What is Yocket Premium?

At its core, Yocket Premium is a study abroad counselling service which comes with in-built live GRE coaching too.

However, what sets us apart is:

Tech Focus

We have built robust front-end and back-end systems, backed by AI to make our students’ and counsellors’ journeys simpler.


We began as a study abroad community. Over 60 million students have explored it, with 1.5 million actively participating as well.

Of course, these alone aren’t enough to meet every student’s needs. That’s why we have 100+ experienced counselors, test-prep coaches, document editors, financial advisors, and visa experts. They’ve helped 10,000+ students get into top universities, securing scholarships worth USD 15 million (120 crore INR).

Are You Missing the Top University Edge?

Discover why and how to aim higher

Indians have a long tradition of studying abroad, from Mahatma Gandhi to nearly a million in 2022. Yet, 98% end up in far lower-ranked universities than their calibre. Why?

  1. Many of us don’t understand the importance of graduating from a top university, AND
  2. Most of us think it’s NOT possible to get into one.

Let us debunk both these for you –

Studying abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, yet many settle for any university suggested by their friends, family, or any tom-dick-and-harry consultant.

Here’s why you should strive for the best possible university for your profile:

1. Why is it important to graduate from a top ranked university?

“If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing it well”

Yes, we know what you’re thinking. If it’s so obvious then why did only 2% of students choose top universities? While many don’t see the importance; those who do often don’t know how to achieve it.

But we know.

Acceptance rates of Indian colleges:

2. Can you really make it to a top university?

Acceptance rates abroad:

Clearly, it’s far easier to get into a top university abroad than at home, especially with Yocket (see our acceptance rates below).

Remember the 1 in 60 rule – in aviation, a 1-degree error leads to being off course by a mile after 60 miles. Similarly, one small mistake in selecting the right university or course can significantly impact your career path.

But, how do we do it?

Now, you must be wondering how’s that possible? Well, it’s no stroke of luck. We combined our counselors’ expertise with our 1 million+ admit/reject database to create a product that consistently delivers top admissions for our students.

TLDR version of how we do it –

1. Team of 6 experts

test prep coach, primary & secondary counsellors, document editor, Visa expert & financial advisor

2. Your dashboard

track your entire application journey & communicate with us right from your Yocket app or website

3. Our dashboard

our team is also able to keep track of your entire journey through their back-end dashboard

4. Mentorship

our community feeds data to our predictive algorithms and connects you with peers and seniors

University reps spend 7 to 8 minutes reviewing each application – the same application package which the student spent 300 to 500 hours getting ready!

Our seasoned counsellor will not only share the load of these 500 hours with you but also bring out your best in applications, suggest suitable universities and courses, and help you avoid that can cause a loss of an entire year or thousands of rupees.

Press and Media Mention


Can you get into top uni by yourself?

“Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”

Study abroad application is no rocket science, and in all honesty you can do this by yourself. However, thousands of students do attempt to do it themselves each year, only to face the below problems eventually:

Self-(un)Selection Bias:

“My profile is not strong enough to crack a top-50 university, I will only apply to universities beyond 100th or 150th rank”

  • Misleading and overload of information:
  • “My friends say it’s better to avoid justifying my 3rd year backlogs scores through my illness issue in the SOP”
  • “First link on Google search says 15th Dec deadline and second link says 20th Dec”.
  • Not understanding university requirements clearly:
  • “Have I made the ATS and VPN application for German Institutes correctly?”
  • “GRE optional vs GRE blind universities”
  • Stress and Anxiety:
  • “What if my VISA gets rejected?”
  • “3 of my friends got XYZ admits, but I still haven’t heard back after 36 days …”
  • “My GRE is next week, and I am not prepared yet 😟”
  • Missed Opportunities:
  • “I didn’t know I was eligible for a scholarship at this university ”
  • “My university is asking for a GRE score, and I haven’t taken it!”
  • Unable to showcase achievements:
  • “I don’t have anything interesting to showcase in my SOP”
  • “How do I put all my achievements in a 2 page resume?”

Problem is that you’ll only realise a lot of things only after doing them, by which time it will be too late. Counsellors have the experience of hundreds of students, and the Yocket Premium platform collectively has experience of tens of thousands of students. Learn from their mistakes, rather than making yours first. This is too crucial to make mistakes and then learn.

Some of the most important benefits of availing a counselling service:

  • Strategy: getting into top universities requires a well planned strategy, which only an experienced counsellor can form
  • Coach: just getting a gym membership won’t make you fit; a trainer who makes sure you work-out will. A counsellor is your coach who will make sure you work towards that coveted admit.
  • Save money during applications: save thousands of rupees by not applying to wrong universities, avoiding visa rejections, avoiding taking tests multiple times, etc.
  • Save money in your education: save lakhs of rupees in your course fees by improving the chances of getting a scholarship drastically and through better interest rates on education loans.
  • Save time: by outsourcing some of your work to counsellor you save time; but more importantly by getting right admits or avoiding visa rejections, you can prevent wasting an entire semester or even a year.
  • Cheerleader: this journey can be an emotional rollercoaster ride. Counsellors will be there to always support you, listen to you, motivate you and soothe your anxieties.


Remember, there are no extra points for playing life on hard mode.

Counsellors are an easy mode. Take it. Your goal is not to learn and do the process yourself, but to get into a good university and study.

There are 3 types of counsellors out there:

  1. Premium (like Yocket where you pay for the services – generally upwards of Rs 30,000)
  2. Agents (where you don’t pay anything or pay a minimal amount to the service provider, but they make money from the universities)
  3. YOU (or your friends / family) – if you are doing the process by yourself then you are your own counsellor
