In your opinion, what are the key benefits of studying abroad, and why should Nigerian students consider this option?
Studying abroad can offer numerous benefits such as career advancement, personal growth and development, global networking, academic excellence, cultural exposure, etc. and these advantages are not limited to students from any particular country. Nigerian students, like students from around the world, can gain a wide range of experiences and skills by pursuing education abroad.
Could you share some of the common challenges that Nigerian students face when planning to study abroad?
Nigerian students, like students from many other countries, can face several common challenges when planning to study abroad. These challenges can vary depending on the destination country and the specific circumstances of each student. Based on personal experience over the years, most challenges faced by students in general are financial constraints, visa and immigration procedures, cultural adjustment, language proficiency, accommodations, and a host of others.
How does Redefined Consult Limited tailor its services to meet the unique needs of each student, considering factors like academic goals and financial situations?
At Redefined Consult Ltd we treat every student with a personalized approach. During consultation/counseling, we gather information about the student’s academic background, career aspirations, budget, and preferred study destinations then we advise the student based on the information gathered.
Can you tell us more about your team of experts and their role in helping students navigate the admissions and visa processes for countries like the UK, Malta, Ireland, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, and China?
We have professionals like admissions counselors who help students identify suitable universities and programs based on their academic qualifications, and career goals, and also visa advisors who specialize in the visa application process for different countries. They keep up-to-date with the latest immigration regulations and assist students in preparing visa applications and possible visa interviews. We also give students both pre-departure orientation and post-arrival support.
What success stories or notable achievements can you share regarding Nigerian students who have realized their study abroad dreams with the assistance of Redefined Consult Limited?
We have had a series of success stories and notable achievements, but I think the most inspiring of them is about a student whose visa was denied along with his wife and he has already given up on coming to the UK. After our team of visa advisors looked at his refusal letter, we decided to push for an administrative review which took about 5 months. The refusal was eventually overturned and a visa was granted to himself and his wife.
