Consultations with our specialized staff in studying abroad
The first step is to simplify the multiple choices of courses and programs offered, so we can select the one that best suits your needs. The better practice here is to get what we call “academic questions” which refers to one or more interviews with our qualified staff to help dismiss options according to your interests. These consultations are free, regardless of the number of interviews you could possibly need, and may be done in our offices or online.
The academic advisers of our organization will be there to clarify your doubts at all times. Once you know the program you want to perform, we will formally register you through a series of worksheets, and we will start the paperwork.
However, we have created a section on our website called programs and institutions designed to yourself to research, select, and compare the different options of studies on language programs and higher education, so that our advisers and you do not waste time to start the process. You just have to give us your details at the end of your search process and we will automatically set an appointment with you.
