Question & Answer
How much will it cost to study abroad?
The cost to study abroad depends on length of course, nature of program, travelling cost and cost of living in that particular country. Some student visas also require you to have certain funds in your bank account. Many students choose to carry out part-time employment alongside their studies to support their living and/or socialising costs. However, there are restrictions on the hours you are allowed to work to ensure you don’t lose your academic focus. Schedule a counselling session with us to know more about this, you can schedule a call with the owner of Vision International, here: https://calendly.com/mrunali/now
What if I can’t afford the course fees to study abroad?
There are scholarships and study grants available with several universities to help you fund your study. The amount and availability varies by the level of study and institution.

Using an accredited and trusted agent, like Vision International, can help reduce the strain of selecting the right course & university in another country, applying and preparing to fly.

Your career prospects will benefit from your experience of studying, living and socializing abroad.
