Quality standards of study abroad consultants

How-to-choose-right-educational-consultant.

Millions of students each year desire to study abroad, especially after graduating out of high school. This aspiration is more pronounced in developing countries like India where gaining admission in top universities is highly competitive. On the other hand, foreign nations like US, UK, Australia and Canada are home to a large number of top universities in the world.  This helps students confirm admission in one of their illustrious institutes and gain quality education.

A large number of students who are seeking to study abroad fail to gather the admission requirements and complete application at the right time, despite being a strong candidate. Study abroad admission consultants in Delhi are helping out thousands of such applicants confirm admission in their dream university and make dynamic careers. Vatslya lists the factors that determine the quality of service provided by study abroad advisors.

1. One-on-one personalized counseling: A study abroad counselor should consider certain facts before advising the student, such as his or her present qualification, grade in +2 exams, financial limitations and other aspects of the candidate’s personality that is of intrinsic relevance.

2. Well researched selection of the institution: It is important to confirm the field of study and accordingly shortlist the universities to apply in.

3. Essay editing and application development: It is vital for the study overseas education consultants to understand the importance of the essay writing and assistance.  Experts in the admission panel consider these aspects as “fundamental” and give it a lot of weightage when granting the admission.  The experienced team of Vatslya’s advisors claims that the qualified study abroad consultants should not underestimate this aspect of the application.

4. Preparing candidate for interview: It is best to assume that a student passing out of class 12 is generally amateur to face the admission panel for interview. The counselor needs to provide in depth knowledge and conduct ample mock interviews to prepare the candidate for this nerve wrecking interview process.

5. Getting the resume reviewed by professional: A resume is short biography of the applicant’s experiences and achievements.  Therefore, it must be proofread and approved by a professional and perfected to impress the admission committee.  The resume must be in sync with the admission requirement and leave a mark on the reader.

6. Consultation in a continuous manner: The student needs to be dynamically updated and guided throughout the admission process until he is established in the institution on foreign soil.

7. Scholarship facilitation: Majority of universities extend scholarship to foreign students with required potential. It is the responsibility of the study abroad admission consultant to educate the aspirant of the same and guide them in securing the scholarship and financial aid, if possible.

Money Management Tips while Studying Abroad

money management

Studying abroad comes with a lot of challenges…and managing your money is among the hardest of them! International courses are expensive, and many students go in for education loans which need to be repaid once the course is completed, and after a certain moratorium period during which the student can look for a job. Interest rates are usually manageable, and can be brought down if during the period of study you repay at least the interest regularly.

There are also several things you can do to minimise the loan amount and to ensure that your financial outlay is minimal.

First, you must chalk out a realistic budget that includes your tuition, living expenses including accommodation and food, and study material as a minimum. Add a bit more to allow for unforeseen miscellaneous expenses. Every month, keep track of your spend, and ensure that it does not overshoot this budget. If you are able to save on some money, you can spend it on an evening out or on a fun outing. Always know your limitations and do not feel that you need to keep up with what others are doing. Your friends who may have more ready access to finances may be spending a lot more than you are; do not make the mistake of trying to be like them. There is no harm in being humble and knowing where you stand.

When you work out your budget, make sure that you carry out the currency conversions accurately. Also put down the prices in your university town and not in your home town, as things will have different values here from what you are used to back home.

Priorities your rent and utility expenses; this way you will be sure of a place to stay, come what may! Also factor in the costs for food, health expenses, travel, clothes, study material and after all this put recreation last.

Start a local bank account and have your money transferred to it. All international transactions using a card, or using an ATM, will have hidden transaction charges which can add up to a sizeable fee at the end of the month. Be aware of conversion rates and do not get cheated.

Do your shopping at University subsidized stores or at local shops, rather than big malls. Supermarkets and thrift shops often have great deals at cost effective prices. Some local markets in Asia, for instance, allow for bargaining- the customer is allowed to negotiate on the prices. Initial prices quoted by the salesmen may be very high and if you are not aware of this fact you will end up paying a lot more than the item is worth. Watch what the locals do and ask for help if you need it.

You can also work part time if your student visa permits, to help with some additional income. You can always look for an evening job at the library, or at the local cafeteria. Student nurses can take care of the aged at their homes, when they have the time. A big plus is that you get to meet a lot of interesting people in the meanwhile, while earning some useful pocket money! Keep in mind that your main concern should always be your studies, so the job you undertake should be flexible and must not be too taxing. Paid internships and traineeships are a great way to earn money while you learn on the job.

