7. How long will it take for me to receive an offer?

It may take around 5 days to 3 weeks for you to receive an offer. This depends on the time of the year and whether the university admission team has plenty of workloads. The fastest time you can expect an offer is 3 days. Our team has contacts with the university and will follow up with the university admission team to ensure you receive your offer as fast as possible!!

8. Are we qualified visa advisors?

Our visa team consists of Level 1 OISC visa advisors that have taken over 40,000 cases of student visas and visitor visas. There are many overseas study-abroad agencies that do not have this qualification, therefore causing visa rejection for students because of the lack of trained knowledge by these other study-abroad agencies.
