Students are the most important part of any society; it would fair to say that they are the building blocks of a society. It is also acknowledged that student life is often the most exciting part of one’s life. Life on campus is full of so many happenings and discoveries : lectures, exams, social gatherings, class presentations, performance pressure, competition, field trips, relationships and much more.
Everyone has the right to extract the most out of student life and to make it pleasantly memorable. This can be done by achieving and maintaining physical and mental health and creating a fine balance in life.
Lawand Education Study Abroad counsellors play a very important role in guiding aspiring students to their aims and dreams.
This service helps students to overcome their personal, academic and social problems and to flourish in life.
In 1995, Lawand Tourism pioneered inbound tourism from the Arabian Gulf Countries to Australia and it has retained market dominance through continuous evolvement. With offices on the ground in both the markets and the destinations,
Lawand Tourism catered to the needs of Middle Eastern tourists, throughout their holidays in Australia, for many years. The Lawand branding is entrenched within the trade and the public in the markets and within the industry in Australia. In 2001, Lawand Tourism augmented its core services by offering English Language courses. This sowed the seeds for the creation of Lawand Education.

Tips to consider
- Don’t underestimate costs & capital. Visualise it as the runway with a plane taking off : the runway is the liquid capital until the plane is self-sustaining and gets off the ground
- Double the estimate of the liquid capital required – don’t underestimate the funding you will need (runway example)
- Sales and marketing is the lifeblood of any business. In addition to our sales and marketing efforts, you can design and undertake local level sales and marketing activities, within the agreed territories, but it has to be communicated and approved by LE before its implementation

- Honestly evaluate that this opportunity matches your skills, experience, goals, and personality
- Make sure you have a passion for business – don’t just follow your passion (eg golfer) to buy a franchise, but expect to work hard – don’t think buying a franchise is going to make it easy
- Think twice if you lack sales & marketing experience, and create a strategy to fill the gap
- Do you really like running your own business ?
- Do you possess the drive and desire to be successful ?
- Do you have a passion for international education ?
