FAQ

Who is an Educational Consultant?

An Educational Consultant is a trained professional who possesses comprehensive knowledge about educational placement options. An Educational Consultant strives to find the "best fit" between a student and the schools.

Why should I use an Educational Consultant?

In our society, limitless information on every conceivable topic is available literally at our fingertips. Add in the well-intentioned advice and opinions from family and friends, and this information can be overwhelming. Most of the time, unfortunately, conflicting information can confuse us.

Different children have different needs. Furthermore, all schools/programs are not created equal. Educational Consultants can help you sort out the often confusing and conflicting information to help parents avoid inappropriate, punitive, or incompetent programs.

An Educational Consultant, such as TPNL, can help you pick the “right” choice for the student after a proper assessment.

There are so many other similar educational agencies, why would I go to TPNL?

First of all, TPNL is a well-established educational consultancy which was founded in 2000.

Secondly, TPNL represents only reputed schools, colleges and universities those who have proven track record of providing quality education for years. Thirdly, TPNL visits most of the partner institutions in Australia, Canada, USA, UK, Malaysia, Singapore regularly to gain up-to-date knowledge about the development and changes. We want to counsel our students in the best way possible.

Finally, TPNL believes in offering professional and honest services to students since our aim is to see the smile on your faces. Smile that you will bring for your family too and why not! You are on your way to fulfilling your dream - their dream.

What makes TPNL different than others?

We should not compare us with others in the industry rather we want to continue working for the success of you, your family and also, for ourselves.

We do not want to make false promises; we do not want to guarantee anything. However, we do guarantee that we will put in our best effort to help you reach your goals.

Please visit us and experience the difference! Perhaps you can tell us how different we are than the others!

How much do I have to pay after getting visa?

We will tell you exactly what fees you need to pay and when you have to pay. You will register with TPNL only after you are fully aware and satisfied with TPNL’s terms and conditions.

Please remember, there are no hidden fees or charges at TPNL.

I cannot visit TPNL before 5pm, how can I meet a TPNL counsellor?

Not a problem! We are open 7 days a week. We believe Friday can be a convenient time for people like you to come and meet us. Just make an appointment beforehand and please show up.

You can also make an after-hour appointment for any weekdays if you want to visit us after our normal business hours.

I am a school student now. Can I study in any countries that TPNL represents?

It depends on which school year you are studying now and which school year you want to study in a foreign country. Different countries have different rules in this regard.

Please contact us to know specific country-related information.

Shall I bring my parents/guardians when I visit TPNL for discussing my “study abroad” options?

Yes, please. We strongly recommend our students to bring their parents or guardians. It saves time in terms of making the right decision while a 3-party (you, your parents/guardians and TPNL) meeting ensures we all know what we are doing and most importantly, doing in the right way.

Will TPNL arrange sponsorship for my visa?

No, this is impossible for TPNL to do so. We are an educational consulting agency and our responsibilities are to help you find the best institution, assist you with application and admission, assist you with your visa application and enrolment if you are successful in getting student visa, provide you with other services as finding accommodation, briefing you about pre-departure matters etc.

We, as educational advisor, should not offer any kinds of sponsorship to students. We don't!

When should I apply for admission?'

We recommend students to apply as soon as they are ready to apply. Many universities have application deadline which, in most cases, is 3 months prior to semester start date. However, good universities fill up places early. Therefore, we strongly suggest our students to apply as early as possible.

Please remember that some of our partner institutions may accept applications from us beyond published deadline. However, it is not recommended to wait until then.

Don’t put-off until tomorrow what you can do today! Right?

When shall I apply for student visa?

Again, we strongly suggest you to apply as early as possible to avoid inconvenience. Most of the visa offices have certain deadline and timeline about accepting student visa application.

We will sit with you and find out the best timeline for you to avoid any inconvenience whatsoever.

Do I have to bring certified/attested documents for my application for admission?

We are the certifying authority for most of our partner institutions. We need to see your originals to certify documents.

We will advise you when you need to get your documents certified/attested by Notary Public and/or other certifying authorities such as your school/college/university.

Does TPNL keep my passport or original certificate/mark sheet?

No! We do not need to keep your passport or original certificate/mark sheet copies in our office. You may need to bring the original copies for certification purpose only. We will return them on the same day.
