Postgraduate Studies Abroad
Postgraduate Studies Abroad – maximise your potential!
Our global market regularly demands candidates are exposed to studies abroad and all the personal development and skills gained in the process. Whilst studying abroad does take a big investment in time and money the longer-term benefits are significant and outweigh the investment. Postgraduate studies abroad is a great step to achieve your ambitions and have a lot of fun in the process.
Postgraduate Studies Abroad – four reasons why
1. Choose from top universities worldwide
With such a wide range of choices, you get to choose from highly ranked universities in a country of your choice – the UK, US or Europe. It depends on your abilities, ambitions and financial constraints but the higher you aim the greater access you have to some amazing institutions, with great facilities, professors, and academic resources. As an international student you will be welcomed as they prefer a good mix of thoughts, ideas, and backgrounds.
2. Improve your language and communication skills
Communicating, absorbing and assessing information from various sources is one key to success. Postgraduate studies abroad in English will expose you to all the English terminology used in that field of study. Maybe Mandarin is your preferred choice, however whatever you decide, interacting and working in teams with people from different backgrounds will give you additional confidence in that language and later open up your career prospects in global companies.
3. Maybe it is time to leave your comfort zone
Postgraduate studies abroad forces you to become more independent and builds your ability to face and manage new challenges. You will need to learn and adapt. Enjoy and maximise your strengths and become more aware of any weaknesses so you can build, improve, or compensate. Over time you will meet new colleagues and build a life in whatever country you choose. It is a great experience.
4. Stand out in the job market
It is statistically proven that students who have completed postgraduate studies abroad have greater opportunities and earning potential in the job market. This can be of particular importance when returning back to your homeland, but also gives you the opportunity of staying and working where you studied. Candidates with travel experience and foreign language skills are more employable.
Is it worth doing masters abroad?
An international diploma helps you stand out on the job market. Statistically, students who have chosen a Master's abroad have access to more job opportunities after graduating.
Postgraduate Studies Abroad – Our program in brief:
Our postgraduate programme is a personalised advisory program designed to navigate a quite complex and time-consuming process, especially if you are considering the more prestigious academic institutions.
If you feel a little lost, are short of time, and need some support then our programme is for you:
Your dedicated consultant with review and discuss your academic record, professional achievements, personal attributes and study budget.
Based on the initial assessment Elab will provide carefully selected programmes for further discussion and selection.
Elab’s Consultants and Mentors will ensure that your application will accentuate those elements and experiences which are sought and valued by the Universities to which you are applying.
The entire application process will be overseen and monitored by your Consultant alongside the Mentor we assign you.
If you intend to do your postgraduate studies in English then you will need to provide proof of your level of English. If you have not studied in English at Undergraduate level then you probably will need to provide an IELTS, TOEFL or CAE certificate prior to admission.
Postgraduate Studies Abroad – some popular choices
While all our programs are tailor-made, here are some popular categories amongst our students.
Elab has helped graduates successfully apply to the best universities in the UK, such as Oxford, Cambridge and University College London, but also to outstanding European institutions, such as Sciences Po in Paris, Freie Universitaet in Berlin, the University of Amsterdam and the University of Copenhagen. If you have set your heart on pursuing your postgraduate studies in the US, and you need to sit the GRE exam, we can prepare you for an intensive and highly effective program, which will teach you invaluable techniques and significantly improve your GRE scores. Candidates for the GRE will have to devote additional study hours to exam preparation.
This programme includes preparation for the GMAT test, which is mandatory for some of Europe’s finest business schools. We have helped students apply in Europe to London Business School, LSE, Imperial, CASS ESADE, Bocconi, HEC Paris and Saïd Business School (Oxford University). If you are interested in studying further afield, for example in the USA, we have helped students further their studies at Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, Sloan (MIT), Kellogg (Northwestern University) or Haas (University of California – Barkley). We will provide you with vital interview preparation sessions and put you in touch with our US-based Mentors for first-hand information and support with your application.
Applications for postgraduate studies in these fields must be supported by an excellent portfolio. Elab will ensure that this is properly prepared and organised for maximum impact. Interviews are another key to success, and we run a number of mock interviews to make sure you are well-prepared and confident.
