Ireland has a long history of welcoming international students going back more than a thousand years.

We continue that proud and historic tradition today and for the past 50 years Ireland has been a location of choice from students around the world, including North America, Europe, and the Gulf of Asia.

Courses and universities are tools to be part of the right paths to success. They are not your final destination. To reach your destination one needs to understand his ‘Career Path’ and ‘Goals in Life’. The right course is just one of the few milestones which have to be part of your journey. We help you find the right career paths. The right career for you is just waiting to be uncovered at STEPS.
With an in-house psychologist and standardized career mapping tools combined with years of experience, STEPS focuses on the following factors to figure out your dream course:
We have a detailed questionnaire to analyse an applicant’s profile.
This questionnaire is based on the lines of actual application essay questions and cognitive psychology
We then conduct many interviews to gauge an applicant’s:
We enquire about your financial background to realistically know an applicant’s
Essays can make or break your application. If your achievements and aspirations do not translate into your essay, all has been futile. You need to make your essay talk for you and make the reader sit up and take notice. STEPS has the most exhaustive essay writing process in place.
We don’t write your essays but make sure you end up writing your life’s best piece. Brainstorming on 2-3 ideas simultaneously and regular editing comments keep you on your toes. 6-7 drafts later, you become the proud owner of a true representation of yourself.
Your recommenders are busy! That is because you didn’t know whom to ask and ended up asking the most popular ones.
Choosing a recommender is like finding an accurate mirror. One who truly says “You are the fairest of them all!”
STEPS helps you single out the best recommenders and help you strengthen your relation with them. So that when the time comes, you can rest assure knowing your best foot forward has been presented.
From campus visits to VISA interviews to actual interviews to Video essays, we get you there. Interviews are about being sure of what you are speaking and what you want to convey. STEPS processes ingrain in you the clarity you were looking for.
