Once the visa has been approved by the Immigration of the relevant country, we conduct a pre-departure briefing which immensely helps the students to settle abroad. Empire’s support does not just end there, we help student abroad too through the help of our professional networks and international branches. A student needs to be prepared for what abroad life is for international students. Our counsellors who are International Students know what to expect and how one can prepare before landing in the country.

HOW DO WE ASSIST

Once you have successfully attained a Visa, many students have apprehension about various subject matters like travel tickets, getting a job, settling, making friends, visiting places, itinerary planning, utensils, lodging and food and many more. So, we have a tete-a-tete with the parents and guardians to mitigate the apprehension.
For International airway ticket, Empire’s subsidiary company Empire Travel looks after the international ticketing system to help student book an affordable flight to Australia. This way a student should not worry about the ticketing arrangement, our pricing structure is highly competitive and one of the cheapest in the industry.
To secure a job, Empire International urge students to learn skills before they reach abroad, hence we conduct Barista training, cooking classes, accounting certifications and many more so that they have a competitive edge compared to other students. We also help students prepare a robust resume which is relevant to their qualification and with professional networks help them achieve a job abroad.
Similarly, for the itinerary, we have a pre-departure list and guidelines that we ask the student to adhere to.
