In addition to assisting in the selection and application process, we also provide supplementary services to help students get the most out of their admissions process. Although we aim to enable access to university studies immediately, we can provide advice and counseling on language, foundation and preparation programs for students who under-perform academically. We are also part of a large network that connects us to many local and international professionals with experience in languages courses, test preparation and translation services. As we send students around the world, we have also developed connections with admissions advisers and decision-makers at many universities abroad.
For Francophone students, English language classes are sometimes required in order to help them attain the IELTS or TOEFL results needed for a successful admission to an Anglophone university.
Depending on the student’s needs, we can discuss the benefits of options such as intensive English, business English, or programs that combine English with extracurricular activities. We can recommend language schools, professors for private tutoring, as well as summer programs and help students choose which path towards a better command of the language is right for them.
Depending on whether a student is an undergraduate or postgraduate applicant and the country they are applying to, there may be exams they will be required to pass. The most common undergraduate exams are the SAT and the ACT in the US, and the most common postgraduate exams are the GRE and the GMAT. The IELTS or TOEFL English proficiency exam is required for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and additional subject- or university-specific exams may also be required.
At Global Education Experience, we ensure that students are aware of which exams they need to take and how far in advance they need to book them and prepare for them. We regularly connect students with trusted professional tutors to give them the best exam preparation possible.
During the admissions process, international students often need to have their academic transcripts and letters of recommendation translated to English. We work with students and their teachers to ensure that their letters of recommendation present the student in the best way and highlight their academic achievements. Working within our team and with our trusted translator here in France, we take away the stress and confusion of finding a translator for letters of recommendation, official transcripts and certificates, and any other documents that need to be translated from French into English.
