IELTS - International English Language Testing System

I'm an MSc finance and investment banking student at the University of Hertfordshire, United kingdom. In the space of less than three weeks of providing all required documents (transcript, BSc certificate etc), Avail was able to secure me conditional admissions at three different universities in the UK. After putting some factors into consideration, I was able to settle for the University of Hertfordshire.

Overall, AICL was a tremendous contributor to the success of my application and obtaining a student visa. In AICL, work is successfully completed either through individual effort or through team work. The Staff work with the highest level of honesty and integrity. The quality of the work in AICL consistently exceeds expectations. I highly recommend AICL.
