Understanding the Overseas Education Specialist:

Education is a very complex good or service to understand. You have to go through education to experience its benefit. There is no real substitute for the immersive experience that an overseas education brings with it. It’s hard to appreciate from a video or a leaflet just how powerful, life-enhancing and rich this experience can be. The best way to truly understand the impact of an overseas education is to talk to alumni about what they experienced and how it helped shape their career success. The Overseas Education Specialist will be able to tell you these stories because they hold a lifelong relationship with every student they helped into overseas education as their first step on the pathway to global career success.

You will be able to spot an Overseas Education Specialist by the way it:

  • References its strategic partnerships with universities and their top faculty
  • Talks about its relationship to destination employers on-the-ground
  • Has a stakeholder perspective on cross-cutting applied research projects locally and internationally
  • Talks about line-of-sight into the fast-paced, exponentially-growing sectors of the new co-creative economy 5.0
  • Brings a coaching approach to understand where you see your career future – and from that perspective starts to counsel you on where your best starting point lies today in order to start and step into that career future without further delay
  • Navigates the complexity of the overseas education system to co-create a unique approach to the education you need in ways that totally meet your own, individual and specific needs
