No matter what program of study interests you, you’re sure to find something to meet your needs. The USA is particularly well-known for a large number of non-traditional options for pursuing a master’s degree, such as part-time studies, online programs, and distance learning options.

Step 1: Career and School Selection

Students are prone to following a herd mentality and tend to overlook their strengths and weaknesses. Collegepond works with each student forte, dreams and aspirations and accordingly recommends career opportunities suitable for them.

We have personal sessions with students, we get them to answer a few questions, and based on their answers we try to analyze the most suitable career options for them. This process also helps us understand the student’s strengths and weaknesses and thus helps us assist them in building their profile.

We have helped students with varied interests in arts, science, mathematics, engineering and architecture choose the right program based on the coursework of the program and the research opportunities available in the university.

Step 7: Insurance

When students plan to study abroad, it is essential to acquire appropriate health and travel insurance policies. You will be required by both your school and your host country to have adequate international student insurance when you are visiting. Studying abroad in a foreign land entails a lot of risk. Medical expenses in foreign currency and hospitalization can be quite expensive. A student living alone, outside India might also need visits from family if something goes wrong. Therefore a travel policy covers you for all such eventualities.

Most universities and colleges require their students to purchase international student health insurance for their enrolment period. These requirements can vary depending on your university or college, and can apply to any dependents traveling with you as well. We at Collegepond, will help you to explore and finalize various options for health and travel insurance.

Step 8: Accomodation Services

Finding a suitable accommodation for your study abroad can be a daunting task. It is quite challenging to find a place that is affordable as well as liveable in an unfamiliar and foreign land. There are myriad options available for accommodation such as home-stays, apartments, student dorms etc. Most of the universities do not provide accommodation and in such cases students are responsible for securing their own, independent off campus housing.

It is very important to find the right accommodation for your stay abroad as accommodation is one of the factors that can lead to great success of a student. Various activities that can easily help the performance of a student are carried out in the accommodation setting such as working on projects and assignments and preparing for exams. Also the right accommodation will ensure the safety and security of the student. Therefore, we organize events to help our students network, and choose their future roommates. We also help our students connect with students who are currently studying in the universities abroad to help them find apartments.

We organise pre-departure sessions wherein we answer all the students’ queries and help them to prepare for their student life in a new country.

During our briefing we also provide information and advice students on matters such as ticketing, foreign exchange, travelling, opening a bank account and international calling cards. Students are also given the opportunity to network with other students, including alumni, current students and future classmates. Through our pre-departure services we aim to ease the students apprehensions and concerns and ensure that their stay abroad is a pleasant and a memorable one.

Step 10: Networking

Networking is about making contacts and building relationships, and it is easiest to start networking with individuals that you know or with people with whom you have an existing connection. Most alumni feel a strong enough connection to their Alma Mater and are easiest to network with. This will allow you to begin building relationships in your industry of choice, ask for new contacts, and gather information and tips about the industry. Remember, alumni have volunteered to serve as a resource. They are not there to “give” you a job. Use them appropriately by making the building of a relationship your priority.

At CollegePond, our goal is to ensure that you achieve your desired career goals.  Collegepond’s counseling services do not end with obtaining a visa.  Our assistance continues even when you are in the US.  We assist you by reviewing your resumes/cover letters and connecting you with our alumni working at various organizations.  So if you need an introduction to a company, just email us and we will help you.
