Distance education: If you want to study with an Australian institution but can’t leave home for all or part of your course, distance education could be the perfect solution for you. Distance education programs allow you to obtain a qualification from an Australian institution in your home country, or to combine study at home with study in Australia. Australia leads the world in the delivery of distance education programs. Institutions use leading technologies and innovative approaches to deliver programs that can be tailored to meet your needs.

Entry requirements: You should check with the institution of your choice about which courses are offered in distance mode, and their entry requirements.

American College Testing (ACT)

acrApplying for admission in USA for an undergraduate course, you might have to give American College Test ( called “ACT” in short). This in universally accepted by all universities and colleges in USA. The basic objective of this test is to measures a student’s general educational development and capability to complete college level work.

However, giving and getting good score in ACT is just one aspect of getting an admission in your desired university or college, there plenty of other stuffs you need to also consider like Statement of Purposes, Letter of Recommendations and deadlines.

The ACT is not an aptitude test but is related to what a student has learned in his/her high school courses in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. A student should concentrate on practising his high school curriculum.

Basic Facts about Test

  1. When are ACT Exam Held: ACT is held 5 times a year in month of February, April, June, September, October and December.
  2. Eligibility Criteria for ACT:  A candidate must have completed 10+2 from a recognised board.
  3. Apply for ACT:  Registration deadlines fall approximately five weeks before each ACT test date.
  4. Official Website: http://www.act.org/content/act/en.html

Official Test Structure

The ACT has five sections:

  1. English
  2. Reading
  3. Math
  4. Science
  5. Writing (Optional test for a 30 minute writing test which may be required by some colleges)

English

  • Number of Questions: 75 multiple choice questions
  • Time Given: 45 minutes
  • Skills Tested: Tests grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and rhetorical skills

Math

  • Number of Questions: 60 multiple choice questions

Scoring Pattern for ACT

Students will earn one ACT score (1 to 36) on each test (English, Math, Reading and Science) and a composite ACT score, which will be an average of these four tests. The composite score falls between 1 and 36.

If, for example, a student scored 31 on the English, 30 on the Math, 29 on the Reading and 30 on the Science, his/her composite ACT score would be 30.

The ACT includes an optional essay, known as the writing test. If one takes the writing test, he/she will receive a writing test sub-score and a combined English/writing score.

Canadian government eases citizenship process for international students

  • The Canadian government has introduced legislation to reduce the period of physical residency required to apply for Canadian citizenship
  • The new legislation will also restore a provision that allows international students to count time spent studying or working in Canada against that residency requirement
  • The government has also committed to a review of the Canadian Experience Class programme, a key path to permanent residency for international students in Canada

The newly elected government of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has introduced legislation to repeal a number of controversial changes to the Canadian Immigration Act. Under the previous Conservative government, a number of changes to the Act were packaged as Bill C-24 and passed into law in June 2015.

Of particular interest to international students were provisions that made the path to Canadian citizenship more difficult for foreign graduates. One of the key requirements for a citizenship application is physical residency in Canada. Bill C-24 increased the residency requirement from three years to four. But it also eliminated a special provision that allowed 50% of the time spent in Canada on a work or study visa to be counted against that physical residency requirement.

As the University of Toronto’s student newspaper, The Varsity, put it at the time, “The bill states that you must spend at least 183 days in Canada each year for a total of four years to qualify for citizenship. International students spend at least 240 days a year here; most international students are completing a four-year programme. According to these numbers, international students should be eligible for citizenship by the end of their degrees.

In addition to including time spent in Canada on a study or work visa towards the physical residency requirement, Bill C-6 will also reduce the period of physical residency required to apply for Canadian citizenship. It reduces the physical residency requirement from four out of the previous six years to three out of the previous five years.

The Canadian Experience Class and Express Entry

Also of note to international students, the government has committed to review Canada’s Express Entry process, pledging that, “We will make changes to the Canadian Experience Class to reduce the barriers to immigration that have been imposed on international students.”

