A quick guide to circumventing those educational touts or the higher education agency that “makes it easy” to get you into a good college.Many of them advertise in the classifieds,there are a  few dozen of them that promise to even throw in a work permit.These institutions charge a nominal fee from the student,and it’s a wonder how they sustain thier businesses on that.Theres a simple solution to that, which most of us already have guessed,they tie up with new and not- so- great universities and in return receive a cut back for every student that takes adsmission via them. They also offer free counselling services and IELTS/TOEFL training as an extra lure.It sounds like a good deal,and it does save you some trouble and the pesky paperwork,but what you don’t have is a matter  of choice.If you feel you deserve a better college,based on your spotless track merit, that the university agency doesn’t offer,you would have to settle for something less. So lets widen your horizon, suggesting you could also “do it yourself”—here’s how:

1.Before settling on your country of choice,go through the master list or directory of colleges/universities.visit each website,scanning through to see which college matches your desired study course,and check the fee structure.

2.Each college has its own pattern of course fees,some come across as reasonably cheaper than the rest,take your time to narrow your search down to 5-6 colleges that look promising.

3.On the admission tab of the website,download the application forms,for which you would be required to pay a small fee.Once downloaded,along with the prescribed set of other documents,it should be mailed to the university.About 5-6  applications to various colleges should be fine,even if half of those reject you on subjective grounds,you still have a choice of decent choice.

4.It would then take  an anxious 3 to 4 months before you receive the would be required to pay a  confirmation amount if you wish to accept the admission into a particular university,within the stipulated few weeks that they give you to pay.Its a small amount in the range of $300,after which you recieve the confirmation letter.

5.Take this confirmation letter to your local bank/financial institution if you wish to avail a student loan,which is recommended,for at least  half the tuition cost.

6.For the visa you would have to go to the visa issuing consulate in your local city or respective high comission ,for which the fee is about a $150.Applying for the visa needs some documents like passport,photographs,college confirmation letter and paid receipt,brochures and details of the college that accepted you along with course details.Also financial information like bank statements showing family funds,assets and accounts,which is the proof of ability to pay the rest of the course fees and living expenses.

7.Next would be the medical reports that would have to be submitted along with you visa application.A test of englsih like the TOEFL/IELTS is mandatory and would have  a good score in order to proceed.Once the visa is processed which is the last block,all you then need is your ticket, and your’e off.


The above procedure from start to end takes a good 10 months.So plan early,so you don’t miss out and get into the  best college of your choice and finally say goodbye to that university agency that got things messy the last time.

      i can vouch for engineering colleges in mumbai, the course is very tough,but worth it.A B.E from mumbai university is good, however im not sure about nepal. As far as streams go civil and mechanical are easy to get into anywhere, as the demand is very less as compared to computers.Getting a visa for work for USis very tough unless sponsored by your employer itself, study visa is easy for US
