COVID-19: Things you could do about study abroad
You were gearing up for your education abroad but COVID-19 outbreak has put a halt to all your future plans? Well, don’t worry. You are not alone, and here, in this article we’ll let you know things that you can do to remain unaffected or least affected:
- Stick to the original plan – continue your application processNone of us are sure about the time when the pandemic will end, but some estimations mention the period between May and July, and because most of the universities start their admission process in September- October, they are accepting online applications from students at this time.
If this situation continues further than July (which is possible), universities will adapt to these changing conditions. And not just the students, but the universities are equally affected, which is why they will adjust the application and enrollment deadlines to fit the changes in the academic year schedule.
We also suggest you to stay informed about the spread of COVID-19 from the official sources like the World Health Organisation (WHO) and not believe in everything circulating over the social media.
- Plan to start your education abroad in 2021
If you are doubtful about this situation ending anytime soon, postpone your international studies for 2021. Also, if the country where you were planning to study is hit hard by this pandemic, you can search for some other country and change your destination. We, Your EduAdvisors, can also help you search for the best option to look out for in the coming year.
- Study an online degree
If you are not planning to take admission this year, neither are you wanting to wait until next year then the best thing that you could as of now is to get yourself enrolled in the online bachelor’s degree course/ online master’s degree course.
For these courses, you will have to have the right system requirements on your PC or laptop.The only downside is that your online degree might take more years to complete compared to on-campus options, depending on the course intensity.
And for questions like: which universities are offering these courses, how will you apply, what is the fee structure, contact our counsellors and they’ll guide you with it.
- Don’t stop your learning
Whether you are opting to start next year or this year or simply choosing the online classes, you should remember that learning shouldn’t stop. You shouldn’t give up on your personal development right now. And to help you with that, some of the universities are offering online short courses. Our team of mentors can help you with these courses.
