About GEPSI (Global Education & Placement Services Inc.)
The Global Education & Placement Services Inc. or GEPSI says that it was created in 1994, and operates out of Ahmedabad, India. They claim to have tailor made solutions for people who are interested in moving to Canada, or for employers who want to hire foreign workers. The company also says that they are a Canadian government approved Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) member.
With 25 years of experience GEPSI claims to have extensive experience in student visa in particular, and are willing to help students gain student visas in countries like:
- Australia; and
- New Zealand
It does help that Mr. Chirag Nanavat seems to be a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). Although the website does not seem to mention any other immigration agencies, if you wish to immigration to, for example the UK.
Website and Services
GEPSI’s layout for its webpage is not especially professional. The design is very busy, with lots of images and information crammed into every available space on the webpage. This does not make it easy for the reader to take in information, or navigate GEPSI’s website.
A feature that is missing is that there are no real T&Cs, Refund or Privacy Policies on the website. The only thing GEPSI does have is a disclaimer, stating that they are only offering advice, not guarantees about anyone receiving a visa.
The website does seem to have a lot of content about Canada in particular, things like the climate, economy etc. But the company does not go into further detail about the application process, or about the services it offers. This does make the site seem less professional as a result.
GEPSI claim to offer services for:
- Skilled workers;
- Quebec selected skilled workers;
- Canadian Experience Class;
- Investors and entrepreneurs;
- Provincial Nominees; and
- Study visas
They do not go into detail about the application process. In some cases, they just refer the user to the Canadian government website for more information.
Social Media and Reviews
The website does not have links to its social media website on Facebook. With only 907 followers, GEPSI doesn’t have the strongest social media presence. It is surprising that the Facebook page says the company was established in 2007, while their actual website says it was created in 1994.
There is recent activity on the Facebook page at least, with regular posts. Unfortunately, these posts seem to redirect the user back to the original website, rather than have recent immigration information. There are some posts that relate to Canadian immigration news, but there are not enough to fully help the user about changes in immigration policies etc.
Despite the posts, their online reviews in Facebook appear to be mostly positive about the GEPSI’s services.
It does helps that the person who claims to be the director, Mr. Chirag Nanavat is qualified as a RCIC, although it is strange that the company offers the option to study in so many countries, besides Canada.
There do seem to be quite a few positive reviews for GEPSI, on both their website and their Facebook homepage. It is a pity that the company does not do as many updates on Canadian immigration news.
