Working with a third party provider reduces your independence and increases the cost of your project. Therefore, in almost all cases, it is strongly discouraged. There are times, however, when working with a third party is the only way to accomplish your goals. If you wish to work with a third-party provider, the burden will be upon you to prove that it is necessary, that you could not do the project on your own. Also, in most cases, you will be asked to remain abroad or at your project location for a significant period of time when you are not under the aegis of a third party. Any tuition costs imposed by a third party will not be covered by Magellan.
