  • When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
  • We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
  • Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
  • Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
  • The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
  • If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
  • We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning. 
  • We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

    A Day in the life of…

    Testimonial from Haedam from Korea, now studying at the University of Oxford…

    ‘I learnt how to study here, not just in terms of learning about subjects, but also about Teamwork and spending my time efficiently. I became a more independent learner, if I am curious I do research and think about it, which will be absolutely essential in the future.

    Whenever I had a questions that I could not find the answer to on my own, teachers helped me by explaining it until I did. Cambridge is a good place to study. The city is quiet and peaceful, you are also motivated by the colleges of the University of Cambridge and the intelligent students here.”

    Testimonial from Yulia from Ukraine, now studying at University of Bristol…

    “I like that I am able to focus on the subjects that interest me, and which will be useful for my future studies. The teacher’s aim is your success, and you really feel their passion for their subjects. Our economics teacher made an extra economics club focusing on strategies for achieving the best grades in our exam. There are also

    lots of clubs and evening activities, I found the ‘meet the economics examiner’ session most useful as it made my exams clearer.

    Studying in Cambridge is an amazing opportunity. The atmosphere of the city motivates you to pursue your goals. I want to combine work and study, and start to build my future economist career from the beginning of my university studies. My main goal is to influence my country’s economy and help its growth and development.”

    Christian from Malaysia now at the University of Manchester…

    ‘Everyone was very welcoming, which was great because it was my first time studying overseas. Studying here has made me more independent. Teachers made it clear that just doing class work and home work was not enough, and independence I learned will aid me at university.

    Cambridge is very peaceful, it feels like a big library full of knowledge, which is great for a student who wants to discover new things. I even enjoyed the weather!”
