How to choose a university?

What to give preference to? Study in your home country or prefer studying abroad? Opinions vary. First of all, each student should decide what level of diploma he needs. If a student does not have big plans after graduation, it will be more convenient, cheaper, and more practical to graduate from the university in his hometown, country. If a student is thinking about getting a certificate and an international diploma, he will have to go to one of the best universities in his country or continent.

Another important aspect to value when choosing the university is the language in which they will be taught. There are varieties of language complexity: ESL and ENL. The transcription shows that there are two levels of difficulty in learning and using the English language:

  • as a second language
  • as a native language.

Many non-English-speaking students will find it difficult to learn the intricacies of the English language, so this aspect is worth paying a lot of attention to.

Is it better to stay in your home country or go abroad?

Many successful people recommend prospective students to apply to a university abroad. There are many advantages:

How to mentally prepare for a stressful situation upon admission?

A new stage in life is always difficult and unusual. It is worthwhile for 2-3 months to positively tune ourselves to the fact that all the difficulties in our life make us stronger and smarter.

  • distance;
  • university rankings;
  • the difficulty of admission;
  • availability of paid or free housing;
  • budget for each month of study;
