The United Kingdom is a popular destination for international students, and it’s easy to see why. From world-famous universities to vibrant cities, the UK has a lot to offer. One of the UK’s main attraction is the opportunity to study at some of the best universities in the world, like Oxford, Cambridge, and Imperial College London, among other respected schools. Jasran Mohommed, a final-year architecture student, has received acceptance letters from some such universities. Let’s dive into his success story!
Why choose the UK?
The UK is among the top 3 destinations chosen by international students. It offers low tuition fees, welcomes people from diverse cultures, and provides several exploration opportunities to students.
Jasran’s reason for choosing the UK was to explore. He said that while his initial choice was to study in Canada, he saw that the UK offers a wide range of scholarships, alongside the opportunity to explore European countries. He says, “Since European countries are close to each other, I can travel during the holidays and explore them.”
Jasran’s journey forward with iSchoolConnect
Jasran always knew he wanted to study abroad for his master’s due to the difference in the work culture and even the education system. He stated that even though the UK and Indian education systems are pretty similar, they’re still different and that the UK has one of the best education systems in the world.
Jasran also mentions that while pursuing his master’s, he wants to intern in the UK for a while to experience the work culture and see how clients and projects are handled there.
How Jasran met iSchoolConnect
Jasran came across iSchoolConnect via Instagram. He said that although he signed up with various study abroad consultants, what set iSchoolConnect apart was the wide range of facilities offered, including post-application assistance.
He says that his mentors were “extremely polite, helpful and responded immediately every time I had a query.” He also added that when he didn’t receive a response from universities, he would reach out to the counselors who would take care of the problem, and he soon received a reply from the university.
Getting into Oxford Brookes University, London Metropolitan University, Cardiff University, and UCL is a dream for many! Jasran’s dream came true when he got into all these universities and is currently waiting to hear from Manchester Metropolitan University, UAL, CAL, and Strathclyde University.
During his application process, he recollects assembling the documents as being the most hectic task. He said students should start collecting documents at least a year in advance to avoid last-minute hassles. Jasran started his application process 6 months before-hand and said it took him 3 months to gether the documents.
However, he mentions that his success story was incomplete without his mentors and counselors at iSchoolConnect! After collecting all documents, he just had to give them to his counselors, who processed them. He could concentrate on his studies without worrying about what would come next!
What set iSchoolConnect apart from others?
“I felt like it was a perfect match for me!”– Jasran Mohommed
According to Jasran, he had no idea about iSchoolConnect until he came across the scholarships offered. The primary assistance with his success story was his requirement for scholarships, but while getting to know more about scholarships, he encountered other obstacles that he didn’t know how to handle.
Jasran said that many students don’t know about the multiple scholarships available to study abroad aspirants, which makes the process overwhelming. He also said that iSchoolConnect’s SOP tool was a game-changer for him. Even though Jasran wasn’t aware of what an SOP is or how to write it, he said that once he knew these things, the SOP tool worked wonders for him and gave his essay the polishing that made his application stand out.
When Jasran was asked about the biggest challenge he faced during the entire process, he just smiled and said, “I didn’t face any big challenge because I had iSchoolConnect.” This remark was for the immense help he received from his mentors and counselors, who made the entire process hassle-free, contributing to his success story.
He said that students might want to go through the process on their own, but they shouldn’t because they don’t know what might come up next. He added that students should take help from study abroad consultants for a smooth and stress-free transition.
Future plans and advice
After completing his master’s degree, Jasran plans to intern at a UK-based company to experience the country’s work environment and culture. After that, he plans on coming back to India to be close to his parents.
For Jasran, the best tip for students is to research. Whether it be about finances or part-time jobs, travel or accommodation, students need to research well before deciding.
The UK offers various scholarships that students are unaware of. Therefore, they must apply for scholarships wherever possible!
We wish Jasran the best of luck in his future endeavors and hope he achieves everything he dreams of!
