It has always been my dream to study at the London School of Economics (LSE), and I don’t exactly remember when I’ve been getting myself together to achieve this goal. Hailing from a small town in Uttar Pradesh, this dream was equivalent to walking on the Moon.
People, including my neighbours and relatives, used to make fun of me when I mentioned it to them. However, those taunts did little to bring down my confidence. I was pretty good with numbers and statistics, and economics was my passion. My parents were supportive of my desires, and that was enough for me.
After completing my higher secondary board examinations, I started asking around for some advice on how to prepare myself to study abroad, but I didn’t get any. I looked up on the internet, but the information I managed to gather from the blogs and forums was quite vague.
It is during one such casual browsing session that I stumbled upon the websites of Edwise Overseas Education Consultants and UniRely. I got interested and explored their websites, focusing on every detail.
At first, I opted for the free expert counselling service on the website of Edwise and booked an appointment with their branch in Delhi. My father used to go there on business often, and on the day of my appointment, I tagged along with him.
The education counsellors at Edwise were not only knowledgeable but also extremely generous and patient in their approach. Neither I nor my father was that good in corporate etiquettes, owing to our humble background, but they were genuinely nice with us.
They helped me through all the steps of submitting my college application to LSE and also provided considerable aid in setting up my Visa application.
I also signed up for the overseas education counselling at UniRely to help me obtain first-hand advice from a mentor at the LSE. The session was quite beneficial for me, as I’d several queries that needed to be resolved. In fact, both these organizations helped me a lot in achieving my goals.
At present, I’m here in the UK, pursuing my PhD in econometrics and living my dreams. I’m also in touch with students from my hometown, as well as other parts of India, and I provide them with suggestions from time to time on overseas education counselling. I’m now familiar with a number of organizations, who offer expert advice on abroad studying namely.
Coming to the costs of overseas education counselling, you’ve to see it as an investment, which will bear fruits in the long run. It can cost anything from INR 50,000 to INR 1,00,000 or more, depending on the organization, and the types of services you opt for.
Get in touch with any of these organizations and start walking on the path of your dreams, just like I did. Wish you all the very best for your future endeavors!
