Things students studying in 2020 should know


Nearly, every imaginable individual has been affected by the adversary brought upon in the name of COVID-19. Especially those students who are graduating in 2020 have been significantly affected. Although the future may seem dim at this given time, it is important that students keep a positive mindset and have a deterministic approach. It is important to not lose faith and emerge victorious in the battle against the COVID-19.

International students who are currently or considering pursuing education abroad are faced with concerns. Faced with a task at hand, international students have thousands of questions running through their minds. A significant part of these questions is related to jobs, internships, and visas.


The main reason a student decides to study abroad is to benefit from the illustrious job opportunities and stay back possibilities offered. However, due to the current scenario, there exists an air of uncertainty. Some popular study destinations are ensuring that they still present students with alluring job prospects. For instance, the USA is actively seeking work from home student interns to drive its business activities. Moreover, the Canadian government has taken an excellent step to incorporate flexibility in the post-graduation work permit rules for international students. Those students who are commencing their Fall 2020 courses online can complete 50% of their program offshore. This will have no detrimental effects on a student’s post-graduation permits. Furthermore, the 2 years stay back opportunity offered by Ireland continues to remain intact.


Notably, popular study destinations such as Australia and New Zealand have undertaken several steps to provide international students with internship opportunities. Part-time health care workers in New Zealand are permitted to work beyond the permitted 20 hours per week. Apart from this, even those students working at supermarkets can put in the extra hours. It is important to note, that this said phenomena will not have a negative impact on the visa status of the students. Moreover, individuals are pushing for this trend to continue in the future as well. Since a considerable number of students have lost their jobs due to the on-going pandemic, the Australian state government of Victoria is offering international students AU$1,100 to support them through these tiring times. Not only this, but students can also access their accumulated retirement savings to combat the pandemic.


Student looking to re-enter to study in USA need to have the following document:

·         Valid I-20 with a valid travel signature

·         A valid passport that must be valid for 6 months beyond your expected return to the U.S.

·         Valid F-1 U.S. visa stamp

·         Proof of funding or financial evidence

·         Autumn 2020 class schedule showing courses

·         SEVIS I-901 Fee Receipt

The government is granting visas to those outside Australia. This means, that when the borders are opened, those students with visas will be able to travel. Post-study work visas for students who are enrolled at universities in Australia will face relaxed entry requirements. Meaning, current as well as new students who are studying online due to the COVID-19, will have this duration counted towards their Australian Study Requirement. Those graduates affected by travel restrictions can apply for a Temporary Graduate Visa outside Australia. Students who held a student visa on or after 1 February 2020 and couldn’t complete their course within the validity due to COVID-19 will receive a waiver in the visa application fee.

October 20th onwards, those DLI's that have an approved COVID-19 plan, can welcome international students. Before students decide to travel, they need to ensure that their institution's plan was approved prior to their travel plans.

Therefore, it is important for the students to remember that there is light at the end of this tunnel.

Travel Tips for International Students


Leaving the comfort zone of your home country to experience the culture and seep in all the knowledge that is to offer at your study abroad destination can be a gruesome process. After going through the nerve-wracking process of university applications, the next hurdle study abroad applicants face is that of traveling to their destination. With the onset of the pandemic, traveling to your study destination has become all the more challenging.

Here are the latest updates on traveling to popular study abroad destinations:


October 20th onwards, those DLI’s that have an approved COVID-19 plan, can welcome international students.

The health of the world remains a top priority currently, thus international students will be permitted to travel to Australia when it is safe to do so. Universities in Australia are ensuring to offer all possible means of support to international students and thus, offer mental health and medical support, accommodation and food support, as well as the deferral of studies, payments and fees.

With these measures being brought into place for student visa Australia, students can expect a streamline of the process. As Australian education consultants, we urge our students that this is the perfect time to get their application in order, thus when the time is ready, they are ready to travel to Australia.


It is the responsibility of the international student to apply for the visa and to follow the necessary processes to study in Ireland. Upon arrival, students are asked to restrict their movements for a period of 14 days and are asked to fill a form to the same effect. Students must complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form and present it to an immigration officer at the point of entry.


With the majority of the universities in UK currently undertaking their classes online, students are urged to stay in a constant loop with their respective universities to be in tandem with the latest travel updates. Students are reassured that the admission criteria will be adjusted taking into account the current scenario to ensure that maximum benefit is allocated to students.

What is it like to study abroad?


If you are on the pathway to study abroad and often ponder over what it means to do so, you have come to the right place. The prospect of attaining your higher education abroad is so much more than the educational aspects it possesses. From receiving a quality education to interacting with international players, a study abroad program truly enhances your profile.


A significant number of students often deter from studying abroad in the misconception of the cost component attached to the same. However, the flip side of the coin is its economical nature. Universities abroad along with the government offer a variety of scholarships and other financial support avenues through which your endeavor abroad is affordable. While at first, it may take some time for you to adjust to having to manage your own budget, but with time things eventually fall into place. Moreover, certain study destinations such as the UK have their own student union which allows students to benefit from several discount facilities. Another instance is the Oyster Card facility that London possesses. This travel card has many economical perks that it offers to the students. Like these, other study destinations possess a plethora of financial support services for international students.


Another battle that a significant number of students face is that of feeling homesick. Being away from family and loved ones often take a toll on students. However, universities abroad have increasingly become receptive to the needs of the students and ensure that they include social activities as well. These activities and participation in social clubs ensure students that they have people to interact with. This helps them take their minds off loved ones back at home and at the same time enables students to engage in networking activities.

Know the Local Language

As a study abroad consultants, we reassure the students that while the programs may be conducted in English it becomes important that they are also well-versed with the local language. This helps the students in manifold ways. Firstly, not only will it be easier for them to assimilate into the local culture and understand what is happening around them, but will also make the locals more accepting. Moreover, having smooth communication makes a study abroad experience much more enhanced. Knowing a language certainly helps the resume thus, students are highly encouraged to go the extra mile and know the local language.


Another issue that students face is that upon reaching their destination and partaking in their program it dawns upon them that they are interested in another program. Certain study destinations such as the universities in USA ensure they incorporate flexibility in their approach. The flexible nature of the curriculum allows students to change their program of study or institution if they desire to do so.


As mentioned earlier, the prominent reason you have decided to embark upon the decision to study abroad is to attain education. However, the side perks that come alongside it are significant. One such perk is that of travelling. Students often during their time-off or during breaks visit nearby countries. This helps them not only disconnect from class and have a holistic experience but also meet new people. If students decide to study in any European country, they are often minutes away from a major tourist attraction that they can always decide to visit.

Augments your Career

Employers often actively seek students who have attained an international education. Therefore, studying abroad only adds to your skills. Since students have taken the decision to step out of their comfort zone and make attempts to enhance their skills, they automatically stand out from the competition. Moreover, with the increasingly globalized nature of the economy, companies often actively seek students who can bring in a breath of fresh air and an international perspective. As study abroad consultants we highly encourage our students to participate in networking activities. Interacting with faculty, alumni and peers helps goes a long way since it helps establish connections. These connections then come in handy when students seek a job. 

Now that you know what it is like to study abroad, it is natural to need a guiding light. We at Edwise can be just that and help you reach your study abroad goals. We now offer Live Free Virtual Counselling services, where you can interact with our expert counselors from the comfort of your homes.
