In an era of competition, as is today, one is constantly aiming to better the best. The lure to attain international education is always a predominant thought at the back of the mind of most students, but the focus so far has mostly been to study abroad after graduation.
However, such facilities are now available even at undergraduate levels where institutes collaborate with foreign universities to make foreign degrees available to students. It goes without saying that a student needs to be sure of the credentials of both the institute in India an abroad.
Collaborated courses popular among students
There are several engineering colleges in Mumbai (and in India) that have been instrumental in building rewarding careers for its students, who are opting for collaborated courses with universities across the globe.
These collaborations which began several years ago, have gained in strength and popularity with scores of students opting for the same for better prospects.
- For engineering aspirants there are multiple opportunities available namely Penn State University, USA offering a B.S in Information Science & Technology (IST), Rutgers university, USA and California state university, USA both offering B.S in Computer Science, Aston University UK, offering BSc in Software Engineering and University of Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada offering BS in Computer Information System (CIS).
- For students opting for a career in management, there are again multiple University tie-ups. University of Toledo, Ohio state offers a BBA degree. University of South Carolina offers B.S. in Business Administration, Penn State University offers a BS in Business, and Royal Roads University, Canada offers BBA in Sustainability and International Business.
Colleges offering collaborative Courses
The courses panning full four academic years with 2 years in India and 2 years abroad, are a perfect example of cultural mix in education.
“It’s a nice fusion of the best of both the worlds. The two years in India grooms the students to withstand the sudden exposure to the two years abroad. They are easily able to adapt themselves through this transition in a gradual way.
There are several colleges in India that helps you make the transition easy and smooth.
“Right from the time our daughters enrolled into the program we have been plagued by inner fears, Vidyalankar has helped us understand and quell each little fear. The hand holding is just perfect, and we have every right to say we made the best choice for our children,” says a parent who sent both his daughters to Toledo through the these collaboration prorams.
An exuberant student at Penn State says, “The collaboration program with Penn State is one of its kind. What attracted me was the blend of two cultures and education system, I feel the Penn state course is the best fusion of technology and Management.
The prospect of leaving the warm comforts of home land and opting for courses abroad can be truly intimidating. We understand these apprehensions and ensure a smooth journey. The entire two years here before they go abroad is spent in grooming them in a special way by simulating the US educational system. Since the students travel to their chosen destinations in groups, there is an added benefit of warmth and sharing. So they move into the arena of opportunity and growth to achieve global success.
