Your counsellor will help you prepare for the visa application in advance, in an administrative role. This includes getting all the documentation together, and answering any questions you can prepare in advance.

This depends on your situation. If this is the first visa you are lodging IN Australia (onshore), your student visa (500 subclass) will be $550. However, if you have already lodged a visa onshore (i.e. your second Working Holiday), your visa will cost $1,250. Immigration adds a $700 surcharge to all subsequent visa applications.

Note: should you leave the country to lodge, the fee goes back to the original $550.

Adding other people to your visa (i.e. a partner) incurs an additional charge – $410 for a partner, and $135 for children under 18 years old.

If you are on a bridging visa, you will continue the work rights of the visa you originally held. If you were on a Working Holiday or Work & Holiday, you can keep working full time until you are granted the student visa. If you have been granted the student visa, but class has not started, you lose your work rights until class starts. If you were on a visitor visa, you will not have work rights until the visa is granted AND class has started.

If you are studying a Masters or higher, your partner has unlimited work rights at all times. If you are studying a bachelor or lower, your partner can only work 40 hours every 2 weeks (i.e. 30 hours one week, 10 hours the next week).

 

While class is IN session, including the exam period, you can work 40 hours every 2 weeks (i.e. 30 hours one week, 10 hours the next week). When your course is NOT in session, you can work unlimited hours.

 

You can be onshore (in Australia) for 93 days from the day you apply to your student visa, to the first day of class.

The average cost is $450-480 for a single, and $2,100-$2,500 for a couple, per year.

International students can only study CRICOS-approved courses. Therefore, not all institutions or courses are available to you. However, there is a huge selection of programs, at all levels of education, available across the country.

Generally speaking, UK, Irish, Canadian, USA, and European passport holders will NOT have to show fund s for the visa application. However, you can still be asked at the discretion of your case officer!

Immigration expects that you will have sufficient funds to live and study in Australia. This amounts to $19,830 for your first year’s living expenses + fees for your first year of tuition + return airfare.

This amount can be shown by anyone you are close to. However, be prepared to explain the nature of the relationship if it is not your immediate family.

This evidence can also be shown by one, or both, of your parents if they earned the equivalent of $AUD 60,000 in the last financial year. This must be shown in the form of official government-issued tax statements.

Yes, you need to show at least a high school certificate (or transcripts), for both the enrolment and the visa application. A scanned copy should suffice.

In addition, we provide counselling on your studies, and may help you come up with some ideas you have not considered.

Be careful of agents who offer discounts. This is not allowed by the institutions; thus you are putting your life in the hands of unethical people in the industry.

It is a very good idea to tour the college(s) that the agent is suggesting. Once you enrol, it is difficult to move to another institution. Make informed decisions!

United Kingdom

Though IELTS can be waived sometimes by the university if the year 12 English language score is more than 70% it is better to do language proficiency test like IELTS or PTE as the top end universities would want these scores. In some cases the university may have their own test. Eg: ARU and DMU

Generally, Master’s Courses in the UK do not require a GMAT with an exception of a Master’s in Finance in a few universities like Lancaster, LSE etc.

By completion of the course if a student is able to find a job with an annual package of 21,000 pounds per annum from a company listed in the UKVI website then the Visa can be extended. Students doing a PhD get 1 year extension or starting a business can also extend their visas Tier 1.

Choice of a university should ideally be based on the course modules that suit ones interest. Rankings can be a guideline as the parameters in different ranking lists vary.

Full time international students are allowed to work 20 hours part time during the term period and 40 hours or full time during vacations. On an average a student is paid a minimum of 7-10 pounds per hour.

The Industrial Experience year enables you to gain relevant industrial experience as part of your studies by usually spending your third year working for a company. Besides the money that you earn during this year, you also gain practical experience that can be invaluable both in your final year project and when applying for jobs after graduating.

Yes, all the students are required to attend a credibility Interview via Skype from UKVI. The interview is designed to check whether you are a genuine student who knows details about the course going to be studied.

You can change the Course if it is in the same department at the same university. It has to be approved by the Admissions tutor.

Yes, design courses require a portfolio. A basic portfolio needs at least 20 pieces of work showing artistic and creative ability as well as sketching skills. This can be sent as a web link , CD or as scanned copies.

 

The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK provides free and subsidized health care to international students if their Course is over 6 months.

Many colleges have Pathway programmes validated by a university that allow you to prepare for a degree course. They last from six months to a year and teach you a variety of subjects, including the one you plan to study – English, study skills, research and more. They are sometimes called foundation, diploma or pre masters courses as well. They can be studied in the UK or in India as well.

Usually 15–18 hours per week are allocated for classroom teaching. Apart from that, library research, tutorials and assignments too have to be scheduled into your timetable.

Most of the courses don’t require any test as British universities accept the Indian academic marks, but a few professional courses like LLB and Medicine require tests like LNAT and UKCAT respectively. GMAT too is only required for MBA or Masters in certain universities

The universities that require LNAT are more competitive and get a lot more applications than the others. The test is more of a filter rather than a sign of being better.

