How to change course or college/ university as an international student
There can be many reasons to change your course or university, there might be a chance that you don’t like your course or even your university, you might have enrolled yourself into a course which is very difficult, may be you realized later on, that you want to change your field of study and pursue a different career path or maybe you chose an institute that does not match your needs. If you are going through any of these situations then there are following steps that you need to keep in mind.
Firstly, before taking any step, you need to check your student visa requirements and see to it you follow the correct procedures to maintain your visa. You also have the option to speak to your study department advisor at your campus or contact an Education Migration Agent at AINiT Consultancy Services for better help & advice.
In most universities, you must complete at least 6 months of the course of study that you had selected otherwise you can face difficulty enrolling yourself to a different institute. One of the situations would be getting an offer letter from the new institute in order to apply for a release letter from your current education provider.
In some cases, students also want to change their level of qualification, for example from a Diploma to a Bachelor Degree, but in such cases the visa subclass changes and you may need to apply for a new student visa. So, it’s better if you can change to a course in the same education level or higher to your current primary course.
Many institutes will require a good reason to change the course. You will need to show considerate and relevant conditions to leave the institute. Once you have decided which course or institute to select, it’s significant that your new choice matches your needs. If you think your course was difficult, you should check if the new course is according to your potential.
Before changing your institute, think about why you want to transfer to another institute, what are you looking for in the new campus! Are you looking for dynamic & suitable campus culture?
