FAQs

What is Manya’s Teaching Pedagogy for tutoring?

We follow an oldest and still the most powerful, teaching tactic called the Socratic way of teaching. This method of teaching relies on continually probing into the subject with questions until the student understands the subject instead of lecturing the lesson.

Our tutoring classes begin with an expectation setting, introduction session by setting a goal and agenda after a brief discussion with the student on his/her current learning need. This approach involves identifying the style of learning that works best for the student and in-turn adjusting the tutor’s style accordingly. This is followed by an understanding where they are at the current level and working with them to get to the level of conceptual understanding that they need vs. mere superficial engagement. Each session is monitored for the highest standard of professionalism and respect for the student.

Can I work while studying abroad?

The type of VISA you have determines whether you can work and how much you can work. The work hours also vary between term days and holidays. Most countries allow students to work for 20 hours a week during the term and full-time during the holidays. Though you can work, you cannot depend on these part-time earnings to fund your living expenses because right at the time of applying for a Student VISA, you will have to show that you have ample funds for your tuition and living expenses.

Where will I live during my study abroad program?

The first option will be the campus accommodation and if there is no room available, you will have several options to choose from. In most universities, there is a Student Support Team or a Students’ Union which will guide you in finding an accommodation. From hostels and spare room listings to shared accommodation with other students, there are plenty of options that will also comfortably fall within your budget. You can also rent an apartment, if your pocket allows you to.

Most programmes, especially those for longer durations such as one or two years, require a valid student VISA.

UG and PhD applicants are sometimes invited for an admissions interview.

When should I start planning if I want to study abroad?

As mentioned in Q2, you need to set the ball rolling as early as possible, a year at the least.

How much will it cost to study overseas?

Again, this depends on the programme and the university, but mostly it is the country that you are applying to.

With respect to tuition fees, in most cases, state universities have a lower tuition fee than private universities. Then, there are also countries that have no tuition fees at all, such as Germany and Norway. Almost all countries allow their international students to work part-time, but you need to strictly adhere to the rules regarding the number of hours you can work.

When can I start applying for study abroad programs?

Roughly, the programmes start with the Fall semester in September/October and start accepting applications as early as January/February of that year till about June/July.

However, it is important to note that there would be millions of applications pouring in, so your application process should start more than a year earlier. Start researching on the programmes that suit your profile and career aspirations and shortlist the universities. Be aware of the deadlines but do not wait for them. Get your documents in place and start sending your applications just as soon as they are ready. After all, it is the early bird that gets the worm!

What are the general entry requirements to study abroad?

Every country, every university, and every programme has its own set of qualifiers for admission. Generally speaking, you have to have the minimum academic qualification and the qualifying score in entrance tests (such as the SAT/ ACT, GRE, GMAT). In addition to this, you will be expected to have a certain level of proficiency in the native language of the country that you are applying to. For example: An applicant from a non-English speaking country should have taken the IELTS or TOEFL and earned the qualifying score in order to apply to programmes in English-speaking countries. Similarly, Germany requires their international applicants to have a certain level of proficiency in German.

It is strongly advised that you thoroughly study the country’s policies for international students, the university’s regulations, and the qualifying criteria for your desired programmes before applying. If you are unsure of the acceptability of your qualifications, it is highly advised that you contact the admissions department of the university that you want to apply to.
