How can you benefit from studying abroad?
Posted on January 2, 2019
Many Indian students have aspirations to study abroad. While some take the plunge, others hesitate to pursue higher education abroad.
Here’s how you can benefit from studying abroad:
- Plenty of opportunities
The number of opportunities abroad is plentiful. You get to rub shoulders with some of the most brilliant minds across the globe. Studying abroad also lets you engage in some cutting-edge research options. Even the biggest names in India do not have the budget and grants like some abroad Universities. Hence there are a plethora of research opportunities abroad.
- A wide range of subjects
You can enroll in some unconventional subject when you study abroad. There are many off- the-track courses available abroad which are not available in India. Universities abroad have a wider range of subjects that you can choose from.
- Flexible education
Most courses in India focus on technology and that too with a narrow outlook. Humanities and Arts are not very popular and often looked down upon. However, that is not the case abroad. Most foreign countries adopt a flexible education structure. These countries allow you to study a mix of courses. This concept is slowly gaining ground in India too, as per Telangana Today.
- Earn while you learn
Most countries abroad allow you to work while you are studying. If you have strong academics you may also be eligible for fee waivers and scholarships. Working while you study not only ensures a steady income but also helps you earn valuable work experience.
- Cross-cultural exposure
Universities abroad are a melting pot of culture. They attract students from different backgrounds and ethnicities from across the world. Studying abroad gives you cross-cultural exposure and increases your cultural awareness. Culturally aware employees are highly sought after by employees in today’s global work environment.
However, before embarking on your study abroad journey do your due diligences. Ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements of the country that you wish to go to. Do your research on the fees, post-study work visa options, and other visa requirements. Also, check up on the weather and safety parameters in the country. This may seem trivial, however, in an unknown country, it is better to be safe than sorry.
Also, choose your University with care. Check the University rankings, fee details, and scholarship options. Also, ensure that you meet their eligibility requirements. In case you need to appear for certain tests like GRE, IELTS etc., make sure you give yourself enough time. This way, you will have the results in time for the University application.
