    Education Agency or Educational Agency

    Hi there, If a company deals with sending college students abroad for higher education, should I say that that company is a "Overseas Education Agency" or "Overseas Educational Agency"? Or, when modifying a Noun, what's the difference between "education" and "educational"? And I'd appreciate your help very much if you could give me another better expression of the company's name in English. Thank you for reading my post.

    Re: Education Agency or Educational Agency

    The company is an overseas education organisation, a company that arranges overseas education; "education" is a noun. Possibly they also provide educational materials.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: Education Agency or Educational Agency

    You could say, overseas-education agency.
    However, I would say, international education agency.
