Studying at University Abroad

A university experience abroad is undoubtedly the dream of many students around the world. It offers unique experiences with high academic achievements, cultural enrichment, international networking, internship or job opportunities in your field, scholarships offered by universities and outstanding campus facilities. University education abroad enriches your existing knowledge by introducing you to new perspectives, new technologies and new ideas with the advanced opportunities it offers. 

In overseas university applications, students' CVs are one of the most important parts of their applications. It is very important for students to participate in social responsibility projects, sports and art activities to strengthen their university applications abroad. In addition, students' participation in certificate programs suitable for the department they want is a very important step both for resume development and for measuring the student's desire for the department they want to apply for. 

In addition to all these, it is very important for students to participate in the summer school programs of their dream universities abroad. In this way, students have the chance to get references from the instructors of the summer school program they attend, see the campus life and conditions and get used to university life.

In addition, the fact that students have done an internship in the department they want to apply for shows the universities how goal-oriented that student is.

Images, rankings and videos that can prove these achievements can also be requested by schools. 

How to Choose a University Abroad?

Many of our students who dream of studying abroad feel closer to a department or a country. Many factors such as the student's travel history, the educational background of family members, the success of the university or country in the field of interest, famous people they admire or a movie can affect students' preferences. Supporting the process of choosing a university abroad with coaching and identifying cities, universities and departments that suit the student's temperament increases the student's acceptance and educational success. Having detailed information about the countries and the opportunities offered after education, financial planning, detailed information about universities, summer schools or online courses from relevant universities will help you make the right university choice.

  • Department rankings and selection

It is important for candidates who want to study abroad to consider the overall world ranking of universities, as well as the departmental ranking of the field they want to apply for and the opportunities offered by the school for that department.

Although the world rankings change every year according to many different factors, in the US, the first place is usually between MIT and Harvard Universities.  While MIT ranks first in quantitative majors, Harvard comes out on top in verbal majors. Among UK universities, Oxford University ranks first in verbal majors, while Cambridge University ranks first in quantitative majors.

  • Academic Achievements

The academic achievements of universities are generally shaped around main factors such as the quality of scientific research, the ratio of the number of publications to the number of academic staff at the university, the employment rate of graduates, the international reputation and recognition, and the quality of education. World rankings of universities are based on these qualities. In addition to these, the budget allocated by the university for academic research, the contributions it makes and the awards it receives in this direction are also considered as indicators of academic success.

  • Collaborations with Brands

Universities cooperate with various national and international organizations in order to offer different opportunities in business life to students who need to do internships and those who will graduate. These partnerships improve students' performance both while they are studying at university and after graduation, and reduce their anxiety about the future. In addition, in some areas, these partnerships offer students the opportunity to turn their research into products.  At the same time, these collaborations offer these institutions and companies the opportunity to utilize the knowledge and facilities of the university in addition to its own potential.

  • International University Alumni Associations

The main purpose of university alumni associations is to create a lasting bond between alumni and to strengthen relations between them. These associations also aim to keep the alumni's connection with the school alive. Through the job postings published by the associations, alumni can be informed about suitable career opportunities and expand their networks and relationships. Many universities in the United States, Canada and Europe have alumni associations, allowing alumni from various countries to stay in touch even after their student years.

  • Coaching - Temperament & Career

Coaching is about unleashing people's potential to maximize their own performance. Rather than teaching students, the focus is on helping them to know how they learn and to find the right way to learn. The person receiving coaching develops new skills and behaviors to achieve the goals they set themselves, but not because they are told or taught to do so, but because they come from within and discover them with the encouragement of the work in the coaching process.

In the student coaching program, there are many issues in the student's life that are related to academic life, such as career determination, exam stress, motivation, the right study program, self-discipline, and balancing social life and studies.
