Hello, I Am Cornelia Fuertes

Welcome to Global CollegeAdvisers!

With a passion for personal growth all my life, my journey into Educational Consulting started as a busy mother of three children. I can assure you the topic Education has never really left our dinner table to this day.

Originally from Munich, Germany, I went through my own educational adventure mainly in Europe: Munich, Vienna, Florence, and a short time in the U.S. 

Years later while working in public relations and marketing for the entertainment, arts, and education industry and after having moved to California, I had my first experience of what applying to college in the U.S. is all about when my oldest son started attending high school in California.

A Revelation

When it was time for him to start the application process for college,  I was blown away. What a different and quite complex process this was compared to the straightforward university applications in mainland Europe!

After witnessing and participating in his college application journey, I was excited for him to be admitted to UC Berkeley. A year later his sister started out at UC Santa Barbara.

Learning from our older children, who both have graduated college by now albeit with a heavy load of educational debt, our youngest son, a high school Junior, will apply to colleges in the U.S. as well as to universities overseas. 

 

This will expand the options for our son and, once acceptance letters and financial offers come in, will help us as a family to make an educated decision not only in terms of personal and academic fit but also economic, financial fit.

It is exciting to see the many options higher education around the world is offering students these days.

Apart from colleges and universities in the U.S., we at GCA encourage students to take into consideration higher education options at excellent universities around the world.

No need to speak the host country’s language with so many English-taught Bachelor’s and Master’s to choose from!
