A warm welcome to BritEd


We’ve been advising students from Southern Africa on study opportunities in the UK for almost 20 years. To this day feedback from clients still makes us glow with pride.  Much goes into a successful application. Above all, we believe it’s our personal touch that creates a winning formula.

Our services are geared specifically to assist self funded, full fee paying international students applying for academic degree programmes in the UK.  We also offer specialist advice on UK medical school entry.  Regrettably, we are unable to provide information on scholarships. Please see www.educationuk.org if you are in need of financial assistance to study in the UK.

School leaving qualifications we deal with include the South African National Senior Certificate (IEB and Government Education Departments), 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 – Fine-tuned and cutting-edge advice, 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.
