A warm welcome to BritEd


We provide cutting edge advice on UK study opportunities to students from Southern Africa. For over 20 years we’ve been in the field. Many clients come to us through personal recommendation.  For all our know-how and experience, we believe it’s our personal touch, our consummate research skills and our tenacity that creates our winning formula.

Our services are geared to assist self funded, full fee paying international students applying for UK undergraduate and taught postgraduate degree programmes.  We also offer specialist advice on UK medical school entry.

School leaving qualifications we deal with include the South African National Senior Certificate (IEB and DBE), Cambridge International A-levels and the International Baccalaureate. Most of our clients come from South Africa and Zimbabwe. We also assist small numbers from Botswana, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Nigeria. These students usually hear about us while at boarding school in Grahamstown, KwaZulu-Natal, Johannesburg or Cape Town.

BritEd’s exclusive  focus on UK institutions means we know the systems inside out. You will be pleasantly surprised to find how manageable the application process can be, with us to guide you every step of the  way.  Britain’s leading universities provide a rich and diversified experience overall. Our students tend to thrive in this environment and do exceptionally well.

Our mission –  To ensure our students make smart study choices for the UK, whilst respecting any ideas they may have of their own.  Firstly we look at academic reputation, then scrutinise entry requirements and course content. Next we factor in social environment, the type of campus and quality of accommodation. Following this, cultural amenities, sporting facilities and proximity to vibrant UK cities are also taken into account.

Our trademark – Acute understanding of individual needs, coupled with a strategy to optimise chances of success. This comes with an intensive level of back-up and support to the student and their family at all times.

The result We are highly regarded by the universities we work with and by our clients alike for our expertise in all matters concerning UK undergraduate admissions.

  • Extensive knowledge of UK Higher Education systems
  • Telling it like it is and cutting through the marketing hype
  • Tactics to help weigh up options carefully
  • In-depth understanding admissions procedures
  • Ability to troubleshoot tricky applications
