Life as an International Student
Sometimes deciding how you want to build your career can be difficult and confusing. We have qualified and experienced career counsellors who can help you choose the best career path. They will study your aptitude, interests, academic and financial background and they will assist you in making one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
With the plethora of under-graduate and postgraduate courses available internationally, finding the right course is a mammoth task. We help you zero-in on courses that are most suited to your aptitude, career goals and financial situation.
SIG Overseas represents a wide range of universities. We will help you to choose the right one for you, based on the particular academic strengths of the institution, your academic background, the location of the institution and your financial ability to cover the tuition fees and living costs associated with study.
While international education has immense advantages, it is a costly affair. We understand that money is one of the biggest concerns for students planning to study overseas. We will provide you with comprehensive financial guidance, including accurate information on course fees, accommodation fees and the cost of living abroad. We will also provide you with information about the educational loans that are available from government and private banks, and about any scholarships that are available.
Once your application to study has been accepted you will need to apply for a student visa. For most students the visa application process is very daunting. However, SIG Overseas staff are there to help you. Our aim is to make the stressful process of visa application easier for you. We help you to sort out your documents and we check them to ensure that they meet the standards required by the visa offices of the country in which you have chosen to study. We assist you to fill out visa application forms and organise financial statements, and we prepare you for your interview. By maintaining contact with the foreign delegations of many countries we also keep you updated on any changes that may affect the visa application process.
Before you make that long trip abroad, we will give you all the information you need to travel and begin your life in a new country. Our pre-departure seminars focus on the different aspects of an international student's life: leaving home, travel, arriving in a new country, adjusting to a new culture, the new education environment - and all the things that will be expected of you as a student. We can also put you in touch with new students like yourselves and older, more experienced international students who can act as mentors for your first few weeks.
When you land in the country you have chosen, SIG Overseas makes sure that there is someone to look out for you. We provide you with airport pick up and with the contact details of people who can help you should any problems arise.
