Our UK Students

  • It's been wonderful working with Niharika Ma'am and the Ednet Team. The organized and efficient way in which the team functioned amazed me. I knew I was in good hands and felt safe. The constant motivation that was provided, enabled me to work to the best of my ability.
    Divyansh Gupta
    UCL
  • "Ednet has been instrumental in getting me into my dream schools. Through Niharika Ma’ams guidance and experience, I was able to present myself in a completely new light – highlighting my strengths and ideas in the best possible manner. Everyone at EDNET is extremely approachable, especially Reena Ma’am. Through OD ma’ams guidance, I was able to improve my essays and create a better image.
    Paridhi Murarka
    London Business School (LBS); Warwick Business School, Babson College with $10,000 merit scholarship
  • The A to Z counseling and support is what was offered. Will be back here for my MBA. Ednet is the one-stop solution and cure to your student and future propectus worries.
    Arnav Srivastava
    Warwick, Southhampton, Aston, Edinburgh, Lancaster
  • When I was 14 years old, I laid my eyes on LSE that is where I wanted to pursue Msc. in Economics. And today because of Ednet services and assistance, I have realized my childhood dream. The application procedure could be tedious and tough, but not when you have Niharika Ma`am and the Ednet team
    Mokshada Jain
    London School of Economics, University College London and Warwick University
  • Putting together an application to business school is a daunting task. Niharika was instrumental in guiding me through the entire process and helping me prioritize. What I had been lacking was a sound second opinion on my essays. In addition to discussing my essay thoughts at length, Niharika would go through them with sincerity and provide a constructive critique. I greatly appreciate Niharika’s time, commitment, and accessibility.
    Karanraj Chaudri
    Oxford University, UK
  • I was very confused in the beginning but after coming to Ednet and meeting Niharika Ma`am, I was able to make the right choice. The office staff too was extremely cooperative and helpful. It has been a pleasurable experience. I had a lot of queries and doubts which were cleared here. I took a few classes for TOEFL and SAT from Nishant Sir and he was exceptionally good. My only regret is that I should have taken classes from him earlier!
    Vaanee Goel
    University of Warwick, Kings College London, University of Bath, City University London and University of Edinburgh
  • "Ednet's team support in the preparation of my application was nothing less than Brilliant. I do not think it would have been possible to put my profile together the way Niharika Ma'am did for me. She made the entire application process painless and I sailed through it like a breeze."
    Rohit Dewan
    (Msc. Accounting & Finance; London School of Economics (LSE))
