Kevin Newton is the founder of An Education Abroad, an Independent Educational Consultancy which focuses on helping American students find degree options around the world. Since quite literally the week he returned from his own degree abroad, Kevin has helped students save time and money by getting a degree abroad, all while opening unbelievable professional and personal opportunities.
Kevin studied History and Middle Eastern Studies at the College of William & Mary, and has a Masters degree in Islamic and Chinese law from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. He has been widely published on both the geopolitics of the Eastern Hemisphere as well as Islamic finance.
His love of global education, as well as a working knowledge of a half dozen languages, have helped him place students in both undergraduate and graduate programs as varied as the University of Edinburgh, Oxford, HEC Paris, Tsinghua University (in Beijing) and more. Additionally, Kevin has spent time as a classroom teacher, where he taught Roman and medieval history to middle school students.
When he’s not helping his students negotiate international admissions, Kevin enjoys waking up at 4 am to smoke the perfect pulled pork and visiting art museums with his wife/business partner.
Mark and Lisa focus on colleges that are located in the US and Canada, but Mark was looking to partner with a firm that specializes in International admissions. We are elated to partner with Kevin. After talking with Kevin at length over multiple meetings over multiple months, and after talking with those who have worked with Kevin, we could not be happier to recommend Kevin to any of our clients who want to attend a college outside of the United States or Canada.
Kevin possesses the highest level of integrity; he cares about the students he works with and he is an outstanding communicator. He is also a student of colleges. He is always studying and learning so he can serve his families with maximal effectiveness.
There are some students who want to look at schools in the US and Canada and abroad, and Mark and Kevin will co-counsel in these instances. Kevin is also a member of the Southern Association for College Admissions Counseling.
