How Education Consultant Helps You Make the Most of Overseas Study Opportunity?

Posted by Aussizz Group on April 25, 2017

Dear International students!!!

Have you wondered why do you need an education consultant? How they can help you in equipping yourself better for a promising career. If you are wondering why these poignant questions are raised here, there is a very simple reason for it. No one had answered these questions before to the student community.

International students have fallen into a habit to solicit advice from education consultants without understanding what more can they do for you? This is simply because no one has attempted to define their role in your student life and how they can mentor you to make better career decisions.

Hence, without much ado, we are going to delve into this topic and explore why you need an education consultant in this first entry to the Aussizz student corner section.

Who is an education consultant?
  • A person who has ample knowledge on various education and career opportunities.
  • They provide solutions by identifying student needs. They will help you customize and design your Master career plan.
  • They are accredited to provide the right education solutions by the professional associations within the education industry.
  • They will engage in measures to maximize the education outcomes to ensure student success.

 

What can they do for International students?

Education Consultants lend a vision for International students who are harboring hopes of studying abroad in faraway places by being the bridge between students and their education destination.

They can explain the cultural difference that an international student would come to expect and prepare them better for the experience.

With countless knowledge about career opportunities and education pathways available for international students, they can help you make an informed decision and help address student expectations.

They can help students in other practical things like saving money (by helping students avail for scholarships and bursaries), cultural exposure (by organizing city tours),preparation to study abroad (by arranging pre-departure and post arrival orientation sessions) and give a slice of international student life (by organizing university study tours).

How can they help you during emergency situations?

Since Education consultants guide students every step of the way, they function as student guardians when a student is in an entirely new country. They can help put away worries of parents whose child is studying abroad by being an emergency contact under unexpected situations like sickness, flight cancellation etc.

They can mainly help students by educating them about what is the right thing to do when it comes to academic emergencies such as

  • How to avail for extra help when you are lagging behind in terms of course progress?
  • What can do when your enrolment gets cancelled due to unforeseen reasons?
  • What sort of procedures an international student has to follow if there is an emergency situation that compels them to return back to their home country temporarily
  • How can they guide students towards the right path when a certain deadline is past., in case of visa renewal date or a course intake date.

How can they help students specifically for visa related matters?

Visa matters can lead to complicated life situations if a student is not guided correctly. It is a crucial advisory role where the right consultants can ensure that your student life is trouble free with no black dot on your immigration history.

They can help you specifically to,

  • Understand and help meet criteria’s for the grant of a successful student visa
  • Help interpret the conditions put on your visa and how to follow them diligently
  • Understand and excel in curial interview based criteria such as genuine temporary entrant (GTE). A personal touch in preparing for academic interview with universities and with immigration authorities will help boost the confidence of an international student and goes a long way in securing the visa for the student.
  • Make students understand their obligations as a student visa holder and how to lead a spot free international student life.
  • Help them with extending their student visas onshore by giving them right advice.

Not to forget how they can function as your friend and your first contact onshore too. An education consultant can help you lend a caring hand to organize accommodation, overcome culture shock, help you socialize with networking opportunities and make you part of their social circle to overcome loneliness and inhibitions.
