WHAT TO SEE WHEN CHOOSING A COLLEGE


Getting admitted into a course is not easy; one has to pass several stages of the admission procedure such as interview, competitive exams and many more. However, many students drop out from different courses due to various reasons. This not only leads to financial losses but also is a waste of time. So, it’s better to know the course and the university or the college before getting in, because the train ticket to visit is cheaper than dropping out after one term.
Understand the course: First decide yourself what you want to be and then check whether the course can help you with that or not. Many times people who hate Biology wants to become a Doctor, one should understand that it is not possible. There are different combination of subjects too; one should properly understand how the combination would help him/her.
Seek help from Veterans: If you are not clear about your idea of the subject, do not hesitate to talk to someone who has the knowledge of the field. If required, take more suggestions.
Meet your seniors to know more: The products of the university/college are the best ones to tell about the course and the lecturers too. To know more about the lecturers, check their profile.
Inquire about the placement opportunities: This is a very important criterion to judge a university or a college. Gather information on where the students are placed and what is the pay package. You can also talk to some employers about the products of the university.
Don’t choose to go out until it is required to be: Staying at a local place is the most wonderful thing and you can also save money. When you enjoy the luxury of home, you can do better results. And you can also work or gather practical experience after your classes by joining an internship at your interested area of work.
Be wise, don’t believe all the myths: It is often seen that many reputed colleges or universities do not have the adequate infrastructure which is required to learn the course. Be practical; choose the one where you can learn all the skills.
Google to know more: Instead of wasting time on liking and commenting on other’s status, check the Facebook page of the institute or the people who are from the field where you want to work, talk to them, build your network. Google has answers to many things, check the affiliations and the other features of the college to be sure of getting admitted.
Locate yourself wisely: If you are studying a subject which demands to stay at a city or metropolis, choose a college located in that city so that you can get practical exposure. Same location also helps in getting recruited easily if you qualify the criteria of the job.
