ILW team are the best education consultants for studying in Ireland. 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 the extent that you establish your academic and career goals. I got through several Institutions in Ireland. I finally selected UCD as its the best business school in Ireland. And well, I earned some great scholarship to study at UCD, thanks to ILW’s counselling and help!
