Applying to College Worldwide
We simplify the College Application Process and add an International Perspective
The college application process can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming. Once you add an international dimension to it, the various timelines, requirements, and deadlines can become a real challenge to keep track of. We simplify this process and help the student plan ahead by working with them through our ‘Five-Step College Application Process‘. This five-step formula of “Exploration- Research – Creation – Application – Acceptance” moves students forward in a consistent and steady manner until they receive their college acceptance notice and settle into their new college home. All along the process, we are by their side, every step of the way!
At Global College Advisers we take pride in helping our students and their families to a successful and smooth transition from high school to college, and beyond. Whether the student seeks to start college right after high school, wants to implement a Gap year, or needs help finding the right graduate program overseas, our guidance can make the college application journey much less stressful and significantly more rewarding.
We specialize in advising students on pursuing higher education options globally and encourage them to consider also schools beyond their home country when choosing colleges and universities for their “Best-Fit College List”. We offer four packages, of which two serve the comprehensive and holistic college application process.
Note: Aside from our packages, we have hourly options available or we can customize a package to fit your needs. Please contact us to discuss.
GCA’s virtual consulting method makes it possible to serve students from all parts of the world.
