    Cognix, founded by Stanford alum, Nirmal Agarwal, is an end-to-end education counselling organisation that administers a world class advising program to guide students in making career choices, applying to universities worldwide, and preparing for success in careers and life. Mentors at Cognix believe in the potential of each child, and guide them from an early stage to discover and pursue their interests, assess their career options, and support them through their college application process.

    Our Philosophy

    We follow a one-to-one, personalized and compassionate approach to help students, and families, navigate the stressful college application process.


    We represent the students and do not accept any money, commissions, representation fee, etc., from colleges to refer students to them.

    Why Us

    We have been working with students for over 20 years, providing education, career guidance, and guiding them through the process of college admissions.
