Student Testimonial - Jennifer D'souza (University of Melbourne, Class of 2013)
When I began my research into the universities abroad, every one seemed so appealing and I found the choice of where to apply being tough. At that time, my senior suggested that I speak to Vishal sir as he had also consulted him when he went abroad. I booked an appointment and then onwards, all the decision making and the choices were easily done through the confident guidance of Vishal sir and his always ready to help team of counsellors. Thank you so much ILW Overseas Education! I hope you continue to help other students like you have helped me!
