Higher Education Guardian
Higher Education Guardian – A Guide to UK University Terminology
Higher education guardian: part of their role is to help your child settle into their chosen university, and look after them while they are there. An education guardian can help you with a range of things, from arranging host families to ticket booking. The UK system can be mystifying, so let’s look at a few common terms.
When applying for higher education in the UK, it can really help to have an education guardian there to assist you to find the right university and with making a successful application. Language barriers and the differences between the UK’s education system and the one you are used to can be one source of common confusion. Guardian services can help you decipher terms you might not have come across before and explain what they mean in relation to your UCAS application. For example, if you have not grown up in the UK, you might not know whether you have the equivalent qualifications to GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education) taken by students aged 14-16 in Britain. Understanding the difference between undergraduate and postgraduate or MA (Master of Arts) is another confusing example. The use of the term MA to also mean an undergraduate degree studied at one of the UK’s many ancient universities, like Cambridge or Oxford can add to the problems of finding the right course. These are just a few of the abbreviations used in further and higher education. It can be bewildering, but having access to AEGIS guardianship means you won’t have to worry. A good guardian will be able to explain these terms and more.

Brilliant! You're company efficiency is totally amazing and helpful.
Mr Joe Wong, Parent Lancing College
I will need to personally email and thank you and the host family that my daughters stayed with over the weekend for their kind gesture. Their thoughtfulness towards understanding the need for a girl of my daughters age to feel secured and cared for, I am not taking for granted.
It was such a relief when she told me that you had already arranged for a packed lunch and the family provided all their favourite foods.
This ones, (host family) you, certainly hand-picked ! And I thank you for that.! With many like them, there is still hope in the loss of empathy in humanity.
Have a lovely day
Patience Evans, Parent St Mary’s
Thank you for your mail with Peeranut’s travel arrangements attached. Very efficient, as always.
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for all your brilliant support throughout the year and to wish you a lovely summer.
Peter O’Donoghue, Head of Boys Boarding, Bournemouth Collegiate School
Hope things are fine with you. Now the school is over and Sarah is now on her way home...
Therefore, I would like to say thank you for all your kindness and hospitality that has been extended to Sarah all this time. Unfortunately, I didn't attend the Speech Day this year so I didn't have the opportunity to express my gratitude personally to you. Hopefully someday somewhere an opportunity would arise for me to do so.
I wish you and the whole family a joyful summer break...and all the best for the future.
With warmest regards
Rita Tjahjadi, Parent Prior Park College, Bath
Thank you kindly for the travel details that you have sent through for both Natalie and Edith for the end of this term and start of next term - you are very well organised to be this far ahead! Many thanks for clarifying and sending on details for the other girls. It certainly makes life easier when return arrangements are sent in and you are one of the few agencies that does this; much appreciated!
Helen Tomlinson, Head of Boarding, Rye St Antony School
Thank you for your letter.
I have read the letter word by word, and I also told to Shaobo's mother about your letter. We are unable to express our gratitude to you with words and really appreciate your so considerate care and help to Shaobo. And now we could put our minds at ease. It is so good luck for Shaobo to meet you in UK!
Lou Jirong, Parent, Sidcot School
I am very impressed with your smooth and effective organisation. All the very best.
