F.A.Q

How will the Covid-19 pandemic affect my plans to study in the UK

There are many still many unpredictable elements to the pandemic and the UK Government is currently assessing the country's exit plans and how this will affect the way UK universities deliver degree courses to international students. We are liaising regularly with officials and monitoring the situation closely to ensure we can provide appropriate advice. You can find the recent information on our blog.

Where are you based?

We are headquartered in the UK in a city called Milton Keynes (which is about one hour north of London). We also have representatives around the world who can talk to you about your UK study options. All our representatives have studied as international students at UK universities so have personal experience of what it's like to study at degree-level in the UK.

Can I apply to study in the UK before I finish my current studies?

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.

How much are your services?

Prices of our standard packages can be found on our services page. If you require a more bespoke service contact us for a quote.

Can you help me to apply to Oxford or Cambridge?

Do I need to take a foundation course or pre-master's course?

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.

Can you help me get a visa?

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.

Are you an official representative for particular universities in the UK?

We have a strong network across all UK universities to ensure we are up-to-date with their courses and procedures. However, as we are not sales agents for universities, we are able to provide independent advice on the most suitable universities and courses.

Can I use your services if I am not an international student?

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.

Why do you charge for services when agents can provide services for free?

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.

Can you provide a guaranteed place at a UK university?

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.

Can you help me find a PhD?

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.

Can you help me find a place at non-UK university?

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