International Study Destinations

Where is the best place to earn a university degree, vocational certificate or English-language school?

Every year the news media publish surveys that rank universities around the world. But do they measure real quality of education or something else? Is there even such a thing as a “best place” for study?

The choice you make should reflect, above all, your personal goals and level of financial support. We are here to lend you every support you need to assess the institution and country that best meet your needs.

Here are some questions we will keep uppermost on our minds as we work with you to find the best possible university:

How does the educational institution in which you are interested position itself with respect to employer groups?

Suppose this institution collaborates with a group of manufacturing companies. You are likely to find a program designed specifically with that economic sector in mind. If you are looking for market relevance in your university degree or vocational certificate, maybe with some intern experience, then you ought seriously to consider applying there.

What makes a learning center unique or superior to its competitors?

Let’s say the one you’re eyeing has a number of very interesting features. It claims the student-professor ratio is so small you’d be practically receiving personalized attention. Or, its engineering department owns cutting-edge technology and the experience would be next to none. Maybe the staff at Management Science counts a world-renowned business guru in their ranks.

We will listen closely to their sales pitch and check out how well the facts support the claims before we recommend any move.

What is the tuition level compared to competitors?

Lower tuition is not an accurate index of quality of education. There are many excellent educational centers whose tuition is not designed with only wealthy students or sponsors in mind. They train young people who go on to become leaders in their fields. Always link tuition to the substance of what you expect to receive in return, not just to a prestigious name.

How will this degree, diploma or training course advance my career?

The labor market is rarely constant. It shifts all the time, depending on the business cycle and other market dynamics. Consequently, your calculation has to be long term, not based on quick-to-fade trends. We will place the relevant information at your fingertips and help you arrive at a proper decision.

What about the student body, cultural diversity on campus and community demographics?

Every foreign student has to face this question head-on, not only students from the Middle East. Preserving one’s spiritual and cultural identity in a foreign environment is a legitimate aspiration. We will gather all the facts you need to determine how well those “social aspects” conform to your expectations.

Therefore, adaptation is an important factor to keep in mind. Remember, you’ll be staying here in the host country for an extended period of time, and nothing can replace the mutual respect between host and guest.

Destiny in your hands

Choosing where to study isn’t as easy as it used to be. In 1981, there were 912,300 international students around the world. That total has since tripled. Today we now see online advertisements vying for your attention and educational institutions jostling to take advantage of the growing demand for postsecondary education.

Despite the abundance of information, the Internet cannot distinguish quality in your place. We will look out for specific features like:

Teaching and professional reputation of staff
Teacher-student ratios
Numbers of graduate degrees awarded per staff member
Student services and housing support
Social environment both on and off campus
