DSB International School

The Red Pen Consultancy won a contract to offer professional careers and guidance counselling to students of DSB International School, Mumbai. The services offered included customised guidance programs to students applying to colleges across the world including the United States of America, Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom. All DSB students achieved entry to their colleges and universities of choice. The Red Pen Consultancy transformed the Guidance and Careers Counselling service at DSB through their personalised approach and strong relationships with universities and colleges abroad. As the former Principal of the school, I would strongly recommend their services to any prospective clients.

The fundamental role of independent educational consultants is to help students explore college opportunities and find the right place for them to succeed academically and socially. IECs don’t get students admitted—they help students demonstrate why they deserve to be admitted at appropriately chosen schools. They help students find colleges they might not have heard of—often out of their region—and they help students put their best foot forward.

Here are 5 things families should consider when looking to hire an IEC:

  1. Does the IEC belong to a professional association such as IECA with established and rigorous standards for membership?
  2. Do not trust any offers of guaranteed admission to a school or a certain minimum dollar value in scholarships.
  3. Ensure that the IEC adheres to the ethical guidelines for private counseling established by IECA.
  4. Find an IEC that visits college, school, and program campuses and meets with admissions representatives regularly in order to keep up with new trends, academic changes and evolving campus cultures.
  5. Do they attend professional conferences or training workshops on a regular basis to keep up with regional and national trends and changes in the law?
