Your Student Journey


Whether you are a UK resident or coming to study from abroad, we can tailor a programme of support which can help you at each step of your university journey. We can support you through all the stages including making your degree choice, applying for a degree, moving to university, through to graduating.


Making your choice and applying to university

Your choice of university is one of the most important decisions you will make. Our one-to-one approach provides a personal service and our expert advisers will help you maximise your potential in applying for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Choosing the right degree course is the first and often most challenging step. We discuss your future career aspirations, to ensure we match your academic interests with your future goals, and therefore make the right choices across all subject areas. Finally we will assist you in selecting the best place to study to meet your academic needs and have the best possible student experience.

Our bespoke one-to-one support will help you succeed in your application for both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. We will work with you to produce a compelling personal statement, and provide you with the help you to submit a successful university application.


Transitioning to university

Once you have secured your place at your preferred university, the next step is making the move to start your studies at university. If you are coming to study in the UK from overseas, this can seem like a daunting prospect. To make this transition as smooth as possible we can help you every step on the way.

In addition to working with you to arrange the more practical aspects of your move, such as visa requirements and student accommodation, we can provide you with a range of tools and new skills to ensure you start your studies confident and excited about your academic journey.


Succeeding at university

During your time at university we can help you to enhance your study skills, build your confidence, and succeed in your studies. Uni Direct also offer a unique university mentoring service so you and your parents can have peace of mind that there is always someone available to help with academic concerns and pastoral care.

We can provide regular one-to-one advice on current and upcoming academic challenges, and specific support at key times in the academic year. We also run an informative and fun summer school to provide you with the tools to succeed in your upcoming year at university.
