Students and families typically need to meet an education counselor for the following reasons:
- They’re unsure about which education stream to pursue.
- They don’t know what career choices they have or are best suited to them.
- They don’t know how to pursue the career they want.
- They don’t know which universities or colleges offer the best programs for the career they want to pursue.
- They don’t know how to develop an outstanding application for their dream college and feel it’s “out of their reach”.
An education counselor’s job is to develop a road map which makes this entire process less overwhelming than it seems to be.
Education Counseling takes place for the student in the presence of parents. At the time of the session, we work towards researching suitable career options for the student, which complements their area of interest and enables them to work towards achieving their future goals.
The session will also focus on answering all the queries and provide unbiased information. The objective of the counseling is to empower students to make informed career choices/decisions.
A very enlightening experience, clearing out all doubts about my future and courses. A thorough knowledge right in the first sitting enabled to be onboard that very moment. Looking forward to more sessions and a great path ahead with University Connection.
I came to university connection because I am struggling to find what i want to do and where i want to do it. I loved how the meeting was very frank and i felt like i could open up. I got an idea of what needs to be done to get into a good college. I somewhat knew what i wanted to do but I had no idea what to do about it, but now i have a plan. I look forward for the coming meetings.
I met the key mentor, Ms. Charushilla, to understand the way ahead with reference to a prospective doctorate program. Loved her energy and the way the session was conducted. Even though it was only the first session, I am walking out with some clarity and confidence that an overseas education may not be as daunting as I had made it out to be in my head. I look forward to the journey ahead.
The experience was great. Maam Charushilla was very analytical and gave a clear picture of what steps I should be taking in order to progress and prosper in my field. The whole staff is so supportive and encouraging. A delightful experience!
It was a phenomenal experience - I came here with some vague ideas and a more than a few fears, but now I am leaving more committed to my choice because I know there are solid options that I can pursue. The entire organization is extremely dedicated, helpful and professional, and all the information they provided is worth its weight in goal.
It was a very informative and enthralling session. After this session, i have a clear path as to what i would like to do and i would love to get my entire College process done from here. I am pretty sure that University Connection would get me into my dream college.
It was very informative and I have a much better understanding about the process of applying to colleges. It gave me a lot of clarity about the different universities that I can apply to and how to make my profile better.

It felt great to be able to share my thoughts and doubts. And I feel a bit more clear as to what i have to do now. Questions will definitely come along the way and i think you'll be able to clear my doubts that time around as well. Thank you!
The session was amazing with Charushilla Ma'am. When I came to UC, I was very confused about which stream to choose and I was more inclined in taking Science but after the session, I felt and understood that Commerce might be my cup of tea. Taking Commerce would be a better decision for me as my aptitude if that of Commerce background.
