More and more students are choosing to study abroad as a result of increased globalization and the demand for cultural competence in the workplace rises. While studying abroad is an exciting and valuable opportunity; prior to leaving home, students are faced with hundreds of questions about what steps they need to take, and who they can really trust to guide them through crucial aspects of their overseas journey.
Scholars Abroad Consultants (SAC) began in 2015 with a commitment to guiding students through their adventures abroad. Since its inception, SAC has worked toward a vision for studying abroad that values communication and accountability. Armed with a mission of putting students first, SAC dedicates itself to making foreign study and language learning easy and achievable for all.
What We Do:
SAC is a consulting agency that provides exceptional study abroad programs for students pursuing an undergraduate degree or higher. SAC researches, vets and streamlines the application process for overseas course study; offering a wide-variety of accredited institutions to choose from, and provide a solid curriculum, convenient and stable housing, and cultural engagement activities. With our trained advisers, students can focus solely on choosing the right country and school for them, and let us handle all the heavy lifting.
For students wishing to gain professional experience, and to increase their chances for employment in their desired field, SAC offers a thriving internship program for content writers, project clerk/administration and social media analytics/bloggers.
We strongly believe in our mission to foster overseas learning, and we know with our dedication, we have nowhere to go but up. As an educational consulting agency, SAC is expected to grow upward at an average annual rate of 4.8% in 2018-19. Currently, educational institutions are reaching out to consultants for advice on how to structure curriculum's and increase student interest, putting our services in demand, ultimately making SAC a sought-after and easily accessible company, and we are willing and eager to meet the demands.
