Once the students have sat for their final exam at various local testing centers in Kathmandu, NIEC counsels prospective students for their higher education in foreign countries. To select the right college and university for a Nepali student is very difficult, but well-trained counselors provide all the necessary information about colleges and universities and the lengthy processing system for the student visa application in various embassies. NIEC’s student counselors undergo an intensive training before they are delegated to provide any information on colleges or universities in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, Cyprus, Singapore and India.
The counsellors assist prospective students in obtaining the necessary documents prior to applying for admissions in a foreign university or college. They then counsel students into putting together the best case presentation possible to obtain a student visa to study at international colleges and universities. Regular seminars are held at NIEC by various international colleges and universities to inform the students about the courses that are available in these colleges and universities. In addition, general ways of life in the country in question, its culture and religions, cost of living and the student visa application formalities are explained explicitly.
