About Course

Welcome to the  Certified International Student Advisor -CISA programme

An Education Agent Training Course, which has been designed to support excellence and professional standards in international education.

The CISA is a practical, professional training course for agency-based student counsellors. It provides student counsellors with:

  • An understanding of the overall international education market and the main destination countries for international students
  • The skills and research parameters to analyse destination countries and their education products and processes
  • The functional dynamics of dealing with students, education institutions, and governments.

The course covers three areas:

  • The Context of International Education: Destination countries, education systems, legal requirements, visas application and documentation.
  • The People in International Education: Students, education institutions’ personnel, and immigration authorities.
  • Promoting International Education: Working effectively, marketing, and ethics.

There are about sixteen countries discussed in this course. However, student counsellors running this course will not be tested on the specific destination countries because we understand that student counsellors will have different country focuses, and may not want to study all countries included in this course.
