10 things parents should know about studying abroad

1. Education in is self-managed and experiential

Instead of rote learning limited to pen and paper, students will have the opportunity to learn concepts, ideas and issues through experience. Professors use case studies and their experiences from the industry and encourage students to think creatively about real-world problems. This style of learning allows students to follow their passions and learn without any barriers.

3. Culture shock

The biggest challenge for international students is handling the new and foreign culture that they find themselves in. Successfully handling this challenge will form the foundation of success of students in foreign countries. Indian nationals are used to living in a diverse country with different cultures and therefore find it easier to handle new cultures.

4. When in Rome, be a Roman

Indians are the most successful nationality in most developed countries. This is not only because of their intelligence and hardworking nature, but also because of their ability to assimilate into the local culture easily. Students who take the time to learn about and indulge themselves in local culture find it easier to thrive in a new country.

5. Opportunities galore

As hardworking people, Indians are wired to find opportunities in all circumstances. This trait is fully satisfied when studying abroad as opportunities for growth are always available at every corner; right from the classroom, to the workplace, opportunities can present themselves anywhere.

6. If you don’t ask, you don’t get

Although opportunities are abundantly available, they are not always visible or freely advertised, but are hidden and waiting to be uncovered. Several surveys reveal that most jobs are not advertised and around 70% to 85% people have reported that they found their job through networking. The moral of the story is that one must always ask people for what they want: if you don’t ask, you don’t get.

7. Dignity of labour

All developed countries place a high value on any physical labour that people do. This not only means that people who engage in part-time work as a waiter, bar tender or a delivery expert will be paid well, but it also means that they will be treated well in society. So, if your child opts to work part-time to earn some pocket money, be supportive and encourage them.

8. Support System

Your child will be away from you in a foreign land and your concern for them will increase tremendously. In addition to the financial support you provide to your child, be sure to provide them moral support while they navigate a new life. It is important to drive them to look at the world positively and find opportunity in every situation.

9. Transition to adulthood

During balancing different responsibilities such as living alone, cooking for themselves, look after their well being and studying hard, your children will quickly transition to adulthood. This transition will come much sooner than for their friends who choose to stay back in their hometown.  Be sure recognise this transition and congratulate them often.

10. A changed person

At the end of this exciting journey, your child will come back a changed person. They will be a better version of themselves with confidence, culture and a successful future.
