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. With thousands of Indian students weaving spectacular success stories out of their studies abroad, there is no doubt that you too will add your story to this long line of testimonials. Canada and the U.S., especially, are countries that are very warm and friendly, greeting international students with an open heart.
However, there are still a few things to keep in mind before going on the most important adventure of your life-that of living and studying abroad. 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:
Although you can get all the info you need about your destination country from us, it is still advisable to do your own research and get to know all about the country and the specific state and city that you are going to be staying in. This would include getting information about the weather (so you know what kind of clothes to buy or pack), whether there is an Indian population there (so if you get homesick, you can still find someone to talk to or shop around in an Indian store!), what are landmarks, places of interest, etc. Getting to know more about the place will help to dispel any nervousness you may have (which is only natural).
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.