While managing your money is definitely important, do not let it take away from the quality of your student life! Avoid unnecessary worry, and do plan for some leisure activities as well! Student life should be a memorable experience, not a worrying one!

Study in Malaysia

study in malasiya

Malaysia is a country of diversity that thrives on multiculturalism. It is home to numerous ethnic groups, races, and religions. Its geographical location is almost as diverse as its culture. Malaysia, known as the gateway to Asia, has just about the right balance of city life and nature. From Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers to rain forests, Malaysia has a bit of everything. Living there allows you to explore rugged mountains, mangroves and sandy beaches.

It is a country located amidst the South China Sea and is split into two parts, Peninsular and East Malaysia. The Peninsular Malaysia is made up of 1 state and 2 federal territories; and East Malaysia, separated from the Peninsular Malaysia by the South China Sea, consists of 2 states and a third federal territory.

More than Just a Holiday Destination

Not only is Malaysia a top holiday destination, it is also turning out to be a popular study destination. Malaysia has been ranked the 11th most preferred study destination in the world by UNESCO. This rise can also be attributed to their new and easy visa process. The country also accounts for two per cent of the world’s total international student population.

Cost of Living

One of the most popular reasons why international students choose Malaysia is its low cost of living and its affordable tuition fees. Students will also find that the accommodation options are quite affordable. The average monthly rent for a room could range anywhere between USD 100 to USD 150, depending on the chosen accommodation. Students can even contain their food bill for a month to USD 150 and have their laundry for the month done for USD 20!

Academia

Malaysian colleges and Universities offer a wide variety of courses ranging from the pre-university to the postgraduate levels. Undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are offered in various fields including pharmacy, medicine, engineering, law, business, economics, commerce, information technology, and education.

Here’s a look at the top five Malaysian Universities as per the latest QS Asian Rankings:

1.    Universiti Malaya
2.    Universiti Sains Malaysia
3.    Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
4.    Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia
5.    Universiti Putra Malaysia

Malaysia is also well known for being home to branch campuses of foreign institutions at affordable tuition rates. Examples of such universities are Monash University, Swinburne University of Technology, Curtin University of Technology, University of Nottingham, Raffles Design Institute and SAE Institute. Scholarships are available for eligible students.

Outside of the classroom, there’s a world of activities you can explore. You can explore the islands of Penang, Langkawi, Pangkor and Tioman and experience a nice beach holiday, or have a look at the colourful stages of Malay history in Penang. You can also head down to the famous Batu caves, a 400 million year old limestone hill with a series of awe inspiring caves and cave temples. Student life in Malaysia is filled with such opportunities for adventure.

Living in another country gives you a new way of looking at your own country and culture. You’ll come up with your own ideas and opinions, and gain a fresh perspective on where you’re from.

How to Get a Student Visa for Canada in 2017

study in canada

The universities from Canada are preferred by more than 130,000 international students yearly. Offering a high-quality teaching system, Canada is also rich in possibilities and cultures. Research, scientific publications and international collaborations are three of the aspects that Canada and its universities focus on.

1. Decide on a university to apply to and get your acceptance letter

If you’re still not sure where you want to study in Canada, you will have to decide before you can start your student visa application process. After being accepted at a Canadian university, you’ll get an acceptance letter required for visa application.

Find the right universities depending on the discipline you want to study:

  1. Masters in Environmental Sciences in Canada
  2. Masters in Psychology in Canada
  3. Masters in Computer Science in Canada
  4. Masters in Electrical Engineering in Canada
  5. Masters in Medicine in Canada
  6. Masters in Accounting in Canada
  7. MBAs in Canada
  8. Masters in Communication Sciences in Canada

Consider some of the best universities in Canada

  • University of Toronto
  • Athabasca University
  • University of British Columbia
  • University of Winnipeg
  • York University
  • Simon Fraser University
  • McMaster University
2. Check if you need a student visa for Canada

You don’t need a study visa (or study permit) for Canada if you are in one of the following situations:

  • You are a family or staff member of a foreign representative in Canada, who is accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada.
  • You enrol in a programme that lasts less than six months
  • You are a member of foreign armed forces from the Visiting Forces Act
  • You are a citizen of another country, but you have an Indian status registered in Canada

However, you will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to Canada.

3. Apply for the Canadian student visa

As soon as you got the acceptance letter from the university, it is time to proceed to the next step: applying for a student visa, which is locally known as a student permit.

