How Do You Manage Your International Payments

http://edwiseinternational.com


December 2017


The very first question that comes to each mind when thinking of perusing International Degrees is 'How to manage the payments'. Sometimes it can be expensive being an international student. It’s often really difficult to stick to the budgets, because there are so much to do in the foreign land. However, it is always advisable to maintain a budget, as it always helps you not to overspend.

Here are few tips which will make your life easy in a foreign land without overspending:-

Draw a Rough Budget

Saying so, it means that you should have a rough idea about your daily, weekly or monthly expenses. If you have a budget planned, it always helps you in all the possible was not to spend more. Drawing a rough budget also helps you in channelizing your expenditures.

Considering Personal Situation

When it comes to the expenses which includes your study cost, projects and experiments and your other expenditure, always make sure that you look into your personal situation. As there are a lot to do in a foreign land, this sometimes misguide you to do things which are way different from your personal situation, as hence this forces you to overspend not keeping in mind about your situation.

Part Time Work

It’s always profitable doing part-time jobs to cater your educational expenses. Grab the opportunities which are provided to do some kind of part-time jobs as it helps in building your experience as well as adds to manage your expenses. There are plenty of opportunities for students to work during their studies. Income from working part-time should not affect your entitlement to loans and bursaries.

Making Choices

Sometimes making a right choice also matters. As when you are in a foreign land, usually, there are few things which fantasize you. You often start taking things personally without looking into your current state. Make a wise choice of your daily expenses, look out for things which are pocket friendly, start cooking yourself that saves most of your money from eating out, look for budget friendly calling rates as you have to make international calls as phone bills can also be a sizeable item, ask for notes from the professors as they keep the records of good notes saving your expenditures for buying new books. Making a choice in a strange land is always beneficial.

Living Costs

This is the vital expenditure. Living costs include accommodation, food, and travel. We suggest try not to be tempted by offers such as 'two for the price of one,' especially when you didn't want one in the first place. Use local markets for groceries, charity shops for clothes, and students' unions for stationary. If living with others, share essentials and buy in bulk if possible .Take time to look at different options, as there may be something cheaper available.
 
Study Cost

These are costs associated with your degree such as books, equipment, or certain fieldwork or electives. You may be able to received extra money for study costs. Library plays an important role at your university and look for second-hand book sales from your students' union or online bookshops. Sometimes fellow students are willing to share.

Channelize Your Payments

Coming down to the payments for the international students could be one big task. One often faces the dilemma of how to pay the fees and other expenses considering the factors like currency exchange charges, safety etc. Usually there are few financial institution who plays a vital role in the transferring your money like western union, fly wires etc. These institutions are closely associated with the universities to help out with any kind of financial situations. It’s always advisable to transfer the money through this financial institution as it makes your international payments feasible.

Other Expenses

Often students get bored with their academic life and hence look for a sneak pick out of the regular schedule and for refreshments. You will have other interests you may wish to pursue that come at a cost. Your students' union generally offers a selection of shops, places to eat and drink and other services at minimal expense. The social scene – whether it is the cinema, nightclub, eating or drinking out– can be a significant cost. Keep an eye out for student discounts and offers. University isn't all about work.

New to College? Do's & Dont's




November 2017

For many college students, achieving academic success in college is quite different than academic success in high school.

Even the best high school students, often arrives to the college unprepared for the rigors of their college curriculum. They face a much faster pace, multiple deadlines, more assignments and much more reading in the college than in high school. In fact, many studies show that most high school graduates are simply not prepared for college and once in college, many are not prepared to succeed.

To help students with this growing problems, below mentioned are the few tips for Do's and Don'ts for the freshmen in the college.
  • DO buy a planner and develop the habit of keeping a track of your homeworks, assignments, projects, journals etc. Maintaining a planner can also help you in keeping a track of your progress over the time.

  • DON'T be a fresher who does not attain the classroom lectures. It is frequently found that freshman instead going for their classes often found enjoying the campus life. Never skip your lectures as being the fresher it’s the only opportunity to be known.

  • DO find a harmony between your academic and personal development. It’s only in the college campus, where one has the golden option to blossom in both the sphere i.e. Personal and Academic. Do get involved in the extra curriculum activities such as the debates, elocutions, sports events and so on.

  • DON'T compare yourself with others. Every human being is different in their own manner. Don't compare your academics with others rather reach out to the professors for help, as few professors do keep the old notes and assignment for reference.

  • DO live healthy. Saying so, living a healthy lifestyle helps one to be more active compared to others. Develop a habit of cooking self that will spare you from all the unhygienic fast food stuff, which are very famous amongst the students. This in return helps you not to be prone to Obesity.

  • DON'T panic. There would be various situations where you are going to feel abundant or lost, trust yourself instead of getting panic. You are in college now, which means you are an Adult. So, ask for help. There will be situations herein you will feel left alone, don't restrict yourself rather take a step ahead and approach, as because, its always advisable to make contacts with the locals to have a peaceful campus life. But, be aware of your surrounding i.e. the positives and the negatives.

8 Signs That Make an Overseas Study Program Worthy


http://edwiseinternational.com


November 2017

Studying abroad is surely a roller-coaster ride and one needs to be well informed about all the aspects in order to enjoy the ride to the core. The most important of them all is to have an in-depth knowledge about the course that you are willing to take up. As an international student immigrant, your institution and the course you are taking up plays a major role in making the journey worthwhile.
Here are some key factors that would help you choose the best study-abroad program, so that you can put your best foot forward and take a plunge to the whole new world:

1. SPECIALIZATION

Each university has a diverse curriculum and therefore, it is really important for you to compare the course contents of different institutions before finalizing the best suited one for you. Like if you are interested in Business, look around for the various types of business programs offered by various universities. Take into account the subjects of the course and then decide on a specific course.

2. SUPPORT FROM THE FACULTY

As an international student, you will need assistance every now and then to adapt to the new environment inside and outside the classroom. Support from the faculty can really help you to cope up with your issues and adjust well in the host country.

3. VALUE FOR MONEY

Studying abroad surely involves huge amount of investment and the budget varies from country to country. So a good course must be worth the amount that you are spending on it and the degree must help you earn a good return on the investment that you are making by offering you quality education and provide you platform to explore your capabilities.

4. ASSORTMENT OF STUDENTS

Your peers do have a strong impact on promoting your overall development. Therefore, a successful study abroad program must give you an opportunity to interact with people hailing from diverse horizons, which will expose you to varied culture and mindsets and give you an opportunity to not only grow as an effective professional, but also as a refined individual.

5. CREDITS

Overseas study is a lot more than about just acquiring education. A good degree should not only equip you with valuable skills and knowledge, but should also help you earn worthy credits that will help you in the future.

6. FOCUS ON PRACTICAL SKILLS

In today’s dynamic world, practical knowledge plays a vital role in helping you grab the best opportunities on the professional front. Employers give more preference to the candidates who know how to put the gained knowledge into action. Therefore, a blend of practical as well theoretical knowledge makes up a perfect study program.

7. CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Activities outside the classroom are as important as the ones inside it. Your study program should not just keep you limited to the world of books, but should also offer you equal opportunities to actively take part in various co-curricular activities such as those related to sports, quizzes, cultural programs, etc.

8. HANDS ON EXPERIENCE

A person decides to travel abroad for his higher education with a hope to gain international exposure. Therefore, the institution that you intend to study in should offer you an opportunity to earn hands-on experience. An internship as part of the course will help you understand the global market and provide you a platform to hone your professional skills.
