International Education : What, How and When?

08 Sept. 2020

IEEE MSIT with the aim of “leading the wave of change” aspires to achieve excellence in all its endeavors. The Student Branch committed to help young undergraduates evaluate their career goals, polish their technical skillset, and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network by providing them a plethora of opportunities. So for the same IEEE MSIT collaborated with IDP for a consultancy and created a briefing space on higher studies in various courses on 8 September 2020 on Zoom at 7pm. There were three speakers for the webinar for each country and two person to conduct the webinar one from IDP and one from our team. Mrs. Sudipta Chopra the destination manager at IDP education for representing Australia with more than 10 years of experience as a study abroad consultant and also earned All India No. 1 position award in Australia Student Placement Excellence. Another speaker was Mrs. Harpreet Kaur Mullay, the senior counsellor at IDP education representing United Kingdom with 10 years of experience and last Mrs. Megha Saxena, also the destination manager at IDP education representative of USA and Canada with more than 8 years of experience of expert counseling. The interactive webinar had a great turn over with more than 70 attendees ( IEEE members : 19 and non IEEE members : 51) and nullified all the queries like how to choose the perfect university, about the application process and expenses at desired destination. It can be proudly stated that this initiative proved to me very fruitful to students who are planning or want to go abroad for higher education. Keywords : higher education, counseling, career.
