Who we are not
- We are not an education agency
- We are not a course-search or a course comparison website
- We are not a careers counselling website
- We are not education consultants or a university admissions consultancy
Our education experts are independently operating individuals
Our education experts are individuals who operate independently and who need to undergo a rigorous vetting process to ensure they meet mandatory requirements. This is to ensure Sofiri experts possess high-level industry knowledge and skills to guide prospective international students through course selection, application, offer acceptance and visa application.
What is our secret ingredient
Our service is part of the business phenomenon that is transforming industries and challenging traditional business ideas across the globe.
- An in-language platform that uses geo-location to provide review based education expert connections.
- A fully transparent system with 360-degree visibility for education providers.
- An automated part of the journey that will reduce counselling time to experts.
