How much do you need to pay for an education consultancy firm? How much will the total cost etc. eventually? The following article on how to go through study opportunities abroad can be useful for the student community who are seeking studies at international levels at different capacities.
From where to start an international study?
First thing first, that is to say, if you intend to study abroad, it is just foolish to process or ask for information from an education consultancy firm or depends on others for information. This is because the questions you are asking can be answered on the internet in a proper way with certain relevancy. These days with the progress of online resources, every international university provides plenty of useful information through its website. Now the Internet is in the hands of every student. You have to spend some time everyday/weekly roaming around international university websites and browse relevant sections about admission, international students, study area, tuition fees, funding, and scholarships, etc.
What information would you like to know on the Internet? Get started with a simple Google search query. Suppose you want to study in Australia or America or England or Sweden or Germany or Denmark or Belgium or Canada; whatever you choose your educational destination country. Find the relevant university through google search and then browse your intended university website for more information. To be more specific, it is your job is to search Google and collect information from the universities of these countries. All university websites worldwide have their admission information and, in most cases, can be applied online. Thereafter, the information you collect now is what qualifies you for admission to those universities or getting a scholarship. For most universities you will see separate sections, such as admission, international students, funding, etc. Where requested, English test score you may need such as IELTS, TOFEL or any other test that deemed suitable. That is, see carefully how much you need to score in the English Test to be eligible for study in your subject. English test requirements vary from science to business schools. Also, how much should you have the minimum CGPA and any particular subject requirements at a Bachelor's level such as Mathematics, Chemistry, etc?
In addition, for some universities, you may find that they are seeking a higher test score in English. In many places, your eligibility may be the same but can differ from university to university. Again, there may be universities where the test may not be required for you because your Bachelor study medium was in English or you may earn your first secondary degree from an English speaking country. All you must do to know this information specifically by visiting the university's website regularly. Try to seek and collect as much information possible for your admission as well as scholarships. This way you will get time to devote to the whole process, depending on your qualification, you can apply to some university eventually. And if you find it difficult to find out necessary information, you can seek the help of an education consultancy firm (for example British Council, IDP Education) as convenient for you and importantly relevant for your goals of study abroad.
It's easy to study abroad if there is willpower, academic eligibility and you can manage your sources of necessary funding. If you intend to study abroad, those who need information about studying abroad can read or keep this article. Please also share this article with other students at your university.
Preparation for study abroad: Things you need to consider
The offer of admission and visa application: Looking forward to new life
For example, for most universities like in Australia, the offer of admission includes all the necessary information related to how to accept an offer of admission and how to pay university tuition fees. You will need Confirmation of Enrollment for student visa application in Australia. However, try to seek as much information possible in connection with the university's relevant authority before applying for your student visa in a country with a university. Although there are some differences between countries in the world of granting visas, almost all the rules are the same. Applying for a visa is not a problem at all as long as you are following guidelines appropriately and meeting documents requirements. On the university website, where you got the admission, you may also see a separate link, the migration board of that country. From there you will know how to apply for a visa. To be brief on it, suppose you received admission from a university in Europe. Now you have to apply for a visa or residence permit. In some cases, the educational institution provides the visa application forms. For example, the Wageningen University of Netherlands helps students deliberately for applying visa in connection with student home country Embassy of Netherlands. However, you can also contact Embassy/Consulate Section of that country in Bangladesh. They are sitting there to give you information regarding your visa application.
Some student thinks facing the Embassy can be scary experience. But this is a completely wrong idea, they are sitting there to give you information or give you a visa so that you can start your studies at their institute. You just have to follow their rules and obligations, which varies country-to-country and even between institutes of a country. The visa application form should be collected from the specified embassy with the correct information and submit to the embassy along with all the necessary documents and the visa should be collected through interview on the specified day.
