From the last 20 years Australia has always been in the top 20 choices of students for studying abroad. Australia is a prominent study option for students because of its geographical proximity with India, its English speaking natives and quality lifestyle. Even though the country has only 43 recognised universities which is very low as compared to the USA, the UK and other famous destinations, most of these universities are top ranked and highly prestigious. The universities offer courses in IT, Business and Management, Computer Science, Humanities and Social Science etc. A bachelor's degree is 3 years long ( 4 years with honours). Students can also work upto 40 years part time to support themselves financially. During the pandemic also, Australia handled the situation really effectively by organising it's online classes in a way that caused no study loss. Australia is your top choice in the current scenario as there are plenty of new visa restrictions that the new US government has brought for international students and after Britain's exit from the EU there is a sheer reluctance among students to study there.

Things to remember while writing Statement of Purpose

Posted on: April 14, 2022

SoP is a very vital aspect of the application. Universities assess students and their perspective towards life and their goals through SoP. Thus its very important to make your SoP as rational as it can be. You should be very careful while writing it because through your SoP they understand your strength, weakness, interests and get a vivid idea about you as an individual. Make sure you follow the correct structure and give details about yourself that are important and remarkable. Rather than writing everything, only mention the major and big ones. Tell about your background and upbringing but without getting too personal as it is written for professional reasons. Follow the word limit and keep it as simple as it can be without including very difficult vocabulary necessarily just to impress them. Lastly, be honest and don't fabricate anything about yourself as it may prove to be against you only.

5 tips to consider if you are planning to study abroad

Posted on: April 13, 2022
  • Scholarships

Tuition fees are a huge burden for most of the students and hence looking for possible scholarships is a good way to ensure some relief in paying fees.

  • Make budget

Students must make their budgets and accordingly decide where they want to live and other expenses like the kind of groceries they would buy to keep track of expenses.

  • Get yourself medically insured

It is very important for students studying abroad to get themselves medically insured because living in a different country with no closed ones is a risky thing. There are many medical emergencies one might have to go through. So to keep oneself in a safe place students must get medical insurance.

  • Overseas bank account

Make sure you get yourself an international bank account for money transferring and other purposes since national and regional banks will give you a hard time and may not operate at all.

  • Keep a credit or debit card

Always carry plastic money with you and you may avoid carrying cash as plastic money is very rampant in foreign countries and are safer during travelling purposes as well.
