Parisa Khodabakhshi (Iran)  February 2018

One of my relatives that had used IEC, introduced me to them. I wanted to do Masters in Civil Engineering in Canada or UK. As my IELTS were not good enough, I had to do foundation course before entering the University.  IEC managed to find me a short foundation course that saved me more than £8000 compared to a long course. They helped me with the Visa application form.  They helped me to settle down in UK and even they helped me with some of my subjects that I was struggling. I do recommend them to anybody that likes to study abroad.
