Hi,

Yes, you can go abroad for MCA, after completing BCA.The available global options are open for the study of MCA in UK,Australia,Canada,USA and some other countries ,who are offering quality education.The students who are able to meet the expenditure usually migrate to foreign countries to pursue their higher education. Abroad they get the opportunity to earn while they study and their professional capabilities also grow.

-The candidate must have completed 4 years of education after 10+2 or a total of 15 years of education.
- Some of the Universities give preference to work experience,so in this case, they have to submit the experience certificate at the time of admission to the MCA course.
- The students must possess a good score in TOFEL or IELTS.
- The student excel in extra curricular activities as well.


Overseas MCA admission application requirements are-

- The details of all the academic records should be submitted along with the application form.
- The details of the work experience should be submitted along with the application.
- Those who have cleared the written examination successfully qualify for an interview round with the board.

Universities popular for MCA Program abroad-

- Kutztown university
- University of new Haven
- Troy University
- Virginia International University
- The University of Melbourne
- Manchester University,UK
- University of Alberta,Canada

The foreign aspects of MCA in India also are quite good.The course of MCA is amongst the top ranked courses in India with major of the Indian candidates who have earned the course from our country settled abroad. The Universities like Osmania University,JNU,IGNOU in India are offering the courses to the foreign candidates.

Multinational companies like Essar Communications, Vodafone, Videocone, Hyundai and some more are appointing Indian MCA candidates.Most of them are heading towards countries like Japan, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Spain and USA.
Therefore many of the MCA candidates are looking to go to abroad to shape up their career.

I hope the above information will help you understand the process and the clarity about the steps to be taken for the further development.

ALL THE BEST !!!!!!

Hello

 
Computer Engineer
 
Thank you for choosing Meracareerguide.com and writing to us. I appreciate your interest in studying abroad. You are right as most of the foreign universities demand a 16 years of education, meaning +12 school level and +4 college level. And there is one more important point that I need to add up in here, MCA courses are not usually awarded by well recognised foreign educational institutes. For example, USA, UK, Singapore, Australia or Germany doesn't have an MCA degree in principle. Instead they offer a Masters degree in Computer science, and yes an MSc abroad is equivalent to that of an MCA in India. As said, very very few universities abroad offer MCA degree and they are definitely not by the top universities from top study abroad countries.
 
I can this might upset you but I have a little more good news to share with you. I understand you are from a three year Bachelors degree level and this will be a major constraint for applying to USA universities. But do you know that UK universities will happily accept you though you are from a three year bachelors background? I have a handful of friends who did their BSc/ BCA from India and did their MSc Computer science in the UK. And yes, some friends who already had at least two years of employment in India are all placed now at good companies in UK like the Microsoft, Accenture and many more. You can just feel relaxed and go ahead for applying to universities in the UK. THe second good news is that you dont require any work experience for a masters level. So the procedure for applying to UK Universities are:
 
1. Keep your certificates and transcripts ready from 10th, 12th, and the BCA as well. You should have scanned copies of them preferably in a PDF format.
 
2. Next write a statement of purpose: This could be two pages typed in MS word, and please make sure you write to the point, short and crisp and do not exceed two pages. This should explain your background, your interests, career ambition and motivation for studying the MSc course.
 
3. Recommendation letters: You should obtain two recommendation letters from your BCA department. Professors who taught you are the best ones to write such letters. They will recommend you as a potential student to study at the abroad university. The letter should be printed on the official college letter pad, stamped with official seal and also signed by the referee.
 

  1. IELTS test: You should register for this English test and try getting a minimum overall score of 6.0. Although top Universities usually prefer an overall score of 7.0, most of the universities will be even okay with a 6.0
 
With all this you are ready to send in your applications for MSc Computer science course. Some of the top universities in the UK for this MSc Computer science are listed below:
  1. University of Cambridge
  2. University of Southampton
  3. University of Edinburgh
  4. University of Nottingham
  5. University of Birmingham
  6. University of Manchester
  7. University of Bristol
  8. Loughborough University
  9. University of Glasgow
  10. University of Bath
 
Please hurry up with the admissions as it might get closed by mid June by most of these Universities. Hope this helps. All the best.
