Why study abroad?
A good starting point before you work towards studying abroad is establishing why you want to study abroad. This can help you determine your destination country and university choices. Your reason might be as simple as you want the adventure and you want to experience life in another country, or you have a deep interest in a particular country, or you have always wanted to attend a particular university, or your chosen university has an excellent programme for your area of study. Be clear on what’s motivating you and if that leads you to a particular country or choice of universities, let that be your guide.
No matter where you choose and why, make sure the programme you’re taking meets your requirements and will give you the choices you want once your studies are completed.

What should I plan to do in terms of internships, academic contests and research projects before going abroad?
With increasing competition in international university applications, particularly those of high ranking, an applicant’s overall education background and experience outside classrooms have become major indicators which admission officers are paying attention to. As a result, internships at recognized organizations, awards won in academic contests and research projects at renowned institutes are increasingly important, and are deemed as key differentiators of applicants whose GPA are close. Our advisors will help students to plan and choose the right programs to join, and gradually build up his/her advantages for future applications.
