With UNESCO listing 16000 universities abroad, it could be quite a heck to decide the university you want to study in. more importantly, there are about dozens of courses, if not hundred in these universities. And hence deciding what to study could be even more of a trouble. But here I bring you the questions whose answers would help you decide the best for you.
1.You may have heard that quote, “listen to your heart, but take your head alongwith”. This is exactly what you need to do when choosing a university for you and more importantly the course for you. It might be possible that they both take you in different directions, but then the fact is that they both have valid points to be made. Start with something you are really passionate about and then take your head along it.
2.Honesty is the best policy. Although we rarely follow it, but this is the one thing that can actually help you. Studying a particular degree requires a lot of commitment and then studying abroad requires more of it. So, when choosing a course go for the one you want to do, and not the one you think you have to do.
3.Studying abroad is not just like any other degree you take and then regret later. It is more than that. Living in a land that is alien to you. You invest a lot of money. So, regretting all of it can be a heck of an issue for you. So, research well. Find out all about the course and the university. Make sure you really want to do it. Don’t doubt yourself, but then don’t be over confident either.
4.Figure out what is essential for you. May be you want to do your degree in Spanish. Or may be in a particular language. So just figure out what is the thing that matters to you.
5.When choosing universities, we usually go online or may be brochures of those universities. But there is a more effective way of doing things.

We often form opinions about people and act acccordingly. But before you act further, I ask you to know the truth.
We often say that the South Indian people of our country know English better than the rest of the people. The results of IELTS have although a different story to tell. In the international English language testing system, Bengalis, malyalis and tamilians and five other Indian language speaking people have been trounced.
We as Indians, often get worried about our culture. Sometimes even start blaming the English language for it. But the fact is that the importance of English cannot be underestimated if we want to connect to the world.
It is hoped that British Council’s analysis of the IELTS scores is a wakeup call for the schools where English is given a step-motherly treatment in India. With this result, we need to also bring our attention to the fact, that often things are not the way, they look like. Underestimating ourselves, thinking that others are better than us, often gives them the advantage they don’t even deserve.
So, anyone out there who thinks that we are ruining our culture running over English, it is time we stop restricting ourselves and start opening ourselves to the wealth of opportunities present outside the country. And then to those who think may be x or may be y is better than you because of whatever reasons you think, remember it doesn’t matter who you are, but what you want to do for your dreams.
So, leave the insecurities, work hard and live your dreams.
Is going abroad a dream for you? A wish you want to fulfil as soon as possible? Are you one of those who want to take IELTS and fulfil there dreams but are afraid of the vocabulary? Well, if you are one of those, here I bring to you some easy things to get a grasp of the IELTS vocabulary. Read more
AUSTRALIA. I guess the name is enough to bring your ears to what I am about to say. It is a dream destination for many who want to study abroad. And if you are one of them, I am sure you must be curious how do people live there, think there? What do Australians believe in? How will I adjust? Well, it is not like living with ISUS. Australians are as human as you are. May be in a different way.
So, before you land in Australia get your facts straight about it-:
FREEDOM MATTERS-: Australians place a high value on independence and personal choice. Your teacher for a course will never tell you what you should do. But rather will give you choices. It is then completely your decision. In short, no spoon feeding happens.
OPINIONS-: Australians believe in opinions. The teacher expects you to speak out your opinion on a particular topic and then a valid reason behind it.
EQUALITY-: Australians are uncomfortable with the status difference. You may find people younger to you calling you by your first name or vice versa.
BALANCE-: Australians believe in work, life balance. You might end up finding that the one that excels in your class is also the life of the party. So, if you want to gel up with them, don’t just study,participate in different activities as well.
PRIVACY MATTERS-: Their notion of privacy means that areas such as financial matters, appearance and relationships are only discussed with close friends. They may tell you if they want to but you are supposed not to ask them.
Remember, no one is weird, above or low. No one is better than another, we all are different. So, respect the difference, embrace their culture and fly high.
