Living Abroad

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

Choose Your Destination

During their tenure, students tend to face several challenges in the process of adjusting and adapting to a new environment. As a student, you certainly require all the support that you can get and have to stay well prepared with your research even before you sign up.

Primarily, it is extremely important to identify your basic language requirements. Enroll into a language course to learn the dialect of the country that you are going to. Read programme descriptions of your university meticulously before you register and get all the details. Services and support vary considerably between programmes and languages, and that is why, experts at IEC Abroad will get you thoroughly acquainted with the description and requirements of the course, along with any other relevant details.Besides this, you should also be able to get accustomed to the new surroundings with the help of an on-site orientation provided by the educational institution.

While the classes in the school will help you learn your lessons, they will also provide you with general tips and information about the town or the city that you are living in.

Gather all the information that you can about living and studying in the host country. At IEC Abroad, we will alleviate all your doubts about the people, culture, and way of life, well before your departure. You can get more information about other students’ experiences from our study board advisers.

IEC Abroad’s study consultants will provide you with information about your accommodation, and pricing. Every detail is provided to you in advance, since on boarding arrangements might vary from programme to programme. We will also ensure that you get all the local support that you need when you arrive alone.Alternatively, if the institution does have a residential facility, our experts will liaise with the university for you.

Don’t forget to attend the orientation for international students at your university. You can also obtain a guidebook about the neighbourhoods, and various attractions of your destination.
