7 Ways To Save Money Whilst Studying Abroad





Studying abroad provides you with valuable insight into the world. It not only enhances your survival skills, but also gives you the opportunity to experience a new culture. While an overseas education does not have to cost you a fortune, there are things you can do during your time overseas that will make your study abroad experience both affordable and worthwhile.

Mentioned below are several ways you can save money while Studying Abroad.

Avoid Frequent ATM Withdrawals

ATM withdrawals come with a transaction fee, and a great way of saving money is to look for a bank that doesn't charge you an ATM fee every time you make a withdrawal.




Save Money Whilst Studying Abroad

Make Use of Public Transportation

One way of saving money while Studying Abroad is by making use of the public transportation facilities that are available to you. Public transportation is a much more feasible option when studying abroad, avoid using taxis and opt for using the subway or the bus instead. Cycling is another fun way of traveling around; it gives you the chance to explore the city.

Cut Down On Your Calling Expenses

Using prepaid calling cards to get in touch with your family and friends back home can be expensive, especially when you are trying to cut down on expenses. There are several video and internet calling services that you can use that are not just cheaper, but also cost efficient.

Avoid Eating Out All The Time

Avoid eating at restaurants all the time; this will surely burn a hole into your pocket sooner than expected. Home cooked meals are nutritious and healthy, and will help you save money during your time abroad. Buying your groceries in bulk will keep you from making multiple trips to the grocery store and will also save on travel costs.

Don't Buy Things On Impulse

You may find yourself buying things you don't need. Avoid doing this, and only buy items that are an absolute requirement. Buying things on an impulse will leave you with a long bill by the end of the month.




Save Money Whilst Studying Abroad

Make Use Of Student Discounts

Your student ID comes with its share of benefits. There are certain privileges that you can enjoy by just being a student in a foreign country. Student IDs can earn you a discount while visiting certain tourist attractions, and can also gain you free access to museums. There are also discounts you can avail at libraries, restaurants and movie theatres.

Maintain A Budget And Stick To It

When studying abroad, ensure that you maintain a budget and keep to it, noting down your expenses for the entire month will help you keep track of your spending. Make budget cuts where you can and ensure that you keep aside some extra money incase of emergencies.

Why You Should Consider New Zealand As Your Study Destination


Whether you take up hiking or haka, you'll be sure to fall in love with the clean, green feel of student life in New Zealand.

New Zealand is a heaven for wildlife and adventure lovers, and also offers plenty for fun-loving city dwellers. This highly developed country remains rooted in the natural world, mixing cosmopolitanism with conservationism, and in an active yet easy-going society.

Recent years have seen New Zealand attract a growing number of students from around the world. There are now more than 110,000 international students in the country, and national agency Education New Zealand aims to increase this by more than 40,000 by 2025.

Those with a taste for outdoor adventure will certainly find plenty to explore. New Zealand is famed for its natural beauty and diverse landscapes, from lush green forests and lakes, to rocky roads, expensive beaches and awe-inspiring mountains. And what it lacks in human population, it more than makes up for in terms of varied and interesting wildlife.

The nation's culture is equally distinctive, strongly influenced both by its native Maori population and by its modern-day multicultural make-up. As well as having remarkably low crime rates, New Zealand ranks among the world's most peaceful nations, coming fourth in the Global Peace Index 2015.

Higher Education in New Zealand

With a strong emphasis on research and personal development, New Zealand offers a prospering higher education system. Tertiary qualifications run from certificate to doctorate level, progressing through diploma, bachelor's and master's programs along the way. Typically, a bachelors's degree will take three or four years to complete and a master's degree one or two years, while a PhD program can take upto two to four years. The option of a fast-track master's degree, which takes less than one calendar year to complete, is growing in availability and popularity.

As well as a selection of public and private universities, New Zealand also offers around 600 private training schools, for specialized foundation and diploma qualifications. Other options include studying at a ' Wananga' – Maori-led tertiary institutions unique to New Zealand- or at one of the 18 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs), which offer vocational degrees and diplomas.

The highest- ranked university in New Zealand in the QS World University Rankings 2015/16 is the University of Auckland, at 82nd in the world. Further seven New Zealand universities feature, with the University of Otago, University of Canterbury and Victoria University of Wellington all ranked among the world's top 300.

Applications & Visas

The process of applying to Study in New Zealand varies, with specific guidelines provided by each university. In most cases, you can submit your application online, but some institutions require hard copies of documents to be sent by post.

