When a student thinks of studying abroad different steps should be faced within the duration provided. Let’s take a look at the following steps for your understanding what is coming after…
Step 1: Attend a Counselling Session
Attend a counselling session at Benchmark to find out your options relating to study destination, courses available and recommended institutions.
Step 2: Register with Benchmark
Register with Benchmark to start the admission and visa process. We can help you navigate through the various processes and make studying overseas easier.
Step 3: Apply for admission
Once you have decided what and where you want to study, we will help you complete the application to the institutions of your choice. At the time of application for admission you will be required to submit several documents including proof of previous academic qualifications and in most cases proof of your English language ability. We will also provide you with a checklist for the documents you will need to provide when the time comes to apply for your visa.
Step 4: Pay the Tuition Fee
To accept the Confirmation of Enrollment from an education provider, you must pay the tuition fee. Most institutions require you to pay the first semester fee only. You can choose to pay this fee through either Bank Transfer or Credit Card. Benchmark can help you arrange either of these payment methods.
Once the institutions have received and processed your tuition fee payment, they will issue an Confirmation of Enrollment. Once we have received this, we will notify you that it is now time to come back with your required documents and start the visa application process.
Step 5: Visa Lodgement
To lodge your visa application you will need to provide the documents outlined in the checklist we provided you before. Just like your admission application, Benchmark will keep you updated as to the progress of your application and take the hard work out of tracking your application by keeping in contact with the visa office on your behalf.
Step 6: Visa Outcome
We will notify you as soon as we know the outcome of your visa application so you can come in and collect your passport. In most cases this is a positive response and it means you can also start planning your travel and accommodation for your prepared destination!
Step 7: Travel Assistance
At Benchmark we can help you organize your travel arrangements to begin your new student life in the prepared country. Air ticketing, insurance and foreign exchange can all be arranged through us to make studying overseas easier!
