Students Seeking Education Abroad

You must be filled with confusions and bad dreams to the brim, frantically looking for good universities abroad to apply at – I’ll advise you to be patient because it is not easy to figure out everything in life in one go! Studying abroad is a wise decision that you have taken since it will bring out the best in you and shape you in a better way, but don’t belittle yourself thinking you haven’t done enough in life. You are young, and at times you must have felt – ‘how I wish everything stays the same forever’; your thoughts out of proportion. It is ok to make mistakes since that’s the best way to learn, and it is fine if you don’t get admit from your dream university because there are many other good institutions which have their doors open for you.
As an adviser I will always guide you and show you the right track; you can always meet me and have a chat with me regarding your study abroad plans. All I want from you is to be honest and tell me why you want to study abroad? If you have an ardent desire to pursue an international degree, I won’t think twice to help you. But before we meet, I would like to tell you a few things:
Do not take a hasty decision to study abroad; instead just think carefully about your choices. I’ll, always guide you and help you select the best universities.
Ask yourself what drives you to study abroad – ‘Is it because your parents want or you want? Or is it because you are influenced by your friends to study abroad?’ Your motto should be transparent.
Do not think that your chances of getting admits are high if you apply at several institutions because what matters most is your academic profile. Show me your academic profile and I’ll tell you what to do next.
The visa officer’s decision to accept or reject your visa has nothing to do with your self-esteem. Take the decision positively and improvise yourself; instead of cowering to face the interview second time.
It is not easy to leave your family and go abroad – it could be painful; learn to live with it. Once you leave your nest, you might find yourself immersed in the joy of exploring places and people
Learn to say ‘yes’ and welcome new things in your life; this will help you slowly find out what you like the most and best out of everything.
We are here to help you with several mock visa interviews so that next time when we meet, you should show me the stamp on your big ticket.

Wish you all the best and hope you learn how to adapt yourself out of your comfort zone, grow smarter each day and have the time of your life!

Tips & tricks for having an enjoyable and safe time abroad

Studying abroad is an experience that can satisfy twofold: it encourages a sense of wanderlust while still enabling you to receive an education—oftentimes providing much more than can be found inside the confines of a normal classroom. And while it’s exciting to imagine the possibilities of your trip, it’s also prudent to be prepared for what you don’t want to happen. Read on for tips to help you stay safe while studying abroad.

Be Well-versed in an Area and its Laws

Make sure to review the State Department’s information on specific countries, heeding travel warnings and familiarizing yourself with local laws. Register at the nearest Indian Embassy or Consulate (available 24 hours a day, seven days a week), note their address and phone number, and carry this info with you; in case of an emergency or crime, contact them immediately.

Stay Attentive and Informed

Research local customs, being aware of behavioral and social norms, and use discretion with dress and specific male-versus-female expectations. Understand and respect these cultural boundaries, but remember, never sacrifice your own safety to appease these differences.

Circumvent Unsafe Areas and People

Travel in groups or at least with a trusted buddy, or make same-sex friends in the community who are able to offer guidance on making wise choices within that region. Be aware of your surroundings and never get to the point when you’re too incapacitated to know what is going on around you. (Which ties into our next point…)

Avoid Being Vulnerable

Remain alert, keeping equal tabs on your friends and drinks at the bar. Leave important or showy jewelry at home. Wear a purse or wallet close to your body, especially while in large crowds. (The unsightly “fanny packs” of yesteryear are gone and have been replaced with the more streamlined money belts, which fit smoothly and discreetly under clothes, making it harder for foreign hands to pilfer.)

Use Long-standing Pointers That Work

As you may have heard at the airport or train station, never leave your baggage unattended or accept packages from strangers. Be wary of those asking too many questions or offering unsolicited help. Be confident when saying “no,” and, if needed, keep saying “no”—even at the cost of sounding like a broken record.

A Few Final Tips

All in all, avoid circumstances that put you in peril. Don’t reward aggressive behaviors with aggressive behavior—if you don’t feel right about something, keep your composure and remove yourself from that situation. Pay attention to any warning signals that may be going off in your head.
Once you’ve  acknowledged the world is an interesting yet capricious hodgepodge of cultures, you’ll find using common sense and your best judgment is often the best way to make studying abroad a fun, and, more importantly, safe experience.

MBBS at Private College in India vs MBBS from Abroad: Which is Better?

MBBS at Private College in India vs MBBS from Abroad: Which is Better?


Pursuing an MBBS degree and completing it is a prestigious thing in itself and is something that not all students are capable of achieving. After a student decides that he wishes to study medicine, one of the greatest dilemmas that he faces is whether to opt for a private college in his own nation or go abroad to attain the degree if his financial position so allows. The students who opt for government medical colleges stick to this category only, mainly because they are unable to afford the high fees that private colleges and medical colleges abroad charge. Let us compare MBBS at Private College in India vs MBBS from Abroad and see what each has to offer:

Quality of Education

No matter how good a private college you get enrolled into, if compared with western countries which are far more advanced and developed than India, you are bound to get superior quality of education in abroad countries no matter where you go. Boasting of top notch faculty combined with extensive practical training and advanced equipments and amenities, you just cannot go wrong when it comes to pursuing MBBS from a university abroad.

Price factor

Being a five and half-year course, completing an MBBS degree can prove to be quite expensive. Though private colleges in India are in no ways cheap, they can prove to be far more affordable than getting a degree in medicine in a foreign destination. India is a developing nation and offers a cheaper cost of living to its residents, especially the student class, even in metropolitan and big cities. No matter where you go, you will have to incur add on expenses such as lodging, food and commuting which are quite expensive in countries abroad. If you have a budget to work on, then India would be a better option for you.

Global Experience and Exposure

The global experience and exposure that abroad countries offer to Indian students makes all the difference. Staying in your native land, you will not get the kind of exposure and experience that you must gain during your college years. Such an experience will come to you automatically when you stay in a foreign land, meet new people and overcome new and difficult situations every day of your life.

Availability of seats

The huge population of India makes it quite difficult for students to secure a place for themselves in a private college as seats fill up fast and once the numbers are full, the colleges refuse to take on any more students. Even though there are a number of colleges in our nation, the ever growing population manages to outdo the availability of seats. When it comes to pursuing MBBS abroad, there are numerous countries to choose from and thousands of universities at a student’s disposal making it easy for him to choose the one that suits his own budget and requirements best.

Residence abroad

Most students, who pursue a MBBS degree abroad, take up jobs in the developed country itself, settle there and do not come back to their native land. Students consider this as a great opportunity as they get to reside in developed countries which are better than their own allowing them to earn more and lead a better life there.
So think about your future prospects, your budget and whether you wish to settle in your own country or abroad before deciding whether to pursue MBBS in a private college in India or abroad.
