WHAT DOES MY STUDENT ADVISOR DO FOR ME?
There are several steps in the application process to UK universities and we help you through each step to make everything a little easier for you. In the first instance, your advisor will help you find the right university and course for you. We do this by looking at your academic background, your career ambitions, what you want to study, as well as other elements that are important to you. Your advisor will then match you up with some of our partner universities and help you find the perfect place that meets your needs. You may have requirements such as proximity to the airport, sports facilities, size of city, geographical location, natural surroundings, international environment, the opportunity to bring your dog or cat - or something completely different. We look at everything that is important to you before we match you up with the universities and what they have to offer!
After you have found the perfect university and course options for you, the next step begins. Your advisor will guide you through documents and information the universities need via our internal application portal. Using the information you provide and approve, your advisor will create the entire UK application for you so you do not have to worry about the application at all. UK application formats and wordings can be different than what you are used to, which why our assistance can be so beneficial. When your application is ready, we will send you login details so that you can easily review the application before you submit it to the universities. Your advisor will then help you accept the offer from the university when you have made your choice, and guide you through everything that needs to be done before university starts and you arrive in the UK. There are many pieces that need to fall into place before you are able to go to the UK to study, and your advisor is there all the way and will help you with absolutely everything you need!
