Are you among those who still believe that studying overseas is not feasible? You don’t want to risk it anymore. But, for what basis? Is someone in your circle had incorporated some misconceptions into your mind about studying abroad? But we can’t let your dream shatter so soon. So, it’s time to expose some age-old myths about foreign study.
Many students from India nurtures a dream to study in a foreign country from childhood. The picturesque beauty of the campus attracts them. However, It’s also a fact that many of them never take the necessary steps to chase their dream.
One of the significant reasons for this can be the monetary factor. The other can be, the mental barrier. The more one thinks that the chances to get selected in one of the best foreign university is slim, the more they get indulged in negative thoughts. Later, this barrier makes the dream impossible to achieve.
Myth is nothing but the widely believed false idea that fascinates a person. But before jumping into any conclusion, it is always recommended to check the facts. Is it so tough to get selected in one of the best university that you often dream about? Let’s take a look at some of the myths that no longer exists. This may let you stop dreaming and finally take the actions.
Many students commonly believe that studying abroad is only a rich people thing. A middle-class student can’t afford an overseas studying dream like affluent classes. No doubt compares to higher studies in India, studying in abroad is expensive. But this is also a fact that half or full of the tuition fee can be saved through a scholarship.
There are many scholarships available for international students. A student can apply for those merit-based, program-based, destination-specific, student-specific scholarships when considering to study abroad. Also, a student can get the information by contacting the shortlisted universities about any particular scholarship.
Many students in India are not fluent in English because it’s not their mother tongue. But in countries like Australia, Canada, English is widely spoken. So, the students feel uncomfortable with the fact of thinking about how they can communicate in that language.
However, to know fluent English is not the only criterion to get success. Once you get shortlisted means, you know how to speak, read or write. Fluency comes automatically when you will get the chance to practice it daily. The best you can do is to enrol in a course that helps to improve your language skill.
Generally, there is a tendency in Indian students that they want to settle for a course that is commonly available in India. They do not wish to take up an unusual path despite having the capability. But international universities offer a variety of courses in the same field, which is unusual as well as useful for career growth.
It may be possible that another similar course extensively covers the subject you want to pursue. So, we recommend you to search for the classes that suit you before jumping into conclusion. Also, once you have decided, try to give preferences to courses over the destination. Means if your dream college doesn’t offer you the specialisation, change the college, not the subject. Be flexible!
Many students have a misconception that it takes longer to complete the courses in an international school. But it depends on how serious you are about the course and the destination you select. If you can earn the required credits to be a graduate within the course, then there will be no delay in graduation. The graduation rates are higher for the students who study abroad compared to them who don’t.
It partly depends on the destination as well. For example, in the UK, it takes three years to complete a business course, whereas, in the US, it may take four years. Does that imply that you will be graduating late? We recommend you not to overlook the benefits of one extended year that is offered by a US university. That extra year is for gaining the professional experience before facing the real world of professionalism.
Of course, international records won’t matter to the employer if the candidate fails to prove his worth at the time of hiring. That’s partially true. However, it is also not deniable that a student’s international degree helps to create a first impression on an employer’s mind. They might not outrightly show their preference, but they may give you an edge over other candidates.
