Now that you have made the decision to study abroad, feel confident about the same. Studying abroad helps improve your cross-cultural communication skills, develop the ability to adapt to challenging situations, gain international exposure and increase employability in future. But it all starts with being mindful of and following some simple processes. 

Take it from Mohammad Shahidul Islam Pranto from Bangladesh, who has been pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering. He shares, “It was a splendid experience with Study in India. First of all, the application procedure was quite easy due to the simple and precise website interface. The Study in India staff always provided important information by sending notices to students through different mediums. The SAT exam was fair and square. After the results, Study in India became a stable bridge between us - the students and the universities.” With his admission procedure completed smoothly, Mohammad feels grateful for this opportunity and hopes to enjoy thriving campus life in India, when the situations go back to normal.

Umutijima Shyaka Odette from Rwanda shares her experience of needing a full scholarship and nothing working out for her till she signed up with Study in India. “The Study in India team helped me with everything and solved every doubt I had regarding the processes. I secured the scholarship and started online classes that have been amazing and fun so far.”, says Umutijima.    Her advice is to trust the process and remain focused on achieving your goals. 

  1. Don't hesitate to ask for help 

Starting afresh in a completely new environment can be overwhelming. Hence, we suggest that you take the time to acquaint yourself with the resources available at your college. Do not feel that asking for help equates to failure. The faculty at our affiliate colleges are experienced and knowledgeable and building genuine relationships with them will help you receive a lot of guidance.

 Even Acquah James Freeman from Ghana has only positive things to say about his experience. “Study in India scholarship has the best and flexible mode of application which is free. I started my online tuition in October 2020. The lecturers and fellow students have a great sense of humour. With lectures always being on point, regular and punctual, the lecturers have full control over the courses they teach and they come down to the level of students to clear all doubts.” He counts himself privileged to be a student at a premier academic institute and highly recommends incoming students to work towards attaining a Study in India scholarship.
