Imperial Merit Educational Advisory (IMEA) offers premium advisory services to students and parents looking for overseas studies options.
IMEA was founded in 2009 with the aim of helping Myanmar students by guiding them to study at the top universities in the world. Since then, we have been highly focused on providing the best services to our current and potential students. We have a proud track record of helping students to get into the top universities in the world, including Oxford, Imperial College London, London School of Economics (LSE) and University College London (UCL).
We are committed to helping Myanmar students achieve the best possible and world class education. Our approach is to give timely and informed advice, set new targets and help them see a world of possibilities.
Our aim is simple, we want the best possible options and outcomes for our students.
How we are different
Good education is life-changing. We believe that our Myanmar students have the aptitude and potential to achieve, with the right guidance and opportunity. Through our own experiences, we want to do what we can to help.
We provide care and direction at every stage of their higher education. Our role doesn't end after we send our students to our partner colleges and university. Our advice continues beyond college and university, on to internships and career options.
We focus on giving ethical, practical and useful advice as well as inspire students to achieve beyond their potential.
