Welcome to “Students Speak.” Here, through a series of student interviews, we provide you with a unique look at the lives of many of our former students now studying abroad. We hope to enrich and inform all of our student visitors, and their parents, as they consider plans for their future education.
Our student participants graciously shared their own experiences about life in their high school or college with us. With our student interviews, we created a fun way for them to answer questions, speak about interesting subject matter, and discuss topics on living and learning in their new environment—the things that matter most to you!
Inside, you’ll find answers to such questions as:
- How to choose a major or program of study?
- What is most important to consider in choosing your ideal school?
- What is the international community like?
- Where are the best places to eat?
- How to benefit most from your education consultant?
- And more.
As education consultants, it’s wonderful to keep in touch with our students and hear that they’ve made a successful transition to their new school, and that they’re happy and doing well! So by sharing their experiences, we hope you’ll benefit from their unique perspectives about how to best prepare for your own future journey.
