Soft skills are the abilities that help people get on with their lives and people around them better. Employers across the world look for a right mix of academic and soft skills in the candidates. Studying abroad is a great chance to develop these skills.

Beware of Law

Every country has a particular set of rules for its immigrant population. These rules define the regulations for those who want to stay and work there. Therefore, it is important that you be aware about the student visa rules.


Overseas Student Health Insurance

International students who wish to pursue formal studies abroad should obtain health insurance as soon as they get selected. Health costs are relatively higher in other countries as compared to India. Medical expenses can take a huge financial toll on you if you do not prepare yourself in advance.

It is therefore recommended that you apply for the insurance program before moving in. While some countries like Australia support and cover the entire medical costs for its international student community, others like the US require you to obtain insurance from private providers.

You can get more details about the country specific health insurance programs on their office Home Ministry websites.
