Applying for uni through an agent? Risky? Watch
I'm an international applicant applying for Law in the UK.
So, it is clear that international students have to pay almost double the fees and it is really where profit for the university lies.
Now, coming to my question of whether applying to university through an agent would affect my chances of getting an offer?
I ask this because these "agencies" get a cut from my tuition fees and thats essentially what their revenue model is.
My question is about these private agencies (like SI-UK, Edwise International)
These agencies help students through the application process, visa process and all for free.
In turn, they get a cut from my tuition fee paid to the university.
So, as the university would have to pay the agency some percentage from my tuition fees, would that hold me at a disadvantage in terms of getting an offer?
