What are your career goals? How the university and the course together help in achieving your career objectives? What would be your contribution to the university? What are your past achievements? We suggest you take professional help, as Indians do not have the habit of preparing an SoP.

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider is time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure. Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department look for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curriculars, financial background and their application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university. Taking a look at the placements that the university has, gives candidates an idea of which skillsets are nurtured by the associated university.

Talking to alumni and people who are acquainted with the university in question is the also essential to figuring out if the university fits you and vice versa. It is also important to consider the immigration aspect if the candidate is inclined to stay in the country in which they are pursuing their higher education.
