Testimonials

Lead Software Engineer - Uptake
"International students, like the ones that Kenilworth Consulting helps place at U.S. universities, introduce new cultures and broaden the perspectives of their classmates, while contributing to the university financially by paying full-tuition so many of their U.S. classmates can receive scholarships. My international classmates were motivated and set the bar high for academic achievement and on-campus involvement. "

"John and Kenilworth helps students connect and succeed with schools in countries other than their home lands. Since I teach international students all of the time, I know too well how they often struggle with different cultures, languages, and expectations from what they are used to. As such, I can not think of a more important service to help the students succeed than what is offered by John and Kenilworth. I wish them the best of success."

"Having worked with international students for many years (in addition to having been one myself), I cannot emphasize enough the benefits of such international exchanges. Opening doors to international study, like Kenilworth Global Consulting does, permits all parties involved to grow and to learn about other cultures. International students contribute much to the lifeblood of the modern university (and society) with the goal of helping understand our complicated, multicultural, globalized world."

"It was my dream to pursue a Masters program in the UK in Entrepreneurship. My mentor at Kenilworth helped me understand the right course, the best University that I could apply to and also guided me on my application. I was guided at all stage to develop a strong application that would help me secure my admission. I am glad I approached Kenilworth for my study abroad application. I know I can count on them at any time even after my course to explore what more I can achieve in life. "

"I consulted a few counselors and finally my friend suggested Kenilworth to me. I spoke to the and i felt they were very different from others and helped me understand what i want to do and once i got my admit, then came the visa process. They were always there, right from filling the forms to preparing the visa file. I am really happy I choose them and would recommend Kenilworth to everyone!!"

"While most consultants only help till the admission process, Kenilworth Global Consulting guides us at every stage….They take care of Medical students by providing them housing, cafeteria/mess services, career guidance during the study and all formalities in Georgia. They made all arrangement for me to live there and study in a great University. I represent the student association and I welcome students to Georgia through Kenilworth and I can assure you will experience the difference. "

"I am yet to believe that I will be studying in Boston, USA. My mentor at Kenilworth helped me get admission in one of the best and most renowned universities. They connected me students who are currently studying there. I was guided in regards to housing by them. I just loved the way they provided me with a dedicated counselor. My visa interview was a cakewalk all thanks to the Kenilworth Team. I highly recommend everyone to experience their unmatchable services."

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the current immigration climate and policies affect enrollments and revenues?

On January 11, 2019, President Donald Trump announced that positive “changes are coming soon” for H-1B visa holders. This will increase the student flow and enrollments in American Universities and Colleges, thereby increasing revenues. Student Visas and H1B work permits/visas are very interconnected as international students look forward to working in the United States post graduation. This will help prevent brain drain and also make use of the best and talented minds that get trained and nurtured by some of America's finest universities. But from a risk management perspective, we have a portfolio that contains universities across the world. This will help us cater to international students that would want to study in other countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, UK, Russia, Georgia, and European Countries in case the American immigration policies change or affect enrollments.

What are our differentiation Factors ?

Some of the factors that give us the edge over our competitors are our geographic presence in North America and Asia, unique approach to high quality student counseling, edu-tech products, post admission support and internships.

What are your plans for Scalablity?

We have excellent contacts in Nepal, Bangladesh, Philippines and Sri Lanka. We plan to open a network of virtual offices and local representatives in these countries to target new markets to provide service offerings and increase revenues.

Risks & Disclosures

FINANCIAL RISKS: These are risks that may impact the institution’s financial well being. These comprise a variety of scenarios, including exchange rate fluctuations that may make an institution unaffordable for international students; the decision of a sponsoring nation to no longer participate with an institution, leaving students unable to pay tuition; or the inability to recruit international students.

MARKET RISK relates to environmental factors that go wrong and affect an institution’s ability to recruit and retain students from a particular market. These challenges may be caused by demographic shifts, political factors, or changing economic situations, for example. While these factors may be beyond anyone’s control, international enrollment professionals can better manage the risks by understanding the markets in which they operate.

REPUTATIONAL RISKS can affect the way an institution is viewed in the marketplace by prospective students and parents, current students, alumni, or the general public. These may result from using agents, staff, or alumni who may reflect poorly on the institution or misrepresent the institution’s programs or services.

PROGRAM MANAGEMENT RISKS relate to the ability of an institution to deliver the programs and academic courses that it would want in a particular marketplace. No institution is able to do everything, so it’s important to set priorities and consider the programs most likely to attract students.
