Educational Consultant & International Study Expert

Sara Cavalieri

G'day! My name is Sara, and I'm the founder of College Apps Abroad. I'm a San Diego based educational consultant, specializing in helping students apply for college and grad school outside of the U.S. I have more than 10 years of experience working in international recruitment and admissions for some of the world's top institutions in the UK and Australia, including The University of Edinburgh and the University of New South Wales. I also studied and lived overseas myself in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Brazil for almost a decade. With a B.S. in journalism from Ohio University, a Master of Education from the University of New South Wales and a Certificate in Independent Educational Consulting from UC Irvine, I've also helped hundreds of students across North and South America apply for some of the world's top institutions. As you can see, I’m passionate about international education, and I look forward to helping you on your journey, too!
