Study Abroad- Do’s and Don’ts

You can definitely have the time of your life while studying abroad. One gets exposed to new cultures, customs, traditions, rituals, religions, foods, art, media and most importantly new languages. Studying abroad can open unlimited opportunities for an individual and living thousands miles away from home can make an individual more responsible and confident. Studying and working abroad with culturally diverse people also enhances an individual’s leadership skills which is very crucial to survive in our ever changing world. And indeed it’s no big secret that graduates from Australia or Canada are given more preference and it has been reported that Australian graduates are known as the “hot favorites” among the international employers. As Australian education system can be called as the epitome of effectiveness and success, so the international employers are said to be hiring Australian graduates without giving a second thought. Studying abroad can definitely change your life for good but there are a couple of things that students should keep in mind. So we present you the “do’s” and “don’ts” of studying abroad. So grab a cup of coffee, tea or any drink of your choice and read on.


  1. Step out of your comfort zone and have the time of your life. Try as many new things as you can. Go bungee jumping, skydiving or river rafting. Our boring lives indeed need a dose of adventure at times.

2. It is difficult to escape homesickness once you’re miles away from your home. But trying to stay updated with what’s happening back home via social media is a rather dumb idea, it will result in more homesickness let alone solving the issue. You can exchange all sorts of gossips with your friends and family members once you get back home.


3. Although it’s like a sigh of relief when you find people belonging to your nation abroad and indeed you get along with them a lot better than the rest but do meet and interact with the locals from another country as well. They can tell you the best about the country, its culture, politics and social life.


4. Indeed studying abroad can be a bit expensive but believe me it’s worth it. A degree from Australia or Canada can catapult you to a life-long successful career. So stop worrying too much about the costs of studying abroad because at the end of the day you’ll be proud of your decision.


5. Once you’re in a new country, it’s important that you take steps to learn the national language of that particular country or any other language that you’re newly made friends are fluent in. It always works as a bonus when employers get to know that the candidate can speak in more than 2-3 languages.

For heaven sake ! Don't pack too much !!

6. Please don’t pack too much and don’t carry too many suit cases. If you’re going abroad for studies, so definitely you’ll be there for a couple of years. So don’t pack those things that can you easily purchase in the host country. Don’t pack stuff like shampoos, soaps, tooth paste, hair gels, hair sprays etc. You never know you may find your new favorite hair gel in the host country.

Don't forget to capture your precious moments in the camera lens.

7. I know this one will going to sound a bit crazy but yes take as many photos as you can while you’re abroad. Take photos when you’re at Sydney Opera House or having a group study session with your friends. Because you know we all love to brag at times :P. On a serious note we all love to relive those precious moments once we pass them. So a photo album can send you to a great nostalgia trip anytime you want.


8.  Indeed we all need a break from our hectic lives but partying every night is definitely not a smart choice. It’s very important that you make a formal budget plan that how you’re going to spend your money. Drinks and drugs may not only going to work as a hindrance in your career but one can also lose his credibility in front of his teachers and colleagues for good.

Why Australia ?

Let’s put first things first. If I just tell you that Australia is one of the best countries around the globe when it comes to education, jobs and residing. You might not believe it. So now let me just give you a short sneak peek of this “heaven on earth” and then I’ll give you the liberty to decide it by your own.


Being known as the sixth largest country on planet earth when it comes to area. This country has been going strong , has worked hard and still riding high. The country is also known as one of the most highly developed and most wealthiest countries of the world. It is also said that Australia is the world’s 12th biggest economy. Australia excels in a number of departments that includes : health, education, business liberty, economic liberty, quality of life, political rights and the protection of civil freedom. It is also said that people who even visit Australia for a very short span of time or for vacations usually fall in love with this remarkable country and decides to extend their trip or even go applying for permenant citizenship.


Nothing can beat Australia when it comes to education or higher studies. In Australia students are not relegated to only a few courses and degrees but instead they have a wide variety of options in front of them. Usually in Pakistan students would either go for a MBBS degree, B.Com, BBA or Engineering. But here students have the liberty to do what they feel like. There are zillions of courses and degrees that are offered to students that can take them to an entirely different world. It has been reported that Australian graduates are the hot favorites of international employers. As Australian education system can be called as the epitome of effectiveness and success, so the international employers are said to be trusting Australian graduates blind foldedly. Even Australia provide expert advice other countries that are anxious to improve their education system and standards.


Not only this country offers incredible educational services, this country is also humble to everyone regardless of the person’s ethnic origin, race, class or color. A number of Pakistani, Indian and Srilankan employees are working in multi-nationals. A good amount of them have also started their own businesses there and plan to indulge in more entrepreneurial ventures.


Ofcourse, we all need a break from our hectic lives and give little peace and relaxation to the most important organ of our bodies that is “our brain”. So if you really need a break from your busy life. So Australia can definitely provide you that. Australia is a lively, young, enthusiastic and hospitable country. It’s also famous for its beautiful and breath taking locales, the exuberant night life and what not. This country is more like a small world in itself that offers everything that is the desire or the requirement of a perfect life.


Stop waiting…. Live the life that you have always dreamed about. We can definitely help you in turning all your fantasies into a reality.
