Riyadh College Consulting


Riyadh Admissions Counseling

In the busy heart of Saudi Arabia, where the modern world gracefully collides with rich history, Riyadh’s ambitious students aspire to paint their own futures. Home to prestigious institutions like Riyadh International School, British International School Riyadh, and others, young minds are primed to make their mark on the world.

Each year, top students here compete for a select few spots at elite US colleges.

However, navigating the maze of college applications can feel more challenging than finding the shortest route through Riyadh’s King Fahd Road at rush hour.
