Here are a few questions you might want answers for.

The period, June-July, is pretty much a very busy period for us at Come Study International. It is the season where process many visa applications. It is also a period where many high school students finish writing their final exams and start thinking of what’s next. The best time to plan is when you know you want to study abroad. Planning involves getting the necessary information about the process, potential study destinations and schools, cost, and deadlines.

There are numerous schools across the continent and for us at Come Study International, we work with quite a number of universities and institutions in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Dubai, Mauritius, Russia, and more. The good thing about working with professionals like us is that we are able to map what you are looking for to the right institution, and also help you narrow down your search so that you don’t stress yourself unnecessarily. We will be able to actually help you narrow down your search so you can find something that is suitable to fit your purpose.

The various entry points when it comes to studying abroad. You could be a junior high student who is looking to pursue a senior high programme, we have a lot of high schools abroad and a lot boarding schools, so this is possible. You could also be a high school graduate who’s looking to pursue an undergraduate degree, that is also possible. If you have a degree and you would want a second degree which is a master’s programme or another undergraduate degree, it is also possible. So, do you really need a degree to study abroad? No, you don’t. But it depends on what you have and what you are looking for and we would help you to navigate that.

Having a visa rejection should never be the reason why you cease to pursue your study abroad dreams. It depends on why your visa was rejected. If you didn’t meet the general requirement, it is something we can actually work on. However, if your rejection was based on the fact that you provided fraudulent documents or information, then, of course, your chances are very slim. These days with the universities we partner and work with, it is also a requirement that we do not only declare why your visa was refused, but we actually need to back it by evidence, documents, and so make sure you come as clean as possible right from the get-go.

Some countries actually have some posted work permit where you can actually apply for a work visa to remain in that country for about a year or two to work and gain some level of experience before leaving the country. There are some students who also after graduating decide to move out. Now remember you are not just coming down as the same person who leaves the country but you are coming with certain skill sets, a certain level of experience and exposure that is going to make you a high flyer on the market.

No, it doesn’t work like that. Remember that even before you arrive on campus, you ought to have proven to both your institution and embassy that you have the source of funding to support your programme. Besides, the main aim or the purpose of you travelling abroad to go and study – not to work. Plus, the type of work you will get to do is usually campus-based and it’s usually work that will only help you generate some money to pay for your bus passes or to buy lunches. Even if you have a work visa that allows you some level of work, it is restricted and you’ll need to ensure that you abide by the restriction.

When you are studying abroad, culture shocks are inevitable especially if it is a place, you have never been before. So, I mean, one thing that I would say is that keep an open mind. Yes, the weather can shock your system, things can test your faith and religion, the food, the culture, the people. The whole idea of studying abroad is so that, you can experience different people and different cultures and help you grow and be a better version of yourself.

Once the child is eighteen years old, they are an adult, and in some countries, there are privacy laws that protect information including their academic information. The university is therefore not obliged to release information about a child or student’s academic records and financial certain information to parents. The entire study abroad journey is a partnership. It is therefore crucial that parents and students maintain a healthy transparency, sharing your grades with your parents or talking about your academic difficulty is a good thing to do as your parents will be in a position to give you the needed support so that at the end of the day, they can celebrate your success.
