Choos­ing the right course and in­sti­tu­tion that will suit your needs

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR EDUCATION FAIR 2013 -

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.
