Why does one need to visit a Consultancy?
Studying abroad is a major decision that a student makes and considering the amount of investment one makes both financially and emotionally, its highly recommended taking help from experts as one small right step can take you closer to your dream and a wrong one can simply crush the dream.
Throughout the process students come across numerous situations when they feel the need of proper guidance and that is exactly what a good consultancy helps you with, make right decision at the right time.
Before entering the process, student may have questions like what major should they be studying? What career path they can choose with the major? Which country could be the right destination for that particular major? What tests are required to be taken and by when? What makes a university “The right University” for the individual student? Can scholarship be available? If yes then how? What documents are needed? What could be other requirements and so on. A good Consultancy will have answers to all of your questions.
A good consultancy will not just answer your questions but will also recommend you the Do’s and the Don’ts. Proper guidance will lead you to a better future with admissions to right university and help during the visa application process.
Knowing where to go is good but it’s always better to know how to reach there and a good consultancy knows that.
Most will argue that everything is available online and then there are friends and relatives, but aren’t most diseases have their remedies available online? Yet do we not choose to go to a doctor? This is one of the biggest decisions of your life that can make or break your future so be wise and take professional help.
Students seeking foreign education would often find themselves wandering in a large pool of information. Various destinations available such as USA, Australia, Canada, the UK, India, Germany and Japan require tremendous study to find out which one of such destinations are best for their academic and career success.
There are plenty of online sources including government websites, where students can learn about these education destinations, the pros and cons of being a student there. However, students often find it difficult to find out what they need to know.
They need to have a proper understanding of the culture, climate, cost, education quality, and livability in such destinations and it takes a tremendous amount of research to have a clear idea of all those.
An ideal consultancy should be able to summarize and help students distinguish which destination is the right match for them and what academic path would suit them best.
Once they have found their prospective destination, students often need to prepare for their language tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, JLPT and such. An ideal educational consultancy would provide high quality test preparation courses with plenty of resources in terms of books and materials and mock tests.
What to consider while finding your trustable education consultancy in Kathmandu Nepal?
First thing recommended, to look for, is the credentials of the education consultancy you are visiting next. Check where they have come from and where they stand today.
For example, what kind of certification do they have? Various national and international certifications often hard earned make some of the institutions credible, check if they have any. For example Edwise Foundation was the first Educational Consultancy to have been certified by AIRC (American International Education Council) and there are only a handful number of consultancies that hold such certification worldwide.
Do not forget to “Rely on someone with Credentials”. Some will definitely suggest you avoid using the consultancy and save some money but we recommend you invest some money and accomplish your dream.
Start with how long they have been in the field with success. Ask their experience in number and in facts rather than just sweet words. Check if their counselors actually have enough knowledge in the field of abroad studies, the country you want to go for your studies and the universities there. Find out if they are certified counselors with proper knowledge of the field.
Some example of certification you can look for are QEAC, USATC, CCEA, British Council Counsellors Training, etc. Experienced, certified and honest counselors are the ones you should be looking for as they know exactly what is needed to make your dream a reality.
How do you check the expertise?
Ask plenty of questions to find out what kind of expertise your consultancy possesses and if you can rely on them especially since you must rely only on those with credentials and expertise.
Experience comes with age so the longevity of the organization is very important. Do not hesitate to ask how long the consultancy has been into business. How experienced the counselors are.
Do they have taken proper trainings and can handle your case? Have they had an experience of studying abroad, especially in your preferred destination? Ask as many questions as possible but make sure your questions do make a sense because the experts who are proven do not enjoy being doubted.
Do proper researches before going to any consultancies, go through their websites, and check the profiles of the counselors/advisors. A good Consultancy will be transparent and will not hide the profile of the counselors.
Ask for facts and figures such as number of universities they work with, number of student clients they have handled over the years, and so on because “Numbers never lie” .
