DISCOUNTS UP TO 55% ON TUITION TO STUDY ENGLISH OR FRENCH THROUGH COLFUTURO

Do you have savings to make an immersion in English, German or French and the time has come to find the ideal place to apply? We recommend that you start your search on the Colfuturo page. The entity has agreements with 27 universities in 8 countries, which offer tuition discounts ranging from 10% to 55%. Additionally, Colfuturo does all the intermediation with the university and does not charge you a fee for the process.

As if that were not enough, the agreements are with universities of excellent quality that offer you, as a student of language students, the opportunity to fully integrate into the life of the campus (libraries, sports facilities, cultural activities, conferences.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, it’s as good as we are telling you. One of the authors of this blog studied through the Colfuturo agreement with the University of Delaware and the experience was wonderful. This post gathers some of his experiences ‘ what I learned studying abroad: about the fear of change ‘.

This was what he told us:

What is Colfuturo’s offer for people interested in studying a second language?

Colfuturo has 27 agreements with universities in 8 countries to improve English, French or German. These agreements offer a discount that can range from 10% to 55% on the value of the course. If a person applies to one of these programs through Colfuturo, they can access the discount we have agreed with the university of their interest. See more information about the Colfuturo language program .

In which countries can our readers do these language studies? Where are these universities located?

To advance English courses, we have agreements with universities in Canada, United States, Malta, United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia. To study French, the universities with which we have agreements are located in France and Canada.

Why make a language program through Colfuturo?

In addition to the tuition discount, we provide an accompaniment from the beginning of the process: we are the bridge between the student and the university.
The student will not have to communicate directly with the university, that Colfuturo does process.

Another key point is that our agreements are with universities, not with institutes or colleges; this is a guarantee of the quality of the program and additionally allows the student to have access to all the facilities of the university campus.

Do students take advantage of all those benefits they get from campus? Are they actively integrated into the university life offered by this program?

Yes! In fact, several students decide to continue their postgraduate and master’s studies in the same universities or countries after perfecting their language.

Even those who do not continue their studies give us good feedback on the program. The good thing about all this is that it is not just about attending the 4 or 5 hours of English or French classes they have, but they can stay on campus all day to attend the library, gym, swimming pools , to all spaces; They can even go to courses in other academic programs.

Do students who take a language program with Colfuturo must return to Colombia within a certain period?

No, students should not return to the country because they do not go through a credit-scholarship program. They can do whatever they decide as soon as they finish their program.

How is the application process for the Colfuturo language program?

  1. The first step is to attend an information talk or connect to the talk through the Colfuturo website. These talks are held twice a month: the second Saturday of each month at 11 am and the last Thursday of the month at 6 pm. The talks are essential because we explain how the whole process works and at what times to apply.
  2. We have a call four times a year: January, April, July and September, those interested must register during one of those calls. They must fill out a registration form, which is enabled on our website, and make a payment of 100,000 Colombian pesos. You must also send us a copy of the ID card, the resume and the proof of payment of 100 thousand pesos.
  3. From the sending of the previous information, the process of registration to the university and the visa application lasts about 3 months. In that case, for example, those who apply for the April call would travel during the months of August or September.

Does the applicant choose the university and Colfuturo does the whole process?

Yes, they take care of the registration.

What are the steps once registration is made with Colfuturo?

Once Colfuturo sends the student documents to the university, he receives his acceptance letter. We deliver that document to the student along with a letter of support from Colfuturo to make their visa application.

The visa process is the sole responsibility of the student and only when his visa is granted, the student notifies Colfuturo to make the rest of the payment to the university. Before that, the student must pay 3 million five hundred thousand Colombian pesos to Colfuturo to apply for college.

Of course, all the money that the student is contributing to Colfuturo is paid to his program, including the payment of the first 100,000 pesos.

When the visa is approved, the student pays the remaining balance to the university through Colfuturo.

