Navigating a foreign education system can be a challenge, with different deadlines and extra exams adding to what’s already a stressful time. But with our overseas education consultants, we can help open the door to the most prestigious institutions around the world.
As a multilingual, international team, we know first-hand what it takes to study abroad. Our overseas education consultants are hand-picked for their personal experiences and professional achievements – and we have an impeccable track record supporting students to secure undergraduate, postgraduate, PhD and MBA places in universities from the Far East to the West Coast.
A personalised plan
Whether it’s to further your education at the very best university or simply to immerse yourself in another culture or language, the reasons for studying abroad vary. That’s why our overseas education consultants are committed to getting to know you and your motivations, so they can provide honest, tailored advice throughout the process.
We always aim to match students with consultants that are familiar with the institutions they will be applying to, including the various entry requirements for your target courses. Every consultant receives regular training from the Figtree team to ensure they’re working to the latest guidance and best practice, and our commitment to knowledge-sharing means you’ll have a whole team behind you.
Harvard, Yale, MIT – the US is home to some of the world’s most sought-after schools, and we’ve worked with students applying to the very best. Our dedicated team will help at every stage, from writing personal statements and essays to preparing for SATs and interviews. With our step-by-step support, resources and mentoring, plus support on the ground courtesy of our affiliation with a specialised overseas education consultancy service in the US, you’ll have a whole new continent at your feet.
Research – we have a huge database to draw on, detailing everything from entry requirements to college culture. Our in-depth knowledge of the sector allows us to provide the impartial advice that can help narrow down your search.
Academic assessments – we’ll look at your current achievements and your future aspirations, advising on the steps you need to take to focus your efforts in the most effective way.
Exam preparation – applying to study overseas usually requires additional assessments, with universities often running to their own timetables. We will guide you through all the requirements, ensure you hit every deadline and provide targeted tuition where needed.
Interview training – many of the top international institutions will require an interview as part of the application process. So we’ll help hone your interview technique to ensure you make the best impression.
Visa applications – if you require a visa to study abroad, we’re here to guide you through the process and support your application from paper submission to consulate interview.
Support on the ground – our services don’t end when you accept an overseas offer. We understand that studying abroad is a big step, so we’ll always be on hand to help you settle in, navigate your new university and make the most of your overseas experience.
