Why Should You Choose Us?


We know there is a mountain of information available on the internet. Therefore, we have no doubt that you have adequate access at your fingertips to navigate the basics of the process – and we encourage just that.

However, we also know there are certain key points in your journey where you will need advice or a mentor to validate your choices and be the soundboard for your decisions while providing you with the information and perspective you seek. With Virtual Counsellor, we respect your independence and want to guide you to make informed decisions for your career. 

ALIGNED TO YOUR INTEREST

Ensuring that you get custom, tailored mentorship is our #1 priority. We will partner you with a Mentor who is an ex-student from the field you specifically are keen on so your Mentor can advise you on your personal journey.

QUICK AND EASY ACCESS

Talking to your Mentor is as easy as connecting with a long-distance friend – From email to video conferencing, all you need is a phone or laptop to get connected to your Mentor! 

SELF-HELP AND SELF-TIMED

As a team, we encourage you to be as informed as possible and do your research, with our Mentors helping you wherever you feel stuck. Thus, you are the master of your own decisions with your Mentor serving as your professional advisor.

PERSONALIZED ASSISTANCE
