World Ranked Universities has centuries old tradition of excellence. Numerous colleges and universities, at level with the best in the world, offer a vibrant, and creative environment. The Institutions provide a solid foundation on which to develop your potential, boost your career prospects and build your future.
Counselors or student advisors who may or may not be representatives of an university, act as the first and foremost link between a student and Institution. They are required to possess detailed, accurate information about various options to a course and the ability to advise and assist prospective students with the admission process. They may administer aptitude tests and probe into the ability of applicants to benefit from and succeed in the courses to which they apply.
Institutions of higher education offer a large range of courses, including foundation programmes, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and diplomas, and research programmes. Most universities and colleges take in new students in September while a few do so in January/ February/May and in November for select courses.
It is really a difficult choice from the enormous range of opportunities offered in the World which often leaves prospective students dazed. We help you pinpoint the course, institution and country that would suit your needs and give head start to your career. Our advice takes into account all the factors that determine your choice of an institution and the country. For more details, please see Services.
QS World University Ranking and several ranking agencies provide the data to find the ranking of a particular Uni/College. For instance The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) is an independent body in the UK funded by subscriptions from universities and colleges of higher education to ensure that the provision and standards of higher education are safeguarded and enhanced. It reviews the performance of institutions by auditing the way in which each institution manages the overall quality and standards of its provisions, and by reviewing academic standards and the quality of teaching and learning in each subject area.

A reliable way of judging a university is by the number of points (from a maximum of 24) it has been awarded by the QAA in the department of your interest. A university that has been awarded at least 22 out of 24 points may be rated as excellent.

Entry requirements depend on the course and Institution you choose. Proven academic excellence and/or work experience is sometimes a pre-requisite for courses such as MBAs.
Majority of universities in the world require you to possess a minimum of 2-3 years of managerial work experience. However, some universities have a MBA course for which recent graduates without work experience are also eligible.
You may also be required to take an English language test such as the IELTS or TOEFL before receiving an unconditional offer from an Institution/university. Acceptable scores are around IELTS 6.5 or above or 230 in TOEFL for MBA courses. However, these exams may be waived depending on your past scores and proficiency in the English language in some countries. For VISA purposes, it is advisable to take the exam.
Part-time courses at universities are only open to local students. International students can obtain visas only for full-time study.
Yes, you can. You may work up to 20 hours a week during term and full-time during vacations. However, postgraduate students usually prefer to limit their part-time work hours to accommodate the demands of their courses. For more information on part-time work and earnings, please see Services.
It all depends on your choice of course, institution and location which determine the cost of study in the country. In general, science (including medical clinical studies) and business courses are more expensive than arts courses. For detailed information, please see Services.
Although most universities do not have a formal date for closing of applications, students should apply as early as possible, specially if they seek any form of financial assistance. It also gives you more time to organise your travel documents, accommodation and various pre-departure arrangements. Thus, students looking forward to starting in September should apply by February/ March.
Yes, countries like Canada, New Zealand etc give you the work permit after completing your course but there are some norms to be followed.
