Brunel University is one of the top universities in London to study.  Aman Juneja, an alumnus of the university shares his insights on how to seek admission in foreign universities and his experience in Brunel.

Q. Tell us something about your educational background.

I studied Commerce in classes 11 and 12. After this, I pursued BBA (Bachelor’s in Business Administration) from Bharati Vidyapeeth Institute of Management Studies and Research, where I specialized in International Business. I worked with my father in his firm for a year, and then went to Brunel University and pursued MSc in International Business.

Q. How did you go about applying to the university? Did you get selected for admission in other universities as well?

I started exploring universities in Australia and New Zealand, and then decided to apply to a couple of universities in UK. That is when I contacted Study Overseas Global, and then helped me out with my applications. They guided me about the examinations that I had to give, the documents that I needed. Other than Brunel, I got selected in universities like The University of Southhampton and The University of Birmingham.

Q. What was the process followed by Brunel?

I appeared for IELTS and Pearson Test of English, and scored well in both of them. After this I submitted the documents that were required, along with a couple of Letters of Recommendation to Brunel University. After screening these documents and taking into account my scores, I was selected for their MSc (International Business) program.  Study Overseas Global guided me throughout the process.

Q. How do you think education from a foreign institution is different from that of an institution in India?

I think that foreign universities focus more on practical knowledge and hands on learning, something that is not so common in Indian universities. For every assignment, I needed to research extensively, talk to my professors, read a plethora of credible research papers, and then submit my answers. I felt that this way of learning made me grasp what I was studying. Rote-learning was never encouraged at Brunel.

Q. What are your plans for the future?

I want to get into Indian Revenue Services, and I will be taking the UPSC examination. I feel that what I learnt about International Business will complement the field and give me a lot of advantage. Studying abroad also made me appreciate the importance of practical knowledge and taught me management in the true sense of the word, and these are attributes that will greatly help me in this arena too.