Generally, you will be asked to submit relevant academic documentation, providing proof of qualifications completed. While qualifications and credit transfers are widely accepted form New Zealand, Australian and UK institutions, some international qualifications must be assessed by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).

If you are not a native English speaker, you will be asked to provide proof of proficiency in English, by either submitting language test results (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS),or demonstrating that you've studied in English previously.

Student visas are required for all full-time students from outside of New Zealand or Australia who wish to study in the country for longer than three months. Part-time students should apply for a visitor visa. In order to apply for your Student Visa, you must submit the official application form (online or on paper) to Immigration New Zealand (INZ), along with proof of acceptance to an NZQA- approved university, a valid passport, proof of medical and travel insurance, evidence of sufficient funds to cover living costs (see below), a police certificate, a medical check (for certain students only) and a return flight ticket (or proof or sufficient funds for this).

Recent reforms to visa requirements have now made it easier for international students to work and pursue a master's by research or a PhD, students are also granted unlimited work rights. Others can work up to 20 hours per week during term-time, and full-time during official holidays, as long as their course meet certain criteria. Qualifying courses include programs lasting at least two years; approved tertiary exchanges of at least one year; qualifications which could lead to an application for a Skilled Migrant Visa; and certain full-time English language courses.

Post-Graduation Careers

If you wish to stay in New Zealand after graduation to seek work, you'll need to apply for a post-study work visa. This visa allows you to stay in the country for up to one year while searching for a job, with eligibility to apply for an additional visa of two to three years once you are hired.

You must apply for the visa within three months of completing your studies, or within six months for PhD graduates. To qualify, you'll need to have completed a qualification that meets the country's skilled migrant criteria.

Unemployment levels have fallen in recent years, reported at 5.8% in 2015. Areas in which skilled graduates are in immediate high demand include accountancy, construction, engineering, dentistry, oil and gas. There is also long-term demand anticipated for a range of medical professionals, veterinarians, ICT professionals, environmental research scientists, spatial scientists and statisticians.

Got Career Goals? Research Your MBA Program Options First


Everyone has career goals, but before you dive into an MBA program, here are some ideas and options to think about in advance.

As you know, getting an MBA can be really hard work, but the benefits of having this advanced degree will pay off in the long run, especially if you have specific career goals in mind. On average, those who get an MBA are better prepared to advance their career, meaning employers are more willing to put people with an MBA into management positions and higher-ranking roles. Likewise, those with MBAs tend to get paid more than those without, even when they have less work experience. And you are looking to start your own business or be an entrepreneur - an MBA is surely your first step.

MBA programs are hard work and can be expensive. So it is important to prepare in advance. This includes putting away money to pay for your degree, ensuring you will have enough time to set aside each day for studying while enrolled in the program, and studying in advance of applying to an MBA program to an MBA program so that you are sure to get accepted into the one you want. MBA programs have become increasing popular, so preparing at least a year in advance is advisable.

Your financial situation should weigh heavily on your decision as to when the right time to get an MBA will be, Online programs, for example, tend to be more flexible and cheaper, but they can also be considered less valuable than traditional programs in the eyes of certain employers. It all depends on what your career goals are after graduating. Ask your professional mentors for advice before making your final decision.

Study Well in Advance of Taking the Required Exams

Acquire a GMAT and/or GRE prep book and register for one or both f the tests. The program you want to get into will determine which test you should study for more. Some schools require one or the other, some schools may require both. Regardless of the test, plan on studying for four to six months before taking the actual test. These tests can be extremely difficult so you don't want to rush it. Sometimes simply learning strategies from us can greatly improve your score and help you understand core competencies.

Understand What It Means To Be a Successful MBA Candidate

You need to get to know yourself, both in your profession and outside of it. Truly understand what it means to be an effective leader and what you bring to the table that others might not. Prepare yourself mentally for a potentially stressful (but rewarding) two years if you are planning on opting for a two years, full-time MBA. Take some time out of your past and your future. There is no better way to prepare than to ensure you are mentally ready for the journey to success.

Choose Your Type of MBA Courses

Choosing the right MBA course depends on one's career goals. It is up to the students to find the right fit. They need to understand what best they should specialize in to take the next step towards their career choice.

5 Common Student Visa Questions


Pursuing a semester abroad requires you to obtain a student visa. However, before applying to a particular program, you need to ensure that the course that you're applying to meets the visa requirements of that country. Visa processing can take days to even a couple of months depending on the country you will be studying in, so it is important that you keep yourself updated with the average time that it could take.

