Study Abroad FAQs

Am I eligible to study abroad?
There are a variety of admission requirements you may need to complete to begin studying as an international student. 

Depending on the degree of education you intend to pursue, the academic requirements (including evidence of English language skills) will differ. 

Some programmes, for example, will need you to complete a foundation course prior to enrolling for a degree. Because different universities and schools may have varying admissions standards, thoroughly review the course material on their websites. 

Our counsellors are available to help you choose the courses and locations that best suit your needs. 

How much will study abroad cost?
The cost of attending an overseas university or institution varies greatly. It depends on the nature of the programme, how long you plan to stay, how far you plan to travel, and what kind of lifestyle you enjoy when you arrive. 

You should be aware that some student visas require you to arrive in your chosen country with a specific amount of money in your bank account. It’s a good idea to look at the immigration sites for the countries where you wish to study or talk to one of our experts. 

To help pay for living and social expenses, many students work part-time in addition to their education. Earning in dollars and the minimum wage rate allow you to earn more money than you would in your native nation.

  • Evaluate your desired lifestyle and think whether you want to live in a massive metropolis or a peaceful country town. 
  • Would you rather study in a city where there are other students of your nationality or would you like to live beside a beach, in the woods, or in the desert that has a great view or are you thinking about living on campus.

The ability for students to work part-time while pursuing their studies differs by country.
