Analysis of Current Overseas Study Market
Complex Procedure of Overseas Study Application
study entails receiving education in a foreign country after completion of the
necessary procedures regarding foreign affairs, society, culture, etc. The first
step for students who wish to go abroad to study is to go through time-consuming
and detailed procedures such as visa application in the Canadian embassy. All
foreign embassies pay great attention to studentsí» visa applications and ask
students to provide materials including a study plan, original high school
transcripts, acceptance letters, etc., while the parents must offer employment
certificates, an explanation of family funds, significant monetary deposit and
so on. Most students and their parents encounter great difficulties at the very
first phase of the procedure and they often get discouraged, or confused with
application procedures and visas, and waste much time and energy as they prepare
related files. The complexity of the entire process is also a shock to some
people who intend to go abroad.
and cultural affairs must be considered as well. Because most senior high school
graduates are under 20 years old, they doní»t have an advanced world outlook.
They are eager for knowledge, and they tend to absorb all concepts around
them whatever they may be. If they step into a new environment where there are
totally different cultural traditions, values and social structures at this
period in their life, it may be difficult for them to understand and accept the
best of western society and culture, which may in turn bring about some negative
perceptions that they will carry into their future career.
Many years of experience show that this is a valid concern. In
recent years, many senior high school students who went to the U.S. or Canada
immediately after graduating from senior high school suffered from worrying
thoughts and a negative world outlook. For this reason, students should take the
time to become somewhat knowledgeable about foreign society and culture for
complex procedures mentioned above are of much difficulty to students and their
parents and they often seek out assistance from an organization able to provide
them with overall instructions and ensure a smooth process.
