Do You Want To Study Abroad But Don’t Have The Right Papers? Take Advantage Of The Foundation Year!
Do you dream of attending university abroad but you still don’t have the papers in order? Don’t despair: have you ever heard of the Foundation Year? Perhaps this is the right solution.
The reasons why you may not be ready, perhaps they are multiple but it is not a bad idea to postpone your departure for a year or so. Do not you believe it? Pay attention and listen a little.
Studying abroad: how long it takes
Studying abroad, attending university, is an experience that can change your life. Feeling ready does not mean being: there are many factors that can affect the departure and determine the failure of an experience. For this reason, sometimes, being told by the University where you applied for a big “no”, can only be good.
It is not a sentence made: the time well spent to obtain the results necessary to reach a goal is never wasted time.
Abroad there is a tendency to have a conception of time that is a little different from ours: optimizing years means for many foreigners finding the right way to acquire skills. And to study overseas it is not necessary to have a predefined period: what matters, in truth, is the result and if to reach the best of your possibilities you will take more, it will matter little.
This is not the case in India where students are rushing to pass exams. The students are scrambling to finish the University or the school within the scheduled time but they do not have the clear ideas or the necessary competences to continue their journey conscientiously or with common sense.
So if you’re wondering how long it takes to be able to go abroad to study, know that the correct answer is “the right one for you”.
How to optimize time if you are rejected
If you applied to attend university abroad but were rejected, you can see the glass half full and reverse the situation in your favor. Such as? The Foundation Year can be an idea.
The Foundation Year is a sort of sabbatical year that takes you from high school to the American or British University in a conscious manner. If, for example, you do not yet have the language skills to access a foreign university, this can be an interesting way to improve the language level and try the following year to be admitted. So why demoralize and not try?
Furthermore, it must be said that in Great Britain the Universities themselves administer the Foundation Year, thus guaranteeing the students the achievement of the votes necessary for admission but in the USA this study abroad program, called Transfer Program, takes place mainly in the Community College. In this way, students earn credits that allow them to enter Bachelor’s Degree courses in the second or third year.
Attending the Foundation Year is therefore advantageous. At the end of this journey, you are better prepared, if not even suitable. Underestimating the linguistic or emotional problems can be a mistake. Don’t do it and don’t see rejection as a defeat.
It is nothing but a way, perhaps a bit harsh, to put you to the test and induce you to truly realize your dream!
