Here's how you can find the right course for you:
Discover your strengths and interests
Identify the skills and interests you possess, and spend some time reflecting on them.You should emphasise potential career options and eliminate options that have no intention of becoming a career. With a shortened, more focused list, you can determine which courses are right for you.
Accounting or economics courses are excellent options if you have a knack for numbers. Similarly, if your interests lie in the healthcare sector, you may consider physical therapy, nursing, or pathology.

Conduct extensive research For a successful study abroad experience, you should make a well-informed decision. Explore the opportunities available to you by using our course search.
After you've selected a career, look at the qualifications needed to pursue it. Have you got them all? If you do not meet the requirements, would you like to wait for another intake or switch your stream - think about this carefully. We can assist here, as this is a tricky decision.

A counsellor from AdmitCart will help you develop a shortlist and look at courses and subject options in detail.

What is your preferred method of studying?
While it might seem like a minor issue, it matters a great deal. Finding a teaching method that works best for you is important. Writing long assignments all through the year or training hands-on suits you better? You can also narrow down your options by looking for colleges offering the course you're interested in across multiple destinations.

Is the course affordable?
The cost of a course and how much you can afford to spend on your education play a vital role in the decision of where to study and what to study. Discover if there are any government and institute scholarships available for your course. You can significantly reduce the cost of your studies if you're able to secure one.
You will also be able to speak with an AdmitCart counsellor about the practicalities of applying for study and starting your course in different countries.

Career opportunities
A course of study should put you on a path of a career you enjoy, but before you go that route, you should know what you want to do. New Zealand, for instance, is a great place to go if you wish to break into civil engineering. Civil engineers with handsome perks are in high demand due to the current expansion of construction projects across the country.
When in doubt, choose a subject with broader career possibilities, like communications or psychology. A variety of industries can benefit from these concepts, and these can be applied in a variety of ways to thrive.
Your AdmitCart counsellor can always advise you on the best course to get you where you want to go.

2. Where will you stay?

Accommodations off-campus include sharing apartments with fellows from India if you are staying at a university offering on-campus housing. Rental prices vary by region. AdmitCart's counsellors can assist you in exploring options for accommodation at your study destination.

3. Know your student visa cost
Visa rules and costs vary from country to country. You should consult your AdmitCart counsellor about the latest updates regarding the student visa procedure of your chosen study destination.

4. Be aware of your living expenses
It's challenging to adjust to a country's culture and way of life when you move there, and sometimes this has an added cost. You should set aside money for everyday expenses, grocery, communication (data and calling) expenses, stationery, utilities, social activities, and emergencies. Keep track of your expenses to manage your budget well.

5. Health support is essential
It is mandatory for all students traveling abroad to have medical insurance before their program begins! Medical insurance costs in Canada are estimated to range from CAD 300 to CAD 800 per year (indicative).
There are extensive health and support services available to international students from India regardless of their destination. We will help you choose the right health insurance for you.

6. You’ll have to commute
Find out if your institution offers a shuttle service. Otherwise, you'll need to use public transportation. On the local level, you can take regional trains, buses, and subways. You can view the schedule online or in government publications. If you commute to school, you can get affordable monthly passes.

7. Earning income entails paying taxes
During academic sessions and during breaks, Indian students can work a few hours per week (about 20 hrs) and full-time during vacations. Remember that when you earn, you'll also have to pay taxes. Verify whether your visa conditions permit you to work, and ask your counsellor about such opportunities.
Budgeting should also take into account exchange rate variations. In order to reduce the cost of studying abroad, you should look for a part-time job or apply for scholarships.
