Should you use the services of an agent?
In general terms, it will be a good idea to use an education agent if you are not sure of the process or how to obtain your student visa.
Make sure to find out the following:
- The agent represents the school/college/University
- Is the agent a reputable agent?
- How many years of experience as an agent
- Never give the agent the original documents (academic results, testamur, etc) they belong to YOU only
- Make sure the copies of the documents you supply the agents are certified before a Justice of the Peace or Notary
- If the above documents are not in English, obtain an authorised Translator in your country
