4 Myths of Studying Abroad at Top Ranked Universities
Myth 1: "Studying at a top university is only for the academically exceptional."
Studying abroad is an opportunity for students of all backgrounds to gain international experience and broaden their horizons, and not just for those with good academic records. There are some of the best universities in Europe that take into account the student's overall profile and motivation in the admissions process, not just academic grades.

Myth 2: "It's too expensive to study at a top university abroad."
Top ranked universities may have higher tuition fees, but they often offer generous scholarships, grants and financial aid for students with good profiles. If you are looking for the best university for your profile, the chances of getting a place at European universities are higher than in other parts of the world. Tuition fees at top European universities are reasonable compared to universities in the US, Canada or Australia. Don’t let the high fees stop you from applying to the best. We will help you explore different scholarship opportunities at top European universities.
Myth 3: "The courses at a top university can be too difficult."
Top-ranked universities provide excellent academic support, resources, and advising to ensure that students can succeed in their chosen courses. If you have the motivation and are willing to adapt to the advanced teaching methods and classroom culture abroad, you can prepare to have a rewarding experience at a top university. During the advising process, our advisors will help you understand and determine if you are ready to meet the standards of top universities and how to prepare for the transition after you are admitted to a top university.
Myth 4: "Admission requirements at top universities are too strict."
Top universities value diversity and actively recruit talented students from around the world. They have special admissions processes and support systems for international applicants. Start early to build your profile to meet their requirements and procedures. You cannot generalize about the admission requirements at top universities; you must decide on a case-by-case basis, depending on the country, college, and program, and match them with the student’s overall academic profile. If you are seeking admission to a top college, you should take some calculated risks and use some hedging options with the help of an experienced consultant.
