Our academic consulting group is dedicated to helping families and students find the best high school or university fit, confidently navigate the often complex application process, and in the end, gain admission to desired schools/colleges. We like to compare ourselves to a sports coach. You do not need a coach to play sports; however, with a top coach you can win in the most competitive ranks and achieve your greatest potential.
We believe that our executive management experience gained in the top Western companies sets us apart, because academic consulting is much more than just providing help with an admission process. We will advise on how to shortlist the best school according to a candidate’s career aspirations, budget, and other factors. Our other services range from helping our client create a focused and informative resume/CV, through to fine tuning each element of the application package, to conducting mock interviews and even reviewing an application which has been turned down to create a re-application strategy.
Legal and ethical matters
PRODIREKT has excellent relations with hundreds of schools and colleges, but we will never put their interest before that of a family or student that we counsel. We frequently visit schools all over the world, meet with their principals and staff, inspect their premises and accommodation facilities, and attend their seminars. Our school visits are crucial in learning what is special and unique about those schools, so that we can better match them with our candidate’s strengths, skills and talents. Our goal is to offer you a wide education choice, with an expert advice that is impartial and based on your academic and emotional needs.
Although you can expect complete guidance from us, we will never do the work for you. As a reputable and internationally accredited education consultancy, we strictly adhere to the principles of academic advising, which prevent us from unethically interfering in the admissions process. For example, in case of a university application, we will never write your essay or motivation letter for you, but we will do much more to assist – we will help you recognize your strengths and learn how to express yourself effectively in your motivation letter.
We also like to remind candidates that the admissions process isn’t just an “essay writing competition,” it is important to show an admissions committee that you’re qualified and prepared to make the most of your academic experience. It is even more important that our students learn to make the right choices independently, which will help them excel in today’s highly competitive and challenging environments.
