Education is a process and result of assimilation of systematized knowledge, skills and abilities. In the process of education, there is a transfer from generation to generation of knowledge of all those spiritual riches that mankind has developed, the assimilation of the results of social and historical knowledge reflected in the sciences of nature, society, technology and art, as well as the mastery of labor skills and abilities.
Education is a necessary condition for preparing for life and work, the main means of introducing a person to culture and mastering it; the foundation for the development of culture. The main way of getting an education is studying in various educational institutions. Self-education, cultural and educational work, participation in social and labor activities also play a significant role in the assimilation of knowledge and the mental development of a person.
Studying abroad is too expensive. Indeed, studying abroad costs money, and a lot (especially when it comes to prestigious educational institutions). But the specialists of a professional agency, who are well-versed in the world of existing educational programs and current discounts, will help you not only choose the right university, but also save, for example, on additional costs. Talented students with good command of foreign languages can receive a grant or scholarship (especially for master's programs), and in some countries (UK, Australia, Ireland, Canada), students are eligible to earn money.
Our certificates are not listed abroad. This is not true. For example, the Russian certificate of secondary education and diplomas of educational institutions accredited by the state (Moscow State University, MGIMO, MEPhI, MIPT, MAI, Moscow State Technical University, Bauman, etc.) are recognized in many countries (and university diplomas are highly rated, especially in the field exact and natural sciences). School graduates before entering a foreign university must first complete their studies (education in schools abroad lasts 12 years, the programs of educational institutions also differ somewhat, therefore there is a certain gap in the level of knowledge of graduates). For this, there are Studienkolleg courses (Germany), Foundation (Great Britain, Australia), etc.
I pay for my studies on a regular basis, which means I have a diploma. Educational institutions value their reputation, so you still have to study (and diligently!), And behave accordingly, since for some abuses (fights, systematic omissions, and - the most flagrant violation - hints on exams) you will be expelled from school or university.
Education prices for foreigners are the same as for local residents. Not necessary - the pricing policy depends on the administration of the educational institution. After all, foreign universities have the right to set higher tuition fees for foreigners.
It is best to go to Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, etc. Of course, enrolling in the most prestigious institution is quite tempting. But it should be remembered that those wishing to take the exam at the above-mentioned universities are subjected to a very strict selection. For example, if you want to go to Harvard, you must be prepared for the fact that at the interview they will ask the question: What are your special services to society? And it is unlikely that your confused silence will be read as an intelligible answer. Therefore, it is best to choose a university, perhaps not so well-known, but with a good reputation for the faculty you are interested in. It should be remembered that in almost all higher educational institutions certain entrance requirements will be presented to you, which you must meet (for example, knowledge of English at the level of 550 points on the TOEFL test, having good marks in the certificate, etc.).
A foreign diploma will open the way for me to a highly paid job. This is by no means necessary. Of course, if you studied at Oxford, the advantages are obvious, which cannot be said about other foreign universities (which, as elsewhere, are divided into more and less prestigious). It should be remembered that the employer will evaluate not only your diploma, but also you as a person (at an interview or during special testing). In addition, keep in mind that there are specialties with good career prospects and specialties in which employment is problematic (both abroad and at home). For example, dentists have a much higher employment prospect than a person who has mastered the humanities or social sciences.
Foreigners are taken to foreign universities for the sake of money. This is not entirely true, although in some countries (where local residents do not pay at all or pay purely symbolically) a significant source of income for an educational institution is money received from foreigners as tuition fees. But a more significant factor is internationalization in the world of education. The presence of representatives of different nationalities among students leads to mutual enrichment of cultures, understanding of the peculiarities of a different style of thinking, etc.
It is unrealistic to get a scholarship at a foreign university. Misconception. It should be remembered that there are several types of scholarships at universities abroad:
for students who have demonstrated high achievements in studies, sports or arts (merit-based);
for students who have declared (and justified) that they need financial assistance;
for representatives of certain national or social groups.
A student within a master's program may also qualify for a scholarship by completing a specified number of hours of helping a professor in teaching, teaching assistment, or research assistment. But it is really very difficult to earn a scholarship on bachelor's programs.
The student is paid a scholarship. In fact, in foreign universities, a student who has received the right to a scholarship is simply asked for less money for tuition - no cash is given out.
Upon graduation, you must immediately receive an MBA. Training for an MBA (Master of Business Administration) degree requires work experience (about two years). Therefore, one should not hope to receive an MBA immediately after graduation.
Study abroad is measured in credits - this type of measurement has a lot to do with money. Indeed, the name of the unit used to measure the complexity of the course is credit, but this word has nothing to do with tuition fees. For example, in the United States, the weight of a course in credits can vary from 1 to 5 (1 credit is an easy, most often an introductory course, and 5 is a difficult subject).
