Student Testimonial - Vinayak Kamath (Federation University of Australia, Class of 2020)
I had a smooth transition from India to Australia, the entire study abroad process was seamless and every detail was meticulously looked into by the team at ILW Overseas Education. The best part aside from the service is that it is bang opposite NMIMS University. I am still in touch with my counsellor and I just availed of their help in preparing for a job interview, three years after leaving the Indian shores. Thank you Rupali ma’am!
