University Guardian – Support Your Child In The UK

University guardian schemes can operate slightly differently to those for younger pupils. If you’re sending your son or daughter to study in the UK, they may still need more support than UK-based students. An education guardian can ensure that your child receives any services they require whilst allowing them the degree of independence they expect as a young adult. Whether you and your child wish to choose a package that offers a high level of support or simply to have access to the essentials that will aid their life in a foreign country, good guardianship organisations have packages to suit your circumstances.

What Does An Education Guardian Do?

Quite simply, an education guardian and education consultant acts as a point of contact for students, parents and the university or institution of study. They offer a range of services that make a student’s stay in the UK safe and comfortable. These can include arranging transportation, facilitating medical arrangements and providing emergency contact if the need arises. In addition, they can source and vet host families, whether these are required permanently or for infrequent stays. A foreign student guardian ensures that a pupil’s time in the UK is a pleasant experience. Student guardians are also on hand to tend to any problems with a student’s welfare that may arise during their studies. These can range from the rare, such as expulsions and the necessity to return home, to common problems that students of all ages can struggle with. These include feelings of alienation, confusion and anxiety that may impact their emotional health as well as affecting their studies. A university guardian can offer a young adult the support they need to achieve their academic goals whilst offering them a degree of independence. However, if this is not what your child needs and if they require a more substantial package, there are guardianship packages available that can accommodate their needs. A good guardianship organisation will place the needs of an individual student above all else, and find a package that suits their requirements. As a parent sending a young adult to a foreign country to study, this affords peace of mind for you and offers your child stability in their temporary home.

Guardians UK – Securing A Student’s Future

There are many reasons why a pupil may choose to study in the UK. Whether they are a younger student who requires a boarding school guardian or an older university pupil, they may still be away from home for the first time and this can be an isolating experience. Guardians UK ensure that, whatever the age of the student, they have the support they need. The primary reason for them being in the UK is, naturally, for them to excel academically and achieve their potential. However, a secondary and equally valid reason may be to improve their language skills and experience another culture. A good education guardian will be able to put them in touch with societies and groups that may be of interest to them and provide advice when a student may not know who else to turn to. This can prove invaluable in a strange country where you don’t know anybody else. From a parent’s perspective, you can be assured that your child is getting the best care and advice available to someone in their situation. This is why choosing the right guardianship company is absolutely vital to a student’s academic success during their stay in the UK. One of the first things you should check when evaluating any guardianship organisation is whether they are AEGIS accredited. If they are then they will proudly declare it on their website and correspondence. It means that they have been assessed by the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students and is a badge of honour for all guardianship companies. Academic Guardians UK is one such organisation.

Dear Kelsey, Brilliant! You're company efficiency is totally amazing and helpful.
Good morning Dawn & Andrew
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

Dear Dawn & team at Academic Guardians
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

Dear AGUK,
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!
