Study abroad consulting Industry has taken a quantum leap in the past 5 years in servicing its clients with options to choose from various study destinations across the globe. However, with the unprecedented rise in demand for foreign education, also has risen the number of fraudsters in this industry and still worse ill-informed counsellors. The problem is dichotomous in nature viz. in terms of loss of time & money and bad career decisions.
In the desire to make quick money we have seen consultants charging hefty fees and sending in their clients to universities and colleges that don’t match with the client’s career aspirations. The situation is worrisome and students are helpless with no choice but to trust. We thus are making a bold move in providing you with free resources that can add value to your research of colleges and universities of your choice. But remember that though it may be free, it does carry a price. The price is the sincerity of intent and performance of your passion.
There are good sites to start with knowing about various colleges and universities, scholarships facilities, government rules and many more. An alternative could be to seek country-specific information, one can log on to foreign ministry websites. Since we believe that no single website contains the best of everything, it is thus important to filter and sort out information in terms of college ranking, tuition fees, work permits and many other factors. The QS Ranking is definitely one of the most sought-after comprehensive ranking system for country-specific, course specific, institutional rankings and other information. It’s a very comprehensive site for information gathering. Research from this site coupled with your own target outcomes will surely yield promising value. We at Global Opportunities seriously believe that a student’s research goes a long way in yielding an effective solution. It makes the task of a consultant all the easier and brings in more clarity on the subject. Though it may seem counterintuitive we seriously don’t you to waste much time on social media platforms like Facebook community or university community pages. It will only clutter to your pool of resources.
Overseas Education Fairs
Global Opportunities routinely conducts education fairs across India wherein every year universities from United States, Australia, UK, Singapore, and other European countries participate to bring to the table original insights into university admissions like test scores, visa application, tuition and accommodation, placement assistance and many other things. University representatives share credible first-hand information on course structure, alumni network, scholarships, and course credits. With more than a decade in serving our clients, we know the significance that education fairs hold. Students and working professionals are thus advised to exploit in full measure the chance to meet directly with university delegates. Global opportunities also invite representatives in its own campuses pan-INDIA wherein students can even have a 2 hour long formal interaction understanding the pathway to final admission in university of their choice. For further information on university fairs and university visit on our campus feel free to call us anytime during Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 6 am
Since we have sent more than 40,000 students by now, our future clients may even have a chance to meet with our past students as and when the situation permits. Alumni are much better equipped with the country landscapes and job opportunities available once they are through with the course program. As such it’s a much better option to rely on than the conventional approach of seeking out everything from the internet.
Magazines and Newspaper Articles
Magazines and periodicals like the Verge, Study International, and Brain Gain may provide great insights into the latest updates in college and university education from abroad. Again this is much better than the internet, where one needs to filter out loads and loads of clutter. Magazines will offer the advantage of skimming out irrelevant reports and narrow down the focus. It can save you a lot of time and research on your own. The articles are testified by industry experts and thus call for minimum scrutiny.
Make a Database Of Questions
Create a database of questions around your targeted outcomes and reserve your focus to that only. Once you design the questionnaire don’t change the list much. The next step should be to gain as much clarity on the questions as is fairly possible. Maintain proper checks and match with other credible sources. The idea is not to be perfect but be reasonably aware.
We truly believe that progressing in this manner will serve you greatly in meeting your stated purpose.
