Can I get admission without taking standardized tests?

It will be very difficult to get exemption from submitting a prescribed minimum TOEFL/IELTS test score, as all universities and colleges in USA/Australia/Canada/UK/New Zealand are mandated to check the level of the English language proficiency of international students whose native language is not English, before offering admission. A few universities may offer admission but enforce a condition that the student should take English Language courses in their institution before he/she is considered eligible to commence the intended degree program. Such English language tuition will be expensive.

It may be possible to get waiver of SAT/GRE/GMAT and get admission to a few universities in USA. However those who do not take these tests and secure satisfactory scores are not considered favorably by the US Visa Consulate during visa interviews.

Students must understand that these tests and certain minimum score levels are prescribed in the interests of the students as securing these scores will establish that the students demonstrate their aptitude to confidently pursue the courses that are taught only in English language.

What is the process for applying and securing admission
  • Selection of university
  • Documentation
  • Communicating standardized test scores where necessary
  • Demonstrating financial ability to meet entire educational expenses
  • Immigration documents
What is accreditation? Why accredited universities?

Accreditation is the process through which educational institutions and programs in the US and other countries receive recognition that they meet established quality standards. Accreditation is important in higher education abroad as this voluntary nongovernmental system for setting educational standards is recognized by educational institutions and governments in the US and other countries.

Accreditation is important because:
  • It indicates that a certain institution meets established minimum standards.
  • Most universities in the United States/other countries are likely to accept degrees only from accredited universities.
  • Recognized employing agencies and the government of India are also likely to accept degrees only from accredited universities.
  • When a student seeks financial assistance, funding agencies are likely to view admission to accredited universities as a prerequisite to an award of financial assistance.
What is the involvement?
  • Complex documentation
  • Adherence to deadline dates
  • Requirements vary from university to university
  • Time consuming
  • Expensive: Application Fees, Courier, Communicating scores, follow-up
  • Lack of understanding and incorrect/inappropriate documentation may result in costly failures
How much do I have to spend?

Tuition may be as low as US$5000 in a few European countries anything from US$ 20,000 to 40,000 per year in USA/UK/ Australia/Canada.

Living, transport and miscellaneous expenses may also vary from place to place and may range from US$ 1000 to US$ 1200 or more per month

What about financing

Students who are unable to afford high tuition have a great chance to study in select European countries in which well-established universities with worldwide recognition for quality of technology and science offer programs in English language at low tuition fee. With opportunity for paid part time work students may be able to take care of much of their living expenses too. Please contact us for more information.

Waivers (part or in full), scholarships, fellowships, assistantships may be offered by universities in USA subject to availability and based on merit. Need based financial support is not considered.

International students are not eligible for need-based financial assistance. However at the time of admission some tuition reduction is offered by universities.

European countries

Tuition fee in a few European countries is low. With such a low tuition and liberal grant of bank loans for education all students who may have limited financial resources can confidently pursue higher education to enhance their professional and career opportunities.. If a student is able to get paid part time work, he/she can take care of most of the living expenses.

What about Visa

What is an internship?

An internship is a full-time work-learning placement for which a student may be even awarded academic credit. These placements are supervised; career-related work experiences combined with reflective, academic study that help students apply theoretical knowledge in the workplace. A student may take an internship for such a period as may be approved by the college/university.

Benefits of doing an internship

An internship provides exposure to the demands of specific jobs and allows the student to learn from professionals. The practical skills and experience gained by carrying out an internship may not only give a taste of what it would be like to work in the chosen sector and to help decide if this is the right path, but it will also greatly increase the student’s employability in an ever competitive job market.
