High School is over, So what next

By February 23, 2017Budget, Planning, Student

Deciding on your course of action after high school can be very difficult. There are so many options and different pathways you can take and knowing what is best for you can be impossible to figure out. It is important to consider a number of things when thinking about your future, including what you want to pursue as a career and where you want that career to take you. Options for your future studies include:

Attending a University in India
The education system in India has undergone rapid transformation in recent years. With a growing population, the emergence of industries and a prediction of mass growth in the near future, it is no surprise that a focus has been placed on delivering quality education to the people of India. A number of Indian universities are now ranked in the top 100 in Asia, however within the global rankings undertaken by QS and THE, no Indian university has managed to crack the top 200. There have been a number of reasons given to explain this lack of performance, most of them regarding the lack of importance placed on graduate learning outcomes, the structure of education and the inability to embrace innovation. The emphasis on grades and exams is now no longer enough to compete with some of the world’s best universities and especially for degrees in sciences and technology, the research facilities in India’s universities are not capable of keeping up with the rest of the world. Competition for acceptance into the higher quality universities is also very high and even if your grades are excellent, it may not be enough to get into some of the best colleges.

Entering Vocational Training
Ultimately, you may not be interested in an academic career or studying at university. Never fear, as there are other options for acquiring employability skills and career related knowledge that do not require a degree. Vocational education and training simply means gaining the knowledge and skills required for the workplace, so contrary to their university bound classmates, vocational students will gain professional knowledge and heighten their employability. Vocational training has a very practical focus, unlike university education, where a lot of emphasis is placed on theory and the processing and application of knowledge.

Taking a Gap Year
Another option is to take a break from study and travel or work for a year or so. This gives you the perfect opportunity to either save up some money, or alternatively, see what the rest of the world has to offer you. A gap year is becoming a common option for many and the benefits one can gain are becoming increasingly relevant to workplace employers. Gaining cultural awareness, intercultural communication skills, independence and maturity are all possible on a gap year and ultimately, these can often be valued just as high as professional or academic skills, depending on your chosen field. If you are not ready to study straight out of high school, taking a year off can be the perfect way to prepare you for your future studies.

Studying Abroad
The final option, definitely the one that we recommend, gives you the opportunity to experience all of these at the one time. Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to receive a high- quality university education, pursue vocational training and to travel, all of which are of immense benefit to you. Research facilities and innovation in foreign universities are generally better than those found in India and in addition to this, a wide variety of courses and majors are available in all areas of study, meaning finding the right degree and unit selection that suits your needs and interests will be much easier. A popular option for many Indian students is choosing a domestic university for their undergraduate studies and then opting for a university overseas to pursue postgraduate degrees. The social and professional benefits of studying abroad are never- ending, with universities offering internationally recognised degrees and access to high class research and training facilities, all the while giving you more chances at employability by improving your maturity, independence, intercultural communication skills and global awareness. In addition to this, you get to live in another country and experience a new culture and language first- hand.

SIEC strongly believe that studying abroad will be the most beneficial pathway you can take towards success and employment, however there are many options available to you after school and it is important that you pick a path that you feel will be best for you. Take some time to consider your goals for the future and explore the options that are available to you. Remember, SIEC counsellors are always available to talk to you about your study abroad options.
