Select Right Universities

U.S.A has the largest number of universities in the world. There are more than 3900 universities and colleges that offer post-secondary education, right from Bachelors got the Post-doctoral level.

When an international student is looking to apply for a few universities, how does he approach the enormously difficult process of applying to only a few universities? There are several aspects which need to be considered carefully before choosing the right universities to apply. Some, of importance, is,



Are they suitable for him or a miss-match?

Are they cheaper or costlier?

Do they offer financial aid or not?

Do they have the fields of specialization that the applicant is interested in?

Do they have suitable and reputed faculty? Do they have the right infrastructure?

What about employment prospects?

What chances are there for further education?

What sort of accreditation does the university have?

Do they offer flexibility in transferring to other courses or programs within or outside their university?

Do they have proper support staff to help international students?

What is the geography of the university like?

When a student faces with this onerous task, more often than most, a lot of mistakes could happen - in choices, in the selection and in the whole process!

Especially, when most of the websites and posted catalogues look quite attractive and do reflect the true colours of the institution, it is important to be careful. There are universities that have multiple campuses in hundreds of acres and there are universities as small as a two-room flat! The information on them may be presented equally 'bright', which may lure an unsuspecting student into the trap of joining and not being able to come out later!

This is where professional expertise plays a major role. Companies like Career Consultancy with its years of experience cull the information from several resources, reconfirm and then make decisions for bright aspirants like you - so that you can never go wrong. A wrong step directly or through fly-by-night-operators could waste precious time and money for you, which is everything in today's fast-paced world.

Our mandate is to empower you with all the information and make you focused on the good of what you intend to do - for your own future. Our career centre, student advisers, the research team, managerial staff and the top management will make sure that you choose the right course, program and process, through our gamut of services.

Consulate General: PO Box 16711, Calcutta-70027
Consulate General: Hoechst House, 10th floor, Nariman Point, 193 Backbay Reclamation, Mumbai-400021 Pre - Departure Information

Pre-departure orientation sessions are organized for students on their way to the foreign destinations following receipt of their student visas. These Sessions give students a taste of what life is like in the foreign, both academically and culturally.

If you have been admitted to a program of study in a foreign college, you should bring with you any syllabi, catalogues, bulletins, course descriptions or other relevant materials issued by the secondary school or university you have attended most recently."

"When travelling abroad, it is important to carry all important documents on your person. Do not put them in a suitcase. Do not loan or give them to anyone unless that person can show you some form of identification that he/she is authorized to receive them."

"Keep in mind that it may take several weeks to have funds transferred from your bank at home to a bank in the foreign - even with a Demand Draft".

"Host Family Programs pair a foreign family with a foreign student for the purpose of friendship and culture sharing. They provide for student visits to a family home for meals, esp. During occasions like Thanksgiving or Christmas.

"For festive occasions, bring a traditional dress and accessories from your country. You may also want to bring any musical instruments you play, pictures of your home, recordings of traditional music and examples of arts and crafts of your country."

Carry some books on Indian Culture and religion. Be prepared to answer questions, often in depth, say on your religion.

Indians tend to stick together when in foreign shores. While this is helpful in getting used to a new place, you tend to lose out on learning about new cultures and countries. Try to make friends from other countries too.

International Airways usually allows students to carry an extra piece of luggage, over and above the mandatory 2 suitcases and a handbag.

Keep your identification on your entire luggage, inside and outside. Missing luggage isn't as rare as you expect it to be. For this reason, it also helps if you keep all important papers and cash in your handbag only, not in the suitcases.

Don't carry Euro100 bills. People do not usually have change for a 100 in cabs and most shops. It is preferable to carry Euro10, Euro20 notes instead. Also, do not carry more than Euro200 in cash if you can help it. Use a credit card, ATM card or traveler's cheque. Less chance of loss or robbery this way. Even an international demand draft usually takes about 2 - 4 weeks to get cash. Carry enough money with you to last you for the first month or so.

Get an International Driving Permit if possible. It is needed to get a driver's license in foreign. A driver's license is an important identification card in abroad, right after your passport. Since you do not want to carry your passport everywhere, it makes sense to get a license. You will need one for cashing a cheque, even issuing one, for renting a car or a house, in fact for most transactions. If you do not know driving, you can even ask the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue a non-driving license to you, used only as an ID card.

