Moving abroad to a new country can be both adventurous and overwhelming

Studying abroad is a big decision that involves a lot of investment in terms of time, ener-gy and finance. Not all study abroad programmes are created equal. To hasten your decision-making and to obtain comprehensive guidance as to how to study abroad, reach out to experts at IEC Abroad for a consultation.

Primarily, students should be able to choose a programme within the university of their choice to initiate the study abroad process. If you are unsure about the path you should take, speak to us for more information.

There are certain entry requirements for studying abroad. These vary between countries and universities. In general, you have to produce your academic standing, study abroad readiness, and if you are planning on a major, as well. Depending upon your field of in-terest, if you are applying for an undergraduate degree, then you should have complet-ed your secondary education. Contact our experts at IEC Abroad, if you already possess an international qualification and are unsure about procedures.

The duration of your study abroad programme is dependent on the level of degree you are planning to undertake. A full-time study programme will take at least 4 years, or an undergraduate degree will take you at least three years, in the UK. There are shorter courses available, as well.

Definitely, students planning to study abroad must have clarity about their goals and ob-jectives before applying to overseas universities. Ask for help. Our experts at IEC Abroad are always willing to assist you.

While the application process might vary between countries and universities, here are the basic requirements for applying to an educational institution abroad:

To study abroad you have to be older than at least 13 years of age. High school ex-change programmes usually look for at least 15 years of age.

During a particular year, each overseas college or university has intakes. While some of them may have only one rolling intake, others have two or three intakes in a year. It is best to initiate the application process a year in advance.

Generally, the material required by the university is referred to as an application pack-age. It primarily contains the application form, a recommendation letter, mark sheets, transcripts, information about financial aid and relevant essays.

Before applying familiarise yourself with UCAS deadlines. Courses and universities have different deadlines and can impact your application if you miss them.

You can always reattempt and apply for a suitable programme that matches your pro-file, if an institution of your choice rejects your application. You may also attach support-ing documents to prove your eligibility.

Entry requirements for each university may vary. Generally, your academic qualifications, Visa, English language tests, work experience and other associated criteria are required. Check with IEC Abroad’s expert overseas counsellors for guidance.

If a student does not possess formal qualifications for undergraduate studies, you can undertake a Foundation course, for one academic year.
If you possess relevant work experience and do not possess any formal gradation for a post graduate degree, then enrol into the Postgraduate Certificate Programme and claim your admission to the postgraduate diploma and subsequently, a master’s de-gree.

Even if you possess below average grades, there are chances that you can secure an admission in a foreign university. Check with counsellors at IEC Abroad for a second chance.
