The students with a lot of dreams in their eyes for going abroad to study are often cheated. It is very important to understand the entire scenario of going abroad and studying. There are many universities in Canada or the foreign countries which attract international students promising them seats in good colleges because of scholarships. These universities are low-ranked and have agents in India who show a wrong picture to the students and their families, by promising a bright future and scholarships throughout the course.
The Trap! Immigration Agents exploit your ignorance
The students who are really ambitious and are looking for a good opportunity to go for higher studies in a foreign country are often not aware of the facts clearly. This is the major reason why they get trapped. You must have heard of many cases in your neighborhood for sure, where the student was promised a scholarship and admission to a good college abroad, but the child had to return after a year as he couldn’t take care of all his expenses in the foreign land.
The sole reason for incidents like this is the lack of research from the students and parents. The agents who are involved with these kinds of gimmicks are experienced and smart. They easily fool the students and trap them with their fake promises. The agents get a substantial commission from the underrated universities which in the name of scholarships are only providing grants to the students for a couple of semesters. The students get to know the truth only when they actually reach college.
The problems faced by the students and their families!
It is too late to do anything when the student has already joined the college. The only option that the students are left with is to work while studying, most of the time illegally. If they can survive the high costs of food and lodging, they can pay the high fees. The parents are equally burdened with the truth. If they are not able to handle the high costs, the student has to return back. They lose a year plus the hard-earned money. Arranging funds that one is not prepared for, becomes a big problem.
Parents need to understand that the scholarships are mostly given by very good colleges. Globally recognized top universities are the ones that offer scholarships based on genuine academic excellence. They also select students for scholarships based on great skills and leadership qualities. Universities that are not renowned and often low-ranked are mostly only trying a honey trap.
The right solution- to stay protected from immigration frauds!
The technology has provided a lot of search options. Parents and students should research everything in advance before meeting the agents. If they have doubt about what is being told to them, they must not proceed with the guidance. Contacting the college authorities can also be considered to learn about the actual picture that the agents portray.
The scholarships or initial grants are offered to the students to the tune of $13000 to $ 15000. The amount is good but the interest calculations must also be done before finalizing the admission. No matter what all discounts or scholarships are provided to the students who join internationally. They eventually pay more than the local students. It is the responsibility of the students and parents alike, to search for all the details before making the final decision. Beware of the fraud agents and you will never go wrong!
