EXPERT KNOWLEDGE OF UK EDUCATION SYSTEM
With an established record spanning over 15 years in the higher education sector, AQTD has accrued specialist knowledge and key experience in the UK higher education system. We have deeply embedded partnerships and policies that require us to actively remain up-to-date with the latest developments in learning and changes in program specifications, to continually provide you with expert, transparent and true information.
LOCAL KNOWLEDGE AND CULTURAL BRIDGES
We have a strong understanding of the causes of hindrances in international student recruitment, such as language proficiencies, cultural interpretations and visa specifications. We use our local knowledge and cultural expertise to provide an invaluable common language between students and education providers to prevent such hindrances and encourage informed access to learning.
“There are questions that an agent can answer that we (universities) can’t answer.”
– Report (Managing International Student Recruitment Agents)
PRIVILEGED ACCESS AND INFORMATION
We treat each of our partner relationships individually and endeavour to understand and reflect their respective standards and ethos. We act as an extension to their admission and international teams and are accordingly privileged with access to their internal resources, which we pass on to you in the form of tangible information and immediate updates in respect of your application.
PERSONIFICATION & CONFIDENCE
Studying overseas has a huge impact on a student’s life and is a decision commonly made under much apprehension, yet the application process and communications with education providers are unfortunately found to be impersonal. An agent provides a gateway, a trusted person whom students can continually speak with and can provide the clarification and reassurance required by the student and their family in terms of the application process and transitioning to the UK.
We seek to provide a comprehensive service that will enable a seamless transition to the UK, whilst giving the highest return in terms of financial and time investments. Beyond providing a first-class education counselling service for the duration of a student’s study, our consultants also assist with; language tests, pre-departure and post-arrival briefings, visa and immigration advice, flights and accommodation.
We have an extensive track-record of successfully placing students on their preferred study program and securing learning opportunities that are otherwise predominantly unattainable. The role of an educational agent is one which is strongly promoted and backed by education institutions and government in the UK.
“In the UK, the British Council encourages the use of agents amongst UK education providers and aims to develop a wider acceptance and understanding of the role and value of agents in student recruitment.”
