“Maturity, independence, responsibility and the need to prove his mettle in this world is what Singapore has taught him.” Yet another story of a parent whose child went to Singapore Management University and has grown into a young, ambitious and conscientious man. Thank you Mrs. Jhanwar for sharing your experiences!
We want to know what parents think about global education, what experiences they have had and how their children have changed. India has a good and affordable education system, then why should one study abroad? Listen to what Mrs. Shobha Agarwal has to say, whose children have studied in UK and Germany.
Meet our US-bound Art & Design student, Yashvi Goel, 2023 cohort of Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD).
Yashvi got accepted by Parsons, the #3 design school in the world. But she decided to go to Savannah College of Art & Design where she got admitted to the exact course she wanted to do, Production Design. She chose what was best fit for her.
Yashvi advises future applicants to not wait until the last minute to work on applications, a mistake she made. It’ll save you from much stress and will enable you to submit the perfect application.
“Network, network, network!” was Anneysa Ghosh’s advice to students at our this year’s Coffee and Conversation round. During her years at the University of York she embraced every chance to connect with people, volunteering to help them out. This way she gained precious work experience and boost her CV. “Think about what kind of impression it gives if you have worked for a mayor of a big foreign city”, she advised and pointed out that infact in many cases, she even got paid back for her free work later, through “real” job offers and a network which helped her to establish herself as a successful business woman.
Dr. Hans-Martin Kunz, former lecturer of Social Anthropology, told us about the traps of intercultural communication. “Everyone makes mistakes while staying in a foreign country, so don’t be afraid to make any. Important is that you communicate as much as possible with people. Only, try not to address your western professor as “Sir”!
Those who made it to the event reported that they got a lot of new insight and advice. The evening was well received by everyone and students thanked us for hosting it.
See you again next year for a Coffee & Conversation!
