Pre Departure Briefing
Global Education Ideas pre-departure briefing captures a multitude of subjects to be mindful of for a student, to smoothen the adaptation and adjustment period for life at an overseas university. It is an informative and highly interactive event where our experienced personnel collaborate to share thoughts and inputs that are rather qualitative in nature and based on real experiences extracted from our Directors business and personal exposure overseas. One of the core objectives of the pre-departure briefing is to provide critical information to process and note carefully in order to deter any untoward issues, especially in the social sense, from occurring and to be aware of what to expect.
While the event does encompass the fundamental laws and procedures of studying overseas, it more importantly captures practices and systems to adapt into one’s lifestyle to obtain the maximum return on the investment both in tangible and non-tangible terms. A huge element of the seminar is on how to stay motivated and formulate the right habits and attitude in order facilitate the excellence and that ‘formula to success’ in life (if there is one).
Furthermore, the briefing also provides an opportunity for apprehensive parents to discuss their anxieties with experienced personnel that include first hand access to the leadership team. Students are also able to network with one another, especially with those going to the same university, city or country. These sessions are held across our entire network, twice a year. The briefing endeavors to prepare a student effectively for the environment he/she will be exposed to when attending university overseas.
Finding a home to live in is certainly not an easy task. Therefore, there is no need to go anywhere else but capitalize on our strong network and reach to find you the best accommodation facilities within the outlined budget.
