Chilpancingo de los Bravo

Chilpancingo is the capital and second-largest city of the state of Guerrero, Mexico. The city is on Mexican Federal Highway 95 which connects Acapulco to Mexico City. It is served by Chilpancingo National Airport, which is one of the five airports in the state.
Truly a city for archeology’s lovers, because you will find here “Pezuapan”. An archaeological sits on the eastern slope of the Chilpancingo valley. With more than 4000m2 of archaeological vestiges, dated from 650 AD to 1150 AD.

Acapulco de Juárez

We continue our little tour of the city of Acapulco. Known as the major seaport in the state of Guerrero on the Pacific coast of Mexico.  You surely have already heard of Acapulco before. But did you know that this city is the largest in the state and also Mexico’s largest beach and seaside resort city. As a matter of fact, the city is one of Mexico’s oldest beach resorts (a getaway for Hollywood stars and millionaires in the 1940s through to the 1960s).

International credits: How to collect them as a free mover

International credits: How to collect them as a free mover

Going abroad as an independent student to collect international credits?

Going abroad during your studies is more and more a big step and it is sometimes mandatory to graduate.  This post will help you to know what are your solutions and what to check before going abroad by yourself as an independent student, often called free-mover by universities. One of the main questions concerns the credit system and international credits.
Check our previous post on the subject: Free mover or exchange student the differences

First, think about your current situation and your international credits options

Here are some questions you can ask yourself now if you didn’t check them yet :

  • Does my current program require to study abroad?
  • Do I want to spend time abroad during my studies?

If you reply yes to one of the first two questions, it’s time to check your university partnerships.

What if you can’t go as an exchange student?

Two reasons can lead you to this question. Your destination choices as an exchange student have been refused by your institution, or none of the partners was of your interest.
You know have the task to go abroad by yourself.
In order to do so, you will have to:

  1. Find an institution
  2. Check with your institution if they recognize it and if the program content is ok for your final degree (labels and accreditations  can help)
  3. Make all the steps for admission in the new institution (check your language level too, you can read our post about English language certificates)
  4. Continue to regularly check with your home school about the validation of the course you will follow there. Make sure you find your international credit context, for example ECTS.

Have a teacher or an administrator on your side

A good way to deal will the foreign administration papers and demands of your home university is to have a teacher to help you to go through. You can ask him to review the program that you will follow and if it matches with your actual program.
He might help you with a recommendation letter too if the international office can’t. And also it is better to stay in touch with him during your journey. Let him know how your studies are going and about what you are learning. The interesting thing about this is that he will not have to discover all at once when you get back. It may help you to validate your credits too.  No bad surprises when you’re going back will be a nice thought as you will be abroad.

Make the most of your summer break

If you are just missing a few time abroad to meet your international credits requirements, you can use a summer program to reach your goal.

It will be relatively the same recommendations to go abroad for a summer than to go as a free-mover for a trimester. If your goal is to come back with international credits, you will have to check with your home institution if they are ok with it. And also, you will have to take in charge the application part.
The best part of summer programs, it’s that they often offer activities to discover the country and the culture. It is not just about studies, but also communication skills, foreign language learning skills, social integration, academic integration and global skills and support.

I hope this post will help you to find the best way for you to go abroad! Don’t forget that the most important things are to look for information early and always check it with your home institution.

Will you guess where Rida is coming from?

Will you guess where Rida is coming from?

Rida wants to study abroad. HigherEdMe interviews a lot of students in the world about their motivation to go abroad to get a degree. Will you guess where Rida is coming from by reading her answers?

What do you want to study and why? What makes you like your study field?

I want to study the MBA Program. As I am also currently pursuing BBA Hons. I love this field as it broadens the concept of a person. It not only helps in business and corporate world, but also helps in everyday life.

Where are you from and where do you want to go? What do you like in your home country? What are you looking for in the country where you will study?

I am from XXX. And I wish to go abroad, not specified but the preference is European countries. I love my food and culture as it is a blend of different cultures in XXX.

I wish to go and study abroad because it makes a person to pave paths for himself/herself, urges to work on his own. Also it allows to make international corporate networks. Besides this, it creates a sense of self confidence and independence.

What about your hobbies and what do you enjoy doing when you have spare time?

I love travelling. It’s a kind of passion for me.

Also I love to study the great success stories and case studies of the business world. It motivates me and urges me to become one of them.

Is there a personality trait about you that you are proud of? What is it and why?

Empathy. I understand the perspective of the other person. And I think this makes me a problem-solver.

If there is anything you’d like to say to Universities who will see your profile or if you want to add something, feel free to do it.

Students from third-world countries are equally talented and motivated. They just need to be appreciated and given a chance. They’ll become the future ‘Mark Zuckerberg’ and ‘Bill Gates’

If you can go abroad with a friend, which one and why?

My friend YYYY, she is currently persuing Computer Science. But wishes to do MBA in future, as it will prove helpful to her career.

I too want to go with her as it will help me to become more confident and a true companion can also bring the best out of a person.