The first steps to obtain your student visa:

  • Apply online for your Canadian student visa, on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website before you arrive in Canada;
  • In countries with limited internet access it’s also possible to apply for visa on paper;
  • Provide an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution (a university recognized by the Canadian government);
  • Deliver proof of sufficient financial resources to support your studies in Canada (tuition fees and living expenses);
  • Have no criminal record;
  • Submit clinical records that state you are in good health and complete medical examinations if required.

According to recent visa regulations, if you have a family member working or applying for a work permit in Canada, the application for your study permit will be processed in two weeks.You may renew or extend your study permit, if you wish to continue your studies or if your programme has an extension or if you change your school. The study permit expires ninety days after your studies are finished when you receive a notification of the programme completion.

Useful tip: check out if your country is on the list of biometrics requests for the study permit.

4. Prepare all required documents for the student visa in Canada
  • Completed application form;
  • The original letter of acceptance from the university;
  • A valid passport/travel document, which also allows you to return to your home country. If you live in the U.S.A., this is not necessary;
  • Two recent passport-size photographs, with specifications of name and date of birth on the back;
  • Proof of financial support during your studies that represent: tuition fee + 833 CAD/month (for all provinces, except Quebec) or tuition fee + 917 CAD/month (Quebec);
  • A letter of explanation;
  • If you intend to study in Quebec, you will also need a Certificat d’acceptation du Québec, English and French translations for your document, a statement from the translator and a certified copy of the original documents;
  • Proof that you paid the study permit fee (150 CAD).
5. Language requirements for my study in Canada

Unless you come from an English-speaking country, Canadian universities will require you to submit proof of English language proficiency. Accepted language tests are:

  • IELTS
  • Cambridge English: Advanced
  • TOEFL

Proof of your language skills is not included on the list of required documents for a Canadian student visa. But it is a good idea to have some proof of English ability, just in case.

6. Biometrics appointment and interview

Depending on the requirements for your country, you might have to show up at a Visa Application Centre in your country to have your biometrics taken. The biometric fee is 85 CAD. This fee is in addition to the regular visa fee. Some countries are exempt from the biometrics visit, so it’s likely they won’t need to visit an application centre at all.

Depending on your individual situation you might also be called for an interview. Local visa application centres will charge a small fee for using their services.

8 Reasons to plan study MS in USA 2 years before graduating B.Tech/BS ?

masters in usa

One of the things with international students is NOT planning ahead of time. Students decide to study MS in US in the eleventh hour and say I do not have time. They start googling “ How to prepare for GRE in 1 month? How to prepare for GRE in 15 days ? One month or Two months”.Do you think you can prepare for GRE in 15 days ? You are not trying to cram a bunch of words and vomit in the GRE. Let me share some of my thoughts.

Why Should you plan 2 years before graduating from B.S or B.tech ?

Many students are not sure what they want to do until final year of Graduation, they tend to rush at everything. The chances are some succeed and some fail…there is very less margin for error. Here are the top 8 reasons to plan before 2 years.

   1. Passport Name issues : Many students underestimate the issues of mistakes of names in Passport. Though it seems minor, it is important to apply ahead of time. If you do at last minute and you get mistakes, you cannot even book GRE date.  It just creates more pressure on you. Read Apply for Passport, Issues
   2. Preparing for GRE / TOEFL : GRE is not about cramming bunch of words…It is about learning the language, complex vocabulary that hones your skills, and increasing your ability to read more and grasp the gist of it. The whole point of GRE is to make sure you have the abilities for Graduate school life and career. If you start late, you have no idea what to do and you just Google, some survive…but not the optimal choice. Same is the case with TOEFL, listening skills, language, etc. You need time. The sooner you realize, the more time you have to digest the things and learn good things.

   3. Preparing for Statement of Purpose(SOP): Significant number of students do not spend time on writing SOP. They do not realize the importance of SOP. You need to have a goal for MS or MBA. Take time to review your goals and then write SOP. If you do not have time, you write a bad SOP or copy it, which is NOT good. Read: What is SOP ?  Importance and  Why NOT to Copy SOP  