Mentioned below are some of the most common queries that students have when applying for their visas.

How Do I Apply For A Student Visa?

The application process and requirements for a student visa varies, depending on the country you wish to apply to. There are certain documents that need to be submitted when you apply for your visa. However, before you begin with the process, you need to be accepted into a program first.

How Much Money Do I Need?

When applying for your student visa, it is important that you have sufficient funds to cover your study abroad expenses. When considering your options, ensure that you know what your program costs cover. Tuition and living costs will vary depending on the country and region you choose to live in. You will be required to provide records of your bank statement along with other details to show that you are able to pay for your overseas education.

Can I Work On My Student Visa?

Many students work on or off campus during their time overseas, however, they are only permitted to work once their course begins. As a student, you can work part time up to 20 hours per week and full time up to 40 hours per week during your summer break depending on the country you decide to study in.

How Long Can I Stay For?

When you enter on a student visa, you can stay as long as you are a full time student, which means that you can stay on till you have successfully completed your course.

Can I Travel After My Program If My Visa Has Expired?

Every country deals with this situation differently and some countries are strict about travel if your visa has expired. It is recommended that you consider your options carefully before you decide to travel with an expired visa.

Get a Head Start in Career



Here's a quick primer on how to narrow down on a particular institute offering various courses and programs

With a large number of new institutes springing up offering various programs, it may seem a Herculean task to narrow down on one for any particular course. Overall, there are several cumulative factors that make each institution stand out. However, a bit of online research and some amount of legwork can go a long way in making the right choice. After all, it is a question about long-term investment in a career.

Classifications

As per the rules of the government, institutes are divided into various classifications, based on the kind of education and courses offered. In India, universities are recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC). Apart from UGC, there are Professional Councils, which control various aspects of accreditation. Generally, universities and institutes are classified as Central Universities, State Universities, Deemed to be Universities, Private Universities and Autonomous Colleges.

Courses Offered

While undertaking a course or program, always follow interest and pursue what one likes. If a student has a specific career in mind, they may find that only a few institutions in an area offer an appropriate course. It may also happen that a number of institutions offer courses in a particular study area, however, only a few really excel in the field. While college will get over in three or four years but the course one does will stay forever. Ideally, it's always better to go for a program that doesn't restrict further options. If a student has an interest in more than one course, they should opt for a course that has a broader scope. The possibility of doing post-graduation in that subject is then higher, since fewer seats are available at the postgraduate level.

Teaching Techniques And Pedagogy

Teaching quality differs among institutions, and some will always be stronger in teaching certain fields than others. Feedback about teaching and experience of a student will always be subjective, but it is certainly an important thing to consider.

Up-to-date Facilities

Institutions will differ with respect to facilities offered such as state-of the-art campus, smart classrooms, labs and libraries. Essentially, one should also focus on the facilities on offer in the chosen field of education.

Student Services

The quantity and quality of student services differ between institutions and campuses, with campus size again being a major factor. Ensure that the institution has good-quality services that meet the needs, as they can make all the difference when one needs support. Look out for mentoring programs, academic assistance, career and counseling facilities.

International Exposure

Some amount of international experience always gives an edge. So, be sure to find out whether the institution offers international exchange and study tour opportunities or has an overseas campus.

The First-Hand Experience

Every institution has a different atmosphere. It is something that is difficult to define but could make or break your university experience, so be sure to take the time to visit the institution and ensure that it has a suitable atmosphere.

Campus Location

Many students opt for an institution that is convenient to their home, which narrows down the choices considerably.

Others are willing to move (or required to move) further afield to find an institution that offers their preferred course. If this is the case, one may prefer to study in a regional location over metropolitan, or vice versa. Another option is to choose a location that specializes in the field or has a better range of job opportunities.

Moreover, if one plans to move away from home, ensure you scope out the on-campus and off-campus accommodation options.

Institution Ratings

Every institution has its strengths and weaknesses, and institution ratings will give an unbiased idea of how the university performs in general, as well as in a particular field.

Study Mode

A student may find that each institution offers different study modes for a particular course. If one requires a part-time or distance education option, this may narrow down the shortlist of appropriate institutions considerably.

Cost Factor

The course fees may vary from institution to institution and course or program opted for. However, it is not just the course fees; there are other costs too like books, laptop, study trip expenses, just to list a few. So, factor in all these costs and then narrow down the search.

Word of Mouth

Speak to students who know the institution best and will answer all questions honestly: the students. Ask friends or acquaintances who attended the prospective institutions or ask the students firsthand at open day.
