Student testimonial: Master’s degree graduate in immunobiology gaining business skills at ILAC Vancouver – Jelena’s story

Our recent attendance of the Canada Partnership Forum in Vancouver, organized by the International Language Academy of Canada (ILAC), was an ideal opportunity to get together with our students who enrolled in ILAC’s language courses or college programs. During the education event, we had the pleasure to spend several days with Jelena, a 25 year old master’s graduate of Immunobiology from Belgrade. PRODIREKT academic advisors counseled Jelena last year and helped her successfully enroll in the Business Administration program of ILAC’s School of Business. READ MORE

As a well-established academic consultancy and education group, year by year, we have been steadily growing and expanding not only the number of our programs, but also the extent of our activities in the education market. 2018 has been another record-breaking year for us, and we are especially proud of the number of students who had the opportunity, with our guidance, to enroll in high schools and universities or experience enjoyable language learning all over the world.

In search of best boarding schools in the UK – we have found Stonar

In September, the representatives of PRODIREKT, together with a small selected group of other agents, were invited by Stonar, a leading UK boarding school, to be their guest for a couple of days and to visit their premises. Stonar laid on an exclusive coach to transport the group to the school. The guidance and care offered by schools’ representatives as soon as we boarded the bus in London signaled something very pleasantly different. Kasha, Rachel and Judy made sure that we didn’t miss anything…and that didn’t stop until we sadly parted company with them at the end of our familiarization trip. What follows is our testimonial to what we experienced and just a taste of what our students and their parents can expect to find at Stonar. READ MORE
