What Edwise Students says…
“Hi, I am Pooja Das and I will be pursuing my Masters in Fashion Retail Management at University of Arts London (LCF) this year. This is the biggest opportunity for me and would not have been possible without EDWISE. When they say “Edwise is one stop solution for all international study needs” they are 101% correct. I decided to go for my masters while I was working with an organization. It was quite challenging for me to manage my MA applications and my official work. I heard about EDWISE from one of my faculties at NIFT and went to their office for assistance. My counselor has been a great adviser and mentor to me; she helped me to apply for all the universities, informed me about the events related to my chosen universities and updated me with the interview dates and their results. She also assisted me in applying for my visa and was always there to answer my queries promptly. The counselors are very professional, friendly and helpful. The relation with EDWISE however doesn't end here; you are always welcome to seek advise even after you get selected by your desired university. My experience with EDWISE has been wonderful. Thank you Team Edwise. “
