Every year, thousands of students travel abroad to pursue higher education from India. In fact, it has in a way become a trend in the bigger cities of India. However, more and more people from relatively smaller cities are also migrating abroad in pursuit of quality education and more than decent employment opportunities.
As a matter of fact, India sits at second spot (after China) on the list of countries, from where students travel abroad. More or less anywhere you travel in the world, there will definitely be Indian students. It has almost become part of the culture in this day and age, with all the modern travelling conveniences.
Also, a lot of students eventually come back and apply the knowledge that they have gained abroad, in India. They become part of start-ups and become an asset to our own land. With over 27 years of experience, Rudraksh Immigration Group in Mohali elaborates the things one must be prepared to do if he/she is planning to study abroad.
- Manage Finances
First and foremost, one must be able to plan well to manage their expenses. The majority of students travelling abroad for education take help of student loans and must know how expensive it will turn out to be to complete an entire course in any particular country.
The experienced staff at Rudraksh Immigration Group Mohali can help you plan every single thing from booking you flight tickets, tuition fee to monthly living expenses. If you are in contact with professionals who have been in the field for almost 3 decades, they can calculate everything down to the penny. You can surely benefit from their guidance.
- Work Part-time
A very common practice abroad is working any part time jobs to finance your expenses and maybe have some savings on the side. A lot of students actually send the money back home with high currency exchange rates. But the critical thing to note here is that one must be prepared to work anywhere and be flexible, in terms of time and the type of job. Common jobs include restaurant jobs, college library, production facilities, administrative work, inventory stores and supermarkets.
Everywhere you go, there will be a fixed minimum wage with which you can easily take some money out for your own hobbies. Also, working on the weekends or night-shifts attract a lot of bonuses on top of the regular salary. This is a good way to earn more by working less.
- Cultural Shock
We must have heard a lot about cultural shock, when people from outside visit India. It is the same for Indians travelling abroad as well. Everywhere you go in the world, there is a certain way of living there. Therefore, you will also feel that cultural shock when you land up in a foreign country.
You need to mentally prepare yourself and be open in your mindset. Then you will make new friends instantly and acclimatize yourselves with the way of the land which includes regional languages, culture, eating habits and climatic conditions.
Rudraksh Immigration Group Mohali will guide you through all this beforehand and this will prove to be absolute essential when you end up traveling and living in another country.
