ACADEMIC CONSULTANCY

After a well round education here locally, we feel it to be waste of talent and labour if these young and exuberant minds are not tested. It is quite pointless to have such a well round background if it does not lead them to the top institutions. That is why we here at InCIS are there to help you every step of the way in order for admission into these top schools. InCIS will provide thorough academic counseling on a one-on-one basis. The applicant must provide the following:


Documents to be submitted:

1. Academic Certificate(s)
• O Level
• A Level
2. Mark Sheet(s)
3. School transcripts from class 9 up to 12
4. Teacher’s Recommendation(s)
5. Extra Curricular Activities with supporting document(s)
6. SAT / TOEFL / IELTS score(s)


InCIS will provide:

1. University related information such as:
a. Financial information such as tuition
b. Lodging information
c. Scholarship and aid related information
d. Any other relevant information


2. After careful evaluation of your documents and one-on-one counseling, we hope to provide you with a shortlist of best-fit institutions according to the student’s qualifications and caliber.

3. We will also provide assistance in preparing documents for application to the institution. These might include help in filling out the various forms and prepare documents such as recommendations from instructors.

4. One of the prime factors in the admission process is the essay writing. It expresses the applicant’s views and English proficiency and is an integral part of admission to such institutions. We at InCIS will be providing assistance in preparing the perfect essay for you.

Besides all the above, InCIS will also provide all kinds of assistance regarding the standardized tests that are required for admission into foreign institutions. These may include SAT, TOEFL or IELTS.

The universities do have rakings, but we recommend not placing too much weight and attention to such statistics, as a lower ranked institution maybe well renowned or suited for your particular area of study.

  1. What is the difference in the tuition and living expenses between the countries?

Depending on whether you are in USA, Canada, UK or Australia, the tuition and living expenses can vary widely. A private institution is always more expensive than a public one. Tuition can also vary depending on length of the program. The living costs also depend on the city in which you stay and the lifestyle you follow. In general, American universities are the most expensive.

  1. Are scholarships available? If so, where can I get further details on this matter?

Yes, these universities do offer a wide range of scholarships for international students but are very competitive. We recommend applying for need-based financial aid to these institutions instead. InCIS staff can help you in this regard.

In order to work part-time, students must obtain a work permit first. In order to get one, the applicant must be registered as a full-time student of the university. On obtaining the permit, they can work as long as they don’t exceed the allotted time (usually 20 hours/week).

  1. Do the institutions abroad have lodging/housing facilities?

 

Yes. The universities abroad usually have housing facilities for its students. Sometimes, the universities also guarantee housing for all its’ first year students who are newcomers. You can arrange for housing after being accepted into an institution. InCIS staff would help you with this matter.

  1. If so, do they come with private washrooms?

The residences available are usually shared rooms and do not come with private washrooms, so they might have to be shared with a few other tenants. If students find this to be unacceptable, they can contact the local housing authority for alternate arrangements (if available) or rent a residence off campus.

 

  1. When does the academic year begin?

Depends on where you apply to. The American, Canadian and UK timings are similar and both start in August/September with few admissions in January as well. The Australian year however, starts in February with a few admissions in July also.

Back to Top

  1. When is the best time to submit the application?

The universities have deadlines for submission of documents. We also recommend applying for the ‘Fall’ term which starts in September for USA, UK and Canada and February for Australia, as international students have a higher chance of admission. We recommend starting on the application at least 6 months prior to the start of the academic year.

 

  1. Is a health check-up required prior to the flight as part of the visa processing?

Depending on where you apply to, a health check-up may or may not be required. Usually though, a check-up is required for Australia, Canada and the USA, but not for the UK.

Back to Top

  1. Can I apply for a science/management faculty even if I don’t have such a background?

Yes, you can do so. The university would allow you to apply to any faculty irrelevant of your previous area of study. We recommend carrying on along the same line as it would be easier to the student to get accustomed to.

  1. Do the universities require an advance deposit for acceptance?

Yes. The universities do require an advance deposit from you once you have accepted their offer of admission as a means of confirmation and assurance.
