Our Happy Clients

I am truly honoured to be one of the recipients of the OAL scholarship this year. Thanks to generous educational grants like yours, my dream of becoming a Speech Language Pathologist is moving forward. This award gives me an opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for becoming a SLP, a position in which I hope to be able to give back to my community while also working towards a role of leadership and responsibility.

Just as this grant has been important, I am also very grateful for the help and guidance that OAL and Serene have given me. OAL has been there for me every step of the way, from getting in touch with the representatives at the University of Sydney to guiding me in resolving the problems I had encountered in application, many of which could not have been solved without the help from OAL. This assistance has been invaluable in helping me settle down in Sydney and has also allowed me to focus more on my education.

Your generosity, both financially and with your advice and assistance, has inspired me to help others around me. In future, I hope that I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have empowered me.

Once again, thank you very much, OAL and Serene, for the vote of confidence, this scholarship and your indispensable help thus far.

Thank you OAL, special thanks to Serene, for paving the way for me to a wonderful and enriching overseas education experience, for helping me at every step of the way, from helping me with university course application and visa application to arranging a meeting with Victoria McEniery, Regional Marketing (South-East Asia) Manager of Otago University so that I am better prepared to arrive in Dunedin, New Zealand. With OAL's support I am able to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Dental Surgery through the Health Sciences First Year pathway at Otago. Indeed, OAL is a bridge between student and university, bringing myself and my family, a step closer to our dreams.

Terima Kasih OAL, terutama sekali Serene, atas segala bantuan yang telah diberikan. Beliau telah membantu saya mempersiapkan aplikasi Universiti, aplikasi permohonan VISA New Zealand dan telah mengaturkan temu janji bersama Victoria McEniery, Pengurus Pemasaran Serantau bagi Asia Tenggara dari Universiti Otago supaya saya dapat mempersiapkan diri dengan lebih baik sebelum ke sana. Dengan sokongan OAL, saya dapat melanjutkan pelajaran di luar negara dalam jurusan doktor pergigian di Otago Universiti. Sememangnya, OAL adalah perantaraan bagi pelajar dan univerisiti, dan bagi kami, ia telah merapatkan kami sekeluarga dengan impian dan cita-cita yang ada.

I am extremely thankful to staff of OAL for their guidance and assistance with my applications to one of the most renowned colleges for sciences in the United Kingdom. OAL provides excellent and realistic recommendations that accommodate to each student’s needs. They have been extremely patient and exceptionally resourceful in providing stress-free and extremely organized applications to various universities. They are also very efficient in helping new prospective students connect with other students of their respective universities to provide a smooth transition to new environments. I am grateful for OAL’s help in facilitating my applications for undergraduate and postgraduate schools, and I will highly recommend OAL to any prospective students.

"Whenever we speak to friends with children studying overseas, the name 'OAL' inevitably comes up. Of course we know of other education counselling companies, but since the recommendation was strong and we had not heard of any negative feedback, it was a no brainer when the time comes for us to consider overseas education for our two sons, that our first task was to contact 'OAL'.

From our first telephone call to request for a lunch hour appointment, to the day our son started his first day at Trinity College in Melbourne, Counsellor at OAL meticulously and patiently answered all our questions and walked us through the processes. Counsellor recommended options for our considerations, and even counselled our son on his ideals.

Always accommodating and seeing to our needs and conveniences, enrolling our sons through OAL were a breeze. OAL had even assisted us on a situation, going beyond their boundaries. They do go the extra mile in their service.

Well done, OAL! Keep up the good work."

"I am very grateful to the people at Overseas Academic Link Pte Ltd (OAL) for being our link to Trinity College. From the word go, OAL has been ceaselessly assisting us in our applications to Trinity College, visas, medical check-ups and all background work. Upon graduation from Trinity College, my daughter was offered a place in the University of Melbourne. OAL was there with the same dedication and commitment with the second round of applications. Thank you OAL for your excellent and very personalized service!"

