So you’ve always dreamed of studying abroad. You have already imagined spending your college years in a foreign country learning from esteemed professors, hanging out with a diverse group of friends, and going on weekend trips to nearby tourist spots. You know you want it, but what’s getting in the way?
Historically, Filipino students are disproportionately disadvantaged when it comes to applying to foreign schools. Aside from the country’s previous 10-year basic education system at the time when almost every country requires a 12-year pre-university education, there is also not enough infrastructure in place to help those who want to study abroad.
This is where Edukasyon.ph’s new consultancy service comes in. The country’s leading online platform for schools, courses, and scholarships here and abroad now offers face-to-face consultancy service for those interested to study abroad. With a no-cost thirty-minute trial, the Edukasyon.ph team can help you review your CV and get started with the application process. The team can also help you prepare for the requirements and the interview with admission officers.
Edukasyon.ph’s admissions consultancy will connect the student to the Head of the Study Abroad team, Julie Ko. She served as an Associate Enrollment Director at Hult International Business School. During her time there, she has identified and recruited suitable candidates for the school’s specialized master’s program. She has also increased the number of applicants by 57% in 2015 compared to the previous year.
For some time now, Study Abroad team has provided useful content to encourage and help Filipinos pursue studies abroad through its blog. What’s left to do now is to figure out how to actually make your application package attractive to the college admissions officers in foreign universities.
For the team, the most important part of the admissions process is that students feel empowered and truly believe in their ability to succeed in higher education abroad. There’s always a struggle for students to express why they deserve higher education at their dream school. Most times, applicants find it difficult to present their experiences in a more compelling and universal way. “Ultimately, the whole process of applying for a school abroad is a self-discovery journey. And we are here to guide students through that,” said Ko.
There’s no one way to do this thing. Everyone is a different case. So it helps to have somebody on your side, like a mentor, who can help you translate your experiences and make a real narrative that is real, unique and, at the same time, relatable. Edukasyon.ph will help you get started in the preparing for your application through a face-to-face consultancy at the company’s office in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
