大家應該都已經了解留學代辦的基本流程了, 那麼下一個大家關心的問題就是, 這些服務到底該付多少錢呢?
以下由崴創的經驗出發, 整理出各項服務費用的大致區間, 實際每家公司可能在細項上有所不同, 若有疑問還是親自上門問清楚比較好
•初步諮詢: 免費, 這個階段大部分的留學代辦都是不會收費
•確認申請學校排名: 根據申請學校的排名前後, 代辦公司的收費會增加, 越靠前越高 ; 前10名: 6000-8000/間, 前10-50名: 5000-6000/間, 50名以後: 3000-5000/間
•申請學校間數: 間數越多收費越高, 但也會受申請學校的排名影響 ; 5-8間: 4-6萬, 8間以上6-8萬
•英文履歷/讀書計畫/推薦信撰寫/修改: 2000-4000/份, 根據每份字數,長度有所不同
•作品集翻譯: 另行報價, 每家留學代辦都有不同方式處理
•申請學校手續費: 自行付費, 通常$70-200不等, 這部分需申請者自行承擔
•文件快遞費用: 500-800/件, 實際依照快遞公司報價決定
•相關簽證辦理: $5000-7000, 如果請代辦幫忙申請, 也需要一定手續費
那麼, 具體情況是如何呢? 我們以假設情況來實際驗算看看
小明想要去美國讀研究所, 跟代辦諮詢過後, 計畫申請8間排名在30-50名的學校, 此外他還需要代辦協助撰寫履歷, 讀書計畫和推薦信, 翻譯作品集以及申請簽證, 這樣一共該付多少錢呢?
How are study abroad agency fees calculated?
Most people should be familiar with the basic process of using a study abroad agency, but the next important question is how much do these services cost?
Based on Wei Creation's experience, we have compiled a rough range of fees for various services. Each company may have differences in detail, so it is best to clarify any questions in person.
• Initial consultation: free, as most study abroad agencies do not charge at this stage.
• Confirmation of school ranking: The agency's fees will increase based on the ranking of the applied school, with higher fees for higher rankings. Top 10: 6,000-8,000 per school, top 10-50: 5,000-6,000 per school, after 50: 3,000-5,000 per school.
• Number of schools applied to: The more schools applied to, the higher the fee, but this is also affected by the ranking of the applied schools. 5-8 schools: 40,000-60,000, over 8 schools: 60,000-80,000.
• English resume/study plan/recommendation letter writing/modification: 2,000-4,000 per document, depending on the length.
• Portfolio translation: Priced separately, as each study abroad agency has a different way of handling this.
• Application fees: paid by the applicant, usually ranging from $70 to $200. This part needs to be borne by the applicant.
• Document delivery fees: 500-800 per item, actually determined by the delivery company's quotation.
• Related visa processing: $5,000-7,000. If you ask the agency to help with the application, a certain fee is also required.
So, what is the specific situation? Let's use a hypothetical example to calculate the actual cost.
John wants to study in the US for a master's degree. After consulting with the agency, he plans to apply to 8 schools ranked 30-50. In addition, he needs the agency's help to write his resume, study plan, and recommendation letter, translate his portfolio, and apply for a visa. How much should he pay in total?
8 schools ranked 30-50: $5,500 x 8 = $44,000
Resume writing: $3,000
Study plan writing: $3,000
Recommendation letter writing: $3,000
US visa processing: $6,000
Total cost is approximately $59,000 (portfolio pricing is separate).
Now you understand, right?
If you want to study abroad in the UK or the US, but are overwhelmed by the preparation required, consider finding a trusted study abroad agency!