Learn to ride a bicycle in case you do not already know it. Students on most campuses ride bicycles - they're cheaper and healthier than cars. An old bike costs about Euro50 - 60, while a new one will set you back by Euro90 or more.

Keep a day's change of clothes in your handbag. This way, if the airline screws up real bad and loses your entire luggage, you will not have to buy clothes immediately

Education is a provincial responsibility under the Canadian constitution, which means there are significant differences between the education systems of the different provinces. However, education is important to Canadians, and standards across the country are uniformly high.

Once students complete elementary school which is up to 8thstandard, they would take up High school education comprising of classes 9thto 12th.

There are more than 175 post-secondary institutions that offer various programs such as Certificate, Diploma and Bachelor's, including vocational and adult education. These institutions are known as Community colleges, Technical Institute, University College and ce`gep. All these colleges are members of the Association of Canadian Community colleges.



Undergraduate programs are of 4 years duration, except in Ontario, where there is three-year Bachelor degrees and three-year Master's degrees. In the other parts of Canada, post-graduate programs (Master's) are of two years duration.

A degree from a Canadian university is recognized worldwide and as a result, international students who graduate from Canadian universities enjoy successful and prosperous careers.

Entry Requirements for Germany

Academic Background

A student aspiring to study in Germany should possess an above average or at least average academic record. All qualifications are assessed by relevant institutions to ascertain whether the student is eligible to be admitted into a certain course.




Language Proficiency

Since the medium of instruction in most German institutions is English, proficiency in the German language is not a necessary criterion for admission decisions to be made. However, a student is expected to show his proficiency in the German language for a better living. It is imperative that students have at least a basic knowledge of German. At GECS we conduct basic/advanced German language classes which student can avail from us. Courses in business German are also offered. A student can take up an elementary course in India itself, and then continue to learn the language once he reaches Germany.




TOEFL/IELTS/Graduate Admissions Tests

Most German universities do not expect TOEFL, IELTS or GRE scores. Some universities that offer International degree programs in English might expect a TOEFL/IELTS score, but even that is usually waived if the student's education has been in the English language. Some of the Management schools may ask for a GMAT score. Even in schools where it is not asked, a student with a GMAT score will be given preference over one who has not given the test, provided the score is a good one.

The program to become MD in Germany after MBBS in India is filled with quite a few challenges.
The steps are well defined and it takes an additional 2 years to study PG medicine in Germany though it ultimately gives an opportunity for PG in Germany.




How the Institutions are structured:

Since the time of Wilhelm von Humboldt the governing principle has been "the unity of research and teaching". Since the opening-up of the universities, however, with the resulting trend towards mass institutions, this ideal is only partially in line with the times. Aspects such as practical applicability and relevance to vocational requirements are constantly gaining in importance. This is particularly true at Fachhochschulen where the courses are shorter and the curriculum more tightly-organised than at the universities. Ever more new students are opting to study at Fachhochschulen. The "freedom of teaching and research" guarantees institutions the right to self-administration even if they are financed by the state. In the framework of the Higher Education Act of the respective Land, they award themselves their own charters. Universities are headed by a Rector or President, several Pro-rectors or Vice-presidents, and a Chancellor. The Academic Senate is responsible for general affairs concerning research, teaching and studying. It is composed of elected representatives of all the members of the institution, ie. Students and non-academic staff, too. The students elect their own Student Representation. Its various bodies are self-administrating and safeguard student rights with regard to higher education policy, as well as dealing with students' social and cultural interests.

Where do teaching and research take place?

The individual disciplines are grouped together into faculties or departments (eg. the "Philosophical Faculty" or the "Department of Economics"). The faculties and departments are empowered to pass regulations governing studies and examinations. An elected Dean is in charge of faculty or departmental business. Each subject has its own institute or "Seminar" (in Germany this word has a double meaning: a course and a department building or room). This will be the place you spend most of your time because this is where the teaching staff and other students are to be found. You will find literature on your subject in the "Seminar"-library, while general information on your course of study is available from the Departmental Student Organisation ("Fachschaft"). Queries about organisational matters can be addressed to the secretary's office.
