We offer a tried and tested system to make the application process run smoothly:

 

  • When you first get in touch with us we’ll ask you to complete a detailed  questionnaire.  This helps us gain a quick overview of your situation and enables us to assess whether we are best placed to assist you.  If we need to request school reports or a reference at this stage, we’ll let you know as soon as we receive your completed questionnaire.

 

  • Once we’ve confirmed we are happy to take you on as a client, we will arrange an initial consultation.  We frequently use Skype video for our interviews, but will always try to meet you in person if possible when we travel to South Africa or Zimbabwe annually.  Your initial consultation will give you the chance to ask lots of questions and allow us to get to know you a bit, plus explain exactly how we work.  After this we’ll send you a quote for our services to assist you further if you wish to proceed. If you’re happy with this, we’ll begin work on your behalf shortly thereafter.

 

  • We offer a highly personal approach to each individual student. Once you’re on board as a client you would stay in contact with BritEd throughout the application process mainly by email and Skype where necessary.

 

  • Absolute integrity. There is no hard sell.  Any advice we provide is  always done with your best interests at heart, irrespective of whether we represent a university you wish to apply to or not. We provide in-depth information on all study choices which we deem appropriate for you once we have assessed your study plans, academic background and other lifestyle factors. Students and parents are fully involved in the decision making process from start to finish.

 

  • Detailed information is offered on entry requirements, course content, social and geographical factors, accommodation and catering, sports and cultural/religious facilities, tuition fees, living expenses and how to prepare for the student visa application if required. We ensure our students make informed choices and understand how the system works from the word go.

 

  • We’ll offer you full support, back-up and assistance throughout the application process. The progress of UCAS applications is carefully monitored once it has been submitted and regular feedback is given to students while they are waiting for offers from universities to appear on UCAS TRACK. Our UCAS navigation skills are well honed! You will never come unstuck if you’ve got us at your side and follow our advice to the letter!

 

  • Wherever necessary we liaise directly with international office and admissions staff on behalf of our students to ensure the best possible outcome to an application.

 

  • Once all offers are made we’ll assist you with making a final decision as to which offer to accept. Should you wish to go on campus visits we can provide information to help you  arrange this.

 

  • After an offer is accepted we ensure all the red tape is dealt with so that things move smoothly to the next stage of the application cycle which involves students applying for accommodation.

 

  • For student visa applications we work closely with  experts in the field who are highly experienced at dealing with this.
