing rooms with a roommate. Which obviously is a far cry from living with your parents. Anyone who has lived in a hostel can definitely understand the advantages therein. It not only teaches you to be independent and take decisions on your own but also makes you more broad minded and adaptable to new people and environments.

Make Friends from all over the world

It is a generally accepted fact that some countries such as USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. seem to attract the most number of international students. Studying at a university in any of these countries will cause you to have students from different parts of the world in your classroom. You will be interacting with these students on a day to day basis and will presumably make some lasting friendships among this diverse group of students. You may very well end up having a friend in every country. Imagine what an advantage that will be when you go globetrotting, you will have a friends place to crash in at almost every country you visit

Experience world class research and faculty

One of most significant advantages accruing to a student who takes the bold and decisive step to leave his homeland to pursue an education abroad is the ability to work in universities which have world class research facilities and the top rated faculty at their disposal. Many of the best universities abroad have adequate research funding which helps them to take up research projects which are at the cutting edge of their field of study. The universities also hire faculty who are at the forefront of their subject. As a student of these universities, you will not only get to participate in such projects but also get to interact with these thought leaders on a day to day basis.

Build an alumni network and boost your career

As a student in an international university, pursuing an overseas education you will be able to interact with students and professors who come from different parts of the world. You will be a part of an alumni network, which will have members in companies across the world. An arrangement which will prove to be an asset in your career, no matter where you are.

Get the advantage of a foreign degree on your resume

As a student graduating from an international university, you will be getting the obvious advantage of the addition of a foreign degree to your resume. Having a degree from a top notched foreign university certifies you as a person who not only is willing to go out of his comfort zone in pursuit of advancing his knowledge, but also someone who has a network of people around him who come from all parts of the world. This will stand you in good stead throughout your career.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
