EDEX Team shortlists the Universities as per the following criteria:
Ranking of Institution:
Although the ranking methodology varies and it differs as per the ranking institution, it does provide an insight into the quality of Institution. We always keep it in our foresight while selecting the Universities.
Accreditation of the Institution:
This is amongst the most important factor in selection of the universities. It reflects the quality of institution and recognition of degree. EDEX ensures that we apply to only recognized, well accredited institutions.
Opportunities for Scholarships/Assistantships:
Many universities offer Scholarships/ Assistantships/Tuition Waiver for the students. We always inform the same to the students and inform them about the procedures for it.
Safety is paramount and a major worry for students and parents. We ensure that all the City, university and nearby areas are safe and don’t have any history of violence.
Internships gives the students to get real time work experience in foreign country the student’s areas of expertise. Many universities have a tie-up with industry wherein they collaborate to provide the same.
Opportunities for Part Time Jobs:
Most of the students look for an opportunity to work part-time while studying. Part time is allowed only on campus in USA, so we look for campuses which are large enough to have opportunities for on campus jobs. Other Countries offer off-campus jobs, so ideally we focus on locations which have opportunities for it.
Feedback from Existing Students and Alumni:
It’s always the best way to know firsthand about a particular institution. We ensure that we are in touch with existing students who are studying there and give real-time feedback to prospective students.
We provide the information about the prevailing weather conditions over there as many students aren’t able to tolerate extreme cold.
