Frankly Speaking, I spoke to all the top class Education consultancies in Bangladesh and also many education agents personally too. But from all the agencies, I was told that it is not possible to do Masters in Australia with my profile. I distinctly remember being told by all other Educational agencies that I would not be accepted into any university in Australia. At that time, I was very really upset but did not give up. After that, I contacted Study in Pty Ltd at their Bangladesh office. Then, at the very first day KiratPal Singh Education counselor of Study in Pty Ltd. told me that don't worry, there is no problem with your profile. He gave me hope. Then after 9 days of application, I received the offer letter. It's been a hectic journey from the very first day I decided to pursue a higher degree until the day I got a visa. I want to show my gratitude to Md. Neamat Ullah and Fabila Alam for their amazing cooperation. I reached out to them in the month of April for consultation. From that very first day, KiratPal Singh guided me throughout the process. You guys are the best. I would like to thank Study in Pty Ltd. and the entire team for helping me gets my Australian student visa within 7 days. All the paperwork was first and accurate. They were always there for me through the entire process and were knowledgeable about everything. If I had any queries, they always used to reply promptly, no matter how many times I approached. Thanks again for helping me achieve my dreams and I strongly recommended Study In Pty Ltd. To those who are planning to study abroad.
