After registering in Shiksha, I was assigned Soorya mam as my counselor. I was extremely fortunate to have her guidance throughout the application process. She was incredibly knowledgeable and supportive, and she went above and beyond to help me succeed. Soorya mam helped me shortlist and finalize universities that were a good fit for my academic and career goals. She also reviewed my essays and other application documents, providing valuable feedback and suggestions. Mam was always available to answer my questions and provide support, even on weekends and I am so grateful for her help. I would also like to thank Shiksha for their services. Shiksha provided me with a platform to connect with Soorya mam and other resources that were essential to my success. I highly recommend Shiksha to anyone who is planning to study abroad.

I had the privilege of working with Soorya from Shiksha Abroad as my educational counselor, and I can confidently say that her commitment to assisting students in achieving their academic goals is truly outstanding. My journey with Shiksha Abroad began when I reached out to them for assistance with my application to study abroad. Soorya was assigned as my counselor, and right from the start, she exhibited a high level of professionalism and dedication to her role. Although my plans took an unexpected turn, and I ultimately didn't proceed with the application, my experience with Soorya was remarkable, and I believe her services warrant a review. Exceptional Knowledge and Expertise: Soorya's in-depth knowledge of the education systems and application processes in various countries was evident throughout our interactions. She had answers to all of my questions, no matter how specific or complex they were. Her expertise instilled confidence in me that I was in capable hands. Personalized Guidance: Soorya didn't offer one-size-fits-all advice; instead, she took the time to understand my unique academic and career aspirations. This personalized approach was refreshing and demonstrated her commitment to helping me find the best-fit educational opportunities. Responsive and Accessible: One of the most valuable qualities of Soorya was her responsiveness. She consistently replied promptly to my emails and messages, ensuring that I always felt supported and well-informed. This level of accessibility is crucial during the often-stressful application process. Adaptability and Flexibility: Even when my plans changed, Soorya remained adaptable and accommodating. She didn't pressure me into proceeding with an application that was no longer suitable for me. Instead, she provided guidance on alternative options and understood that my educational journey was unique. Attention to Detail: Soorya's attention to detail was impeccable. She meticulously reviewed my application materials, offering constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement. Her commitment to excellence was evident in every aspect of her work. Empathetic Approach: Beyond her professional competence, Soorya's empathetic approach made her a pleasure to work with. She understood the anxiety and uncertainty that can accompany the study abroad application process and offered unwavering support and encouragement. In conclusion, while my plans changed, and I did not ultimately proceed with my application through Soorya at Shiksha Abroad, my experience working with her was nothing short of exceptional. She possesses a rare combination of expertise, professionalism, and personal commitment that sets her apart in the field of educational counseling. I highly recommend Soorya to anyone seeking guidance on studying abroad, and I am confident that she will continue to positively impact the lives and educational journeys of many more students in the future. Thank you, Soorya, for your outstanding service and support.

First of all, I have to thank Shiksha Abroad, because the portal which they have designed led me to find universities, requirements easily from this portal. And then I have contacted shiksha abroad assistance. It's my luck that they've assigned me soorya as my councellor. Right from the beginning of process applying to the Universities, she always responds at any time with no hesitation at all. At the end of the day, it's job duties but mainly she maintains goodwill with students in every aspect or trouble shooting. After booking my visa slot, I was nothing aware of those questions at all. Soorya has arranged me preparation docs and assisted me how to and what to answer in very detail. She Conducted 5 mock interviews where I gained confidence. A special mention to Baisakha also. She phrased the answers for me in a very simple way to remember during mock interviews. And it's the final interview day, Big day. Never felt fear while standing in the que. It's all because of practice and the good guidance, yes It went well and it's approved. I'm very thankful to shiksha abroad and soorya.

I felt like she owns her students and provides them with best university and best service all the time. She gives her best till the end.
