Application Support

Choosing the
Right destination - for you

Transitioning from school to university is an exciting time for students and parents. But moving to a new country can be daunting, how do you make the decision about the best place for you?  Have I ticked all the boxes and supplied all the necessary documents? What are the application deadlines and how do I know I haven’t missed them already? The list goes on…

Fortunately, our trained and knowledgeable counsellors and partners are here to support students at every step in the application process, no matter where they’re applying and hoping to study. Here’s how we can help:




Our students have access to destination experts who support their applications no matter where they are looking to study. Whether it’s submitting UCAS applications for the UK, completing a Common App for the US, or applying to a local UAE university, we can advise and provide support throughout the process. That includes advising on deadlines, personal statements and everything in between.
