1) How much will it cost to study in your child’s desired destination?
It is essential to consider the overall expense involved in studying at the chosen destination. When calculating costs, make sure to consider extra expenses such as accommodation, utilities, transportation, and so on. The duration of the course will majorly affect the overall cost of studying abroad.
2) Do your child fulfil the entry requirements?
Always look for the entry requirements for the programmes available in the desired destination. Is it a diploma programme or a degree? Understand your preference and select accordingly. For example, several colleges in Canada offer a postgraduate diploma instead of a master’s degree.
3) What is the scope of your child’s selected course in their desired destination?
Understand the industries that are open for them to explore employment opportunities.
Take into account the countries that have maximum opportunities for students undertaking their chosen course.
4) Does their chosen destination offer employment opportunities?
Their chosen course should be able to help them grow professionally and find employment. Consider a destination that offers multiple employment opportunities for the chosen course.
5) What is the value of their degree back in the home country?
Unless they are planning to settle abroad in their destination of choice, it is important to check how relevant their degree is in your home country and if they will get any job opportunities. If not, they may be left with a huge student loan with no returns.
