US Elections: how Hillary and Trump’s views benefit Indian student’s




In the upcoming polls in US both the Presidential candidates views matter a lot for the student’s from India. The alumni and teachers are waiting with anxiety on what they want to implement further to take college or university education in US to a higher peak. What is their stand on educational policies? Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the competing candidates that hold the answer to this inevitable question. It is their view on higher education policy that will decide the fate of the Indian student’s going to the US for MS and B-school enrollment.

The standpoint of Hillary Clinton is available on her campaign websites. She represents a broader perspective for higher education in US. Her focus is on:

  • Enhancing computer-science education
  • Support to the school alumni, especially teachers
  • Change in school discipline with stricter laws
  • Improving the present conditions of school buildings

It is clearly evident that on a personal level she wants to be more involved in student education. This is in stark contrast to her counterpart in the Republican Party Donald Trump. Her projection for the future growth of higher education is subsidies to renovated old buildings. She wants to place education on a higher platform. Her idea is to create modern learning, including ecological classrooms with latest state of the art technological brilliance. Video Tutorials, PPTs, more student and trainers interaction, brainstorming sessions and much more. Making higher education a less expensive affair is her targeted goal.

Trump has an altogether slanted view on educational policies. He wants to cut down the role of the federal government. His comments relate to sizing down the Department of Education. This will reflect on less spending on student’s progress. One of his campaign hoardings states that “we spend far more per pupil than any country in the world”. He wants to monopolize higher education, which will have a direct effect on the student visas. This in turn will curb Indian Student’s from gaining admission into the several schools and colleges in US.

  • Lowering Federal aid
  • More responsibility placed on state administration
  • Eyes the unions as a hindrance to growth
  • Agrees scholarships increase student debt

The above decisions will invariably play a negative role in student enrollment. Although, he speaks that steps must be taken make college education within the reach of common man. There is no comprehensive plan on his campaign agenda to enhance higher education beneficial for student’s. The student’s, especially the Indians will have to pay a high fee for admissions. This move will bring to halt huge funding to schools and colleges. Staying on university campus will become more expensive. The average budget for each student will rise.

There are mixed reactions among the student’s who are going to US. Their focus is on the outcome of the general elections, which would reveal what budget is allotted for higher education. All the dreams of overseas education is just a mirage that needs to be seen with a 20/20 vision. Ensuring a positive direction to educational goal is mostly anticipated.

Lifestyle, Education opportunities, Cost of living at Canada


Cultural diversity

The lifestyle of the people and student’s in Canada is completely different from what is back home in India. The cultural diversity, attitude, clothing, language, living conditions and ecological surroundings are absolutely different. The quality of life is much higher and better. They don’t live on others expectations. They create a space of their own. Success is not looking for money, status and gifts. They desire honesty, loyalty and first priority.

The education opportunities are vast and expansive in Canada. The level of study begins with:

  • Elementary (grades 1 – 6)
  • Secondary (grades 7 – 12)
  • Collage (there are more than several thousand college programs)
  • University (there are 3 levels of graduation degree: Bachelors, Master’s and Doctoral)

Both public and private schools exist. Language schools teach French and English.

A euphoric atmosphere prevails in the classroom. The student’s are more open in their behavioral pattern. Their mannerisms involve a lot of physical activity. Here, everything happens for a reason. They are more friendly and always smiling, having fun. Music holds center stage. The clothes they wear are upbeat. It’s a vibrant society out there. Getting used to their accent is a challenge. However, very soon you will overcome it. A good knowledge off French language is very handy. Overseas student’s can work while studying.

A mystique surrounds the nation. It is second largest country in the world. The Canadian dollar hovers around INR 50. The cost of living is 175 per cent higher than in India. Globally, the immigration to Canada is the highest. A tolerant multicultural society.

Success decides who you are at work. Laughter, tears, smiles add to the confusion. Calm yourself down. You can the change the way you lived. It can happen, how you select your friends matters. The way you adapt yourself easily will be of great help as well.

Public Health/Health Administration –

Many students are looking to study Public Health or Health Administration at the Master’s level, in US/Canadian universities. Here is some information that will help you make a considered decision.

Public Health is offered as a Master of Science (MS) program, which is offered for professionals with work experience in the field of health. Most Doctors with work experience could prefer this if they have at least one year experience. However, there are universities that might admit students even without work experience. Another requirement is credentials evaluation. Universities would like to compare the qualifications of international applicants to that of their country’s qualifications and then determine if an applicant is eligible to study MPH.

