Tips for Parents thinking of enrolling their children to UK

Students have the exciting chance to study abroad, and many international students choose to do so in the UK. There are many factors to take into account if you’re a parent thinking about sending your child to study in the UK. In this post, we’ll provide you some advice on how to handle this situation and go through the advantages of hiring an educational consultant.

Research universities and courses:

Before applying, research the universities and courses that are right for your child. Consider the rankings, location, and reputation of each institution. Ensure that the courses offered align with your child’s academic and career goals.

Benefits of Seeking an Educational Consultant:

Personalized advice: An educational consultant can provide personalized advice based on your child’s academic and career goals, as well as their individual needs and preferences.

Understand the application process:

Understanding the standards and dates is crucial because applying to UK universities can be challenging. Academic transcripts, English language proficiency test results, personal statements, and references must all be submitted by your child.

Benefits of Seeking an Educational Consultant

Assistance with the application process: An educational consultant can walk your child through it and make sure that their application is strong and it will get accepted by the University admissions. 

Consider finances:

Tuition fees, housing costs, living expenditures, and travel expenses must all be taken into account when estimating the cost of studying in the UK. Seek out any scholarships or other financial aid for which your child may qualify.

Benefits of working with an Educational Consultant

Information on scholarships and financial aid: An educational consultant can assist with the application process and provide details on scholarships and other financial aid programmes that your child may qualify for.

Arrange accommodation and transportation:

When your child has been admitted to a UK university, it is time to make travel and housing arrangements. On-campus housing and neighbouring student housing are available at many institutions, however they can be pricey. You might want to think about renting a flat or living in a house with other students for private housing.

What an Educational Consultant can do for your child? 

Support with accommodation and transportation: An educational consultant can provide advice and support with arranging accommodation and transportation, including finding suitable housing and transportation options.

Prepare for culture shock:

Many universities offer foundation year entry for those who don’t meet the typical entry requirements for higher education. This means that you can study a foundation year before you begin your degree. This year is designed to prepare you for higher education, with the core elements of the foundation year and English for Academic Purposes tailored to the subject you plan to study at the degree level. Once you’ve completed the foundation year, as long as you meet the required grades, you can then proceed to your degree course. However, if you wish to transfer to a different university once the foundation year is completed, you will need to re-apply through UCAS.

You can apply for International Year Zero using any kind of the diploma or alternatively you may get accepted based on your cv and work experience*

What’s the difference between a foundation degree and a foundation year?

A foundation degree is a type of undergraduate qualification that focuses on developing the skills necessary for employability in a certain sector, such as business management or engineering. A two-year program leads to a higher-level qualification, such as a bachelor’s or master’s degree. A foundation year, on the other hand, is a one-year program designed to prepare students for higher education. It focuses on developing core academic skills and understanding the higher education system as a whole rather than any specific vocational skill. Foundation year entry is usually available to those who don’t meet the entry requirements of a standard degree course.
