Study Abroad Tips:
It is always suggested that you should do prior research on the basic culture, habits, and generally accepted norms of the society that you are going to be a part of. Studying abroad is all about getting a different experience altogether from the rest of the world apart from learning.
- Plan the budget - The first thing that needs to be planned is your budget or expenses for daily living. This is absolutely different from the university fee, hostel fee, etc. It is wise to plan your living well in advance, although it may seem a bit strict at first, it is essential for making a sustainable living and avoids big and unplanned expenses. The first thing on the list should be to keep aside the amount you will spend on food. Experiences and shopping are the next two things which people end up spending their money on. Please make a list of what you need and where you would like to go for a visit with a timeline. This would not let you shed the money in one go. The other study abroad tips to plan a budget that will compliment your budgeting are as follows:
- Prefer cooking by yourself instead of eating outside.
- Keep an eye on sales/offers etc. if you plan to buy something.
- Avail the student discount, wherever available
- Look for Cheaper accommodation & supermarket
- Work part-time to support your living. Most of the European countries allow their students to work 20 hrs per week.
- Plan a visit to the local embassy – Students, at times, neglect this particular aspect. We always advise you to do visit the local embassy and update them on your whereabouts. Be smart. Be safe.
- Plan to travel on non-peak days – If you find the off or no sessions on Thursday & Monday, plan your traveling on these days. In Europe, you will find less rush during transportation on these days.
- Use tap water while commuting – In India we have the habit of buying water bottles due to obvious reasons but in Europe, tap water is equally safe to consume.