The academic grades are the most important criteria of admission to a British university. Sports and extracurricular activities better your profile in comparison to others, especially for scholarships, Job Interviews etc. There are a few scholarships which you will be eligible for based on the sport played.Eg: Cardiff

As long as the paperwork is in order it should take about 15 working days. Students in Bangalore can file a priority visa which normally takes 5 working days. It costs Rs 10,000 extra. This facility is only available in Bangalore.

Scholarships are usually merit based. So the first criterion is academic marks. You have to have an offer from the university which you need to accept. Most scholarships require you to write an essay on a given topic, and some may have an interview as well. Your CV should stand out as scholarships are very competitive.

Canada

Applying under the SPP category ensures the file gets priority assessment in terms of processing time and lesser amount of documentation. Under the General Category, the student can be expected to provide more documentation in terms of financial capabilities. But the category you choose has no effect on your chances of getting a visa.

Most of the SPP Colleges offer Diplomas, Bachelor’s, and Post Graduate Diploma programs.

No, an education loan is not mandatory to consider an application under SPP. You can apply under SPP by having an account in Scotia Bank with 10,200 GIC and having paid fees of at least one semester. Yet if you still want to apply under the general category, you can use your education loan to prove existence of funds.

Canada is attracting a good number of students from all over India and is fast emerging as a preferred destination for higher education for overseas students, not just from India but from the entire world. And the aim of SPP, which is an administrative framework designed and implemented in partnership between the Canadian visa offices in India and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CIC), is to provide a faster and more efficient student visa application process.

It always depends upon which college and program you choose, but consider the average fees to be in the range of CAD $13,000 to CAD $15,000. If you are choosing a 2-year diploma course, your budget would be around 15 lakh rupees, including food and accommodation.

Generally, it depends on each individual college’s admission policy, but as per our practical knowledge, a maximum of 4 – 6 backlogs are acceptable.

Students must be: 12th pass – HSC / All Diploma holders (10+3, 10+2+3) / All Bachelor’s degrees / All Master’s degrees (Academics should be above 55 % or minimum 2nd class is MUST & have a maximum of 4 – 6 backlogs) and age up to 25 years with genuine work experience.

A minimum overall 6.0 band is required and no band less than 5.5 OR Overall 6.5 band required for PG programs & for programs related to Dental, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, and Nursing – you would need to have an overall 6.5 to 7.0 band depending on the program and college.

It depends on the colleges themselves.

You can find all Canadian colleges and universities’ information on their respective websites OR you can contact us directly and we will advise you according your academic profile.

The minimum students need to pay the university or college is the 1st semester’s tuition fees before applying for the visa.

It is basically a Proof of funds. You are basically giving them an evidence of purchase of a special Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) from a participating Canadian financial institution (Scotia Bank), in the amount of $10,280 CAD that you need to cover your living expenses for the first year in Canada.

Europe

In addition to study programmes in their official languages, most European countries also offer many programmes taught in English. Have a look at the different country profiles, where you will find more information.

We would recommend contacting the International Office of the higher education institutions in Europe you are particularly interested in to ask for detailed information on admission requirements. You may also look on the country profiles on the Study in Europe portal, where you will find useful information on all European countries and general information on admission requirements.

Costs for accommodation, food and drink, transport etc. vary across Europe. The country profiles may help you to find out more. Do not forget to ask the International Office of the European higher education institution that you are interested in about the average living costs in their city. Additionally, we have put together some tips on how to save money as a student in Europe.

Applicants need at least four years of university studies and six months of relevant professional experience.
They should also have a strong interest in transatlantic affairs as well as basic knowledge of the EU.

Applicants will typically have a university degree in one of the following areas:
• International Relations
• Political Science
• Diplomatic Studies
• Law
• Economics or Business Administration
• European or American Studies
• Contemporary (European or American) History

Depending on the study track chosen, specific prerequisites exist. For the Economics track, students should have successfully followed courses in Statistics, Microeconomics and Macroeconomics at an intermediate level. For the International Relations and Diplomacy Studies track, students should have previous knowledge of EU institutions and decision-making. For the Legal Studies track, students should have a legal background and a prior knowledge of EU institutional law.

The programme is structured into five study tracks:
• Economic Studies (Bruges);
• International Relations and Diplomacy (Bruges);
• Interdisciplinary Studies (Natolin);
• Legal Studies (Bruges);
• Political and Governance Studies (Bruges)

Generally students beginning at The Fletcher School are required to take seven courses with at least one course from each of the three divisions: International Law and Organizations; Diplomacy, History and Politics; and Economics and International Business. MATA students spending their first year at the College of Europe are affiliated with one of the five study programmes and follow a tailor-made study track: European Economic Studies, European Interdisciplinary Studies (Natolin), EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies, European Legal Studies or European Political and Governance Studies. All MATA students will also follow a joint transatlantic course during their first year in the programme.

