What to pack?
Being fully prepared & packed will save you a lot of time and make things less fussy for you when you are in your new country. That is why we have a ready checklist which you can refer and mark check on before you leave India.
Arrival in a new country
Now that you've arrived in the new country, we have separate sessions to guide you about the immigration checks, customs control and how to get to your campus from the airport conveniently. It can be exciting and challenging to arrive in a new country. You must contact your host university's Exchange Officer as early as possible, as they can help you adapt to living and learning in your new setting. They'll support you throughout your visit and stay, too.
Banking and foreign exchange
Opening up a bank account would be one of the first items on your to-do list as you settle in your new country for your education. Getting a local bank account would make it easier for you to access the funds and compensate for rent, school fees and living expenses. It will also allow your manager to transfer the salary if you wish to work after studies. We will be guiding you with the moves you need to make to get your finances going.
Insights into the local culture
Before arrival in your new country, it'll be really helpful to have some background research and understanding of the local community and customs. It supports integration into the group and can help you connect more efficiently with your classmates. The fun part of travelling overseas to study is getting to know about stuff people do differently from other cultures. We're going to tell you all about the culture, the activities, the local life and even some basic frequently used conversation terms that will be handy for you.
Student life in your new country
When you study abroad, you may need to fine-tune to a different learning atmosphere along with being accustomed to new cultural norms. Our workshops will help you on learning patterns, behaviors and aspirations of a student in a foreign classroom.
Cultural shock is normal as you step into a society which is different from yours. As it plays a significant role in transforming you to your study country, we organise sessions that address the various phases of disappointment, transition and acceptance. We would also guide you with some simple techniques on how to recognise if you are undergoing culture shock and how to deal with it.
Support and well-being in your new country
Be it an academic help, English language assistance or visa guidance, in our pre-departure support sessions, and we discuss some of the realistic help that international students should receive.
Internships & Earning while you study
Part-time jobs can help to complement your experience of studying and living. Our sessions will help you explore how to live under the student visa guidelines and help you find a proper job which doesn't affect your studies as well as your pocket.