As we reported last year, it was roughly 2005 when the Canadian government began to introduce policies designed expressly to help talented international students to become permanent residents of Canada. First introduced in 2008, the Canadian Experience Class programme was a notable example in this respect and it is considered to have been an important factor in the significant international enrolment growth that Canada has realized in the years since. Indeed, recent surveys by the Canadian Bureau for International Education have found that roughly half of the international students in Canada intend to apply for permanent residency at some point in the future.

The path to the Canadian Experience Class programme was muddled somewhat in January 2015 by the introduction of a new system called Express Entry. We have written extensively about Express Entry in the past and readers who wish to have additional background are encouraged to review our earlier coverage.

To sum up the mechanics of the programme quickly: anyone applying for permanent residency (via Canadian Experience Class or otherwise) must now first apply via the Express Entry system. All applications are scored within the system, and all applicants that score above a given threshold will receive an “Invitation to Apply” which then allows them to progress to the Canadian Experience Class process (or to another applicable programme under the Express Entry umbrella).

Since the introduction of the Express Entry process, there have been a lot of questions about both the annual immigration quotas allocated to individual programmes, such as the Canadian Experience Class, and also about the scoring system used to rank and select applicants from the Express Entry pool.

While it is not clear what steps the Canadian government may now take with respect to either the Canadian Experience Class or Express Entry, it seems likely that any policy moves designed to open greater opportunities for permanent residency and citizenship for international students would target one or both of the following:

  • immigration quotas associated with key permanent residency programmes relevant to international students, including the Canadian Experience Class; and/or
  • Modifications to the scoring system to better recognize the experience of living, studying, and working in Canada that international students bring to their Express Entry applications.

Again, while it is not yet clear how the Canadian Experience Class will change as a result of the current government review, it seems certain that students, agents, and educators will watch closely for further developments on the file, particularly given its important to the residency and citizenship goals of many foreign students in Canada.

Changes in Malaysian Student Visa — 7th October 2014

Introduction of New Compulsory I-CARD for All International Students

EMGS (Education Malaysia Global Services) has introduced a new I-Card, which can be used as an international student ID Card. This will mean students will not be required to carry their passports from now on. The I-Card was issued free from July 1st until Sept 30th but is now being charged at RM 50 per year.

As such, the EMGS Student Pass Processing Fee will be revised from RM 1,000 to RM 1,050 to include the cost of the card.

All applicants whose applications which are pending submission to the International Students Dept. will be invoiced RM 50 and this needs to be settled when they arrive at HELP.

If the card is lost, the student will need to make a police report and pay RM 50 for a replacement card. The card is valid for 1 year. If students change course or progress to another university, they will have to return the card to HELP to be returned to EMGS. Students will no longer need to carry their passport if they are holding this card. The card is issued by Immigration and is recognized by the Police as well.

For existing students, the I Card will be issued to students upon renewal of visa.

Explore More About Study in Germany

In spring 2014, Lower Saxony will be the last of Germany’s 16 states (known as Länder) to abolish tuition fees for undergraduate students at public universities. Both national and international undergraduate students at public universities in Germany will get free tuition from next year, and will only need to pay a small sum towards administration and other costs per semester (there are two per year).

These low charges certainly help to make Germany attractive as a study destination, with recent figures showing it to be the fourth most popular country for international students (after the US, UK and Australia). And a recent HSBC report puts Germany at the bottom of a table of 13 countries in terms of the cost of studying abroad, with an average cost of just € 4,564 (INR 3.5 Lakhs) per year, breaking down to € 461 (INR 36,000) for fees and € 4,103 (INR 3 Lakhs) for living costs.

Of course these are just averages – the amount it costs to study in Germany depends on variables such as your level of study and how long your course lasts, whether your university is private or public, and which German state you will study in.