"I was delighted to be conferred the prestigious D&AD Student Award in less than a year's stay in London. It wouldn't have been possible without OAL's help in ensuring my smooth transition into a new culture and environment. OAL greatly assisted me with my application to one of the best and most reputable design colleges in the world. The resourceful and patient educational advisors provided me with the mental preparation I needed with their pre-departure counseling and orientation. Their assistance in arranging networking sessions with other students has helped me to forge close friendships."

"OAL is a one-stop application centre that provided me a stress-free and enjoyable experience. From selecting the right university that suits my needs, booking of flights and arranging accommodation, setting up of bank accounts, right down to my transfer from the airport. OAL has certainly surpassed my expectations!"

Chiang Ming Cherng
The University of Melbourne

"OAL is truly a one – stop resource centre. Serene, the Director and the OAL people were a wonderful source of support to me. In 1999, my initial year in Australia, I was late by two weeks for my first semester. The application process delayed my departure and I was ready to give up and reapply in the next semester. But Serene and her staff reassured me. Using their influence and reputation OAL helped to clear my application. I am always grateful to OAL for their efficiency and concern. I have kept in frequent contact with them and recommended OAL to many friends. They have also found OAL to be truly a one – stop resource centre."

"The transition to a new environment overseas can be a difficult one. At OAL, cousellors are committed to ensuring that your progression to a tertiary institution is a smooth one. They have well-established working relations with many Universities and are extremely knowledgeable about the requirements for each course at the various institutions. This allows them to provide an efficient and reliable service to students. From visas to accommodation, OAL offers an extremely personalized service that suits your needs. Counsellor managed all the paperwork (visa application, blood tests, etc.) for getting into the MBBS program while I was serving full-time National Service, giving me peace of mind. Regular and prompt correspondence is maintained, even after enrolment, to address any concerns or issues that may hinder the assimilation of students into the new environment. Through their commitment to deliver high standards of service, I am very confident that the staff at OAL will tailor their efforts to cater to your unique needs."

"“I can no other answer make, but thanks and thanks.” {William Shakespeare} Applications to universities inevitably require a lot of paperwork, ranging from academic transcripts to referee reports to filling up application forms, and these are often messy and discouraging. With OAL, my applications end up being more well-organised, smoother and less traumatising, and I feel confident that things will work out well. I’ve also had lots of good recommendations on where to go and what to do in order to gain entry into a good course. I’ve learnt a lot about various universities via OAL too. I’d like to thank OAL for helping me so much with my applications, from my undergraduate applications, to Honours applications, and now – for my postgraduate applications. Thanks so much, for facilitating my applications for various courses, and for providing me with lots of information on everything to do with university studies. Applying for overseas studies via OAL is definitely excellent and productive, and I would recommend OAL to prospective students, both undergraduate and graduate alike. "

“ OAL have assisted me and my three sons in their applications to study in Australia for both their Foundation studies and Undergraduate programs. Not only do I always use their services (from 2001 till to date), I have also recommended several friends and colleagues to them. They are truly very professional, friendly, efficient and caring. OAL do not just assist in the initial applications but willingly continue to render assistance and advice thereafter in both curriculum and accommodation matters. I would not hesitate to continue to recommend OAL .”

"OAL is a resourceful and supportive agency. Serene, the Director has never failed to come through with assistance when it comes to advice for tertiary education and which universities offer the best courses in your field of interest. I am and always will be grateful to her and her team for their efficiency and attention to detail. I have always and will continue to recommend OAL to my friends seeking to venture overseas for educational opportunities. Serene and her team do not disappoint. "

"Thank you for helping me with my applications. Your advices were professional and I'm really enjoying Newcastle University now! Thank you for the push to go back to school, else I would still be the lost sheep back home.

It was a real pleasure working with you! If anyone asks for a recommendation of agent in the near future, I would definitely be recommending you!"

Eunice GOH

"My wife and I have been fortunate to have consulted friends who recommended OAL for our son who wanted to study in Melbourne Australia. Our mates told us “You must speak with SERENE of OAL. She is the best!”. We are glad to tell all of you that the entire process was made easy and smooth.

So if your child has decided to study in Australia, I would fully recommend you make a bee line and see Serene of OAL."
