IVY UNIVERSITY TOURS – See it to believe it!

What websites, brochures, ex-students or counsellors could tell would still fall short to what your first-hand experience teaches you. That is why, we bring to you a first-of- its-kind orientation tour of leading US universities, specially designed for students of 9 th ,10 th and 11 th standard students.

On this 15 day campus tour across top league universities of USA, students will be given a comprehensive guidance to life at these campuses. Generally, students enrol into admission preparatory programs, refer to brochures and websites of these top universities, or if they are lucky they get to interact with ex- students. But while making the biggest decision of their academic future, is second hand information just enough?

In today’s competitive world where overseas education market is flooded with all cadres of universities and courses offered by them; it becomes imperative that a student is extremely clear of their options. But achieving that clarity requires a close first-hand exposure to some of these top universities in USA that would help them make the correct choice.

Parents, on the other hand, invest a huge fortune for overseas education of their child. Their sole focus is to make sure that their child’s future is secured. Hiring finest trainers, connecting with other students in their social circle, exchanging information with peers are probably the only sources of making the decision for their ward. Even after this sometimes children fail to find their spot in the big world out there in abroad because of their lack of first hand exposure.

That is what, we are here for. This tour aims at providing children an early exposure to the top league of Universities in USA so as to develop a clear vision in them and ingrain a sense of clarity in their minds. It is truly the best investment to make for ensuring your child’s happiness and success in USA.

About Us

“Guiding a million dreams to their ultimate destination”

The IVY University Tour idea was envisioned by Mr. Pranav Doshi & Ms. Chaitali Doshi; Founder and Co-founder of Edmission Consulting respectively. With over two decades long experience of counselling students for abroad education, they realized that it was very important for the students to physically visit the universities and understand the requirements of these top universities and also to get a feel of where they will be spending 4 years of their life doing their bachelors.

They have been Alliance Partners with the prestigious Madhavi Desai Consulting for over 14 years and then branched out to start their own firm with three offices in Ahmedabad, Baroda and Surat. Every year the firm counsels 400-500 students and many of them have successfully made it to the likes of MIT, Stanford, UCLA, Oxford, UT Austin, Georgia Tech, Purdue, and Carnegie Mellon. They have successfully counselled students wanting to pursue majors like MBA, MPT, MPH, MHA, IT, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, Engineering, Architecture, Food Technology, Graphic Design, Law, Psychology and many more; to destinations like USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai.


The Tour

“It’s not just a matter of 4 years in student life; it’s about the best formative years of your career”

IVY University Tour was born out a vision to give 9th, 10th and 11th grade students a first-hand experience of studying in USA’s top universities. In a close-knit group these students will get to visit some of the top universities, see the campus, feel the vibe, interact with counsellors and shortlist their preferred destinations to study.

Earlier, students aiming to study abroad would look up for information on websites, call up some relatives, or interact with local counsellors and zero down on some universities to study. Often when they secure admissions based on such partial information, they face a lot of difficulties. But not anymore, with IVY University Tour every student will allow students to experience and tour the campuses they plan to make their four-years homes and feel the local culture.


THE OBJECTIVE

For students of such tender age, figuring out a university where they would like to pursue their education is an overwhelming task. The tour aims to greatly minimize this confusion and chart a long term vision in the minds of these students. It will not only be an enriching educational tour but also an exciting summer adventure that will always remain etched in their memories.
