Let’s Talk by Sunita Bose is a foreign education consultancy based out of Kolkata, India. We are engaged in providing Indian students with the necessary career counselling and admissions while they are on a look out for an education from a foreign university.
For the past 20 years, our focus has been primarily on universities and colleges in the UK, and we have helped over 4,000 students find admission in mainstream as well as unique courses in some of the best universities. We also have our students excelling in USA, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sweden.
Our team of professionally-trained counsellors handhold our students and their parents from the inception of the ‘study abroad’ journey.
We help you expedite through:
• Information and guidance
• Recommending the right courses
• Selecting the right universities
• Processing visa applications
• Resolving issues
• Reinforcing confidence to ensure the
student’s application process is completed
effortlessly and successfully.
• Arrange scholarship (if applicable/available);
We approach the student’s university application process with great diligence, paying meticulous attention to details right from profiling the student, selecting the best-fit courses and universities, filling out application forms, encouraging high standards in student SOPs, completing student medical and visa formalities, guiding the parents through their financial commitments, leading to briefings on pre-travel preparations.
The university admission process differs from person to person, situation to situation. However, the journey is usually a linear progression which begins with the student’s interests, academic history and aptitude. During the initial counselling sessions, these aspects of the student’s profile are understood and evaluated for the student as an applicant for studying in a university overseas… Universities and colleges abroad look at academics, extra-curricular activities, the Statement of Purpose (SOP), the essays, and SAT scores (for universities in USA). As the student presents his/her transcripts in support of his/her application, we help the student draw out a road map in identifying the right course and the right universities. This process leads to a shortlist of 5 or 6 universities where the student’s applications are presented.
