Choosing the right course and institution that will suit your needs
ChooSinG the right education route that will determine your future can be a daunting task.
in such a situation, easy access to information can make a big difference. Bad decisions can be costly, in terms of time and money.
But with AusEd UniEd Group (AUG) Student Services, making that important decision will be a much simpler process.
the most common issues or problems most students face when deciding on their higher education route is the type of course, institution’s reputation, finance and destination.
Many tend to choose a great university in a beautiful country but pick a course that is not suitable.
thorough research is recommended to ensure that the programme offered is suitable to your needs. Look out for benefits, such as work placement schemes and industry contacts, that will develop your experience and skills and provide you with a strong head start when you graduate.
one of the ways to gauge a university’s reputation is via League tables, such as The Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the QS World University Rankings. Do note that rankings differ from year to year.
it is important to research not only the institution of your choice by rankings, but also the strength of the particular course you are planning to undertake.
the country you choose to study in will have an impact on your studies and student life experience.
twinning programmes allow you to complete a year or two locally before going to a partner university overseas to complete the degree.
Choosing to study abroad or even outstation will incur extra costs. Likewise, choosing to study in the city usually costs more than studying in a rural area.
tuition fees will vary based on the country. Some countries allow students to work part-time and earn some extra pocket money.
Australia allows students to work for 40 hours every fortnight, while Britain allows its students to work 20 hours per week.
in this case, drawing up a budget will help you to make an informed decision. But worry not. AUG Student Services is here to help.