Health Administration/Management, on the other hand, is offered under both MBA and MS streams. While universities offering the same under MBA stream prefers applicants with a GMAT score, those offering as an MS program accept the GRE score.  More often than not, universities prefer applicants with work experience. And, many universities require credentials evaluation.

Therefore, while embarking upon the plan to study either MPH or MHA, please make sure that you have the required qualifications, work experience and (if required) credentials evaluation report before you apply to universities.

MR can help you choose the right specialization and program to study in USA. Visit any of our 18 centers across India and discuss your plans with our experienced counselors/center managers. They will be pleased to suggest the right program, university and location according to your plans and budget. This will ensure that your sojourn to USA/Canada/Germany for higher education is pleasant, productive and affordable.

Entrance Qualification for Higher Education in Germany



The eligibility for higher education in Germany is connected with several requirements. As is the case with several schools and colleges in different nations. Similarly, there is a criteria laid out for the student’s who want to seek enrollment in German universities. “Abitur” is a University Entrance Qualification examination that ensures higher education enrollment in Germany. It assures the student’s above 12 years of high school education to get admission to study in any university or college in Germany. The student can choose any subject or graduation degree.

The next big question is what about international student’s who do not have German “Abitur”. They must have a similar certificate that is equivalent of it. Or else they must have some proof that shows their previous education is equal to “Abitur”. Now, to put it practically the school certificate given while leaving the institution after completion of high school studies or graduation is eligible for admission into higher education in Germany.

There are several categories for enrollment into higher education in Germany. A direct procedure entitles the student’s to apply directly and get enrolled in any German university. Indirect eligibility requires a student to undergo a year of preparatory course in Studienkolleg, then pass the university entrance exam. General category entitlement gives a student complete freedom to apply in any school and college to complete a graduation program in any of the universities in Germany.

Moreover, there is an entitlement category for a particular graduation degree, including MS, MBA or subject related graduation. The specific subject related areas recognized in Germany:

Technology and science abbreviated as (T)

Social and economy (W)

Medical and Biology or related subject area (M)

Arts (Humanities) and languages (G and S or G/S)

How can you know if the school leaving certificate in secondary education is eligible for admission into higher education in Germany?

Without any question not all school leaving certificates are accepted for admission in Germany. There are several discussions in this regard. For more information log onto or the Anabin website:

In addition to this, the university website to where a student is applying gives sufficient information on the entrance qualification for higher education in Germany.  However, GRE Coaching, GMAT Preparation, SAT Training, TOEFL and IELTS are good enough for admission into German schools and colleges. All the universities in Germany accept the scores a student gets in these examinations. All you need to do is to live on your expectations and create your own space. Success will decide in which university you will get enrollment.

Europe opens its doors wider to students


The European Parliament (which represents all the countries in the EU) has recently passed a legislation which is of tremendous benefit for international students from non-European countries like India. According to the legislation,

  • Non-EU nationals can now stay for at least nine months after concluding their studies or research in order to look for a job or set up a business;
  • Non-EU students and researchers can move more easily within the EU, and no longer need to file a new visa application when moving from one EU country to another (rather, they need only to notify the country to which they are moving);
  • Researchers are entitled to bring their family members with them, and those family members are allowed to work during their time in Europe (this provision does not apply to students, however);
  • Non-EU students are entitled to work at least 15 hours per week during their studies.

However, a few of the earlier proposals were NOT accepted, such as:

* Working for 20-hours a week, which is approved instead for 15 hours

* Bringing spouses while students are still studying – still not possible

* 18 months post-study residence period – not agreed upon but increased to 9 months

This is definitely good news for students from India, who could stay back to look for employment and also work during their studies to make more money!

Visa documentation – how to handle successfully: Admission deadlines for Spring intake are coming to a close and very soon, students will get the I-20s. Then starts the most complex process – the documentation for visa.

As known already, the US Consulates will mostly depend on the interview to approve or reject a student (F1) visa. A little-known fact is that financial documentation though not mandatory, is essential to improve one’s visa chances. If an applicant wants to prove that he/she has sufficient funds to study, how does he/she establish that? Having the right documents on hand and submitting them for verification becomes crucial during the interview. While academic documents are predictable, the financial documents are dynamic and critical for visa purpose. Many students do the mistake of obtaining fake or badly prepared documents. This is illegal, dangerous and could lead to a permanent ban on entering the US for education.
