Formed back in 2009, Smapse is a company that specializes in helping the students find the best place to study abroad. To date, they have helped over 30,000 students from all over the world to find the perfect placement.
Their expertise lies in their knowledge of the education systems, language requirements, visa regulations, and cultural differences of the countries where they offer placements. An expertise that helped one young Polish student, Lukasz, on his journey to studying in Germany.
“One of the key reasons we are so successful in helping students find the best place to study abroad is our team of experienced professionals”, said Nick Vorotniy, founder of Smapse.
“Having a team of education consultants who have first-hand experience of studying abroad, with myself being an international alumni, we understand the challenges and opportunities that come with studying abroad”. As for the student who wanted to study in Germany, he had already applied and failed multiple times.
“We work closely with the students to understand their goals, preferences, and requirements. Based on this information, we can recommend the best course of action and institutions”.
For Lukasz, they identified together seven universities that would fit well, reworked his resume and reworked his motivation letter. They connected the dots between the students’ particular interests and specific professor’s and university research, demonstrated his strengths and highlighted previous accolades, showing the university what he could bring with him to Germany.
“Reviewing the student’s academic background, language proficiency, and other relevant factors are an essential part of our work”. Using this information doesn’t only help to deliver a great application, but also to find scholarship opportunities to help fund the studying too.
This attention to detail and support helps students to get a realistic understanding of their chances of admission to their preferred institution, and to make informed decisions about their education.
Due to their commitment to providing high-quality support to students throughout the study abroad process, they have been developing a global reputation for the highest quality service since being founded in 2009, and can help students like Lukasz to go from a hard rejection to being offered 3 out of 7 places and securing over $15,000 of scholarship funding for each year of his studies.
“We have support staff across a wide range of countries. They can assist with everything from visa applications to accommodation arrangements, providing support that is critically important for students who are new to a country and may find it challenging to adapt to a new culture and language.”
In addition to their support staff, Smapse also offers a range of services to help students with their transition to studying abroad.
They provide pre-departure orientation sessions, which help students to understand the culture, customs, and norms of the country they are going to as well as also offering language classes, which can help students to improve their language skills before they start their course.
This can be particularly important for students who are going to a country where the language is not their first language.
An established brand that specializes in helping students find the best place to study abroad. Smapse is an excellent choice for finding the right course, institution, and country for you.
