"The options for university destinations today have amazingly increased, creating a world of quality learning and opportunity in multiple parts of the world. However, figuring out a list of universities and destinations can be a confusing process. We help you keep the following in mind throughout the process: > Insight: Your interests, your story. > Family and friends choice or is it your choice? Are your reasons for applying to universities based on your interests or family expectations, family university legacy, your aunt and uncle’s advice or following your friends? > Looking at national universities vs. universities abroad: National destinations vs. Destinations abroad- have you considered all your options? > Different Application Processes Around The World: Did you know there are multiple platforms that you might need to apply to some countries and universities and kick start the application process? > Financial Options: Learn the difference between Scholarships, Financial Aid, Work Study, On Campus and Off Campus earnings and multiple ways to think about funding options. Different countries have different rules and tuition pricing for international students. > Passports vs. Open Borders: Some countries offer scholarships and a reduction in tuition fees based on relationships with certain passport holders from other countries. This can be a great advantage for several students who want an affordable and different country to pursue a university degree in. > Internship Opportunities: While many countries have internship opportunities, some universities have options of finding internships and placements built into a degree program. > Career Opportunities: Some countries have easier work opportunities than others and it is important to be fully informed of the benefits and challenges with different countries and changing policies. > Ranking vs. Being Informed: Ranking can often be a determining factor for a student on what is considered a ‘good university’. But all ranked universities are not the best fit for a student and not all ranked universities have the best programs or are in the best location > Creating a university list in one or multiple destinations: Once you have all the above in mind, it’s easier to make a list that encompasses all the options for a university education, making it exciting to be at any of the universities you have on your list!
