10 Tips to Consider While Planning to Study Abroad in 2022


10 things to think about Covid-19 has already wreaked havoc on students’ lives. Candidates who planned to study abroad are reconsidering their plans, as many countries are still unable to control the Covid-19 pandemic and permit air travel. However, it is difficult to say when we will be free of this threat; however, experts believe that the situation is improving across the world and that things will eventually return to normal. Candidates are urged not to be discouraged and to begin planning to study abroad again.


1. Course Selection

Course Selection

First, select a course that interests you. You can compare the subjects provided by various universities and then choose the university/institute that provides you with the best combination of subjects. Healthcare, medical science, supply chain, IT, digital sectors, and manufacturing, for example, are all experiencing higher demand than others, and this trend is expected to continue for some time.


2. Duration of Course

Duration of Course

Now that you’ve decided on a course and a subject combination, it’s time to look at the course duration. Some colleges provide the same course for a limited period of time, while others provide it for a longer period of time. Examine the syllabus and length of the course semester by semester to gain a better understanding of what you will learn. To find the right path to research, you should aim to find the intersection between your fields of interest and global market demands. This applies to both undergraduate and postgraduate study.


3. Institute/College


After determining the course and duration, the next step is to determine which college or university provides the particular combination of subjects. You may want a course that is known for being provided to a good standard by a particular country or a curriculum that is so unique that only a few universities around the world offer it.
Before you make your mind up about a country, find out which universities around the world give exactly what you’re looking for in a course or institute, and you might just find that your decision is made for you!


4. Fees


It’s also a good idea to see which university offers the same course at a cheaper cost. Choose the university that best suits your budget.
Remember that fees isn’t the only expense you will face; you will also need funds for living expenses, lodging, transport, visas, food, textbooks, and other expenses. When making your decision, keep all of this in mind.


5. Country


Similarly, when deciding on a study destination, it is important to consider the courses available in that country, what scholarships you can get as well as the cost. Consider the length and overall cost of your course before deciding where you’d like to study abroad.

6. Finances


Studying abroad costs several lakhs per year, ranging from Rs15-20 lakhs to Rs30-40 lakhs. It means that, in addition to the subject and country, you must consider how you will obtain the necessary funds. If you can afford it on your own, that’s fine; otherwise, you’ll need to apply for an education loan from a bank. Before beginning any preparations for studying abroad, it is a good idea to consult with banks to see what documentation they may need in order to process an education loan.


7. Visas


Now that you have sufficient money and have decided on a course and country, the most important move is to apply for a visa. You must review the embassy’s requirements for granting visas before appearing for a study visa interview. Prepare thoroughly for the interview and be assured on the day of the interview.


8. Accommodation


If you’ve been given a visa to study abroad, the next question is where you’ll stay during your studies. You must determine which option is less expensive: a hostel or living nearby. It is sometimes preferable to live in a shared space because it is less expensive than a hostel. Before you fly into the country, look into this choice.


9. Travelling


It’s finally time to start planning your trip. How are you going to get to your study destination? Will you be travelling by yourself? Is it necessary to switch modes of transportation? You’ll have to think about all of this stuff.
Make your travel arrangements in advance so that you arrive at least 15 days before the start of the course. It will help you in adapting to your new surroundings and settling into your new home.


10. Work While Study

Work While Study

This is also an important consideration for those considering studying abroad. Working will provide you with not only experience but also financial benefits. Many students can receive as much as their tuition fees, making it easier for them to remain in the country longer.
