Educational Advising

The doors of U.S. educational institutions are open to all qualified students from around the world. The United States is proud of an educational system that attracts students and scholars from across the globe.

Education Advisers in Cape Town,  Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria provide guidance for study in the United States of America. They offer accurate, current and comprehensive information about all accredited U.S. higher Education institutions through orientation sessions and individual consultations, and maintain collections of useful publications for use by advisees.