4. Research About Grad Schools in US : This is probably the most important part.  If you do decide in the last minute, the chances are you do not have time to look up schools, their programs, life at school and interact with current students and ask their opinion, funding, etc. The chances are you either go to education consultants or seek advice from someone, which may or not may be the best…So, decision early and planning will give you sufficient time for researching schools and validating others opinion.
   5. Funding like TA, RA, GA or Scholarships: If you decide and apply in the last minute, you do not have time to communicate with professors for funding. You may miss the Scholarship deadlines…if you can plan ahead, you know whom to contact and when to apply to reap the benefits. Read  : How to Email Professors  for Funding and  Scholarship Deadlines
   6. Recommendations, Transcripts, Bank Statement : Many of the students underestimate the time it takes to get transcripts, recommendations and Bank statements. You need to plan for these things ahead of time…You cannot do these things in last minute.  If it is a small University and you have full knowledge of system, you may get away, but most of the times you need time for these things.
   7. Re-take GRE, TOFEL- NOT good scores : Sometimes, you may not do very well during first time, you may need to re-take the test GRE and TOEFL. You cannot do this if you do it at last minute…I have seen students waste one year just because they did not had time to re-take the test. Remember, this is very critical piece of your application for admission and funding decisions. You should give some buffer time to retake test if needed.
   8. Unforeseen Issues : All of us hope to get everything done without having any issues….but unfortunately, in real world, it does not work that way…some things are unavoidable…your application process can be impacted by many things like issues in family, your health issues…anything that is unforeseen, you need some buffer time or backup time to deal with these.

Recommendations for Planning to Study MS in US :

* Take some time, when you are two years away from graduating from B.tech or B.S, and decide what direction you want to go in your life.
* Put everything on paper: your goals, vision, what you want to do.
* Seek a Mentor : ask your seniors, friends, family, cousins, and professors for advice. Talking to someone about your thoughts is the best idea.
* Formulate a rough plan and think through it, share it with family, friends and seek their advice

The reality is, everyone will support you if you tell then what you want to do in career. It is best for you to have a good plan rather than rushing in last minute and betting on something like lottery.

How to Choose an Appropriate Study Abroad Program

study abroad

It is important that students choose an appropriate study abroad program to get the most out of an international experience. Because there are a variety of program types, structures, locations, and requirements, it is worth the time and effort it takes to find a study program that meets your individual academic and personal needs.

Study Abroad Programs have distinctive characteristics, like students, and thus it is important to find the right “match” between the student and the program. Your friend, or sister, or teacher may have participated in a program that was “absolutely great” for them, but may not be a good fit for you. Thus, a glowing recommendation from someone who went on a program is not necessarily the most appropriate approach to choosing a program.

  • Understand your needs and characteristics before choosing a study abroad program
  • Explore several options and compare program characteristics
  • Choose a study abroad program that fits your needs and characteristics

Your Needs and Characteristics

Ask yourself these questions, and get a friend or family member to confer with you on these topics.

  • What type of courses do you need to take (major requirements, major electives, general education requirements or lower-division courses, electives)?
  • What academic topics do you need (and want) to study (only your major, or a mix of academic disciplines)?
  • Does your home institution approve experiential courses (ie, internships, field study, independent study, independent research, service-learning, touring)?
  • Can you take courses in another language / are you sufficiently fluent?
  • Do you have beginning or intermediate foreign language skills?
  • Does your home institution have requirements about the number of weeks and/or contact hours the courses must fulfill to transfer credit?
  • Would you feel comfortable living in a fast-paced, urban city where it is difficult to make friends and interact with locals living in a city?
  • Do you feel comfortable using public transportation (buses, taxis, trains)?
  • Would you prefer to live in a community where you can easily navigate your way, and meet local people?
  • Does the weather bother you? Have you experienced the type of climate common to the host country you are considering?
  • Are you a self-starter, outgoing, and self-motivated, experienced in exploring new/different situations?
  • Do you prefer functioning in a group with leaders and/or guides making decisions for you and being surrounded by others much like yourself?
  • Do you have any dietary, medical or mental health needs?
  • Do you want to become a “specialist” in one location (language and culture and history and current events) or do you want a comparative perspective of several different places and perspectives?
  • Have your friends or family ever called you “high maintenance”? Do you have a high level of attention to conveniences, personal appearance, the newest fads or specific activities?
  • Do you enjoy camping, hiking, backpacking, “roughing it”?
  • Do you have a good sense of how (and if) you will use alcohol in a mature setting? Have you ever been disruptive of others or put your well-being at risk with alcohol?
  • Have you ever traveled before? Outside the U.S.? If yes, how long and where?
  • How long have you ever been away from “home” before, away from family and friends?
  • What type of leisure activities do you enjoy? What do you do with your “free-time”?

