The first question that pops up in the mind of students or parents is if it is really necessary to consult an academic counselor or a coaching expert to pursue their dreams of studying abroad.

What roles do we play?
Apart from the traditional trainers whose main role is to coach students to get good marks on the exams, an education counselor must have thorough knowledge and information about the wide range of courses that are being offered by the universities across the world, and must educate students accordingly. Our trainers at Confluence make learning interesting and impart quality coaching. Our counselors not only know the details of these courses on their fingertips and the tests required for admission but also keep themselves updated with upcoming courses to help you make an informed decision.
- Academic Planner
Often, students may not have the required information and may falter in their planning their education. This is when an education counselor must step in and help the students by chalking out the perfect academic planning based on the program chosen by the student, and the university admission periods. Our experts go the extra mile in ensuring that you are well- ahead in keeping your deadlines.
- Guide and Resource Person Counselor
An education counselor is the main person that students rely upon. Hence, the responsibility increases multifold and the counselor must move along with the students as their friend, earn their confidence and finally guide them in the right direction during the process of their admission. Since the students are not aware of the various aspects of the admission process and other important processes like preparing for tests like IELTS, GRE, GMAT etc., the counselor must guide the students in the right direction and provide them access to the right material.
- Coordinator and Administrator
The education counselor often acts as a bridge between the students, consultancy, teachers and also the universities. A counselor must communicate efficiently in various matters relating to a student’s admission and make sure that the entire process is carried out smoothly. It is often necessary to be a tough administrator to get the job done quickly. There are several tricky stages in the process of a student’s admission and our counselors navigate through them efficiently, leaving no chance for last minute hiccups.
- Financial Planner
Students may often be unaware of the financial aspects towards their education, be it loans, course fee, hostel fee, visa fee, fares and or other expenses. A lot of countries have tightened regulations regarding these matters and the students have to be up to date about the ways and means to produce the necessary documents. The education counselor should be the one to guide them through the rough patch.
- Travel Planner
With all the experience, an education counselor must cautiously guide the overseas aspirants about their travel planning. This includes assistance in procuring various documents needed for the visa application, interview, flight tickets and fares, pre departure and post arrival. An education counselor must foresee the various impending snag that a student might face during travel.
