Can I Help You With Your Applications?
May 07, 2008

A free e-zine bringing you inspirational articles, great tips on studying abroad as well as jobs and scholarships alerts.

May 7th 2008, ISSUE #076.


Over the last few weeks, I have met great people in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Nairobi. Thanks to all for the lots of ideas shared. I am particularly grateful for the new projects submitted that we can work on together.

A recurring theme in most of the meetings has been difficulty getting admission to a University/College abroad for oneself or one’s siblings. And when one is already admitted to a good institution, it becomes an uphill task to get the much needed visa. Proper advice and good applications are indispensable when taking such important steps that affect your life and career.

If you find yourself denied a visa on the first application, chances are that you will be denied the second time. If that is the case with you, or you are a first time applicant who doesn’t want to take chances, get in touch (via phone) and we will work something out.

This week’s thought - Failure!

"Like success, failure is many things to many people. With Positive Mental Attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order and prepare to try again."

- W. Clement Stone.

As always, thanks for your time. Remember to spread the word about this website and benefit someone close to you!

Kind regards,

Joe Ngugi.
