Meet the students we've helped
Thank you to the organisation for assigning someone who respects and genuinely loves working with students. Her understanding of processes and competence made it all possible.
Wow this company is the best. If you need help in schooling abroad, they helped me from beginning to end and the communication is excellent. They helped my family to fulfil our dreams of relocating and studying abroad.
Such a great communication between the agent and the student. She made sure everything was in order and that things were well organised. Whenever possible she was able to help me, explaining doubts and was very patient, especially for not being in the same country. It was 100% great communication and interaction.

1. Can you help students from anywhere in the world?
Yes, our advisers can assist from any location. Counselling sessions are done via Skype, Zoom or a digital platform that works for you, as well as over the phone. All paperwork is received via a secure portal so advice and assistance can be offered to anyone without the need to come to our offices.
2. Do you have a special agreement with the institutions?
Yes, in most cases we will have a contract which allows us to represent the institution. This also means that the institution will have given specialised training to our study advisers and that we have direct access to the admissions teams.
3. Do I need to do a foundation/pre-university year or can I go direct to the first year?
This will depend on your grades. However, in most cases, you should be able to enter the first year if you have high grades and have studied for at least 12 years. It will also depend on your chosen country and institution so please discuss this with your study adviser.
4. How long will my visa last for?
Your visa will generally be valid for the duration of your course. However, this will depend on the type of visa you applied for. It may be possible to move to a post-study visa, depending on your course and which country you study in. Please speak to your study adviser for more details.
5. How long will my visa take once I have applied?
It will depend on the country and the type of visa you have applied for. There are also fast track visa application services for most countries. Speak to your study adviser to find out more.
