Choose a suitable school for your study abroad
Studying is not easy and not cheap. So do not choose a career because everyone is learning, do not choose a school because there are too many referrals, and do not study abroad because all friends have gone abroad. Be sure to choose the appropriate school for you to complete your study abroad.
1. Reconsider the concept of studying abroad
Study abroad is not a place to study for a luxury or a chance to travel free. If you come to France you will have the opportunity to visit the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Seine, .. If you come to Italy you will visit the Roman arena, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Square, Then, it's easy to show off your friends and relatives with gorgeous photos of places you go through on Facebook, Instagram. The desire to travel is plausible. But do not start your study abroad travel plans. Those free trips are really expensive.
Study abroad is not a place to settle for the future. In fact, developed countries have remarkable quality of life, high income, good living environment, human rights are respected and guaranteed, all human-centric welfare systems are ... Everyone wishes to find the opportunity to reside in countries such as USA, UK, Australia, France, Germany. So some parents and students have the mentality is: Where to go, as long as going abroad and look for opportunities. If you start studying abroad like that, you can not focus on learning, moreover, good living environment that requires high competition, bear the pressure, constantly develop themselves.
Study abroad is not easy to find places to study more comfortable. Everyone knows that our education is heavy on theory while foreign education is very open, encouraging the creativity of students. But do not think to study abroad is that you are comfortable learning what to learn, want to learn how to learn. Go abroad, you have to change the learning method from passive to active. Schools do not force students to study but require self-study, self-motivation to self-study, self-practice, and teamwork. They allow you freedom of creation but creativity must have results, meet the high requirements. If you make a mistake, they will handle it according to the rules and never have a "high raise".
Studying is not about following the crowd. If affected by the crowd mentality, it will be very difficult to master the direction for yourself. Do not choose a career because everyone is learning, do not choose a school because there are too many referrals, and do not study abroad because all friends have gone abroad. Write down your strengths, passions and abilities. Do you really want to study it? Do you really want to study abroad? The future is yours, decided by you, not the crowd at all.
Study abroad is not always choose the top school, located in the center is the best. Highly ranked schools, good majors are not necessarily right for you. Instead of charting, find out which schools have the method or content that matches your desires and abilities.
There is another difference, you should note, is that overseas good schools are not necessarily concentrated in the center, can be distributed scattered throughout their country. If you choose a suitable school in the suburbs, you will save significant expenses for study and living.
2. Choose "golden time" to study abroad

It is no coincidence that right from the high school level in the United States, England, Australia young people have chosen the industry suitable for themselves. They have a strategic educational orientation for students to plan their future. In addition, high school students are well equipped with basic background knowledge to adapt to every shift in their field of study and careers.

Imagine, all the books, English textbooks, teachers taught in English, eat sleep in English. Those who have studied abroad have heard each other for the first few months of studying abroad, listening to lecturers like "duck listening to the thunder", and laughing loudly when they read the song. At present, there are many schools that make it impossible for you to reach the required English level to fulfill your dream of studying. Either you just complete an English exam or you will take a preparatory course to qualify for the entrance.
Most schools will look at third-level transcripts of applicants, which are important in the recruitment process. GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated by adding up the average of the subjects and dividing them equally for the average. GPA in the United States on a scale of 4, in Vietnam on a scale of 10. If your average academic performance average good years, the chances for you to receive is very high.

You can face crisis because you do not catch up with the lecture, so plan to study hard, hard work.
However, aside from the GPA, overseas schools attach great importance to the living capital that you accumulate through school activities. Many young people only invest in learning a foreign language and improve their academic performance at school, forgetting that extracurricular activities are an easy way to persuade schools. If you participate in many activities, the movement in the common years you will have more flexible reflexive skills, teamwork. When moving to a completely foreign country, with your experience you will adapt faster.
