A growing number of Bangladeshi students are going abroad in their quest for world-class degrees to have the skills and confidence, which will put them on a par with their global peers when it comes to employment. It is important to have a plan at least one year in advance to pursue higher education
abroad. Because there is a difference in education, cost, admission, language requirements in each country, a student has to decide which country he/she wants to go to achieve the degree first. After selecting the country, it is necessary to decide which of the subjects can be studied in a city in combination with favorite subjects and financial ability.
MACES, a leading education consultancy firm in Bangladesh, hosted an Applications Day to facilitate applications for study abroad in the UK, USA, Canada, Japan, and Australia for the upcoming session. The event took place at the Daily Star Centre, on Friday 24 th January from 3 pm to 6 pm. Participation at the event was free of cost but students were encouraged to register online. Students who wish to apply came with their documents and placed applications at the event after directly meeting university officials. More than 500 students participated in the event.
Interested students and parents meet with officials representing six universities in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan, gaining a clearer understanding of the previous and subsequent actions of the application by answering questions on various issues. A discussion meeting with journalists was held afterward to discuss these issues.
Rouham Manzoor, Managing Partner of MACES thanked everyone on the closing session saying, "We have helped over 5,000 students from over 25 countries to get foreign degrees from reputed universities. Events like these are organized for paving the way for more Bangladeshi students to achieve their dream of studying abroad. Guiding them throughout their study period and afterward to achieve a successful career is one of our specialties."
Most universities around the world require an English language proficiency test for those whose native language is not English.
IELTS is the most commonly used and accepted international standardized test for that. On the other hand, most universities in the USA prefer TOEFL. SAT is a basic requirement for undergrad education all around the USA.
