I went to Asia Pacific aspiring to go for my master's degree in Australia. At that time I had no idea about the process of applying to an international University and for the student visa. Ranjni vohra ma'am helped me throughout the process and guided me in the right direction about the documents and the process. I got my visa and the acceptance letter without any hassle and quiet quickly. If anybody wants go go abroad and need guidance I would surely recommend Asia Pacific as they help you and guide you throughout your journey.
