Being a student is like walking in the fog; you just never know what is going to be with you when it clears. But, that is child’s play compared to being a student in a foreign country, where you are simply trying to herd cats.
And that is not an exaggeration, especially if a student has been trying to pull several tricks at once, like trying to take time out for a job, attending classes, studying for the said classes, being social, and trying to get some sleep. While all the other things are a part and a parcel of being a student, taking responsibility and getting a job at such a tender age might be a bit cruel. Continue reading
The best thing about being a student is that you can actually get away with anything (definitely not referring to the sale of crystal meth or drag racing here), and not even feeling bad about it. You can live your life in makeshift tents and cars, using hand-me-downs and cheap dresses; you can even eat ramen noodles and no one will judge you. But, if you are exceedingly smart, you can also get away with living in a palace without even a single penny in your pocket (again, not referring to breaking and entering).
Finding an accommodation is a big issue for international students living abroad. The dorm rooms have a fee and renting an apartment means paying the rent; so, what should you do? Work for your landowners and save on paying rent. Not getting it? Continue reading
Like many students from Asia, Chinese students are ambitious towards getting their higher education in the USA; the only problem is the cost. Leaving your own country and moving overseas is not something that comes cheaper: there are tickets to pay for, visa to apply for, living expenses and then there’s food, clothes, books, transit etc., and most of all there is a price for education itself. Ridiculously costly tuition fee, we might as well add, may shock you a great deal.
Hold your horses though, no need to be all disappointed because the good news is here. Chinese students still have some good opportunities, waiting for them in the USA. Continue reading
Moving to another country – the USA in particular – is not a picnic. Granted that there will be a number of opportunities to take, new friends to make, good memories to collect as well as places to visit. Moreover, there is a great academic record to maintain. But, for a moment in time, everything gets lost in the chaos of bewilderment when an international student experiences strangeness, new surroundings, new rules and pure terror due to such a massive change in their lives.
But, we cannot simply ignore the wisdom of the wise author who once said, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” If you have managed to make it this far, what are a few more challenges for you? You certainly did not cross mountains and oceans to take half-measures and be out of it. In fact, you are in a foreign country, far away from home, so that you can excel at your studies and break all those barriers that come in your way. One of these hurdles is writing, something which is quite more challenging for international students, as it is for native ones. But, a problem is only a problem when it has a solution, and the solution for this is attending book writing courses. Shall we explain why you should do this? Continue reading
These are usually international students who are the most eager to work while they go to school. And for good reason too; it is great to have the work experience in a practical environment as you learn and adjust in an entirely new place that you are living in now. The great news is that there are tons of benefits to be enjoyed from a career in sales for college-going students.
You Get to Be Yourself
Sure, arriving in a new country, you are already under a lot of pressure.

It is important for you to be true to yourself, so that you are able to build trust between you and your potential customers. Continue reading

If You Think Education Is Expensive, try Ignorance – Derek Bok
The reason for quoting Bok is because his words have a double meaning to them with regards to what we are going to talk about, and by all means, delve deeper into that meaning. If Oscars were ever given to people for whining s, they would certainly go to the students. Hear us out as it might sound familiar; “Going abroad for higher studies costs a fortune. My family is too poor – I can’t afford studying in the USA – It was my lifelong dream to study abroad, but life happened to come in the way – life is sooo unfair – Donald Trump is such a racist.”
To tell you the truth, it certainly seems like the students have not been doing their researches right; the whining is the result. If you really and seriously wish to head overseas, but think that all hope is lost, you are going to thank your lucky stars today for coming across this article. As hard as it might be to believe, there are many ways and opportunities through which you can get a degree in the USA, and spend only as much as you would on buying a used car. Continue reading
