Realising the importance of acquiring high and rich qualifications, an increasing number of candidates now wish to earn an overseas degree. While the cost of an education may seem overwhelming to some, one can still afford to study abroad without breaking the bank. It is also important to note that the cost of living, currency and tuition vary depending on the location and university of choice. The following aspects should be kept in mind when planning your expenses for an overseas education.

Scholarships:

Scholarships and other forms of financial aid are means of offsetting costs when studying abroad. While some scholarships provide partial assistance, there are others that cover tuition and living expenses. Applying early increases your chances of securing a scholarship. Take the time to scour for scholarships.

Exchange rates:

When looking to study overseas, the best way to get the most out of your home country's currency is to keep yourself updated with the latest rates. This will help you keep track of the amount you will be spending when overseas. Furthermore, Edwise has strong alliance with reputed foreign exchange dealers and ensures that students are offered best rates, along with the chance at an affordable education.

Credit cards:

Cashless forms of payment such as credit cards are widely accepted across countries and are useful for those initial expenses. When choosing a credit card, opt for one that has added benefits and allows for transactions at no hidden or additional costs. Often a credit card can be blocked if there are unusual purchase patterns, therefore it is important that you notify the credit card company of your travel plans before you set off for your education overseas.

Open a local bank account:

Opening a local bank account is a practical option for candidates who opt to study overseas. The reason being, money can be needed at any point of time for reasons small or big. Hence it is always wise to be prepared. A local account safeguards your finances, and allows for easy access to funds and payments without having to worry about exorbitant transaction and withdrawal fees. When choosing a bank, opt for one that fits in with your preferences.

Draw a Budget wisely:

Financial planning becomes very important once you start staying away from your home and that too in a foreign land. Managing expenses and saving money for unforeseen events in the future is of utmost importance. While everyone enjoys the thrill of experiencing life in a new country, it is important that you refrain from unnecessary buys. Creating weekly budgets, and listing items that you require on a monthly basis helps you prioritize your budget and spend wisely. It ensures a smooth and tension free stay.

Paying back your loan:

Student loans can differ in terms of interest rates and terms, and so it is important that you understand how your loan repayment plan works. There are various types of educational loans that are available to candidates at reasonable rates. Set up monthly payment plans to avoid late recurring charges. We at Edwise provide proper and detailed guidance on the various types of educational loans available, and will additionally provide you with an array of nationalized banks that offer loans to students at affordable rates.
