Which Course? Which Institution?

Before you submit an application, you must be able to answer with confidence the following questions:

  • Do the selected universities and courses adequately address my needs? Consider how they compare in terms of getting a recognized degree in your country, offering the right courses, securing future employment or providing the necessary support.
  • Do I have sufficient financial resources for the completion of my studies?
  • Is the university located in a desirable location? Consider personal safety, respect for international students, affordability or access to facilities.
  • Do I have relatives or friends in the country, host city of university? This may not be a critical point because you may want to start afresh or lead an independent lifestyle overseas.
  • Am I ready to study overseas? Consider carefully if you have a relationship at home or if you are relatively reliant on your family.

If you are unsure of which university and which course you should undertake, our counsellors at AUG will be able to assist you. Please visit us or enquire with us through this website.
