Study global

In this day and age, an academic degree is almost as significant as any valid ID. Diplomas define career prospects and serve as the passport to the professional sphere. A certified level of education has become a need. In a well-connected and globalized world, employers increasingly value graduates with international schooling.

Studying abroad is life-changing and presents students with the opportunity to see and understand new terrains, cultures, customs, and traditions of other nations. There is a better sense of growth and independence when a young person lives and studies in a foreign land. More important, overseas education also gives students the chance to meet new friends and establish or enhance global networks.

Certain nations allow international students and their families to transition to permanent residency. International studies make it convenient for people to move into another country.

Pursuing studies overseas broadens one’s horizons beyond what local education could give.

“Although it is a well-known fact that we have hardworking and brilliant educators in some of the prestigious Philippine universities and colleges, it is still a sad reality that our education curriculum is not recognized internationally. Most of our work experiences and background are not enough to be considered for direct migration,” says, Charity Delmo, CEO and founder of Ideal Visa Consultancy Laguna. “Thus, studying abroad will help you gain a globally competitive and recognized education, work experience, and skills to compete with the workforce and other migrants globally.”

Ideal Visa Consultancy (IVC) Laguna caters to visa application services to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the US, the UK, and other European countries, centered on education and reunification. The Philippine-based migration firm has been in the business since 2014 and has helped hundreds of clients pursue their overseas education. From practical training programs in dairy farming in New Zealand to high-demand skills in engineering, information technology, e-commerce, business management, and personal support, IVC has successfully aided clients to join colleges and universities, as well as post-secondary institutions abroad focused on specific industry skills.

“Given the pressing challenges of the present times, it is really important to afford our kids with international education. Doing so will allow them to hone their knowledge, broaden their horizons, and allow them to be open to various opportunities that are essential in developing their career path,” says Jan. “It will also allow them to interact with people of different cultures and backgrounds thus making them active players both locally and on a global scale.”

IVC envisions learners to meet the demands and challenges of the times. “Students should not fear exploring beyond their comfort zones. A lot of support systems are available to help them achieve their goals,” says the international education consultant.

“IVC will definitely help them [students] achieve their dreams of getting a global education. Doing so will enable them to discover their fullest potential and contribute to solving problems within their respective communities,” she explains. “It is also worth considering to grab the opportunity of studying and living in countries that have the best healthcare systems during the pandemic.”

Clients are assessed and provided with a course recommendation through their educational background and work experience for the past five years.

Applicants for international studies should be at least high school graduates. Depending on the chosen course, some schools require English proficiency exams like IELTS. Additional qualifications like experience in farming, age requirement, as well as proof of driving proficiency are required for skills-based programs like dairy farming in New Zealand.

Estimated costs range from ₱ 280,000 to ₱ 645,000, which comprises the preparation of documents and requirements before leaving the Philippines and other charges. Payment is settled step by step and not in bulk. The fees vary depending on the preferred country of destination as well as the course. The initial cost includes the health insurance, enrolment fees (if any), and the initial tuition fee deposit or the entire tuition.

With hundreds of partner education institutions worldwide, IVC has been able to help clients avail of scholarship grants usually in the form of tuition fee discounts depending on the applicant’s qualifications and the criteria set by partner schools. In this manner, IVC finds the most efficient ways possible for clients to be able to enrol abroad while also making it easier for students to afford an education at par with the global standards.
