It’s that time of the year again! Waiting tirelessly for your study visa application to come through. And if you, too, are waiting like thousands of others, you are just doing it the ordinary way. It’s time to take your game a notch higher to stay ahead of others. Let’s take a look at all the productive things you must do instead of wasting that most precious ‘decision-making’ time:
Groom yourself, just for that country
‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do’ this proverb highlights the importance of learning the culture of the place you’d be in, simply to help you not look out of place. The first thing to do while waiting for your study permit to arrive is to groom your personality to adjust to the new country’s environment. It’s time to save yourself from feeling out of place while being in it.
Brush your local language skills
It is always advisable to brush your speaking skills while visiting a new place. And it does not include English alone. As much as you’d want to be fluent in speaking the international language, you wouldn’t want to miss out on knowing the local jargon. Imagine not knowing ‘Hola’ while in Spain or ‘Hey’ while in America. But in any case, don’t forget to be comfortably fluent in speaking English to interact with students coming from different parts of the world.
Useful tip: Choose an appropriate channel or movie to learn the respective English accents. Say you are going to America, watch American TV channels or movies daily to get a hold of their accent.
Sort daily expenses
A work permit may not even be the last thing on your mind but it’s as important as getting there. This world is an expensive place to be in. And if you, too, aren’t the rarest billionaire species, you’d need to work to manage your life in a foreign land. In such a case, it is vital to abide by the rules of the land to avoid the chance of getting penalized/deported. Quickly check out ‘How to get a work permit/work visa’ in your selected country and try collecting all the information that would let you work from day one.
Arrange for traveling
Visiting any country always includes going out and about to explore it, too. The main purpose of visiting could be any but the next best thing is to plan regular trips across the length and breadth of the country. But one might need travel permissions to tick this off from one’s bucket list. Hence, it’s time to find out every detail about ‘How to get a travel permit’ in the country you’re about to visit. This would also help you sort your daily traveling options to the workplace and university campus.
