"Hello! My name is Maria and I come from Moscow, Russia. I'm here to guide you on your path to studying in North America.

My passion for experiencing other cultures led me to visit countries like Austria, Poland, Chroatia, Ireland, Germany and the UK. Travelling outside your home country broadens your world understanding and perspective on just about anything. You experiment with new ways of thinking, or try a different way of living and you naturally experience some sort of personal growth.

Having worked in the Education industry for some time I have gained comprehensive knowledge of universities and colleges in the USA and Canada, and the process of counseling international students about their study options in North America. All this has made me value even more the importance of a good education. With my professional experience I will aim to give you the best possible advice about your future studies.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions you may have - I’m always ready to help and will do my best to enable you to achieve your dreams!"

Contact Estelle now!

''Hello, my name is Estelle and I come from a small town in the South-West of France. I can speak French, Spanish and a little Russian, as well as English.

After graduating with a first degree in Business and Languages at a French university, I moved to the UK in order to study a MA in Management. Throughout my studies, I had the opportunity to study with many international students and made friends from all over the world. This experience has not only broadened my horizons but has also changed my perception of my own culture. I am sure you will also find studying abroad a very rewarding experience!

Going to the USA to study is a very exciting experience but I know that it can also be a little stressful to learn within a different education system and another culture. As a former international student I will do my best to understand your specific needs, help you to choose the right course and guide you through the application process. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have and I will be happy to help!''

''Hello, my name is Unchulee and I come from Thailand, also known as, 'the Land of Smiles'! Before I joined the International Study Center, I worked in a variety of administration positions in International Schools in Bangkok and in student counselling.

I think it is imperative that a student advisor not only has good communication skills, but also has an empathy and understanding of the challenges, opportunities and concerns that confront you as an international student. After I graduated from university here in Bangkok, I also was an international student studying in London from 2004 - 2008. This experience has convinced me of the importance of building a positive relationship with students based on attentive and personal service.

I am a keen traveler and have visited the UK, Europe, several countries in SE Asia and Australia. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and I look forward to assisting you achieve your aspirational dreams.''
