It is not surprising that for parents who choose to educate their children abroad , the search for a suitable school becomes the most important and at the same time the most difficult question. Many people try to find the right version themselves, looking through numerous ratings and websites, but sooner or later it becomes clear that to see objective differences, advantages and disadvantages among such a flow of information is quite difficult - and in this case professional consultants for training abroad come to help.
Usually the first meeting with such a specialist is a detailed conversation: the consultant identifies the existing educational experience, your wishes and educational needs, and those or other preferences. You can be asked to bring a report card from the current school with grades, recommendations from teachers and the class teacher, the results of tests and examinations - academic (in terms of subjects) and language tests. The consultant listens attentively to the student and his parents: the most important is to understand what exactly a specific person needs, what goals he plans to achieve, what his expectations are from education abroad.
After collecting the necessary information, the consultant selects suitable educational institutions for you: explains in detail the features and merits of each, the differences between them, strengths and advantages. At this stage, the personal experience of each specialist plays an important role: his visits to theschools and training centers, inspection of campuses, meetings with directors and teachers, work experience with a particular educational program. In addition, the importance lies in the impartiality, objectivity of its evaluation - our experts rely on your requirements and wishes to help you in a particular situation.
After the list of priority schools is approved with you, the process of collecting and filing documents begins. Remember that the selection of a school can take one day, and maybe a couple of months - here the process is purely individual and completely depends on your requirements and preferences. The consultants will help you form a list of required documents, tell you how long it will take to collect them - our specialists are always aware of the deadlines of schools (the deadlines after which the application can not be submitted) and will do their best to meet the deadlines.
Simultaneously the future student begins to prepare for a personal interview-interview: in the overwhelming majority of foreign schools this is an indispensable attribute of the admission of a new student. From the success of the interview very much depends, because it usually holds an official representative, a member of the administrative team or the director himself. Equally important is the introductory essay that the student always writes on his own: our specialists will help you to decide on the topic, form a competent structure, give valuable advice and recommendations - a great work experience allows for a truly professional approach. At the same time, no consultant will write an essay in lieu of a student: only recommendations are given, because it is a particular student who will study at a foreign school, and he needs to demonstrate his level of knowledge and preparation.
After you have submitted all the documents, the waiting process begins: some foreign schools are ready to give an answer in 2 weeks, someone needs a month and a half. If the decision on your admission is positive - be prepared to pay a tuition fee: this is usually about 10% of the total cost of the course, but in each case the consultant will update the exact amount for you. Payment of the deposit is a confirmation, fixing the place for students, proof of the seriousness of your intentions, therefore, it is not worthwhile to delay payment of this amount. In this situation, there are exceptions: for example, there are large and prestigiousCanadian schools , which after a positive response require a full, one hundred percent payment of tuition fees. But be calm: if you have visa or other difficulties, the cost will be refunded after deducting a small registration fee.

Our consultants will help you collect this package of documents, translate the necessary files and even write you to the consulate at convenient hours. If the decision of the consulate or embassy is positive and you have received the visa, you can start collecting the remaining documents: make out medical insurance and the list of vaccinations, leave permission (if the child is underage), buy and order the form, if it is accepted in the chosen school, high school students can already choose Subjects for a personal training course.
