Q:   Why is Shiksha Grading better than other ranking bodies?

A: 

For the students looking forward to study abroad, the ranking of a university plays a crucial role in decision-making. However, the availability of multiple rankings online can be overwhelming for the university's international audience. All the top ranking bodies rank universities on the basis of different parameters, which can be hard to understand for first-time study abroad aspirants. Keeping this in mind, the Shiksha Study Abroad has launched Shiksha Grading. It caters the Indian audience and ranks all the universities with Indians as their target audience. What makes Shiksha Grading stand out is that the website uses the aggregate of all the publicly available university and course rankings from top-ranking publishers and maps it into 9 buckets - A++, A+, A, B+, B, C+, C. In this method, universities are graded by country and courses are graded by availability at the college in a particular country. With the help of this, students will no longer be required to check multiple ranking organisations to know about the performance of a particular university. Students would only be required to check Shiksha Grading – a platform where all the top rankings from popular ranking groups would be normalised and all universities would be graded into 9 buckets - A++, A+, A, B+, B, C+, C.

Good country to live in. Satisfied with the University.
Tips: After coming to this college students can easily take up a job here and get settled. There are many opportunities. I did not experience much transition after coming here as I have lived like this in India. England is a good country to live in and be more modern. In my university the professors are good and they are very helpful and so is the infrastructure but the fee is a little bit much as compared to the facilities but it is okay I am satisfied with it.

Money is not well spent.
Tips: No matter how much the University provides academics students have to look for employability skills. Only those who are in the eyes of the staff will be able to take up roles. This will fall on the level of enthusiastic participation. Scholarship and laptop allowance are there for free. UK is best but UEL is not even in average in the performance. I got lot of opportunities but I am afraid not everyone would be getting not even 5%.
Likes (Student Life): There are many things that go to keep the students active in campus. Though sometimes everyone goes for various part times and are not able to participate but is worth. Every now and then you will get goodies and good enjoyment. The campus is very impressive.
Dislikes (Internships): Mostly the department is trying to enhance the options, but unfortunately, there is nothing to learn or the quality of the learning or encouragement is not fruitful. It is better to take any analytics course than IBM. Doesn't fill the late for opportunities or employability. Internships are not much to go for practical exposure. They say they have a lot of plans but are uncertain.

Cheerful and intellectual experience
Tips: Scholarships are only offered to students who have been consistent in their academics and have a GPA of 3 and above. Also speaking good English and being an active participant will get you a lot of opportunities and you will be able to connect with people across the city and campus.
Likes (Public transportation): The campus is very well connected and many options are available to commute like buses, rental cycles, trams, etc. Some students even get bus passes issues through the local depot. You can even get assistance from the University office. The tickets are also very cheap and helpful to international students who do not have their own conveyance.
Dislikes (Value for money): It gets very difficult for international students to settle down here due to very high living costs and rents. Also, food options are not adequate and it would be advised to cook your own food and buy your own groceries. Part-time jobs are also very less here and if you are able to secure then pay would not be that high.

Easy going university. You need to improve your skills by doing practical projects
Tips: There is not much of a cultural change because you can find many people from your home country India here. I got 2500 pounds international scholarship for only the first semester and for the next 2 years, the chances of getting scholarships for Indians is nearly 0 per cent. I like the course and the modules offered at the university.
Likes (Public transportation): It is well connected to central London which is 20 minutes of train ride. The bus charges are low compared to London living standards and for buses, 24hr transportation is available in the city. The last train ride to the university is at around 11 pm in Central London.
Dislikes (Internships): We have careerzone in the University which helps students soft skills required for the jobs and guides students on how to prepare job-ready resumes. They will conduct the mock interviews as well. The internships through the university are available only to UK and EU students.
