11 Oct Why pursue a Bachelor’s degree from abroad – Pro’s and Con’s
Students get confused on whether to go for a bachelor’s program overseas or to go for a master’s program. Choosing an overseas education program is an experience of a lifetime, but it can be considerably more rewarding if done at the right stage of your career. There are both pros and cons to both, and it is advisable to consider both sides before making any decision.
Pros of Pursuing a graduate degree from Abroad
Overseas admissions are more holistic.
In India admission to any reputed graduate is highly competitive and marks-oriented. It is very difficult to get admission to renowned universities even if you have been a bookworm all along.
However, universities abroad are quite diverse and focus on the overall development and deliver great quality education empowering you with a more skill-oriented education.
Overseas education is more application-based
Education system in foreign countries is more application and industry oriented. Summer projects and internships are an integrated part of the curriculum and give students a chance to learn from the experts and qualified professionals.
You gain a global perspective
Students who study abroad develop a well-informed mindset and wider perspective towards other cultures and people. You will form a multinational perspective that will help you face modern challenges and come up with innovative solutions in the future. You will graduate with a richer set of experiences that will allow you to think more creatively.
Cons of Pursuing a graduate degree from Abroad
The Language Barrier
You might face difficulties securing part-time work if you don’t have basic proficiency in the language. English is certainly an international tongue but will not help you while interacting with the locals.
You might experience homesickness
While adjusting with the new environment away from your family and friends, you might start questioning your decision and feel homesick somedays. Setting up a new life from scratch is as stressful as it is exciting. But the good thing about homesickness is that it’s temporary.
But, if you get an opportunity to complete bachelor’s by any twin city associated with an overseas education institute it’s always going to be beneficial as there will be very less chances of getting through the lengthy admission processes and prerequisite (IELTS, TOFEL etc).
