Most Indian students planning to study advanced courses abroad will have to plan for their future. There are many factors to consider and a lot of preparation and perspiration has to go into successfully achieving your target.
The first thing to take into account is that the process for applying for University admission is different for various countries. While there is no steady fast rule or method that you have to follow, there are certain aspects that have to be taken into consideration and some rules that you can maintain to achieve your target. Here are a few checkboxes that you can take into account.
Does your Academic background make you qualified for the course you are applying for?
This is the primary question you have to ask yourself. And if your results are not out when you are applying, you must have a good idea of how many marks you can expect. What is the course you are intending to join and in which country the university is located will have a major bearing on your prospects. You can choose the best and most reputed universities. However, they will also have set a high benchmark for admission and you must be able to qualify for it. It can also be assumed that you have chosen a program based on a goal and you have a subject under consideration that you desire to pursue.
Do you have all your travel documents in order?
The process of going to another country for higher education involves lots of tedious paperwork. It is better to have many documents ready well before you begin the procedure of seeking an advanced course abroad. There are passport and immigration papers to keep ready. There are insurance and bank formalities. You also have to apply to the colleges and universities as they have their own procedures.
Have you prepared for the exams that make you eligible for the colleges and courses abroad?
There are many international exams that can be taken by a student who aspires to study abroad. First one is the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) which is designed to assess the analytical writing and problem-solving abilities combined with logic and critical reasoning skills of the students. This is particularly useful if you wish to choose an MBA and other graduate management programs.
Then there is the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) which is designed to assess if the student is academically ready for enrollment to college for under-graduate courses. It tests reading, writing and mathematics skills of the student. This exam scores are a requirement for admission in colleges in universities of USA, Australia, Canada, etc.
Next is the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) which is chosen by students from around the world who wishes to take a Master’s Degree, MBA, Post-graduation or Doctoral Degree. If you wish to join reputed universities in Canada or the USA, this is a formality you have to undertake. Other two tests are the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). These are required exams you have to take for securing admissions and for immigration applications to countries like Canada, New Zealand, UK and Australia.
