For medical aspirants MBBS Abroad is a demanding career but this is a process in which you will need a mediator. That mediator is known as an MBBS abroad Agent or MBBS abroad Consultant who can guide you to find the best place to pursue your dream career. But it is crucially important to understand the thin difference between the both.
Here in this post, we will discuss the working methods of an agent or a consultant so that you will find the best one for you.
Who are Agents?
- An agent is responsible for guiding a candidate and for simplifying the application & admission process in foreign universities.
- An agent helps the students in deciding the university and the country for their higher medical studies.
- Generally, an agent does not charge the students because they get paid by the university to which students are taking admission.
- An agent can work with multiple universities or medical colleges.
- An agent may help the students in filling out the application form, arranging the documents and visa process after receiving the admission letter.
Who are consultants?
The work areas of a consultant are slightly broader than an MBBS abroad agent. An MBBS abroad consultant provides his/her services that include advising and guiding the students who wish to pursue an MBBS course from abroad.
The purpose of a consultant is similar to an agent i.e to simplify the application process in any medical university abroad.
Consultants do not get paid by the university and they charge the students for providing their services.
Consultants analyze the weaknesses and the strengths of the candidates, understand all the requirements then provide unbiased suggestions.
Consultants guide the students while filling out the application form, help the students in getting education loans, Obtaining visas and many more.
MBBS abroad agent Vs MBBS abroad consultant
Simplifying the application process for MBBS abroad aspirants is the key role of both agent and consultant. Though there are slight differences in their roles that are mentioned below:
|Provide college and country details||Analyze weak and strong areas before any advice|
|Represent specific colleges, hence may provide a biased review about that college.||Don’t represent any specific college, the ultimate goal is to help the students to find out the best college under his/her budget.|
|Don’t charge the candidate, get paid by the college which they are representing.||Take service charges from the candidate|
|Agent may focus only on your admission||Consultant focuses on providing the best career advice to the candidate.|
|May be involved in documentation, visa processing etc.||Provide counselling, help in the application, obtaining admission letter and visa also.|
|May not be in touch after the admission||Consultant guide you even after getting admission to your desired university|
|Key objective of an agent is to fill the seats in the college that he is representing||Key objective of a consultant is to satisfy the candidate by providing the possible solution|
