The high cut-offs in colleges this year would have dampened the ambitions of many students. With the Sri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi, announcing a 100 per cent cut-off for the BCom honours course, things could get grimmer for the average student. In this scenario, a course abroad could be the next logical step forward for students who want nothing less than their choice of course or specialisation. And www.int study.com is a site that will give you the low-down on studying in universities abroad.
The four main components of the site are titled college search, course centre, living and learning and application form. You can also access information about studying in Australia, Europe, New Zealand, Canada, the US and the UK from links at the bottom of the site.
If you already have a course in mind then visit the college search page first to locate where you can study. This application features a list of courses in universities from various cities. By typing in keywords of subject or the country preferred as your academic destination, you can find colleges where your preferred courses are offered.
The international course centre is the next main component of the site. It contains a wide compilation of articles from international journals. From information about internships to postgraduate study in the UK the section has several interesting reads written by academics and experts that have been compiled from various sources.
Both parents and students are plagued with several thoughts about living and studying in a foreign country. The aptly titled living and learning section clears the air on student life abroad. Here you will find valuable information about climate, visas, accommodation, the education system, immigration, living costs, tuition fees and scholarships in each country page.
On intstudy.com you can discover several aspects of studying abroad. There is country specific information with a huge database of articles to give students a glimpse into international education. This is also one of the best resources on the site that will give aspiring students a fair insight into the education scenario of various countries. But the information is not presented uniformly. Readers could overlook some important data because it may not be presented prominently in the website. The design and appearance too is nothing to write home about.
