Before my association with IDP, I was unaware and unsure of the various steps the admissions process, beginning from the University application to Visa, entailed. I wanted guidance through the entire process. Therefore, with reference of a senior, I approached IDP with the intention to get help to gain admission into one of the best universities in the world. And I am extremely glad that I came to IDP and whole heartedly thank the IDP staff that assisted me very well. I was helped to narrow down the list that included the universities I preferred, especially taking into account my GRE score and my profile. My SOP and LORs were edited at various levels and refined to match the standards expected by the universities abroad. My counsellor’s valuable advice gave me the confidence to view various aspects of the application process with an open mind. It was for this reason that the long admissions process went on very smoothly. My doubts were cleared at each stage and the mock session conducted helped me a lot in my final interview. I have finalised University of North Carolina Charlotte for MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering emphasising on Embedded Systems. Since I wanted a good academic course with significant practical exposure, I chose US for my higher studies. My aim is to get as much exposure as possible from people of different perspectives around the globe which would greatly help me in advancing my career. IDP has helped me in every stage from beginning till the end!! Thanks a lot for your guidance and support!!

To get into a globally renowned university for higher studies, I was looking forward to getting guidance that could help me choose the right college, one that would suit my profile and interests. I was hoping to get help to crack the Visa interview without any hassle. IDP contributed immensely towards my success in getting into a top college of USA. They constantly guided me and followed up the application process until I received an admit from university which satisfied my requirements. The Visa assistance provided by IDP has played an important role in getting my Visa approved. The services are overwhelming and student friendly. I had an average profile which was a barrier in getingt an admit to my dream college. The counsellors were kind enough to analyse my profile and suggest the required changes to improve my resume. I was asked to concentrate and portray my strengths which largely made improvements in my profile. Through this guided approach, I was able to recognise my weakness and work on it which finally got me into a good university and helped in receiving Visa. The well organised processes of IDP contributed hugely towards my plan to study in the US. The university screening process was impressive and accurate thereby helping me find the right set of universities that suited my needs. The mock Visa process was helpful in getting to know my mistakes and improvising my approach to get the Visa approved. The seminars and knowledge sharing sessions were a huge opportunity to learn and get to know the minute details which were needed as a student applying for education abroad. I have chosen to study Master’s in Business and Information Systems at New Jersey Institute of Technology. The quality based education offered by US universities, particularly NJIT will definitely have an added advantage and help me scale great heights in my career.

I came to know about IDP from a website and went to their Kolkata centre office to get some information on the application process for a foreign university. I expected it to be a regular formal meeting with a counsellor wherein I would just be told about the procedure involved. But I was pleasantly surprised to know that they would assist me in all areas concerning admissions abroad. The admission process would have been rather tough for me had it not been for IDP’s help and guidance. I was relieved at the thought of being in safe and responsible hands that would carry me through the tedious admissions process. My counsellor was always there for assistance and encouragement. She helped me in a way that every step I took was smooth and confident. From the beginning of my university application to the last stage of my visa, I always got helped from my counsellor. She taught me how to deal a visa interview and to get a visa in the first attempt. My counsellor helped me apply to universities that concerned my field of interest, and this brought about a huge improvement in my application form. Apart from that, she guided me on the certificates I should use. The most precious thing was her confidence in me. Initially I thought I might not be able to get admission in a good university but she gave me the confidence that I could get into a university of my choice, and now I am a student of one of the top ranked universities of USA. Over the months, my communication skills have become quite good, all thanks to IDP’s belief in my ability. My admission at University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth for the Mechanical Engineering programme has been a great personal achievement for me. Besides, I also got an offer letter from Florida Atlantic University. I am_happy to be getting world class education here at University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth as it will improve my knowledge on a range of topics. It will also give me the opportunity to interact with people from many countries. USA’s education system will, I am sure, help me in achieving my goals.

I came to IDP with high expectations as they had already helped my elder brother with his application earlier. I was familiar with the environment and was confident about the positive results that my association with IDP would bring. Once into the IDP folds, I made a list of all the universities I wanted to apply to and the universities suggested by my counsellor. Thereafter, we shortlisted the universities as per my choice of subjects and applied to them. IDP helped me shortlist universities along with getting my essays edited. They helped me immensely with the overall admissions process. During the visa process, my counsellor provided me with a set of questions that I could be asked during the interview and also helped me sort all the financial documents needed. I was asked by my counsellor to apply to a good number of universities so as to get a wider option while choosing the course I wished to pursue. All the hard work paid off when I was offered admission in Bachelors (BSc) in Information Technology programme, the course I wanted to pursue, by University of Cincinnati, along with a good scholarship. I believe the U.S. experience will help me achieve my goals as I will be able to pursue a more flexible programme and gain ample practical experience.
