Student Speaks

Pankti Shah, MSc in Behavioural Science for Management, Sep 2016 intake

ILW team are the best education consultants for studying in the UK. I had been to many overseas education consultants, but the information at ILW is concrete, its personal – they take care of smallest detail while guiding you. They counsel you to extent that you establish your academic and career goals. I got through several Institutions in the UK. I would have spend hours of counseling with the ILW team and they finally suggested that I take up the University of Stirling offer.

I am now working in the UK on the Tier 2 visa! Thanks to Stirling’s exceptional Masters programme that got me industry-ready!