Cost of Living in Germany

The cost of living in Germany is more expensive in some areas than others, with average costs ranging from €350 to €1,000 (INR 28,000 to INR 80,000) per month. Rent is cheaper if you’re in a shared flat (average rent of INR 20,000per month) or a student hall of residence (€200 or INR 16,000 per month). The average costs per month, according to Deutsches Studentenwerk, the German National Association for Student Affairs, are: €165 (US$227) for food; €52 (US$72) for clothes; €82 (US$113) for transport; €33 (US$45) for telephone, internet and TV license; €30 (US$41) for work/study materials, and €68 (US$94) for leisure activities.

You won’t need a visa to study in Germany if you’re an EU national or a citizen of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. Otherwise expect to pay around €60 (US$82.62), but there are fee reductions or waivers for Schengen visas. In order to fulfill the visa requirements, you will need to show proof that you have, or have access to, around €8,000 per year (US$11,015).

You will also need health insurance as a pre-condition of registering at a German university. If you’re in the EU or the EEA, there should be a social security agreement between your country and Germany – provided you have public health insurance, you should be covered in Germany as well (full list here). If your health insurance is not valid in Germany, expect to pay between €80 (US$110) and €160 (US$221) per month.

Undergraduate Costs to Study in Germany

Although study in Germany is free for undergraduates at public institutions, there is a charge per semester for enrolment, confirmation and administration – usually around €100 (US$138). There may be an additional charge of around €100 for a “Semesterticket”, which covers public transport expenses for six months. There may also be a long-term fee charge if you exceed the period of study in Germany by more than four semesters, and this could be as much as €800 (US$1,103) per semester.

Most universities in Germany are public. The private institutions have to rely solely on tuition fees for their funding, and charge up to €20,000 (US$27,573) per year as a result.  The University of Witten-Herdecke, for example, charges around €15,000 (US$20,685) for a degree, but offers flexible finance options, giving students the choice whether to pay tuition fees from the start or pay a percentage based on income after graduation.

The Federal Student Financial Aid Program (BAföG: Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz) is available for German nationals and EU students, and even for foreigners under select conditions. Generally this aid is for those under 30 years old, or under 35 for those studying for a master’s degree. But exceptions can be made depending on circumstance. The grant covers basic living and training costs. In addition, the Education Loan provides more funds in the form of a low-interest loan.

Master’s And Postgraduate Costs to Study in Germany

Master’s degrees in Germany are usually free if they are classed as “consecutive” – a continuation of a corresponding bachelor’s degree (again, there is a charge per semester for enrolment, confirmation and administration, plus a Semesterticket). But a “non-consecutive” masters can cost more than €10,000 (US$13,782) per semester, and private institutions can charge up to €30,000 (US$41,345) per year for a master’s.

For example, Germany’s top-ranked institution, the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, lists fees for non-consecutive master’s degrees ranging from €2,050 (US$2,825) per semester for a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering to €6,000 (US$8,268) per semester for a Master of Science in Health Economics.

At PhD level, tuition is once again free at all German institutions – for the first six semesters. Again, you will be required to make a semester contribution of between €150 (US$207) and €200 (US$275) for administration and other costs.

Scholarships in Germany

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD: Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) provides support for German and international students to study abroad, in the form of scholarships for German and international students, academics and researchers.

Study in Australia

Australia now has around 630,000 international students from over 140 countries around the world. They are enrolled in a wide range of disciplines at every level of education, including short-term English language courses, bachelor and masters degrees right through to doctoral degrees.

Whichever course you choose, you’ll experience a unique kind of education. Studying in Australia promotes innovative, creative and independent thinking. You’ll learn to work as part of a team, to communicate effectively with others and to develop the practical skills and intellectual abilities you need for global success.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to use your initiative. Your teachers will encourage you to think of original, practical solutions to real-world problems. Upon graduation, your qualification will make you highly sought after by Australian and international employers.

