Type of course:

As per the immigration laws of many countries, it is important that most of the international students should enroll into full-time courses and should maintain full-time student status. So, it is important to consider the final degree or diploma that will be awarded at the end of the course. The reason is that part-time classes, weekend, once in a week or evening courses do not have any good value in the job market as well. So, it is crucial to check the type of courses offered by the university before enrolling.

Name of the institution:

The important point to be remembered by applicants is that the college named ‘Cambridge College’, need not be part of the great Cambridge University. This is the arena, where many students get duped. It is also important to remember that the term ‘University of XYZ’ denoting a university, need not denote the same university, when it is called as ‘XYZ University’.

Course length:

If an institution claims that a long-term course will be offered within a short period that too with internships and job offers, the applicants must be much more careful. For instance, if an individual can earn a Bachelor’s degree within 6 months or a year, it is surely going to be an offer made by a fake university.

In addition to these signs, the applicants should also be careful, when there are some irregularities in the fee structure and errors in the official website of the institution.
