Study Abroad

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Alisha Mashruwala is a Partner at OnCourse and a Harvard graduate, and is also a Psychology major with a minor in Economics

I am working with a renowned Fashion Designer since the last 3 years. My undergraduate degree was in Psychology. Though I don’t have a degree in designing, I feel that I can do well as a designer. I have heard of programs for professionals in the US. Can you please suggest such programs and what is the duration of such programs?
—Surabhi Bala

You may consider The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program. It is most suitable for students with some college experience and who are clear about their interests in the field of design. The typical student has a bachelor's or an advanced degree and work experience in a field other than design. Admission to the program is based on the prospective student’s maturity; desire to pursue further education, previous accomplishments, and potential for growth. Applicants must have graduated from high school at least two years prior to be eligible to apply. The average duration of the AAS program is 1 to 2 years.

I am interested in studying Computer Science for undergraduate studies. I have heard about a Five-Year BS Program offered by a few American colleges. What is the difference between the Five-Year BS program and a regular BS Program?
—Anjuman Mishra

The Five-Year BS/MS Program is geared toward students who would like to pursue an education beyond the BS/BA, allowing them to achieve greater breadth and in-depth knowledge of a particular field. It is best suited for students who would like to try their hand at research as well.
The Regular BS Program is a four-year program. It is not as research-oriented as the Five-Year Program. The courses offered for the regular program may not be as in-depth as the Five-Year Program.

I am interested in studying MS Management in UK after completing my BA Economics from Delhi University. Do I need to submit a GMAT/GRE score? And do I need a work experience for applying?
—Meera Aiyer

Most MS Management programs in UK do not require a work experience or a GMAT/GRE score. However at universities like LSE (London School of Economics) a work experience from 3 months to 5 years is an advantage and all non-UK graduates must submit a GRE/GMAT score. However, please note that GMAT is highly recommended for candidates from less quantitative degree backgrounds.
