Learn About The Study Abroad Expo
“The biggest piece of misinformation is that an IEB matric isn’t enough to study overseas. That’s a fallacy. The Global Education Expo was designed to fight against this type of misinformation. It is best to hear directly from the universities at this Expo”
- Nico Eleftheriades, Managing Director.
What Our Partners Think
We work with some of the leading institutions in the world.
I heard it costs R1 Million a year to study overseas... Is that true?This depends on the institution you apply to, the course, and the country e.g Bachelor of Medicine can cost +R810,000/year whereas a BComm degree starts at + R270,000/year for tuition. We always recommend you come in for a free consultation to go through your options together to see what fits your budget and which university offers the best course for you.
Do I have to pay for my tuition upfront?No, you are normally required to pay a deposit and your semester fees are due before you are enrolled. You can pay upfront if you wish. The university will state what deposit amount is required to secure your place at the university. This commonly can be between $1,000 – $6,500.
Why do you request bank statements before you will assist?We are required by the universities to sight bank statements. By ensuring you will have sufficient funds, we are avoiding wasting your time as well as our time by processing applications to study that you will not be able to pursue due to lack of funding.
Why is it so important that I give details of any previous visa rejections?A visa rejection is associated with your passport number. If the agent who is assisting you doesn’t know about it, we can’t work to change the circumstances that caused the rejection. It will then flag up as an undeclared previous visa rejection on your next visa application, even for a different country.
Can I still apply to study at an overseas university even if my grades are not high?Yes, you can do a foundation program first. A foundation course is a program that will prepare you for an undergraduate degree at university. They are specifically designed for international students who want to study abroad, such as in Australia, the UK, Ireland, Europe, Canada, or the USA. Studying a foundation course will help you attain the correct level of qualifications and skills to pursue a degree at university – it will also help students who require additional English language support. A foundation year bridges the gap if you don’t have the right qualifications to go straight on to an undergraduate degree program. It provides a broad introduction to subjects of your choice and helps you gain valuable academic, study, and English language skills.
