Number of Indian students going abroad to study has been rising over the past few years. While, availability of high quality education, worldwide recognition, wide range of disciplines to choose and cutting-edge research opportunities are some of the eye-catching features that attracts students from India, the global exposure that international universities offer enables students to reach great heights in their career. Established in 1991, Edwise International, a leading overseas education consultant with 24 branched across the country, is a one-stop solution to fulfill the abroad study needs of all students. "From the moment the students consider about studying overseas, we handle the complete process; starting from identification of the course, destination, institution, test preparation, passport, travel, accommodation and so on. Everything is taken care of till the time the student reaches their institution abroad," assures Sushil Sukhwani, Director, Edwise.
Edwise was found in the days when there was no apt source for genuine information on overseas education. Sukhwani remembers, "When I decided to pursue an education abroad, I struggled with the lack of information that was provided in India. I travelled to Australia with the urge to meet different universities and before I took a MBA degree at Bond University in Australia in 1990, I visited around 15 universities there to identify where to study." Having had global exposure, the experience of studying abroad motivated Sukhwani to go back and spread the word about education in Australia. Along with Sukhwani, there were many students then, who aspired to study abroad and the task of getting accurate information on courses, institutions, finance, visa, travel and understanding the application process was daunting. Since 1991, Edwise has brought the concept of overseas education to the doorstep of every aspiring student by making it affordable and devoid of cumbersome procedures. Today, Edwise provides information regarding higher education in UK, U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Malaysia, Dubai and so on.
"We see to it that the required documents are thoroughly compiled, attested, highlighting the areas essential for a well presented error free application and we also interact with each student till they reach their destined country and institutions," claims Sukhwani. Like Sukhwani, many of the counselors at Edwise carry an education or work experience from abroad and they have been trained by international experts to guide students professionally in selecting the right courses at an ideal university. Therefore, Sukhwani is proud to speak about the trainers who are the strong pillars of his organization and according to him, students achieve the desired results in various examinations like IELTS, TOEFL, GMAT, GRE, SAT, PTE because of the extra ordinary training that he could impart at Edwise.
At present, Edwise has a team of over 400+ staff and Overseas Educational Advisors include the people with vast professional experience in the field of advising students about the various study options available abroad, keeping in mind their profiles and needs. The team assures a complete guidance from the time of student enrollment. "Our counselors are always in touch with the students in order to ensure that students are well informed and updated with the status of their application and one of the convenient services that we offer is the prudence in 'mock visa interviews', where our 'visa counselors' interview students, on the frequently asked questions," explains Sukhwani. The interview analyzes the student performance and the students are informed about the 'do's and don'ts' of the interview.
The team of Administrative Staff is another important chain responsible for the admission process of students, consists of efficient people sharing different responsibilities like visa assistance, preparing and dispatching application documents on time, regular follow-ups for timely delivery and overall co-ordination and so on. The institute also provides complete guidance on educational loans and assistance in a quick and easy manner. "We are associated with a list of nationalized banks offering loans at reasonable rates and we also have tie-up with well known private banks and financial institutions," says Sukhwani. Edwise guides students in the entire procedure, starting from applications, to required documentation, eligibility criteria and selection of banks. The institute also helps students on scholarships available in India, available overseas and overall at institutions. "We represent over 575 universities and have 24 self owned branches across India and through our continuous efforts we attempt to assist the students to conveniently accomplish their goal of studying abroad," says Assan Sukhwani Director, Edwise International.
Today, Edwise plans to set up more offices in India as well as abroad with a vision to be the world's leading overseas education consultants. "In the coming year, we would be increasing the portfolio of institutions we represent, the courses we counsel for as well as destination countries we represent," concludes Ajay Sukhwani, Director, Edwise International. Undoubtedly, Edwise is the right place to gain new vigor for the young minds to explore the world.