10 reasons why you should study in a foreign country

study abroad

Have you considered studying abroad, but are not sure whether it’s worth your time? If you ask anybody who has studied abroad, he or she will most certainly tell you that it is a life-changing experience and one of the most rewarding things he or she has ever done. Perhaps you’re not certain what benefits you can reap from an extended stay in a foreign country. Here are 10 very excellent reasons why you should take the plunge:

1. Study abroad is the optimal way to learn a language. There is no better and more effective way to learn a language than to be immersed in a culture that speaks the language you are learning. You’re surrounded by the language on a daily basis and are seeing and hearing it in the proper cultural context. Language learning happens most quickly under these circumstances.

2. Study abroad provides the opportunity to travel. Weekends and academic breaks allow you to venture out and explore your surroundings – both your immediate and more distant surroundings. Since studying abroad often puts you on a completely different continent, you are much closer to places you might otherwise not have had the opportunity to visit. Some more structured study abroad programs even have field trips planned in or around the curriculum.

3. Study abroad allows you get to know another culture first-hand. Cultural differences are more than just differences in language, food, appearances, and personal habits. A person’s culture reflects very deep perceptions, beliefs, and values that influence his or her way of life and the way that s/he views the world. Students who experience cultural differences personally can come to truly understand where other cultures are coming from.

4. Study abroad will help you develop skills and give you experiences a classroom setting will never provide. Being immersed in an entirely new cultural setting is scary at first, but it’s also exciting. It’s an opportunity to discover new strengths and abilities, conquer new challenges, and solve new problems. You will encounter situations that are wholly unfamiliar to you and will learn to adapt and respond in effective ways.

5. Study abroad affords you the opportunity to make friends around the world. While abroad, you will meet not only natives to the culture in which you are studying, but also other international students who are as far from home as yourself.

6. Study abroad helps you to learn about yourself. Students who study abroad return home with new ideas and perspectives about themselves and their own culture. The experience abroad often challenges them to reconsider their own beliefs and values. The experience may perhaps strengthen those values or it may cause students to alter or abandon them and embrace new concepts and perceptions. The encounter with other cultures enables students to see their own culture through new eyes.

7. Study abroad expands your worldview. In comparison with citizens of most other countries, Americans tend to be uninformed about the world beyond the nation’s boundaries. Students who study abroad return home with an informed and much less biased perspective toward other cultures and peoples.

8. Study abroad gives you the opportunity to break out of your academic routine. Study abroad is likely to be much unlike what you are used to doing as a student. You may become familiar with an entirely new academic system and you will have the chance to take courses not offered on your home campus. It’s also a great opportunity to break out the monotony of the routine you follow semester after semester.

9. Study abroad enhances employment opportunities. Did you know that only 4% of U.S. undergraduates ever study abroad? Yet, the world continues to become more globalized, American countries are increasingly investing dollars abroad, and companies from countries around the world continue to invest in the international market. Through an employer’s seyes, a student who has studied abroad is self-motivated, independent, willing to embrace challenges, and able to cope with diverse problems and situations. Your experience living and studying in a foreign country, negotiating another culture, and acquiring another language will all set you apart from the majority of other job applicants.

10. Study abroad can enhance the value of your degree. While abroad, you can take courses you would never have had the opportunity to take on your home campus. In addition, study abroad gives your language skills such a boost that it is normally quite easy to add a minor in a language or even a second major without having to take many more additional courses after the return to your home campus.

Reasons to Approach Overseas Education Consultant

study abroad

India has turned into a country which is sending a huge number of students to study in abroad every year. The reason for rising craze among students to go to abroad for higher studies is because these are among the top destinations in the world over.

There could be hundreds of reasons why a student would want to study in abroad and we have listed some of the most important reasons here:

-To get a global perspective and widen their horizons. They also get a chance to experience diversified cultures of the world.
-To form a global network of social contacts.
-To improve their communication skills.
-To become self-dependent by developing proficient problem- solving skills.
-To learn most updated technology and explore new concepts and ideas.
-To be an all-rounder, primed for better prospects.
-To be a global citizen.

Due to the above reasons, which are quite significant, a student wants to study abroad and where arises the need of consulting to an overseas education consultant. Let us throw some light on why choose a higher education consultant and what benefits do we get by consulting to them;

Career Counseling: Counseling is of course the first right step when deciding to study overseas. It helps students to take right decision for their bright future. Such type of counseling is given only by the higher education consultant.

Helps direct where and when to go: It is little difficult for a student to decide in which country he/she should go, this is where a consultancy comes to help. A consultant can best help the student by suggesting the best university for a particular course that the students want to pursue.
