Education Beyond Borders : America and International students

Study in United States of America

Education and America are as intricately associated as they can be. For the most valid reasons, the American universities are a Utopian dream for every student aiming for international education. Of course, the education sector of America has always been thriving with incredible diversity and we all know how diversity is directly proportional to a great deal of learning and rising above differences. This is not just limited to students pursuing Master's and Ph.D. alone, though. The education sector is also burgeoning with International faculty. In what must have been one of the greatest achievements for America, it is safe to admit that the universities have been particularly instrumental in building leaders of the future.

In the academic year of 2015-16, the American universities have admitted more than a million international students. Unfortunately, this is going for a toss with Trump's latest executive order that restricts citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen from entering the USA for 90 days and regulates Syrians indefinitely. This order has also put a stop to all the refugee immigration to the USA for 120 days. Although this order is temporarily on hold after a federal judge in Seattle issued a temporary restraining order on enforcement of the ban, the American universities are already witnessing the aftereffects of the order. Considering the scenario, it'll prove to be challenging for entering state universities or join them as faculty. In fact, performing research and returning back to the universities if they leave are some of the many conundrums that the universities, students, and faculty are dealing with, right now. However, at the dawn of 13th February, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and 17 other Ivy-League universities have filed lawsuits that challenge Trump's Immigration order. This lawsuit has explicitly made it clear that the order creates a consequential hardship for valued scholars, faculty, and international students.

The strength and the quality of the education will unquestionably possess a threat because of the lack of contributions from international folks. Incidentally, the American universities have always openly embraced ethnic and cultural diversities as they foster excellent teaching, innovative research, and remarkable intellectual growth. So, this lawsuit stresses the importance of international students and faculty, and why they must be allowed to be a part of the American universities. Having seen the success of international diversity up close, where the American Universities have been successful enough to produce students who have become leaders in their home countries, it is highly plausible that the world altogether might face an issue in developing global leaders if the order becomes a reality.

Luckily enough, the USA universities are fighting truly hard to protect the best interests of the international students and faculty. What is called as an outrage is actually a revolution with the USA's best lawyers calling together their forces to fight the order and safeguard international diversity! The US Constitution has also stepped into the picture. The checks and balances provided by this sacred US document to prevent Trump from turning America into an Autocracy, are once again proving that education and knowledge are above and beyond any borders.

Most asked questions on Google

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.
