Should students look beyond top universities and metro cities while deciding to study abroad?

There are various things to consider while choosing a college. There are various points relate to education both India and abroad. We, at Seven Seas Education Consultancy believe that one should expand the horizons while opting for colleges abroad.

There are various reasons to believe so. It definitely isn’t all encompassing to to just go for higher ranked metropolitan centric colleges while zeroing on a course and university. Our long standing experience in the field of education overseas and seeing dreams and aspirations find the right flight to soar. We would like to throw light upon how necessary it is to consider the necessary aspects of the colleges that aren’t exactly situated in the metros and how they can be a life changing decision for our students.

Off radar colleges generally have many perks that are generally overlooked by half information and impulsive decisions to secure a college seat.

These are:

Better acceptance rates: The acceptance rates in colleges beyond metros are generally better as the competition is positively manageable. A decent score in competitive exams is given full respect and acceptability whilst on the other side the students are compelled to keep struggling even if they are smart and have high scores.

Better growth opportunities: Further career gets catapulted with such a choice as off metro colleges help the individuals get better chances to secure career security. There is always going to be an increased hand at lucrative job and career options during the course time and much after it. This is a power that an individual cannot get with the competition in the metropolis.

Serenity and Peace: Off metro colleges are a dreamland for people who want to keep away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Giving them the joys and advantages of a peaceful and fresh start.

Warm people: People in the off metro college locations are welcoming and empathetic. They are very accepting to the students and make the most to make them feel at home. They not only give them the advantage of having the essential part of being one with the community but also the ability to make that place a bit like themselves.

We thus believe that all the students aspiring to study abroad should also consider the options of studying outside the conventional metropolitan centers and seek the options of going a little in the outskirts and see the life altering impacts it will make to them.


Should every student be concerned about post study work visa? choice of university should depend upon work visa or passions?

Every students wants the best exposure when it comes to studying abroad. They want to test the waters everywhere and see whats in store for them. The expansive knowledge available along the globe is tested by many factors. There are many things that the students have in mind when it comes to their choice of Universities abroad. Some of which are, the country, the course, the curriculum, the college, the level of acceptance in the country, the food, the cost of living, the people and further opportunities.

Most often than not there is a case where the student looks for one single most deciding factor while choosing a college or a University, that is there want and need to continue to stay abroad even when the course has ended.

This, they supplement with the idea of securing a work visa as soon as their student visa expires in order to stay in the country and discover further opportunities. But we, at Seven Seas Education Consultancy with our long standing expertise in successful education projects abroad would like to refute this idea.

In fact we believe the ideal way to study out is to find where your passion lies. It might be a particular place, it might be a specific course and it might be a a college of choice. But one should never just consider the top universities abroad because there is eventually much more that is going to be necessary beyond a name.

These are the few reasons we request our students to expand their horizons:

1) More experience: There is always a better chance of securing more opportunities when you expand the horizons to inculcate choices apart from the college you want.

2) Better interpersonal relationships: There are better bonds forged when you meet people in fresh settings in a place where you really want to be, leaving apart the pressure of securing a brand name in college.

3) Better chances of acceptance: Going to a college where you feel the rank  might not be amongst the top categories but nonetheless there is the liberty of having a brighter chance to secure a seat, would give you a positive start in catapulting your career.

These reasons are sure enough to prove that college ranks shouldn’t be the only deciding factor when it comes to choosing a college, instead it should be passion that should drive you.
