What Do I Do to Study Abroad
Studying abroad may be an interesting adventure for some, while for others it might turn out to be a thing of discomfort because you would be stepping out of your comfort zone, but there are things you need to do if you must study abroad.
First is to choose right program. This is the most important step. You will have to decide what program is best for you. You have to make research on the program, the language spoken, the city (if it appeals to you) etc.
Once you have decided the kind of program you want to do, then you should take the required tests and get the scores before application deadline of program.
Then you have to summit or report the scores to the chosen program department or university as instructed on how to apply in the website.
After reporting of your test score to the school and also reporting of necessary documents/particulars then you make enquiries about student visa requirement and make sure to have a current passport and once you are done and satisfied with the requirements then apply for visa.
Then begin preparing yourself for what lies ahead which includes brushing up your language skills. Take a language class and practice speaking on it on your own. Also watch videos in the language to aid or speed up your learning process.
Prepare yourself for your new city (where you would be living). Read about the cities through books, internet, etc. Talk to people who lived in or studied in the city before, read up on the weather in your destination city, this would help in your choice of clothes.
Above all these, remember you chose to study in a foreign country because you are excited about its culture and customs and because you wanted to broaden your knowledge of the world.
Therefore, seize the opportunity to try something new.
