Students who want to study abroad often have dreams that both excite and confuse them. Even though the American Dream is exciting in general, students who want to leave the country often don’t know which country to go to.
True, every country has a different set of options, and each one comes with a big bag of promises, like a better way of life, better job chances, and for a few, even the chance to move there and live there permanently. So, when we look at the world and all the countries that offer good deals…how to choose the best place to study abroad? Read on to find out the answers to the 5 questions you need to ask to choose the right country.
What do you plan to study in the first place?
No matter what kind of return on investment a student wants, the first thing they need to think about is the course they want to take. Even though most of the best colleges in different countries offer great chances, there is always one course that would be better in one country than in another.
For example, let’s look at the top classes that students want to take at universities abroad. A study found that more post-graduate students choose MS courses than MBA classes. Now, the USA has a lot of top-ranked universities and is still the most popular place to study abroad, but we can’t forget about countries like Germany and even Australia, which offer good education at a fraction of the cost (for Germany!). Also, if you want to learn French, France and Canada are the best places to study abroad for clear reasons.
So, we think the first thing a student should do is figure out which course to take. After that, go to t
What kind of business is the course you want to take based in the city or country you want to visit?
I’ve met a lot of students who care more about how well-known the college is than what kind of chances the area has to offer. It’s important to realize that the reason you want to go abroad is to change your lifestyle, which will come with a great job. Now, if that’s the case, how would take a course like aeronautical engineering in a place with no business help?
Industrial training is a part of every program. No matter what level you are at—undergraduate, postgraduate, or research—there are top companies that hire the best. Even though the best companies hire the best people, they also often hire interns and have special training at local schools.
So, once you’ve decided on the course you want to take, we strongly suggest that you look at the towns that the universities or institutes are close to and what kinds of industries are common in that area. It should be as close as possible to the big names in your chosen field. This would not only help you get a better job after you finish the course, but it would also help you fit in with the society of the area, which would help you do a better job.
How much money do you get back?
Students often make the mistake of calculating costs, like fees and living expenses, when they should be thinking about the return on their investment.
Simply put, a return on investment is the expected income after the course divided by the cost of getting the schooling needed. To explain further, the cost of getting an MBA is much higher, but the return on investment is even higher. But the student should think about doing the same thing for different places.
One way to do this is to look into the country’s job and salary statistics based on the business. Most of the time, the right statistics are easy to find for people who know what to look for. So, before you choose a country, you should also find out what kind of pay you can expect from the job you want to get after you finish school. Unless your goals are purely academic, you should figure out how much money you can expect. If the goals are academic, you can still figure out a return on investment by finding out what kind of research facilities are in the country you want to visit and if the university has any ties to research sites in the area.
How much is that degree worth in India?
The worth of the country’s degree in India is the last thing a student should think about, but it could also be the first thing.
We can’t ignore the worst case scenario and the chance that you might have to go back to India if nothing goes as planned. If a student in India doesn’t check the legitimacy of the degree they want to get, they could end up with a huge student loan, no useful work experience, and a degree that doesn’t help their future. This is very important for people who want to study business, medicine, or even law. These things tend to vary from country to country, so it’s important to choose a country that gives acceptable degrees so you always have a backup plan. Even if you have a degree that is more common, like an MBA, you should still check the value of that MBA.
