It is free to create a Student Central profile. There may be an application fee to process your application. This may vary depending on the universities to which you are applying and the level of support you require with your application. We will inform you of any fees before you agree to progress with any application.

Staff at all UK universities can create an account and use the platfrom to search for and connect with suitable pre-screened students. If you wish to access students' data or progress an application, we require that your university is signed up to our partnership terms and conditions. If you are a university user you will be able to see on your account whether your university is already signed up. If it is not, and you wish to progress an application, you can message us on your message centre.

Yes, if you are nearing the end of your studies in your home country but do not yet have your final grades you can still begin your UK university application. However, your acceptance onto a degree course may be conditional. This means that you will have to achieve a certain level of grades on your current course before you get a letter of acceptance onto your chosen course and can apply for a study visa.

You may need undertake a pre-entry course to 'bridge the gap' between your current qualifications and the required university entry qualifications. These courses are known as 'pathway courses', generally foundation courses (for entry to undergraduate degrees) and pre-master's (for entry to postgraduate taught courses).

Some students also take pre-sessional English courses as a requirement for degree entry.

We can help you find and secure a place on the most appropriate pathway course for your chosen university and subject. Find out more about whether you need to take a foundation course.

Our OISC-registered visa agents provide a range of services focused on tier 4 student visas as well as work and entrepreneur visas for graduates.

We can provide consultation and advice services as well as application checking services.

Yes, although our services are focused on meeting the needs of international students, many of them can also prove valuable to UK students. Our university matching services and UCAS application services, in particular, are a useful resource for home-schooled students or those who have been out of education for over a year.

Education agents tend to operate as sales representatives for specific universities. This means they earn their income from commission paid by the universities; they are therefore able to offer certain services to students for free. However, we act as independent advisers to provide impartial advice for students.

Universities accept students on merit but, by working with us to select the most suitable universities and prepare a strong application, you are giving yourself the best chance to secure a place in a suitable university.

Currently we help students looking for taught degrees (undergraduate and postgraduate). We do not currently help students looking to undertake a research degree such as a PhD.

We are experts in UK universities and do not currently provide advice or support to students looking to study in other countries.
