“Professionalism comes to my mind first when I think about the most significant value adding attribute toward the success of this consultancy. They outline the capabilities and past achievements of the student so diligently that you would eventually not miss out on any options which suit your profile. I specifically liked their ways of conveying information in a consolidated format where you would get all information you would need in a single file. Their work ethics and structure of work are significant coefficients of their success in this business I believe. Some other attributes I would like to mention here are punctuality, friendly behavior, point for useful contacts, sincerity and ability to keeping up with the changing world of information. Of these, I personally found friendly behavior to be the most appealing. They have helped me within and beyond their realm of capacities just to make it happen for me. Also I think that I made a right choice here in choosing Globe Ed as my academic consultant because of their encompassing knowledge about the universities around the world and most importantly, their requirements for a successful future student.”

“It was the summer of 2014. I had just completed my graduation from St Xavier’s, one of India’s most prestigious educational institutions. I was at a crossroad as to whether I should seek out a college to pursue my MBA as a “fresher”, or perhaps start to work with the hope that this work experience would eventually come in handy, as the most renowned institutions of the world require a professional background as well. A friend recommended Globe Ed to me, and it was here that I was fortunate enough to meet Smriti, one of Globe Ed’s founders. On hearing me out, she pragmatically advised me to do what matters more to me, completing my education at the earliest, or a patient progression of the next stage of my career. In her opinion, in case I chose the latter of the two, I would have to lay a lot of emphasis on my work experience, as it is perhaps the most important criteria top universities sort out. The next three years involved my ardent participation in my family business, which involves management, finance, marketing company products, and international communication. By August of 2017, I had completed three full years in my family business. Consequently, I sat myself down with Smriti and discussed the potential colleges I should be applying to on the basis of my GMAT score, work experience, area of expertise and graduation performance. We spent the next one month writing essays, personal statements and re-searching various other data pertaining to my target colleges, all of which were in the top 10 of UK. I would like to take this opportunity to add that there were times I was a bit lazy and a tad bit overconfident, and it was Smriti, who reminded me that until I received an offer from a college, nothing was set in stone. I am proud to state that I received an interview call from four out of the five colleges I applied to, and cleared them all. My choice of College is Oxford and I always refer to it as our achievement and not mine when conversing with Smriti. Even at the interview stage, Smriti emailed to me an array of questions, most of which proved useful, as I was able to use the same to my fullest during the interview.”

“I wish to thank Smriti for providing me with exemplary services. She was extremely professional, prompt and reliable. The support and guidance extended to my children and me while deciding universities, filling out university applications and completing visa formalities was commendable. I especially wish to thank Smriti for her tireless patience in quelling my anxieties and for being readily available to answer my queries with kindness. She understood my requirements and worked towards fulfilling them. My children were motivated and encouraged by Smriti and today they are proud students of the University of Essex and the University of Toronto. I would strongly recommend Globe Ed to anyone who wishes to pursue higher education abroad.”

“I was recommended Globe Ed by a common friend in Kolkata. When I recall back to my first meeting with Smriti and Martin, I just had the idea of taking a sabbatical. At the very onset Smriti heard me out of what my needs were. She helped me to find a tailor made situation which included my area of interest and future career prospect characterised by endless patient counselling sessions to make me arrive at a satisfactory decision. Smriti and Martin were very helpful in three areas which assisted me in my success: 1. A very systematic analysis of which course and university to apply to, 2. Inputs and suggestions in my essays for both university application and Chevening, and 3. a mock interview session which helped in building confidence. If today, I am about to embark on an incredible experience of being a Chevening scholar as well as a prospective student of UCL, considered one of the best universities in the world, I owe my success more to Smriti and Martin than to myself. We were a great team. Keep doing the good work guys. Here’s wishing more power to you. All the best.”
