Studying Abroad Right After 12th Is A Good Idea

If you are in a dilemma of whether to go for a US education now, right after class 12th, or to go there later to do your masters, allow us to bust the myth for you that going abroad is best suited to post grad students. Pursuing an education abroad, especially in the US has several unbeatable advantages for undergraduates. From well-rounded personality development to fantastic internship opportunities, the choice can prove enriching to your life in the long run.

Here go the top five advantages of studying in the US right after you finish school in India.

  • You Can Make a Better Career Choice

In American colleges and universities, you can study a variety of disciplines at work making interesting subject combinations that would be unthinkable in a more conventional education system. So instead of relying on education counsellors, your peers or your parents for a career choice, you can make your own choice after playing around with a variety of subjects that interest you. For this reason, going to study in the US right after 12th grade may be an even better decision than going there at a master’s level.

  • You Grow Up Faster than Your Peers and therefore Become More Employable

Going to a country so far from home and adjusting yourself to a completely new environment gives you an unmatched polish and maturity. With all the soft skills you learn through this, your potential to thrive in a professional environment shoots up and employers certainly do take this into account.

  • You Get Work Experience through Internships

Numerous internships and an overall real-world focussed curriculum is what make US education stand out from the rest. The entire system is designed in a way that you get exposure to the industry and the workspace at a very early stage. The three or four years of your college studies in the US can take you through a professional environment and such exciting projects that would be hard to come by back at home.

  • The Research Facilities in the US are Incomparable

America offers an impressive infrastructure for research and experimentation. The labs, tech-support and access to resources make it a favoured destination for those aspiring to derive powerful insights in their chosen field of study.

  • Admission is Dependent on More than Just Your Grades

While most undergrad schools in India take into account only your grades or an entrance test score to determine your eligibility to get admission, American universities weigh you on a wide variety of parameters to assess how well rounded an individual you are. So if the grading system has been unfair to you, you can always look up to a high quality education abroad.

At Kanan International, we work directly with over 150 US universities and can help you choose the right one. We guide you through admissions as well as visa applications. Moreover, we even help our students find accommodation in case a college campus is not an option for them.

Come to us the moment you make up your mind about going to college in the US and we will start preparing you for every part of the process. Our thoughtful professionals are always willing to guide you to the best of their abilities.

Statement of Purpose to Study Abroad - Kanan International

How To Write A Strong Statement Of Purpose (SOP) To Study Abroad – Kanan International

Statement of purpose is an essay which is often asked for by foreign universities. The word limit is usually of 1000 words. The main aim behind this statement of purpose is to understand why the student is choosing a particular course and what he or she hopes to achieve after studying it.

Benefits of Good SOP

A statement of purpose can be of various types. Some universities ask for a long essay whereas some ask for an essay based on questions. Whatever the type may be, a SOP must include the student’s future goals, his or her academic progress and the career path they have chosen for themselves. Other important things to include are personal motivations behind choosing the particular course and how the student chooses to utilize that education for achieving his or her goals.

A statement of purpose is a vital part of application to foreign universities. It should be tailored according to the course the student is taking. A statement of purpose written for a MSc course has to be different from a statement of purpose written for MS. Similarly, a SOP for Study in Canada should be different from a SOP for Study in USA.

Tips of Writing Statement of Purpose for study abroad

Personal and or financial background

Personal background is a must in the statement of purpose because it is one of the things universities are looking for. If a student has overcome all adversities and continued education despite all odds, then it should be included in the SOP. If a student has proved to be brilliant in studies in spite of financial difficulties, then that too should be included in the statement.

Personal failures

Most students wouldn’t even think of including this in the SOP. But it is in fact a must. The main purpose behind writing about one’s failures is to allow others to understand that the student has bounced back from all those failures.

Work experience

Not all courses ask for job experience. But it is a good idea to include the same in the SOP if the student has any. This can include part time jobs and even voluntary ones. Any job, even if it lasted for only a month, should be included because it was an experience after all.

Extra-curricular activities

This can include anything from participating in sports activities or in college debates. This will help the university with understanding whether the student is a team player and whether he or she has leadership qualities. Extra-curricular activities also highlight how determined the student is to achieve his or her goals.

Published articles or papers

This is extremely important for students who are applying for doctorate or masters programs. Be it a story submitted to a magazine or a research project, it should be included in the statement of purpose. This helps the university with understanding a student’s thought process.

Why we need SOP for Higher Studies

  • SOP helps universities with understanding the student’s decision to take the particular course.
  • This gives them an insight into the student’s academic life and other achievements

Living And Studying Abroad – Kanan International

So you’ve taken the momentous step of deciding to study abroad in Canada or the U.S. Congratulations! You can be sure that this is a decision that will be a positive turning point in your life.

Kanan International is here to help you with this, just as it has helped thousands of other students settle abroad successfully. So, form our experience, here are the most important things to keep in mind:

  • Organize your finances, so that you have a clear picture of what are the necessary expenses, as well as keeping extra for unexpected scenarios.

  • Ensure that all your documents for the visa processing and university documentation is in order so you don’t have to go hunting for them at the last minute.

  • Once you are settled in the country, an important but much overlooked step is to register yourself at the Indian Embassy. Here, you can get to meet others, participate or attend cultural events, talk to people when you are in any trouble, etc., which can be of great help in your stay in the country.

  • It is crucial that you get a bank account as soon as you are settled so that you can keep your money safer and more accessible.

Myths Debunked Pertaining To Studying Abroad

Myths Debunked – Pertaining To Studying Abroad

Although the number of students going abroad to study from India has increased exponentially in recent years, with the majority of students choosing the U.S. and Canada, people still have a lot of misgivings about sending their children abroad to study (youngsters too).  The fact is that these myths floating around pertaining to studying abroad, and specifically in these two countries, have to be debunked because it stands in the way of many students achieving their true potential. So here are the top myths and the truth about them:

  • Only those who have high academic scores can get admissions to universities in the U.S. and Canada: This is a myth because, unlike the Indian educational system that places a heavy emphasis on academics, universities abroad take a holistic, well-rounded approach to an applicant. They take into account their experiences in volunteering, their extracurricular activities and achievements, their philosophy in life, and choose students who will be a good fit for that particular university. So don’t let your low academic scores prevent you from at least applying to these colleges!

  • Studying Abroad is unsafe: The fact is that crime happens in any country, even India! In the U.S., universities take the security of their students very seriously. The law enforcement agencies are also very thorough about this. As far as Canada is concerned, it was ranked as one of the top 10 countries for peace by the Global Peace Index and is widely known for being multicultural and peaceful.

  • Canada is too cold and snowy all year round: Canada is a vast country and the climate varies from place to place. There are places where the summers are very pleasant and where it doesn’t snow in winters at all! So don’t let the fear of cold or snow stop you from studying in one of the world’s most scenic countries!

It is difficult to get a student visa: This would depend on how you go about the process. Kanan International has successfully helped thousands of Indian students get student visas in the U.S. and Canada. All you need is the right expert to help and you are through!
