With the rising trend of foreign education among Indian students in the recent years, there has been a major efflux of aspiring candidates into top overseas education destinations such as the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, etc. The US, in particular has been a hotspot for students looking for undergraduate and graduate programs in most of the popular disciplines such as computer science, public health, data analytics, engineering, architecture, etc. The US is well known, not only for its high quality research and educational standards, but also for the abundant teaching assistantships and other on-campus opportunities for International students.
Owing to this increased frequency of student efflux in the US, parents of new aspirants make the mistake of not paying enough attention to details while they prepare for their child’s overseas journey. This often results in minor to major mistakes during application, or worse, during Student Visa USA application. Even a minor mistake during the visa process, for example, can lead to delays or even visa rejection, which would ultimately lead to the loss of opportunity for the student. It is hence advised that the student must get expert assistance from those who have are familiar with the process and have already guided many students before. Getting help from overseas education consultants comes with a lot of benefits and that too at little to no cost. Read on to find out the various advantages of consulting these experts.

To get into English speaking countries like the US, UK, Canada, Australia, there is a specified English Proficiency test requirement for exams such as IELTS, TOEFL, PTE, etc. For a lot of management programs GMAT scores must be up to the mark and for securing a seat at a lot of Master’s programs, the specified GRE score is an essential. Top study-abroad consultants help students in the test coaching procedure and provide any extra guidance that students may need. Mock test are conducted which simulate the exam atmosphere.
2. University & Program Shortlisting

Getting the right fit according to his/her profile thus becomes a challenge for the student. For example, the student may apply to a lower ranked institution when there are options of higher ranked universities available. Study-abroad consultants, on the other hand are well informed about Universities and programs at all levels, especially for a prestigious study destination like the US. The consultants have specialized tools to shortlist Universities and programs tailored to a student’s profile. Various factors are taken into consideration by the counsellors such as the finances involved, student’s academics, backlogs, test scores, preferred location, etc. before the counsellor suggests likely options for the student.
