One time money through education

It was quite interesting for me the information on one time money that people earn through education. Education is a business now. I had never come across a situation in my home country. There might have some as what I experienced here in London. But still I can say that I did not get any experience with the matter which I explained here.

Overseas education was very popular in India,one of the most  developing countries. People found more opportunities and better level of education in abroad than in India. Many found their step in stones there. The fascinating things in overseas education was part time work, opportunities after the education , work visa, and in some cases sponsorship visa which will lead to a permanent residency after a particular period of time.

It’s a history now. Overseas education is less in demand compared to Indian education. More opportunities, good remuneration, work satisfaction and  chances of getting more knowledge which will lead to higher level opportunities are the main attractive things about Indian education now. So it is worth to think about the money spending for overseas education instead of a deep rooted educational profile.

There are some institutions and individual people who are playing with the field of education. Education is just like a gambling for them. Once they get the money from the student they will not have much responsibility on them regarding the progress of education or any other study related things. Even if the student is not attending the classes, they will not care for it. If the student needs any help ; Yes. The education providers are ready to provide that on the basis of a fixed amount. That means money is the main criteria in all these.

So people who are interested in overseas education must look for certain things

  • Education provider that they have selected should possess a good review and credibility
  • Pass rate of the uni/college/ any institution
  • Review of previous students who had been studied over there . Make sure that these students are not the one who introduced by the uni/ college/ education provider
  • A good understanding of examination system and time frame of getting results
  • Chances of merging part time jobs ( if they are interested to do so)

In my personal opinion, overseas education is less in demand now regardless the opportunities.

Education in UK ( International )

In old days it was a big surprise if a person says her son /daughter is in UK for education. But nowadays it is a common thing. After the basic education lot of students fly to UK for higher education as if it is not a big deal. There are different reasons for this. Some people give a big value for the higher education in UK and exposure that they are going get from here. But some are here for the job opportunity and to migrate for a good future here with a stay back. But there is another group, just for a fun they come here stay for 1 year and go back. They just want to enjoy the life style of UK and plan to go back after the expiry of visa. Also there is a bunch of people who need only the certificate from UK. It is for their job hike in their current working organization or offer from new organizations. They will get these offers only on the basis of certificate. This doesn’t mean that they need to know the basis things in their study stream.

UK government has given the golden opportunity for the international students to build their future in UK. They have introduced 2 years stay back in the name of Post Study Work Visa (PSW). This will help students after finishing their studies to grab a job from here itself. The main aim of PSW was to hold the graduates in UK itself so that the students who graduated from here can give and take the benefits to UK government.

But people misapplied the whole system. Some people are still here in student visa for 6- 8 years and continually working. They used to change the course and college to get the visa. If we’re examine their progress of education, most of them are not in a progressive stage but just changing course and college to get the visa and they can work here for a long time. But with these types of students there are good students too. They have progress in their education, and they continue in student visa with completing the course and then with the higher level.

Do you believe if I say that we will get certificates of different universities in UK which cost £1500- £6000? Yes!!! That is a truth. Thus it came to a situation which gives less importance to the valuable knowledge which we develop from education but the matter of only certificate.

I believe that these are the reasons which forced  UKBA to rethink about international students and their visa status.

Where To Tap

Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed? The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.

Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed! A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer…….. $              2.00

Knowing where to tap ………… $       9998.00

Moral: Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.

Dangers in Business

Top five things people are most afraid of business


  1. VAT returns

    VAT is not a difficult thing to afraid. The only thing which need a special care is to keep proper record. You should have a clear idea about the VAT you have charged on your goods & services and the amount you have been charged on the goods and services you have bought in.  Its only the simple calculations and the common sense. You will have to register for VAT only if your turnover is more than 67000 pounds. But don’t say it as an excuse not to develop your business. :-)

  2. Spreadsheet

    Its very important to learn the spread sheet ideas inorder to comply  with the current developments since its a valuable skill.. So learn the spreadsheet with the help of a tutor or website for that. We will get lots of books which explain the theory of the spread sheet. www.spreadsheet123.com is a very useful site for the study of spreadsheets

  3. Pay roll

    We are responsible for the employee salary, tax and national insurance payments. Once we keep a clear cut system for everything payroll is a simple and loving thing.The thing indeed is the systematic control.

  4. Incorporation

    Incorporating business to a limited company involves a bit more paper work and good knowledge skill.But its not a big deal since we get a help line at Companies House that can talk to you in each and every step.

  5. Failure

    Fear of failure  may be the reason for most of the people not starting a business.People don’t want to make their family into a risk by starting a business.this is because of the rumors regarding the failure of 50% start up business in the middle of the second year.But this count is based on the closure of business bank accounts and not the closure of business.Anyway be affirmative and no matter what happens to your business , you will success in acquiring your skills and knowledge and that will increase your earning power.If you don’t give it to go you wont fail but once you don’t accept the possibility of failure , you will never get success.
