The US Embassy is all set to launch an app with a reputed visa consultant company to provide US study aspirants with all related and authentic information.

The United States Embassy in India has to collaborate with a consultant company to help students who aspire to study overseas, especially in the US. 400 Universities across the United States receive applications from Indian students. Currently, the US Universities are in a quest to add more diversity in the student demographics and their first priority is none other than the immensely diverse nation of India.

There had been a Rise of US universities reportedly inviting Indian students on board. Karl Adam who is the Deputy Cultural Affairs Officer in The US Embassy of India has Said the media that every year the number of students visiting the US for higher studies is increasing. There were around 200,000 Indian students last year who took admissions in various US Universities.

However, the app's collaboration with a visa consultant from India is a pilot project. The continuation of the application and its services will depend on the success of this pilot project. The United States Embassy has made it clear that the app does not file applications. It will only serve as a mode of delivering information and advice.

The app would help the student by giving ample advice on the basis of the student's choices. The student will be given the suitable institutions names on the basis of his/her choice of studies. There are around 4,700 higher study institutions in the US out of which, the students will pick as per their preferences. They will also be guided through the scholarship process.

Adam said that there are thousands of good higher education institutions in the US who would like to have Indian students but due to lack of information, 70% of Indian Students end up in 300-400 higher study institutes. The application will also work to solve this problem.
