Whether inspired by a family member, a friend or simply the desire to explore and get out into the world, studying abroad is the first step for an ambitious young person who aspires to get ahead in life.
For young people around the world, studying in the UK offers valuable international experience, broadening their horizons and offering the chance to gain a competitive advantage in the job market, while meeting people from all walks of life.
The UK is high on international students’ list of destinations due to its history, global language, and reputation for high-quality, competitively priced degrees. UK universities welcome overseas students and are particularly keen to increase the diversity of their student bodies.
The process of applying to UK universities can, however, be a daunting and complex bridge for students to cross: Who can I trust for objective advice about what to include in my application? How do I pick the right university for me? Is my level of English good enough?
There are real issues of trust, access and understanding at a major decision point for a young adult. Good advice and support can make all the difference between a good choice and a bad one. Between a successful and rewarding experience and a poor one.
We believe international students should have access to trusted, expert advice about UK universities and courses. To be supported by professional and experienced advisers throughout their whole journey: from the first tentative enquiries, through the application process, and right up to their arrival in the UK and throughout their life at university.
We are your bridge to a UK university.
My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
