The decision to studying abroad is a tough one. You need to weigh the pros and cons of investing such a huge amount of money to finance your education. You should explore the career prospects in India and abroad after you earn a degree from a foreign university. Then after you get admission in one of the choicest universities, you need to put up with the student visa formalities and prepare for the travel. In all these matters, study abroad counsellors could help you a lot. We have given a few travel tips for you. Here we go!
1. Pack Small: Start preparing months before. First, make a checklist. Include the essentials into the list. You need to take care of the stationary goods. Many foreign colleges provide the books for your course (you have to pay for it). Hence, you need not have to carry them from your country.
The excellent library facilities available are capable of making lives easier for the foreign students. Keep a separate fund for paying the library fee. If you are migrating to a country with stark temperature difference, you need to pack a sufficient number of woollen garments and summer attires as well. True to our advice of packing small, it is also important not to miss out the essential things. Please remember that the cost of traveling is too much to bear every now and then.
2. Early Check-In: Long before you reach the airport, you could check-in online. You could also take a print-out of your boarding pass. These 2 easy steps will help you save money and time. Prior payment for luggage could save you from paying extra money for additional luggage. You could keep the boarding pass on your phone and let it be scanned during the security checking or reporting time.
3. Be Organized: Admission to a foreign educational institute often involves lots of documents. You should be very careful while you pack the original documents into your suitcase. We suggest a suitcase or a trolley bag to keep the original documents because keeping them in the backpack might crumble them up. You could laminate the original documents and enhance their longevity.
Keep a track of the photocopies of the original documents. It is always better to carry some extra numbers of photocopies with you because you could not expect your college to let you use their printers at the very beginning.
Becoming organized means you always have the inkling where to find the things you might need during traveling. You might as well prepare a checklist specifying the whereabouts of the things you are carrying in the luggage.
4. Be Patient: As you are traveling to get admission in a foreign institute and it is not something as interesting as going for a trip, the hours might look never-ending. To avoid this trouble, some centers for study abroad career counseling in Bangladesh suggest the students to choose a college in a neighboring country. The colleges in India, Nepal, China, Russia and Europe are offering excellent quality education to foreign students. The budget is within the range of affordability and the expense and time to visit the home country are low as well.
Prepare smart and make a good beginning. When you start well and maintain the form, success does not wait too long.
