In such a competitive global work force, it is increasingly important for professionals to differentiate themselves from the “competition” in any way possible. Studying for a Master’s qualification demonstrates a commitment to study and self-improvement. More than that, studying in a foreign country, where classes may or may not be taught in your first language and the culture is unfamiliar, shows you are willing to try new things, take risks, be open-minded and step out of your comfort zone.
However, studying overseas is not always as simple as applying for a course, accepting an offer and commencing study. A number of factors, including low scores in an undergraduate degree, a low level of English or having been out of the education system for a number of years in the work force can all affect the likelihood of acceptance into your desired course. Furthermore, every country has its own education standards, which may not align to enable direct entry into a course in a foreign country.
