You are ready to take that next step toward creating your dream business, but you feel like you aren’t quite ready yet. What is stopping you? Finances, time, or most likely, it is education. Don’t let education be the only thing stopping you from making your dreams a reality! You may not think you are ready to take that step yet, but we are here to tell you that you can do it! We have a few tips for you to make it happen and get you to the US to study business!
1. Get the Help You Need
Numerous programs will help you find business colleges in the US for international students. These programs can help you on your search and beyond! They will work with you and for you to set you up with a University, application assistance, student visa and pre-arrival info, campus transition, academic support, and career development. They will be there for you every step of the way, so even though you may feel alone on your journey, you never will be!
2. Have an Open Mind
Going into new situations with an open mind is vital, and that is definitely true when it comes to moving to a new country for school. Try your best when you first get there to say yes to amazing opportunities and try to get a little bit out of your comfort zone. It will be hard at first, but once you see the amazing things that await you, you will never go back to having a closed mind again!
3. Be Ready for Everything
You may not be ready for everything, but know that anything is possible. A change in scenery will bring about changes in a lot of other aspects of your life. There will be big changes and small adjustments made, but know that that is ok! That is all part of changing for the better, and it is best to try and be ready for it!
4. Know That Things Will be Different
Of course, this one is easy to know, but it is important to remember things will be different than they are at home. But it is also important to know that different doesn’t always mean bad, it can just mean new. You will be eating new food, trying new drinks, hearing about different shows and movies, being exposed to new music, and going to a different part of the world entirely. Things are bound to be different and you may feel like everything is changing. That is normal! As long as you stay level headed and focused on your goal of being there for school, you should have no problem adjusting to your life abroad.
5. Have Your Tools Ready
No, we don’t mean your hammer and wrench (though you may need those to hang pictures on your wall), we mean your laptop, notebooks, and pens. Get all your essentials from home, that way you are prepared for the U.S. not having everything you are used to. Of course you will have alternative items, but you want to make sure that you have a few familiar items to get you settled and ready to take on new challenges.
6. Find Ways to Connect with Your Family Back Home
Help your parents and grandparents get set up with ways to talk with you before you go, that way you can communicate with them as soon as you land. You can use messaging apps like WhatsApp to call, message, video chat, send pictures, and so much more! You will be able to stay connected with them. That will help you feel more comfortable, and it will make it so they are able to support you more easily while you are gone.
Taking this step is a big change, but it is one that you can do! Good luck on your new adventure!
