Our advisers will visit your school to attend your careers and further education day events. Brochures and hand outs will be provided during the event.
Speakers are available for short presentations on "Study in the USA." This is a brief and informative introduction to the US system of higher education, the types of institutions available, and the application process and timetable. The power point presentation can be modified for a duration of 20 to 45 minutes. Short videos may be screened (if time allows.)
The above are offered to schools free of charge. Please notify us at least one month prior to your event to avoid disappointment.
Our advisers can take away some of the heavy-lifting from your staff. We will come to your campus to provide short, concise, and accurate advising sessions to your students. These one-by-one sessions have a duration of 15 minutes per person, during which your students can ask basic questions about choosing a college or university, the options available to them, and the application process. Your school will book the student appointments and keep a steady flow of students ready to sit for their sessions with the adviser. Students complete a short questionnaire before the session which will give our adviser a head start on each individual advising session of 15 minutes. You decide how many hours of advising are needed for your school. We will make every effort to meet the dates and times that are best for your students. Our office will invoice the school directly after the conclusion of the advising cycle that you have selected.
S$188.00 for a two-hour block of advising services (8 students).
