What changes have we brought?
As education professionals, UTOI considers student benefit and student development as its number one priority. We firmly believe that only through personal and anecdotal experience are we able to provide logical suggestions that fit the student’s needs. All of our consultants possess an overseas, study abroad background. These experiences, whether from private high schools or colleges in Canada or from universities from all over North America, are what enables our consultants to not just relate to students but also make decisions that are logical and adequate for each student. Moreover, our essay consultants each have on average of 5+ years of experience in guiding students’ applications to universities in both Canada, US, and the UK. The combination of these diverse perspectives is what allows us as consultants to help each student maximize their chance of reaching their academic dreams.
- Help students achieve self-worth:
Currently, Canada’s rapidly expanding study abroad and immigration consulting industry suffers from a lack of professionalization and a lack of information transparency to clients. Consulting agencies in this environment are often able to place profit as a priority, and in turn, engages in unethical behaviours such as giving clients inaccurate advice, providing so-called “shortcuts”, or even downright faking application materials. This asymmetric information structure inherent in this industry is at an inflection point that is ripe for disruption. At UTOI, we are aiming to change these unethical behaviours by holding ourselves to high professional standards in providing our clients with personalized immigration or study abroad plans.
- Advancing positive industry standards and developments:
As Canada’s education consulting market heats up, more and more families, from around the world and equipped with greater financial means, are looking to invest in their children’s education by sending them to study abroad in Canada. At the same time, North American students have also developed greater interests in rapidly developing and prospering China. UTOI aims to be a pioneer in facilitating efficient channels and programs for student exchanges, including global volunteering programs, educational tourism, and joint academic credit recognition from participating academic institutions.
- Encouraging Sino-Canadian Educational and Cultural Exchange:
