Hi @Abhyuday_Sinha

Universities in the UK -

  1. University of Leeds
  2. University of Glasgow
  3. University of Bath
  4. Loughborough University
  5. London School of Economics
  6. University of Exeter
  7. University of Manchester

European universities -

  1. Bocconi University, Italy
  2. HEC, Paris, France
  3. INSEAD, France
  4. University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
  5. Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands
  6. Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

US Universities for Banking and Finance -

  1. University of Michigan
  2. Boston University
  3. University of California, Berkley
  4. UCLA Anderson School of Management
  5. New York University

Depending on your finances, you can also choose more affordable universities.

As for the budget, there are two options - education loans and scholarships.
To give you a brief idea - there are two types of education loans - Secured education loans (where you pledge collateral or property to support the loan amount you are borrowing) and Unsecured education loans (where a co-applicant co-signs the loan with you).

There are also education loans offered by international lenders that are without any requirement of collateral or co-applicant. The loan is given solely based on the student’s profile, target college and course, and future earning potential.

I would advise you to first explore Indian lenders and then move on to international lenders. Mainly because the loan from an international lender will cost more in terms of the interest rate and processing fees. Indian lenders offer a cheaper option, and even in that, public banks where you have to pledge collateral should be your first choice. This is if you have collateral to pledge.

Next, to reduce the loan amount required, apply to scholarships - as many as you can. You can even hold more than one scholarship. Please bear in mind though some scholarships bar students from holding more than one, so read the eligibility criteria and requirements carefully.

These blogs will give you a list of scholarships -

If you finalize a country, then post on this thread and I will mention all the eligible scholarships as per your course.

Applications for the fall semester open on 1 August for most universities. So, if you are planning for Fall 2022, then start the process of shortlisting universities and prepare your resume and essays. Please also remember to search and shortlist scholarships as the application process will start in Oct/Nov for most of them.

If you need any further help, please reply to this thread and I will get back to you.
All the best!

As for the country, United States will be my first choice

Hi, I’m Nirali from Mumbai. I have finished my HSC and am waiting for the results. I am an aspiring Physiotherapist and want to pursue the same in an Australian University. The Undergraduate course is for 4 years. I would like to know about the available scholarships for the same. I already have an offer letter from the University of South Australia, Adelaide.

Hi @Nirali_Gosrani

Scholarships for Australia -

These blogs should help you.

Other than this, refer to this page for scholarships provided by the university -

Since you are going for an undergraduate degree, there’s a high chance that the financial aid would be limited. I advise you to get in touch with your department and enquire about financial assistance for international students.

Hope this helps. All the best!

There are scholarships that are offered by the university as well. So contact your target university or the admission office and ask for a list of scholarships offered to international students. You can also explore the university website to search for them.
There are three types of scholarships that a university can offer -

  • Entrance-based scholarships - students are automatically eligible for these scholarships when they apply for admission and accept the offer.
  • Merit-based - these are given based on your academic profile and application. You may have to submit an application and a personal essay.
  • Need-based - these are given after determining your need for financial assistance.

Not every college/university offers all the types, so get in touch with your target college to find out financial aid provided by them.

Hope this helps you. All the best!

Hi @vishakha.bhagia,

Thanks for the information. But I was planning for University of British Columbia as it also offers Computer Science course with AI as a subject. Can you please help me with understanding if that is a right decision?


Hi @nisha_t

I cannot tell you if it is the right decision or not. That is for you to decide if this university fulfills your parameters.

To help you make this decision, I did some extensive research about the course and university.
About the course -
If you want to go by ranking, it is consecutively ranked in the top 10 departments in the country. And therefore, it’s quite competitive to get into the program. The program is flexible. However, as a master’s student, you will have to teach and study yourself. The degree is not terminal - you have the option to choose to study further or get a job. The program is dynamic and will instill the necessary skills to excel in the field. There are plenty of opportunities within the department to work with field experts. You can work on a research project with a faculty member, submit your research papers, or even explore various disciples within the department.

There is 100% placement after graduation. It is a Co-op program so you can work while studying. Though the university has not posted previous employment statistics, they have a job portal for current and graduate students. There are special job events and workshops planned for international students to help make them more employable. As for the recruiters, all the top companies come for recruitment.

Scholarships -
The department has scholarships for international students as well. Some of the scholarships offered by them are as follows -

  • Computer Science Merit Scholarship
  • International Tuition Awards
  • Tuition Fee Awards

There are also assistantships offered within the department.

Now, about the university -
It comes in the top 5 percent of universities in the world. The campus has a good educational environment. And the faculty is experts in their respective fields.

Given all the pros, the acceptance rate of the university is roughly 52%. So, if you want to get into this university, you will have to work on your application.

Hope this information helps you make a decision. All the best!

Hi @vishakha.bhagia ,
