Be Prepared


Studying abroad requires immense research on the country, program costs and course requirements. By starting early, you're not only better prepared, but you also show just how passionate you are toward studying abroad; you portray that you possess the drive and the desire toward building a successful career for yourself.

Once in a Life Time Opportunity

Studying abroad is a once in a life time opportunity; an experience that is both unique and life changing. By studying abroad, you are bound to encounter different aspects of the world, while broadening your skill set. Additionally, being educated in a manner different from your own country sets you apart in the job market.

Assure them that it's Safe

One of the concerns parents have when it comes to pursuing a semester abroad is the issue of safety. While it is understandable for them to feel this way, assure them that you will be in touch and take precautionary measures to stay safe at all times.

"I approached the Edwise staff in Delhi as I have been thinking of going abroad to do some courses in makeup artistry. I wasn't sure of which country to choose and which university to choose and when I visited the Edwise office I was guided so well and everything came clear to me. They not only helped me in the country that I should choose but also helped me in selecting the right course that would be suitable to my interest. One thing I liked about the staff was that they were very patient and helpful and kept guiding me till the last step. I found the experience very good as today I'm sitting in the chosen country as I desired with their help. I thank my counselor who has been very patient and helpful in every step.
