The Journey of Studying Aboard
The journey of studying abroad is one of a kind and we recommend students to not only gain knowledge from it but also make the best out of it. It’s now time for prepping up to take the plunge. Let us begin!
It is crucial that you and your child are on the same page when it comes to overseas education. The process is complicated as it is but lack or information or misguidance can turn this wonderful experience into a nightmare. We understand your concern, be it financial, safety, course recognition or university accreditation! That is why we have created a guide to help facilitate the process of your child pursuing studies abroad and how your role as a parent can ease that process.
Understanding the student’s decision
First thing’s first, it’s all about the dreams and Uma Education Services supports students to achieve their full potential. The role of a parent is extremely crucial when it comes to understanding this. Their dreams might be very different from the parent might have thought and the support comes in the form of understanding what your child is driving towards and only then a parent will be able to support their decision of studying abroad.

Transparency about the financial aspects
Studying abroad is nothing short of an investment and the cost of courses in different countries varies a lot. To have a solid plan and make the best out of the financial situation, parents need to talk about this openly with the student, so the decision can be made transparently and logically which can avoid many irregularities when it comes to the whole process.
Understanding the process yourself
Uma Education Services s Strongly feel and suggest that a parent should be as involved in the counseling and admission process as much as the child. Parents can make a more experienced decision and keeping yourself engaged and open to the information can help you make the right decision for your child. Following is a list of what can be ensured by staying engaged with the process.
Uma Education Services suggest taking the time to make an informed decision which is substantially important. We suggest starting the process at least 2-3 years prior so that it gives students enough time to make a decision. We suggest taking sufficient time to research about the course and the university they want to enroll with as that is the foremost requirement to move ahead.
The next step is the application process which is extensive, giving the students all the more reason to get informed and prepared about it. It is recommended for students to start creating their application 8-9 months before the admission window. This helps them reassess the application and improve upon it, to put the best foot forward. This should also be the time in your journey where you take the required exams to clear for eligibility.
Universities usually revert with their final decision in 3-4 months depending upon individual universities. If the student is accepted, then the VISA process is started and expected to take an approximate of 2-3 months. This is the preferred timeline to make a hassle-free application.
After The Move
This is the beginning of the students’ dream and we advise on taking up our recommendations to have a flawless and enjoyable experience.
It is always a good option to take up a part-time job to sustain daily needs. But this shouldn’t come at the expense of being harmful to the studies itself.
