RE: How do I do an MS in architecture in Harvard ?
RE: Funds for PhD programs
Hey Amandeep, PhD programs are usually at least partially funded if not entirely. Most universities cover tuition costs, living costs or simply the costs for textbooks and research materials. However, generally most colleges abroad do fund your research programs completely. It is a general norm for universities to either accept an application with grants or otherwise outright deny the application. The reason for that being that most PhD students are discouraged from engaging in external employment or at least reduce their working time, especially in the USA and Canada. With the money you are provided, you should easily be able to buy a car and rent a house, but don't expect to do anything extravagant with money provided.
RE: Student forex card for studying abroad
Owning a student forex card although not compulsory, offers many advantages over using cash,debit or credit cards. This is because, a forex card for one is much safer to carry as well as it much cheaper because cash is sold at a much higher cost compared to money in your forex card. Another advantage of the forex cards are that you can load a lot more money compared to carrying cash around. All these advantages coupled with the fact that a forex card can be used as form of identification makes it a better alternative to finance. Hope this answer helped!

In order for you to stand a good chance in getting into a top university abroad, an ideal GRE score of 320+ and 6.5/7.0 in IELTS is recommended.
