To grow and take up opportunities, stepping out of one’s comfort zone is a necessary, albeit a big task. And it may get overwhelming if one isn’t guided properly. For students especially, at stages like starting their higher education, they must take up the right decisions like choosing their courses, universities and even country, meticulously. Decisions made at this stage impacts their life ahead. So it becomes imperative that these decisions are based on facts and figures and not because someone in their near or far family said so.

The decision to study abroad impacts not just the students but for the family as well. Because it is not just about getting the right college, it is about getting the right country, documents, neighbourhood, financial support and more. Assisting students and parents in this task since 2008 is Aliff Overseas Consultants.

The Mumbai based company started its journey with a vision to provide affordable and highquality study abroad opportunities to Indian students. Over the years it has counselled over 23000 students to choose the right career. It has an impressive portfolio of over 190 colleges across 14+ countries offering a vast range of programs and specializations.

With time, students’ choice was changing, industry demanded futurist programs to be offered & new destinations were emerging with their unique offerings. The company ignored these changes at the initial stage, only to realize later that its needs to be agile, flexible and accommodative to what its customers demand (of students) & offer (of universities). Since then the team never stopped learning & unlearning, exploring new avenues, accepting fresh ideas to serve its customer better and even exceeding their expectations.

For a Motivated Generation

Mr. Shaikh believes that motivation is the key to sustain oneself in the industry and for
students to achieve their aim. He adds, “You can see in the eyes, listen in the voice, feel
through interaction whether or not a person is motivated enough to do what he or she is
doing. A motivated counsellor can motivate the student to make the right choice for his
successful career.”

Team Aliff also feels whilst it is important to take feedback but eventually it is the student
who is going to make a decision. To counsel students, they say, “Be responsible with your
choice. As your today’s choice will decide your tomorrow’s future. Do not follow the rat
race. What is good for your friend may not be ideal for you. Separate & identify what your
mind says and what your heart wants you to do. Look out for a mentor who can guide you.
You may have different mentor specialists in different areas of life. Above all, take care of
your health. Healthy mind, body & soul is a basic prerequisite to play the big game in life.”