Is there an age limit to apply?

None. The only requirement is that the applicant is over 18 because universities do not receive minors.

Does the Colfuturo language program offer any economic benefit?

In addition to the tuition discount, we have no other economic benefits. We suggest entities such as Icetex, FinComercio and Sufi, from Bancolombia, as a source of financing. We clarify that there is no additional benefit with them because they are Colfuturo students.

What advice do you have for students to make the most of the experience?

Review your goal and your current level in the language you want to study. It is important that they do not leave with such a basic level so that they do not need so much time for improvement. Study everything you can in Colombia so that you travel with an intermediate level and can get to practice or perfect what you learned here.

What is the profile of applicants for the Colfuturo language program?

Applicants are usually professionals, between the ages of 23 and 35, who wish to improve their work profile. The percentage of men and women is similar. The vast majority come from Bogotá DC, followed by the departments of Antioquia, Santander, Risaralda and Valle del Cauca.

Bonus tip on accommodation – Most universities offer accommodation service in university residences or in family homes, and students have the option of taking it or looking for accommodation on their own. An intermediate option is to take the service of the university for a few months and look for another option being at the destination.

Universitaria Del Estrecho – Spain Scholarship 2020-2021

You saw her in a newsletter; they told you about her at a conference, Google showed her to you on a search night. It was love at first sight. You know that it is the opportunity of your dreams, your chance to do what you have always wanted, and the scholarship that will change your life forever. Then, you decide that you are going to apply.

You read the list of requirements and start the buts. It is very big for me, someone more prepared will stay with her, the deadline is very close, I have two months but still did not reach, is that they ask a lot, who will give me the letters of recommendation, what will I write in my biography, how am I going to do with the TOEFL.

Then, in an act of courage, you decide that you can, that you are a cow, and that this postulation is not bigger than you are. You register on the scholarship website to start filling out your application, make your ‘to-do list’. I have this, I am missing this, I must get that.

Then, you start procrastinating the pending tasks because you are afraid: fear of being dreaming of things that are too big, fear of being excited in vain, fear of not being so good to be chosen; you wonder what time it was that you came up with running; You tell yourself that maybe you should try in two years when you have achieved more professional achievements.

After doing a lollipop, you become full of courage and continue filling the application. Each item is an emotional roller coaster: yes, I can with this, I am wasting my time, I am more than qualified for this, and they will give it to someone with more experience. You finish the application, send your application, and feel it is the satisfaction of the duty fulfilled.

It is a true truism, but if you don’t try the answers will always be no.

University Of Murcia – Spain Scholarship 2020

The lack of money is no excuse for not accessing graduate studies. Since development cooperation and corporate social responsibility ceased to be a fad to become long-term objectives, training opportunities abroad abound in the network.

If we google the word ‘scholarship’ we will get at least 7,600,000 results. If we look for scholarships, the options are six times greater. And for fellowship hunters there is also a chance, there are 35 million results. All in less than 35 seconds.

Some may argue that finding useful information is complicated, and I agree with them. Others will say they do not search because they do not know how to do it, but if they do not take the first step, they will not be able to decipher the route. Some will argue that they have tried and have given up in the absence of results. 

They would ask you; do you really want a scholarship? Do not you think it is worth navigating for hours in search of the call that will change your life?

A scholarship is the opportunity to study what you’ve always dreamed of paying a ridiculous amount for it. It gives you the possibility to know another culture, to familiarize yourself with another way of doing things; of reading new authors; taste other flavors; of dancing to the rhythm of unknown instruments.

A scholarship opens your mind, gives you parameters to compare what things in your city work and which ones could work better; It helps you build an international network of contacts ; It makes you understand that clothes do not wash themselves, that a homemade meal is priceless, teaches you to value the family .

A scholarship helps you to spread your wings, leaves you wanting to eat the world, to pack one suitcase after another. It is an experience that must be pursued, which is worth living.
