Parents Corner

Admissions abroad are only the first step. Settling abroad alone for education can be both exciting and daunting for a child. It becomes imperative for parents to provide the right kind of emotional support and be there for their children. Keeping yourself updated without being overbearing is important. As the child steps out of the household to be independent, parents can make sure that they are always just a step away to step in if required. Mental & physical health are prerequisites for a good education, and parents have to be involved to ensure both.

Safety Abroad

Safety Abroad

Most local governments are careful about providing safe and secure environment to international students in their jurisdiction. However, there are some do’s and don’ts that students can practice to further enhance their safety. At Glinks, we communicate these practices as part of the pre-departure briefing to make sure students begin their studies abroad fully armed with this knowledge.

Reporting

Reporting

Depending on the age of the child, institutes have policies in place to share the progress reports of students with the parents. Glinks helps you understand what to expect from these institutes in terms of your child’s progress.

Accompanying Your Child

Accompanying Your Child

It’s every parent’s wish to be supportive towards their wards, especially at a crucial stage when they are starting a new life abroad, adjusting in a new setting. Many parents prefer to accompany their wards during the initial period of settling in, to help them be comfortable, and plan frequent trips subsequently. The purpose of these trips is to let the student know that they’re not alone, and that emotional support is always at hand. Some parents may want to visit their children more often to spend quality time and help them adjust in a new country. Glinks helps in providing avenues for parents to reach their children through appropriate applications.
