If you do, you don’t need to worry anymore because the certificate obtained from the test can be extended after a few years.

1. Discuss with your partner
Before proceeding to the next steps, it is a good idea for this grand plan to be discussed with your dear partner. Are you ready to take the family with all the consequences?
Leaving home, even beloved homeland, for one, two, three years is not a short time. There are certain things that must be sacrificed if you want to invite your family to accompany us during your studies in the destination country. Employment, savings, children’s education, parents’ opinions may be examples of things that can be considered well before making this big decision. And certainly remember, every family has different conditions. Not always inviting spouse and baby to accompany us to the destination country is better than leaving (temporarily) in the country of origin. And you who know better the condition of your family, not someone else.

For those of you who have the opportunity to study abroad through scholarships, please look at what facilities can be obtained while studying there. How? Googling, check the related scholarship website, ask the recipient of the same scholarship in the previous wave/year, and pay attention to the guidebook/contract given if it has been obtained. Make sure you know whether the scholarship provides family benefits as long as you live there or not. Different scholarships, maybe different policies. So, make sure you really know about this, not because of the words.
3. Living costs, campus, and destination city
These three things are related, but don’t let your priorities be reversed!

Make sure the campus that you are aiming for has a department/field that you really are interested in and has the appropriate modules to develop yourself and increase your knowledge.
But when bringing family, other considerations must be added. As much as possible dig up the deepest information about the standard of living in the city where your target campus of study. Many websites provide this kind of information, or you can easily ask directly to students who are from the same country like you who are/have studied in the city. Make sure you get an idea of how much money needs to be spent to meet the monthly living needs, each city has a different standard.
