University Shortlisting

In India, university branding matters a lot for a good career. Unlike this, in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, university ranking does not matter that much. If you are planning for higher studies from abroad, keep the below-mentioned points in mind before shortlisting any university: Masters
⦿ Do not make the ‘university’s ranking’ a criterion to shortlist the college.
⦿ One needs to check the courses offered in the department to shortlist the university.
⦿ The location of the university is a very crucial point when selecting the university.
⦿ If industries are located near to the university, one will get a good internship as well as job opportunities.
⦿ One should check the tuition fees of the university. Do not shortlist too expensive colleges as you will get equal opportunity from every college.

Doctoral studies (PhD)
⦿ Do not make the ‘university’s ranking’ a criterion to shortlist the college.

⦿ The location of the university does not matter when selecting the university.
⦿ The reputation of the professor working in the concerned research field helps students to get a good job after completion of their studies.
⦿ One should check the research funding available to the professor.
⦿ One should get feedback from fellow lab members before accepting the offer (in case you have multiple offers) about the work culture of the research group before joining the research group.
