University Selection


This is the most important task. Selecting a university involves consideration of multiple factors like student profile, family budget and location preference.

It is also important that we successfully find the PERFECT MATCH for each student in alignment with his future goals and career aspirations. We also put our students in touch with our alumni network to facilitate their research and help them in the selection and short listing process.

Cost of Study

Depending on the course fees, lifestyle & accommodation preferences, the cost of study abroad is a major factor while selecting the university.

Location and Weather

Weather and location are important selection criteria. Depending on the student’s preferences, the list of universities needs to be finalized.

Reputation Of The University

Selecting a university that is reputed and amongst the top universities abroad is a major selection criterion for every candidate.

Faculty/ Infrastructure

Selecting a university known for its faculty and infrastructure plays an important role in selection of your university as well.

Availability Of Course & Specialisation

Your preferred university might offer the course, however, you need to explore options like specification availabilities.

Student to Staff Ratio

When there is a lower student-to-teacher ratio, students will receive personalized attention from their teachers. Therefore, depending on the candidate’s preference, this affects the university selection process.

Prospects Of Further Education

Post completion of the undergraduate degree, many candidates look for further education options in the same location/ university. Hence, this option needs to be explored as well.

Funding/ Scholarship Options

Every course/ university offers different criteria and options for scholarships abroad. Therefore, selecting colleges that offer preferable funding options is necessary.

International Student Ratio

The international student ratio plays an important role as well. If the student is comfortable and wants to explore and communicate with students of different countries, the university selection differs accordingly.

Employment Opportunities

Every university and location offers different types of opportunities after completion of the program. Selecting the right university that fits the candidate’s requirements is the final goal.

Am I eligible to Study Abroad?

Eligibility requirements vary by university and program. Typically students must be at least sophomore or junior standing at the time of departure. The minimum cumulative GPA usually varies between 2.50 to 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, while more competitive programs have a higher GPA requirement. Other qualifications may include a personal statement or letter of recommendation. Consult your home university and/or program provider for specifics, and plan accordingly so you can meet all of the requirements by the time you want to study abroad.

A psychometric test is any activity or assessment that is conducted in order to evaluate a candidate’s performance and includes, but is not limited to, skills, knowledge, abilities, personality traits, attitudes, and job/academic potential.

Where can I find the Study Abroad Scholarship?

Study Abroad Scholarship scholarship can be found in many places. Then, you first need to choose the university and then you’ll find all the available scholarships. Sometimes the university will also list external scholarships, such as those offered by the government or business partners of the school. If not, you should research governmental schemes in your home country and your country of study, as well as funding offered by external organizations relating to your field of study.

After gaining a letter of acceptance, what do I do next?

Congratulations, you’re in! Now, all that’s left to do is to prepare for your studies, pack up your suitcase, get your travel documents in order, apply for your student visa, research your accommodation options, and look for funding.
