Anjali Sharma always dreamed of pursuing a course in space engineering in the UK. But due to poor financial condition she had to stop dreaming about it. However, one day she noticed an overseas consultancy in the city which has helped quite a significant number of students to pursue their studies in the UK. Despite being nervous, she walked towards the consultancy and came out enlightened with the possibility of making her dream into a reality without burdening her family a lot.
For many students, studying abroad means exploring a new culture or world, making friends and having the experience of a lifetime. With these expectations, students dream about leaving their country to pursue their education in a different world. All these start with their visit to different education consultancies with a hope to go abroad along with the perks of less hassle.
Before approaching any consultancies, students should look at the consultancy's track record which includes the number of students who have been successfully sent abroad. Once students approach a consultancy they must ensure that the consultants explain the entire process with complete transparency. While selecting the course, country and university, students should consult with their consultant about the different options available to them. However, if a student cannot apply to a course, country or university of his/her choice, they must immediately find out the reason for the same from the consultant. Students must also research and find out which are the best options.
The next step involved in going to study abroad is the filling of application forms, writing Statement of Purpose and sorting out the finances. This is a crucial step as it is the deciding factor whether a university accepts the student’s application after it understands the reasons why the student is interested in pursuing the course. Students must take the help of their consultants while writing their Statements of Purpose and filling in the application forms as they would have prior experience in the same. After applying, students should be in constant touch with the consultants and also ensure that they receive all the mails from the colleges.
When students and their parents are deciding on how to plan out the finances for the study trip, they must ensure that the consultants are involved. Students should double check the course fees, visa processing fees and other financial details.
Over the years many students have gone abroad successfully with the help of consultancies. However it is also important to keep an eye on them throughout the study abroad process in order to not get duped and lose a lot of money.
