Prepare for a period of study MBBS in Abroad? We are sure that you are excited, but it is perfectly understandable if you are also nervous and perhaps somewhat worried, especially if it is the first time you are away from your family!
Here are some questions you should ask your study MBBS Abroad consultant, to help you prepare for this great change in your life and make the right decisions.
Which Stream Should I Pick?
Always choose a flow that interests you and that you are passionate about. Never make the mistake of choosing a topic in which you have obtained good grades, but do not like it. Your family can tell you to take Engineering because you got 100 in Mathematics in high school, but if you really hate Mathematics, and then you will not do well in the Engineering stream! Seek your talent and aptitude, and follow your own instincts.
What Length of Program Should I Choose?
You can choose a program that lasts for a year, a semester, a summer, or you can choose to complete the entire degree abroad, which could last for three or four years. Look at all the available options, before deciding. Short-term courses are also available. Remember, you must be prepared to devote so much time spent in a foreign country.
What Will The Financial Implications Be?
Once you have chosen your study abroad program, visit their website to verify the fee structure and living costs. If you discover that you can’t afford the costs, check scholarships and tuition waivers or work programs while you study. Your study MBBS Abroad counselor can guide you.
What are the Things I Must Do Before I Go?
Each university and country can have its own set of requirements that must be met before leaving. There may be a set of medical immunizations and health records to send. You may have to send your trademark transcripts. You must update your passport and apply for your visa. The university in which you have obtained admission will have to send you an offer before applying for the visa. Financial documents will be needed to show that you can pay for the course of study. The results of language tests will be required if English is not your primary language in your country of origin.
Can My Credits Be Transferred?
This is an important point that you should consult both with your native university and with the university in which you wish to study MBBS Abroad. In most cases, the credits will be transferable, but read the fine print and consult with both universities.
Is the Country Where I am Going Safe for Overseas Students?
Check with past and present students, and discover what their experiences have been regarding racism, assault or robbery, weather conditions and safety during the trip. Discover how the student scene is. Most of the medical universities in China for Indian students offer an environment that is inclusive and welcomes diversity, but reviews the actual conditions so you can be sure.
All of these questions, and more, can be best answered by a reputable student advisor who has the experience and connections to help you make the right decisions. Get in touch with someone who has the experience to guide you on the right path. Good luck with your study MBBS Abroad experience, and keep your fingers crossed!
