Well-known agencies may not care about you that much because they have so many clients at the same time. Small agencies may charge you less, but it could be risky.

Large intermediaries charge very high fees, basically several times that of small intermediaries. Because big intermediaries charge more because of brands. In addition, large intermediaries have to help many students apply for postgraduate studies, and in most cases, they cannot help you well. Although small intermediaries charge less, they are not necessarily reliable. I recommend finding some intermediaries that my friends have worked with and visiting its headquarters.

Large study abroad agency could be more reliable and you can find more information. However, you may not know who will in charge of your application essay and whether he/she is responsible. For small study abroad agency, it may be less reliable, but you can know more information about who is in charge of your application essay.
大型留学代理机构可能更可靠，您可以找到更多信息。 但是，您可能不知道谁负责您的申请论文以及他/她是否负责。 对于小型留学中介，它的可靠性可能较差，但是您可以了解有关谁负责您的申请论文的更多信息。

I think large intermediaries often have a long history and strong background and resources. High fees often accompany such resources.
Small intermediaries may lower their prices, but they may not provide the resources that large intermediaries can provide.
Here I would like to recommend Palm, a study abroad agency that has just started but has a complete system and resources.我认为大中介往往拥有较长的历史和雄厚的背景和资源，这样的资源往往伴随着高昂的收费。

The choice of large and small intermediary mainly refers to their own situation. The big intermediary has higher charges and more perfect services. If their own preparation is perfect and they have a full understanding of foreign countries, they can actually choose more intermediaries. But if their own understanding and preparation are not enough, then a big intermediary will be a better choice.

To choose an institution that focuses on studying in the United States, in addition to advertising, word-of-mouth is very important. It is necessary to be able to devote everything to each student so that the students who sign their contracts can be admitted to their favorite American universities. Only in this way can a win-win and virtuous cycle of development be realized. When the intermediary makes plans for you, is it the assessment and planning based on your own situation? Each student’s situation is different and cannot be generalized. A good intermediary will make a choice of guarantee and sprint according to the student’s own situation, so that students can get the best within their own abilities after applying. Offer from your school.

The study abroad agency is very important for students who need to study abroad, because the study abroad agency needs to help students plan their applications and write documents.
Students may often hesitate to choose the intermediary, some students will choose a relatively large intermediary, because the large intermediary is reassuring and more secure. However, some students will choose small intermediaries because they will provide more specific services. I personally recommend small intermediary, the price is appropriate, the service is more specific and more personalized.

When choosing an intermediary, I do not think it is necessary to strictly define and distinguish between a large intermediary and a small intermediary. When choosing an intermediary, the most important thing is to choose an intermediary with a higher quality of service within a price range that you can accept, that is, to choose an intermediary with higher cost-effectiveness. Here, I recommend a study abroad institution that specializes in Australia. IDP is an institution that has just transformed to do study abroad. They used to do IELTS training. For this reason, they do not charge very high. In addition, they have a certain degree of cooperation with the Australian government, so if you want to study in Australia, their suggestions are of great reference.

In my opinion, before choosing an agency, you can consider the following things:
1. Will they help me improve myself? I think the agency’s job is not only to help you deal with all kinds of trivial work in the process of application or assist you to write your personal statement when you formally deliver the application to the graduate school. They also need to plan your preparation work and help you constantly improve your experience, background, and some skills.
2. How about the performance cost ratio? For me, I haven’t achieved financial independence yet, so I need to take into account my parents’ advice and my family’s financial situation.
3. The application results of others is for reference only, and the agency also can not guarantee a 100% success. We should realize the survivorship bias, which means that usually only successful cases are displayed. Hence, we should always keep working hard.

From my point of view, first, we must understand word-of-mouth, whether it is through acquaintance recommendation or online evaluation, we must carefully screen the suggestions of “coming people”. If you have the opportunity, it is best to communicate with the intermediary in person and go to the site for inspection. Second, you can compare the case given by the institution, from similar backgrounds, such as school, GPA, language scores, some other internships, competition experience, as well as the time spent, preparations and results, and evaluate whether it is in line with your own intentions. You need to match, judge the level of the organization from the success rate. The most important point is that you must see the company information, service content, and cost descriptions. After all, it is a legal basis. Here is the link of the suggestion https://www.zhihu.com/question/22825190?nr=1 第一，一定是要了解口碑，不管是通过熟人推荐还是网络评价，都要仔细地筛选下“过来人”的建议。如果有机会的话，最好亲自跟中介方进行沟通并去实地考察下。第二，可以对照一下机构给的案例，从相似背景，比如说学校、GPA、语言成绩，其他的一些实习、竞赛经历，还有所花费的时间、准备和结果，评估下是否与自己的意向相符，从成功率来判断机构的水平。最重要的一点，一定更要看清公司信息、服务内容和费用说明，毕竟是有法律依据的凭证。接下来是一些建议的链接https://www.zhihu.com/question/22825190?nr=1

Be sure to choose a reputable agency. Whether or not your mates have been or are being served, be sure to personally understand the reliability of the agency.
In addition, it is best to meet with the organization you are signing with offline first so that you can have a more intuitive sense of their capabilities. Past successes can be looked at, but should not be taken as a foregone conclusion.
here is the link for my agency, Xintong. Not a bad choice. https://www.igo.cn/

I prefer to choose agency studio rather than large agency Companies because large agency may not treat students very seriously. Sometimes, they even let experienced teachers help with difficult programes. In that case, I would like choose agency studio with fewer client amount. The link attached also introduces how to choose an agency.

First, look at qualifications.Before choosing to study abroad intermediary, see whether it has the qualification of developing self-funded study abroad intermediary business issued by the Ministry of Education and the business license issued by the Bureau of Industry and Commerce.
Secondly, review the contract.Company size, is it a state-owned or private enterprise?Is it directly under the Ministry of Education or a subordinate agency of other state departments?
Word of mouth.Before choosing the intermediary, it is suggested to search the name of this organization on the network, to see whether it is complained of or produces disputes in the forum, community, complaint website.
Choose consultant.Even for an overseas study agency with good credit and reputation, the level of overseas study consultants is uneven, so we should pay attention to the level and service attitude of overseas study consultants.

1. Large-scale overseas study institutions have more standardized operation and management procedures and a more detailed division of labor. They receive consultants in the early stage, and serve clerical or online application teachers in the later stage, and have more diversified product and service choices. However, the problem with large institutions is that the degree of personalization or customer experience may be less because of the assembly line operation.
2. Many of the founders of small overseas study agencies are from large overseas study agencies. They have many years of practical experience and pay more attention to customer experience and personalized service because they can only win customers by word of mouth.

In my opinion, both large and small intermediaries have their own advantages and disadvantages. Large intermediaries have a good reputation. They generally have a pipeline-like process to help you complete the application. But it is this assembly line that makes your own resume or introduction missing a piece of personality. This is one of their drawbacks. For small intermediaries, their personnel strength may not be so average. In other words, some people are very strong, and they can write you a good application. However, there are also applications written by people with weaker skills that are not as good as those written by yourself. Therefore, the most important thing is to find the person you feel is most suitable for you to help you, rather than choosing a large or small intermediary.

Personally, I prefer small agencies because they have fewer students and they can focus on these students. As for large agencies, they have a lot of students and they may not have so many energy and time to pay attention to all students.

Because small agencies do not make promotion of themselves, they may provide better services to have good reputation to attract more students. So I choosed a small agency.
