Our exclusive services


We, at OSCL, are committed in providing quality service to our clients. We help our clients with the latest & updated information about the universities/colleges and visa processing.

Our exclusive services include:

  • Counseling
  • Admission & Correspondence
  • Visa Assistance and
  • Pre-departure Briefing

 

Counseling

We have a dedicated team of well-trained counselors from home and abroad managed by ex British Council staff. We assess every individual student very carefully based on their educational qualifications, present status, English proficiency and financial strengths. We also provide students with prospectuses/CD-ROMS/application forms of our partner universities/colleges to help their decision making process as necessary.

 

Admission & Correspondence

We keep regular contact with all the partner universities/colleges. They visit our offices frequently during the year. Once a student decides to apply for a course, he or she just needs to complete the enrolment form and give us all necessary papers. Thereafter, we take responsibilities for the admission procedure. We submit their applications to the universities/colleges and closely follow-up the status. Students obtain their Offer Letter/Letter of Acceptance from the university/college within a very short time after submitting their application.

 

Pre-departure Briefing

When students are confirmed about your/their student visa, our briefing session will give you/them as much information as possible about essential documents you/they will need for immigration and passport control procedures, airport security, how to get around, financial matters, budget planning, health care, religion, and cultural differences. All these will make you comfortable in the new environment around you.

After the excitement of the first few days or weeks, you may find yourself feeling homesick. The weather may be cold, damp and gloomy. The food may not be very appetizing. You may find people too busy to help. But the good news is that there are Bangladeshi communities almost everywhere and traditional foods are also available as there is demand for Indian spicy foods. However, OSCL always provides a clear idea about the life of studying abroad.

 

Marketing OSCL

OSCL has good links with education institutions, hence it has managed to get a good pool of students and over 15 years have sent approximately 10,000 students to the UK. As wished by the universities, we take international delegates to the schools to promote the institutions and hold one to one counseling session at our offices.

Digital media is used to promote our services, our Rajshahi Duranto website which is a cricket team that OSCL owns, has over 200,000 subscribers and we have over 4,000 subscribers.

OSCL actively participates in British Council fairs, Open day events and fairs held by private universities.

 

Visa Assistance

There is a misconception amongst some Bangladeshi students that a student visa can be obtained on a contract basis through agents. We would like to make it clear that it is impossible to obtain a visa this way.

In fact, students obtain a visa based on the individual strength of their individual visa application. Please be aware that there are some dishonest agents claiming that they can provide visas.

There are few agents, including OSCL who are approved partners of the British High Commission. It does not mean that they can give a guarantee for a student visa. What they can do is to make the process quicker and legal. It is the British High Commission which always reserves the right to give decisions for the visa. Our success lies in our quality service and thus the success rate of visa applications of our students is amongst the best in Bangladesh.

We always ensure that the students’ visa applications are prepared in the best possible way.

Our visa support officers are there to help the students along the visa journey towards realizing their dreams. The documentation officer scrutinizes the documents and then a ‘mock’ interview is taken by the Associate Director in English.

Only when a student is confident enough to face an interview is when we book an appointment time with the Visa Facilitation Service. In June 2014, the Immigration department at the British High Commission shifted to New Delhi, meaning there is a longer lead in time as it takes up to 55 days for an issuance of student visas for the UK universities.
