When it comes to studying in Europe, you have many options but each university is different, and the admission process can be complex and time-consuming. That is why we strongly recommend that you start collecting information well in advance.
It is ideal to give yourself 9 – 12 months as a preparation period, from collecting information, applying and getting accepted into a university, to getting ready (student visa, housing search, etc.).
You can still apply to a university when you have less than 5 months, but keep in mind that your choice will be limited, as many universities have early application deadlines.
Part I: Counseling & University Search
Guidance counseling at EN EuroEducation is not just about talking to you as a student and proposing universities. We take our time to understand your personality, what you want to learn, and what you need to study in order to have a career in the field you’re interested in.
We then analyze all the information and create a list of universities which meet your criteria. This process requires not only time but also a high level of expertise.
Step 1: Initial meeting
The first consultation is designed to get to know you as a student and to hone in on your objectives. We will also look at your student transcript.
Step 2: Personality test
We ask you to take a personality test to help you see yourself from different perspectives. Together with the first meeting, this is an important step for counselors to understand each student and then guide them in the best possible way.
Step 3: Mind mapping
In order to find a best-fit university, we go through a “mind mapping” phase. During this exercise, we ask you to put out all your ideas, aspirations, concerns and emotions in any order, and then put every factor in the right order. This will help you make your goals clear so you can come up with a plan to make it happen.
Step 4: Customized Research & University Listsv
Based on the results from Step 1 to 3, we will check universities in 28 European countries and identify the ones which meet your criteria.
Step 5: Briefing on selected universities and departments
We will share the university search results and go over each proposed university in detail, so you have a chance to ask questions and get the clarity you need.
Step 6: Decide on universities to apply
We finally help you decide on which program(s) and at which university(-ies) you are going to apply to.
*The process of Part 1 consists of thorough counseling and communication between the counselor and the student. This also includes unlimited Q & A via email when students have any questions.
Part II: Admission Supports
After you decide which universities you will apply to, we will set up another meeting to explain the admissions process and also to discuss a strategy to get an acceptance letter.
The Admissions support includes the following:
1. Help with application form
Support students with the application and admission process of the university they have selected. This process can take a few months, depending on the requirements of the selected universities.
2. Set timelines to navigate application process
We will check what kind of documents universities you have selected require, and then, we will crate a schedule to navigate you with the whole process based on the application deadline date.
Some universities require prospective students to do an interview and/or their own written exams. We can also help you with scheduling an interview as needed.
3. Help with personal essays and interviews
Most European universities require you to write essays on a given topic as part of an assessment. Some universities may require you to send a resume as well. Unlike in Japan or few other countries, there is no template that you need to use for your resume. Some universities also request a personal interview as part of admissions process in order to learn more about students’ personality, motivation and presentation skills. EN EuroEducation will help you fully prepare for upcoming essays and interviews.
4. Advice on the final decision
If you are accepted by several universities but cannot decide on which one to attend, we can also help you make the right choice.
TOEFL, IELTS, SAT
Unless you graduate with a full IB diploma, in most cases, you’d need to submit an English language proficiency test such as TOEFL, IELTS. Depending on the program, SAT can also be one of the requirements. If you need help in this area, EN EuroEducation can refer you to experts who can help you bring up your score.

Why does EN charge fees whereas others offer free counseling?
Many organizations or companies that offer free consultations are “agents” who work on commission. They can offer free services because they get paid by universities they partner with for referring students. EN EuroEducation is not an agent, we are totally independent and we don’t receive any money from any universities.
We follow the Code of Ethics of IACAC (International Association for College Admission Counseling) and provide guidance counseling in the best interest of the students. Our goal is to help you discover yourself, find your best-fit universities and get accepted.
The fee is paid in two installments (deposit & upon completion) but in some cases, we accept installment payments.
