Studying medicine in Philippines is a dream come true for me. The major problem between me and my dream of studying abroad was my parent's concern for safety. Once I met the CollegeDekho team, all our apprehensions were addressed, right from my accommodation to finding like-minded people with similar backgrounds. We interacted with other parents and students and it helped establish a trust towards the country and the medical college.
CollegeDekho helped me present myself in the most consistent way by guiding me through the complete process of my application. Their way of helping me present my strengths to different schools differently was truly phenomenal. My expectations were not only met but exceeded when it came down to the critical issues of admissions and visa approval. You guys are extremely professional and prompt with every response. I cannot thank the team enough for their help. I wish them all the very best!
It has been a remarkable experience where I have been able to understand the process of dealing with International admission. The constructive approach at CollegeDekho helped me immensely in applying to multiple colleges in a short-time, without overwhelming myself. The whole thing went smoothly from Admissions to Visa here! My experience has been enormously amazing, and I would definitely recommend CollegeDekho to all the prospecting students.
Many consultants promised me an admission in top colleges abroad, it all ended after my visa rejection. Getting into a top university is much easier to dream about, I was perplexed and confused for a couple of months with the information on "How to get into Top Ranked Institutes Abroad" over the internet. CollegeDekho saved me from a lot of mess and made the nerve-racking and lengthy process of preparing for studies in a foreign country seem like a cakewalk. Wishing them all the very best!
