why you should consider an education consultancy

One’s destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things’ – Henry Miller

As a student you feel the same once you finish your school/college – you start nurturing fresh hopes for your future. Eventually you face difficult questions: What should be my next move? What course should be apt for me? Should I go abroad? To which country should I apply? Will I be eligible? There are many like you who become anxious about their career. You need to be a bit lucky to get ‘the best’, but luck will soon surrender if you avoid putting ‘the best effort’. 

To put an end to your anxiety and confusion, you can always approach an overseas education consultancy like us to help you embark on the journey, since it could be little difficult for you to complete the whole process on your own – If you can, pat yourself on the back! But prepare yourself for the ‘unforeseen’. Many students take the liberty of completing the whole application process of studying abroad themselves, but sadly they get stuck with either writing a good SOP or completing the visa process.

Considering an overseas education consultancy to study abroad does not mean you will get everything done in no time! It is a process that needs tremendous patience and wise decision, unlike hotel booking or ordering your favourite Pasta!

According to The PIE News, 50% of the international students surveyed indicated that they would definitely use their agency again, while a further 35% said they might. 

Education consultancies like us exist to help you select universities that suit you best. There are a number of reasons why you should consider a consultant’s advice for your study abroad plans:

Experience matters

We possess skills and years of experience to provide a one-to-one service. You can always trust a reputed consultancy and keep a step forward to start your journey towards your dream.

We will help you choose from a range of courses and universities and make the whole process easy and accessible for you. Our job is to put you at the right place, considering your earlier qualifications, professional experiences and your comforts and discomforts.

Do not be a cynic!

If you are not happy with the service, be transparent and let us know what your expectations are so that we can understand your mindset and help you reach the right place.

With us you will be making ‘informed’ decisions. When I say ‘informed’, it means we will act as local advisors to guide you through the entire process: shortlisting universities, editing your SOP/LOR, guiding you to select the right course and university, providing visa assistance and even helping you board that flight!

Turn your alert button off!

Some of the reputed institutions need consultancies like us to expand their markets and services globally and recruit students in a cost-effective way.

We have formal relationships with many renowned universities, which will help you to take a safe ride! We know every process and are aware of every scholarship offered by the universities.

Many institutions have a list of consultancies they work with. You can always crosscheck the record of those consultancies through references or testimonials of the students who have been assisted by them.

Multiple options

We will provide you with a number of study options. You can apply to more than one study destination that matches your aspirations. Since we have partnered with several reputed universities abroad, we make sure to speed-up your application process and keep you informed about the requirements of each university. It is up to ‘you’ how you use our guidance!

Prompt response

Our main aim is to fetch a prompt response from the universities abroad. Most of these universities receive thousands of applications from India, each semester, and it becomes difficult for them to filter out the best or the most promising students.

It is up to you if you want to test your time and money or seek our advice. We are responsible for delivering prompt responses at both ends, making the process simpler, smoother and faster.

Financial aid & coaching

Many universities provide scholarships and other financial benefits when applied through consultancies; benefits offered could vary!

Also, we provide coaching services for standardised tests like IELTS/TOEFL, at a decent price.

You may have a very good academic record, but an SOP is something that counts when you apply to universities. It should be unique and must have the key elements that the professors look for. We will help you prepare your SOP/LOR too. 

Ready for a tête-à-tête?!

You can also approach university representatives in-person at our offices in Chennai and Delhi. You can meet them and clarify your crucial doubts, and get an idea about the university where you wish to study.

Representatives are responsible for delegating important information and details about various courses taught at different universities.

Visa assistance

Visa processes differ in each country, and we are aware of those norms. Our qualified counsellors conduct mock visa interview preparations so that you become confident enough for the ‘big’ day! They know all tricks and tips to help you with those ‘brilliant’ questions bombarded at you during a visa interview.

Pre-departure services

Consultancies help students in finding an accommodation too sometimes. You can take our help to connect with any former students so that you need not worry about your staying abroad. You can also avail discounted air tickets when applying through a consultancy. Many consultancies help students with the forex so that they do not fret after reaching their destination.

Studying abroad is not easy. It comes with many challenges and new goals. It depends how smartly and wisely you use your brain to approach a consultancy at the right time.
