You're making one of the bravest decisions of your life, and yes, it's the most important one for your child.With an international education, your child has access to world-class faculties and an education of the highest standard. Your child's decision should be supported by you as a parent. Prepare to take part in this exciting journey.

What you need to do as a parent?
Your child's motivation should be understood. Parenting is all about supporting your children and ensuring they make the right decisions.

1.Establish goals in an open discussion
Understanding the reason for your child's desire to travel abroad - whether it is career-related or for personal reasons - is key. Knowing what your child seeks in life will help you guide and support them.

2. Stay informed
Participate in research related to courses they are interested in, universities they have been talking about, and the lifestyle that would suit them most. Besides examining course content and campus life, we also plan to look into accommodations in foreign countries.

3. Consider your challenges
Get in touch with families and friends whose children have traveled abroad. Find out what challenges you are likely to face and how you can deal with them. As a thumb rule, "be as specific as you can" and ask all your questions.

4. Seek professional assistance
Student access to international education has been made possible by AdmitCart. We would be glad to answer any questions you might have.

5. Calculate your budget before you begin
Making an informed decision about your child's education can be easier if you have an estimate of the costs involved. Include additional expenses like food, housing, health insurance, communications and travel.
We have prepared this guide to help you budget for your child's overseas stay.

6. Develop a detailed plan
After learning what it takes to send your child abroad, begin to plan. Take into account all factors, including the university and course choice, finances, and visa conditions. As you decide where your child will study and what courses they will take, keep these parameters in mind.

7. Health should always come first
Make sure to have your child go through a physical examination, dental exam, and gynaecological exam (if necessary). Be sure they are up-to-date on all shots and boosters if needed.

8.Safety during travel is paramount
Sending your child thousands of kilometres away can be stressful, which is why it is crucial to ensure their travel safety. Make sure your child is insured before they leave and sign up for a safety program.

9. Schedule your visits
Talk to your child about visiting them abroad once they have settled overseas. The time you spend with them will be valuable in terms of providing them with the emotional support they need while adjusting to a new culture.

10. Keep in touch
The difficulty of settling in a new country can lead to a sense of isolation, making it crucial to keep in contact with your child. Before they can settle in properly, they'll need both your emotional support and your guidance.