Students spending their first year at The Fletcher School will do an internship in semester 3 of the programme and spend their final semester at the College of Europe and integrate into one of its academic departments. Students spending their first year at the College of Europe can choose to do their internship in semester 3 or 4 and will, during the remaining semester, do coursework at The Fletcher School.

In general, studying in Europe offers good value for money. Each European country has its own tuition fee policy. Have a look at the country profiles, where you can see the typical tuition fees per country.

Study in Europe is not a higher education institution. Study in Europe is a European Union project, which aims to help international students to find out about higher education study, research and scholarship opportunities in Europe. Please visit this page of the Study in Europe portal if you wish to learn more about the project.

With thousands of world-class universities, higher education institutions and research institutes in Europe, it is difficult to tell you which university will be the best for you. Each student has different priorities, interests and wishes. We propose to check the Study in Europe checklist to start gathering information about European higher education institutions. If you want to consult a university ranking, U-Multirank is a user-driven ranking that covers different aspects of higher education and can be adapted to your needs and priorities. U-Multirank is an independent tool, financially supported by the European Union in its first years.

This is handled differently by each country and sometimes even by each higher education institution. We recommend contacting the International Office of the European university where you want to study to check if the certificate/degree that you already obtained will be recognized. You can also find more information on the recognition of academic and professional qualifications on the ENIC-NARIC portal.

Almost every non- EU/EEA resident needs a visa when he or she wants to stay in Europe for a considerable period of time. Students are often required to apply for a student visa. With this visa, you can stay in your host country for a fixed period of time. The rules concerning visas may differ from one country to another. Check the EU Immigration portal for more information and contact the respective embassy of the European country you are interested in studying in.

Study in Europe informs international students about higher education in Europe. For this, we do not charge fees to students.

Many students work part-time whilst they study or during the university holidays to help support themselves financially. Each country has restrictions on the maximum amount of hours that an international student can work during his/her studies. Check the immigration website for each country to find out more on this topic.

Each country, even each higher education institution, decides on its admission requirements. We would recommend contacting the International Office of your selected higher education institution in Europe to ask for detailed information on its specific requirements regarding English language certificates.

Each European country has adopted different regulations to allow students to stay on after their studies to look for a job. However, the European Union has requested that international students can stay at least for 9 months to look for a suitable work opportunity. Check the immigration website for each country to find out more.

Study in Europe does not offer scholarships at all. The Refugee Welcome map offers an overview of different initiatives for refugee students and researchers.

On the Study in Europe portal, you will find lots of information about studying in Europe, including a country profile for each European country. Browse the different country profiles and learn more about the higher education systems. The Study in Europe checklist will help you to plan the different steps you have to take to study in Europe. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we post interesting facts and information about studying in Europe.

A maximum of five students may begin at each institution each year. Therefore, in any academic year there could be a total of twenty students since the program takes two academic years to complete.

During the fall semester of the first year, MATA students will take a joint course (via video conference) focused on the cultural, economic, legal and political aspects of the transatlantic relationship. In the spring term, MATA students will be engaged in a joint transatlantic project focused on solving a problem of a transatlantic nature.

 

Students are strongly encouraged to seek an internship of four months, which is also the maximum possible length. A minimum of three consecutive months is required.

As long as they have a transatlantic focus, internships may be in any sector and may take place in Europe or North America. In principle, students spending their first year in the US will do their internship in Europe and vice versa.

The College of Europe and The Fletcher School offer scholarships and tuition waivers to a high percentage of their students across all study programmes, including the MATA programmes. Additionally, we encourage students to apply for external funding sources, for instance via the Fulbright Schuman programme.

As far as your internship is concerned: please check the national regulations for the country where you will do your internship. As far as your studies are concerned: please check the national regulations for Belgium/Poland/the US. If you study a full academic year in Belgium/Poland, you will need a visa type D (ask for a Schengen visa, multiple entry).

Yes, you can. However, applying also to the one-year College of Europe programmes will require a separate application form including two letters of recommendation from other professors.

Graduates of this programme will be prepared for positions of leadership in a variety of areas – ranging from international and national public sector functions to responsibilities in the private and non-profit sectors – with an international outlook and the ability to deal with cross-border issues in a multidisciplinary manner.

Graduates of the College of Europe and The Fletcher School have gone on to exciting careers in international organizations (United Nations, NATO), the European Union, national diplomatic services and ministries, private companies, consultancies and law firms, non-for-profit organizations, think tanks and academia.

If you spend a full academic year at the College of Europe, the College will automatically reserve a room for you in one of its student residences for the entire academic year.

If you only spend the fourth semester of the MATA programme at the College of Europe, the College will automatically reserve a room for you in one of its student residences for the duration of this semester, that is from January to June.

If you do your internship in Belgium and you would like to stay in one of the student residences during the third semester of the MATA Programme, you should check well in advance if a room is available by contacting Mrs Katrijn PIETERS (General Services).
