University of Technology – Say Hello to International Education
I remember the exciting times when I was applying to study in a university abroad. My very first experience of studying outside of India has truly been one of the best experiences I have had. I have always enjoyed studying, but a global perspective certainly has an influence on the way you think. It brings a whole new world to you, especially when the classroom is filled with people from different backgrounds. You get an opportunity to understand how important it is to be sensitive to different cultures and learn the art of working with people from different backgrounds. And that directly transforms into a work experience.
When we talk about global education, some of the institutes in India, such as ISB, IIM’s which are the front runners among the MBA schools, have truly gone global with the help of their exchange programs with universities abroad. Noting that technology is one of the most sought after courses in India, there are also some foreign universities which are taking a step forward to help students access their top class education by providing pathway courses. One such premium pathway institute is UTS:INSEARCH (UTSI). A pathway program gives students a specialized experience with some practical knowledge, real time situations and exciting projects which makes it very interesting and practically useful for the students. Moreover, once you complete two years at UTSI, you can then directly apply for the second year at University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
A good way to understand the benefit of a university is to speak to its students, understand their student life experiences, and how it has made an impact on their careers and life goals. A few students’ profiles can be found at the UTS Insiders’ website which can help understand what students have learnt during their courses and how it influenced their career paths.
One of the reasons to choose a university such as UTS is that one gets a range of global degree courses which opens up opportunities to work in different countries, providing a wider exposure and an exciting student life. Its courses cover subjects such as ICT, Business, Animation, Marketing, Medical sciences, Communication, etc – providing a wide variety of choices to students to make a necessary career decision.
If you are looking for higher education or global work opportunities, it is worth having an international degree under your belt. Of course Indian degrees are quite valuable, however, apart from the few elite institutes such as IITs and IIMs, the other schools barely get noticed on your CV when you are speaking to an audience outside of India. In times like these, your global education does play a powerful role.
However, it would be incorrect for me to recommend a university or pathway institute abroad just for the sake of a job or global exposure. It is important to understand the impact it can have on your personality and the knowledge you gain through the entire process. A global education certainly gives you opportunities to talk to faculty who have achieved accolades, to immerse yourself in a culture which could have a very powerful influence on your approach towards life. And also, to gain a better understanding as to what your future global employer may want from you.

UTS:INSEARCH provides a good landing into UTS which can open up some great channels for education in Australia and provide great job opportunities for one’s future. As the good old cliché goes, “the world is your oyster” it depends on how you use the opportunities presented to you.
