Every student will have a dream to get settled in USA or any other foreign country. And many wish to study in abroad. But, before that the important thing is, you should first prepare your mind for some of the facts which you are not aware of!!
You need to choose two streams which are quite different so as to gain credits which are important in academics as well as to expose in different fields to get experience. You will have to choose a main course in your college based on your career and interest and the other one should be more like a certificate course. For example, Computer science or Technology as main stream and singing or art can be your second track.
2. PREPARE FOR HUGE EXPENSES!!
Most of you know that the education in abroad is always very expensive when compared to our country. Your cup of tea in our country and in abroad are same, but the cost of that cup of tea highly varies. At the same time, the cost also varies from place to place. So, be prepared for more than you think that you need to spend on your education in abroad.
3. CLIMATE CHANGE
You will observe complete change in the climate. Almost all the parts of Europe and eastern part of USA are darker and will be rainy through out winter. But the best thing is that you can enjoy the end winter with Christmas celebrations. You should get prepared for cold weather and select the best hostel with room heaters as we are not used to that much cold.
4. CHOOSING YOUR COURSE
You are the only one who ones you the best. Don’t depend on your friends or family and blindly get into a course which you are not aware of. Because, hook or crook you have to complete it and will be waste of time and money you spent on it if you want to change it in the middle. So, be more choosy and particular about your courses. And the one who can help you with this is only the counselors. Better get help from them and pave the way for your future.
5. MAINTAINING HEALTHY RELATION WITH PROFESSORS…
Professors over there are so friendly that they help you in many ways, some may even help you in your personal problems. All of this depends on your relationship with them. The stronger you build, the more care and subject you get. Talk to them openly, ask all your doubts and try to be more active and attentive towards them.
6. MISSING YOUR INDIAN THALI- THE MOST PAINFUL..!!
I am sure that you may find Indian restaurants with our recipes but I bet you are not gonna find the same taste. And mostly vegetarians find it more difficult because they find all salads more than what non-vegetarians get. So, “Vegetarians” be prepared for this also.
7. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE GONE FOR PHYSICAL..
Get a complete physical analysis report before going to abroad. Meet your doctor tell them and make sure that you perfectly alright, so that no further objections will raise. As they are always needed when you get into some other country. But if you can get them before itself it will be helpful for you in emergency. And try to have vaccination as recommended by your doctor.
8. HAVE EMERGENCY NUMBERS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
First thing you do after going is to find out the nearest embassy around your place and pendown or store it in handy so that when you are in trouble it will be easy for you have help. Because , there will be 24/7 service in embassy.
9. DO NOT STEP OUT OF RULES!!
Know what to do, what not to do. Never go for things that gets you in trouble. Because, things that are not strict in our country may be very crook to them. So, respect them and follow them. Always have your passport in handy in case of emergency because that is your main identity.
At last, know that everything will not be done as we plan. Some things may be out of line and some things may not even be near to it. But better to know how much you can prior going to abroad for education. And not but not least, never forget our country. Our motherland. Our India.
All the best.