Industries & Research

Every day throughout the world over a billion people rely heavily on Australian inventions. Every time they drive a car, fly, prepare a meal, use a laptop or Smartphone or spend some time in hospital there is a good chance they are relying on Australian inventions or discoveries. Australian inventions include the very old, such as the boomerang and the woomera, and the very new, such as the scramjet, first fired at the Woomera rocket range. Australians have been leaders in inventions relating to both maritime and aeronautical matters, including powered flight, the black box flight recorder, the inflatable escape slide, the surf ski, the wave-piercing catamaran and the winged keel.

The economy of Australia is a developed, modern market economy with a GDP of approximately US$1.2 trillion. In 2009, it was the 13th largest national economy by nominal GDP and the 17th largest measured by PPP.

Australia still benefits from the wealth on and under its land and seas. Natural resources and energy companies remain well represented on our list of Australia’s 40 biggest companies. BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto, two mining giants, occupy second and fourth places in the list.

The top ten is rounded out by banks, financial services firms, a telecoms group and food retailers. The full 40 spans multinationals in a range of industries, from Fosters, synonymous with beer but whose wine business is now its larger part, to Qantas Airways to Macquarie Bank, which has developed an investment banking niche in large-scale infrastructure and is the world’s largest operator of private toll roads.

Lifestyle

Australians are very friendly and helpful people, with a great sense of humor and a natural ability to tell jokes and play with words. Sometimes they may appear cold because of their “private nature” which has been imported over the past 2 decades, but it is just takes time to “break the ice”, and everything goes well. It means you can talk about any subject, but for more personal matters, things will take a little bit longer to come out in the open.

In reality, Australia is considered one of the most competitive nations on Earth. This covers all areas of life including the work place.

New Rules for International Students from June 2014 in Canada

New rules that aim to strengthen Canada’s status as a study destination of choice for prospective international students will take effect on June 1, 2014. The new regulations will improve services to genuine students, while protecting Canada’s international reputation for high-quality education and reducing the potential for fraud and misuse of the program.

Here is a summary of the changes:

  • Applicants must enrol in and continue to pursue studies in Canada.  Failure to do so could lead to removal from Canada.
  • Study permits will only be issued to successful applicants who are pursuing studies at an educational institution that has been designated to receive international students.
  • Study permits will automatically authorize the holder to work off-campus for up to 20 hours per week during the academic session and full-time during scheduled breaks without the need to apply for a separate work permit.
  • The study permit holder must be pursuing academic, vocational or professional training of six months or more that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate at a designated institution.
  • Only international students who are pursuing studies at a secondary school or at a designated institution may apply for a Co-Op Work Permit if a co-op placement is an integral part of their course of study.
  • Visitors may apply for a study permit from within Canada if they are at the pre-school, primary or secondary level, are on an academic exchange or a visiting student at a designated learning institution, or have completed a course or program of study that is a condition for acceptance at a designated learning institution.
  • A study permit becomes invalid 90 days following the completion of studies unless the foreign national also possesses a valid work permit or another authorization to remain in Canada.
  • Registered Indians who are also foreign nationals may study in Canada without a study permit as they have the right of entry into Canada.

Eligible international graduates will be authorized to work full-time after their studies are completed until a decision is made on their application for a Post-Graduation Work Permit.

Additional Information:

  • Education is the responsibility of the provinces and territories. The educational institutions that will be designated will be determined by provincial and territorial governments in coming months.
  • International students enrolling in courses in Canada that will last six months or less do not need a study permit. This is not changing. Students from countries whose citizens require a visitor visa will still need a valid visitor visa.
  • Study permit holders who are studying at a non-designated institution when the new regulations come into effect will be permitted to complete their program of study, up to a maximum of three years after the regulations take effect.
  • International students who are studying at a non-designated institution and hold either an Off-Campus Work Permit or a Co-Op Work Permit will be permitted to continue to use, and renew if necessary, those work permits until they complete their program of study, up to a maximum of three years after the regulations take effect.
  • Additional operational measures to support transitional regulations will be announced closer to June 1, 2014, when the new rules take effect.
