Have firm goals for studies abroad

Studying abroad

Dear Madam,
I am pursuing Medical Electronics Engineering (Final Year) in Bangalore. I would like to pursue MBA in Healthcare Management in India or abroad. What is the scope of healthcare management in India or abroad. What are the job opportunities for the same? Which are the universities or colleges in India or abroad that offers this program? After pursuing MBA, I want to write UPSC exams. In case if I pursue my MBA abroad, can I write UPSC exams? Kindly guide me and help me in reaching my goals.
Dear Priya,
Healthcare is one of today’s most dynamic and growing fields, with a wide range of opportunities and challenges. With growing diversity in the healthcare system, the following settings are open: Clinics/Hospitals/nursing homes, Lifestyle and health consultation, health insurance organizations, and Mental health organizations/Rehabilitation centers. Vacancies occur also in Universities and research institutions. There are many rewarding and exciting healthcare management careers offered in the Defence services too.

In India there are very good Universities in this sector like The Institute of Health Management (IHMR)–Jaipur, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai,  All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Delhi etc.

You can follow websitehttp://www.mbaschools.com/top-business-schools-health-care-mba.aspx  for universities abroad and select. Since each business school offers something a bit different in its experience,  follow their official  website to know the selected university better.

For UPSC exams you  must hold a Bachelor’s degree of any of  university recognized by UGC (University Grants Commission) and your MBA does not matter. For other related information regarding UPSC exams follow website http://upscguide.com/UPSC/UPSC_exam/civil_services/CS_eligibility.html
Best wishes!

Dear madam

I want to pursue masters in nano technology from the university of Pennsylvania. I found out that the tuition fees per year is around $35000. It is a one year course according to the university website. What will the eventual costs be? How is the market for a ms in nano at present in the US. No self-funding from my side. Is this education affordable. Any hopes of financial aid? Is MS hopeful?

Dear Student,

The total cost of study in  University of  Pennsylvania may be as high as $ 60,000. If interested in knowing student financial aid in this university , website http://www.sfs.upenn.edu/  will help. The University of Pennsylvania does not provide fellowships or scholarships for the Nanotechnology Masters program. You need to  find these opportunities yourselves or  through career services at the University.  The program is flexible.  You might find the following site useful in finding outside funding:  http://www.fastweb.com/

Nanotechnology is used in the creation of machines that would be used in a variety of fields including but not limited to medicine, electrical, bioscience, nuclear energy etc.  A lot has been done on this area. The growth is slightly hindered by the fact that the experiments conducted as part of the subject may lead to serious environmental issues which are yet to be overcome, but in the long run this field shows great promise.  Best wishes!

Dear Madam,

I am studying my 3rd year engineering (BE) in Bangalore. I have my aggregate of 60% and after my completion of my BE. I wish wishing to further continue my  M.Tech /MS in foreign universities. so please guide me to the success of my future. What are  the steps to get admission under foreign universities.

Dear Vishakh,

Decide whether  you want to be a  hardcore technologist by matching your interest  with  your aptitude, for your marks are not indicative that you are very strong in technology. If so, you may find that you will not enjoy your studies, or score high marks. Once you are clear about your goals and your ability to reach them, then  identify which country you are planning to go to for your MS and your field of study. Each country differs in application/admission procedure. Then you will need to prepare for Entry exams like TOEFL/IELTS(English proficiency tests) and GRE, which is a requirement in most universities abroad. Website http://www.newschool.edu/lang/academics.aspx%3Fid%3D9230 will  guide you in procedures for studying abroad.  
Best Wishes!

Dear Madam

I have completed my PUC with 85.5% in 2013. Now I want to study medicine (MBBS) in Germany. Therefore I require information about few institutions and universities that offer this course for foreign students. Also what is the Eligibility criteria and fee structure?
Soulat Arshi

Dear Soulat,

Studying medicine in Germany could be a challenge and you may have to overcome many barriers.  Details can be had from website http://www.studying-in-germany.org/study-medicine-in-germany/). For international students it is very important to have good knowledge of German language. More details on studying medicine in Germany can be had on http://www.medknowledge.de/germany/study/students_medicine_germany.html
If you are open to study in more student friendly  medical universities with lesser fee structure -China, Philippines, Malaysia , Ukraine etc could be considered as their medium of instruction is English. Websites http://www.chinauniversitystudy.com/, http://studymdinphilippines.com/, http://www.studymalaysia.com/education/http://webaconnect.ning.com/forum... and  www.ifnmu.com/MBBS-Register_Now‎  may be worth visiting  if interested.
However, if you can manage to get a seat in a medical college in India, you will not have the hassles of giving any other qualifying exams to practice medicine in India when you return with a foreign degree.  You can consider going abroad for specialization and higher studies.
Good Luck!
