A Perfect Study Abroad Guide for Parents
Studying abroad is not a challenge for students but their parents too; sending their children to an entirely new place is more challenging. It is one of the bravest decisions they have to make. But then it is an excellent opportunity for the children as they will be exposed to an international experience that will widen their horizons and thinking. Being one of the biggest challenges for the students, so being a parent, it is essential to support them and be an active part of this process.
There are specific points that a parent of an international student should keep in mind and can be a perfect study guide for parents:
1. Be open with the child
A parent needs to be open with the child and understand their reason for going abroad. It could be career-oriented or personal. To guide the child, it's necessary to know what he's seeking.
2. Extensive research
The child does his part of the research, but as a parent, to be sure of the country and the course the child wants to pursue, it's their responsibility also to research extensively about the course and the university that will best suit them. As a parent, they know best about their children, and they can take better decisions.
3. Understand the Challenges
It's essential to understand and know a parent's challenges. So, talk to the people who have sent their children abroad. Try to understand their experiences and learn from what they have missed during the preparations. It will help the parents to be as specific they can.
4. Go for Counseling
Canam offers counselling for students and their parents who wish to study overseas, and this helps them understand the culture and the requirements they need for studying abroad. Both students and students should be well prepared for the new experience they will face in the new environment.
5. Financial information
The cost of studying abroad is always more than that of studying in the home country. So, it's essential to know about all the costs involved in the process of studying abroad. It is a lot of responsibility for the parent to arrange sufficient funds for their children to study overseas. The tuition fee and the living costs, medical, visa costs, and all other miscellaneous costs are to be included in the budget. The budget is a mirror image of the financials that will be required for studying overseas.
6. Health Safety
As a parent, they must be cautious about the child's health as there will be a massive difference in the temperatures of both countries. Also, the child will have no support from the parents, so it's essential to take all the necessary precautions to maintain good health. Make a list of all the prescriptions that a child takes and seek doctor's help to know about the same medicine brands available in the study destination.
7. Travel safety
It's daunting to send the child thousands of miles away, and that is why it is essential to be sure about their travel safety.
1. The child should be insured before leaving by taking the travel insurance.
2. Be aware of the local laws and international student rights.
3. The students should be vaccinated well before common diseases in a new destination.
4. Both parents and students should keep emergency contacts.
5. Explain and equip the children well with the travel safety kit
Parents need not bother sending their children abroad, as Canam Consultants is just a call away to guide them through the process. They will be assisted in all the terms.
