Educational Counsellor with Universalio
Universalio offers information and specialised support to high-school and university students about the admission process to elite international higher education institutions around the world. 

Who we are

UNIVERSALIO is a personalised educational counselling service developed by EDUCATIVA. We offer information and specialised support to high-school and university students about the admission process to elite international higher education institutions around the world. In our activity, we rely on our vast knowledge of foreign education systems, on the personal expertize of our counsellors who have studied abroad, on a large network of international university contacts, on links with Romanian international students and alumni of foreign universities and on our past experience of managing youth-targeted events and activities. We are a young and dynamic team in a continuously-improving work environment.
The Opportunity

As the volume and complexity of our activity increases every year, we are now looking for very enthusiastic and energetic young professionals to join our team in Bucharest as Study Abroad Counsellors. The main goal of an educational counsellor is to help young Romanian students to access the right academic program at a top university. The counsellor’s role will be to manage the individual application processes of the beneficiaries we work with (high-school and university students). If selected, you will work directly with the Senior Educational Counsellors of UNIVERSALIO and will occasionally interact with other teams within EDUCATIVA, including the EDMUNDO educational counsellors and the Marketing & PR Department. Prior to beginning your activity you will be thoroughly trained about the specifics of international educational systems, the variety of academic options, requirements and procedures, costs & financing. You will also receive constant support from the more experienced members of the team, as well as tips and tricks for successfully performing your activity
