MoreoStudying abroad is the dream of every individual studying in Mumbai. But because the application process for international education is so complex, most students turn to education consultancies for help. To help you choose, here are the top study abroad consultants in Mumbai.
If you live in Mumbai, it’s likely that most of your friends are planning to study abroad. International education has a lot to offer that education in India does not. You get better teachers, exposure to different cultures, amazing research opportunities, and a job market that is waiting to hire you abroad. But getting it is not easy. So, you have to improve your academics, participate in extracurricular activities, and start your application process. And that’s not even the tip of the ice-berg. In short, the study abroad process can be very confusing and difficult and students choose education consultants for help. This is why we have collated a list of the most well-known study abroad consultants, in Mumbai for you.
iSchoolConnect is a study abroad education consultancy with an online platform that allows students to apply to universities in the US, Europe, Singapore, Australia, Ireland, Netherlands, etc. Since the platform is AI-driven, it can easily recommend universities based on your preferences and apply to them on your behalf. The platform’s response to your SOP drafts happens in real-time! Moreover, it gives you feedback about the readability of your essay, tells you which pieces are lacking, and helps you write the perfect SOP!
You can even practice for your visa interview using one of their tools – the Video Interview Analyser. It takes mock interviews to help you prepare in the best way possible.
They have a chatbot that can immediately answer all questions pertaining to courses, universities, tests, applications, scholarships, loans, visas, forex cards, and other post-departure activities. And in case you feel the need to talk to a person, the chatbot can easily transfer your conversation to a human counselor. To start your study abroad process with them, all you have to do is share a few details with their chatbot CASIE, who will then take it forward online.

So, which one do I pick?
Before you choose from this list of study abroad consultants in Mumbai, I have only two suggestions to make-
Firstly, explore which consultancy provides all the services you need and that the one you pick has a good response time. Make sure they’re worth the amount you’re paying them to do the job.
Secondly, look at what their previous and current students are saying. They will be able to give you a fair idea about the consultancy they went to. But see to it that you ask enough students rather than just one or two. It will help you stay unbiased.
