“I was helped by Expat Student for my application to British universities on UCAS. I must admit that I was a little late because I started to take an interest in it at the start of my final school year… However, the support that was offered to me was complete and effective, despite the tight timing which we were faced with. From the choice of the Bsc to which I was going to apply to the writing of the Personal Statement, everything was perfect! Thanks to Louise I discovered the Bsc Management Science at UCL and the Personal Statement that I produced under her guidance allowed me to be admitted. Mrs. Thomson, in addition to accompanying me on UCAS, made me discover and helped me to apply to other universities elsewhere in the world such as Bocconi or McGill. I highly recommend Expat Student because Louise’s support was excellent and allowed me to be admitted to the universities I was aiming for !

“Our daughter decided that her further education would be in the UK and as long term overseas residents we were completely unaware of the processes required to make this a reality. We made initial contact with Louise and it was instantly apparent that she possessed the knowledge, connections and capability to fully guide our daughter through the whole process. Louise assisted in university selection,application, personal statement, interview technique and questions and was available to assist with any queries or additional help as and when required.
We are very grateful for all of Louise´s diligence as our daughter received an offer to study Medicine in her first round of applications. The service provided comes at a cost but in our opinion it was money well spent, not just because our child was successful, but because Louise went above and beyond our expectations. Should our second child look to the UK when his time comes we will definitely utilise Louise to facilitate for him,

“Louise has accompanied our daughter remarkably throughout her application process abroad. She helped her to refine her project, to select the courses in line with her academic record, and to prepare her applications. It is a long road which began the year of her penultimate school year and which ends with several proposals for Universities in the UK. Louise always took the time to answer our questions as parents and made no mistakes in any of her recommendations. Our daughter is going to UCL which was her first choice and we are absolutely delighted to have chosen Epat student to accompany us.

Parent of a student going to Warwick
“A big thank you to Louise and her team for this very high quality support. Our daughter wanted to go to study in England, she is taken in the biggest universities (UCL, King’s College). Beyond the precious and decisive help on the file, the advice given on the future life in London but also the discussions between our daughter and Louise made it possible to make the most appropriate choices in terms of choice of universities. In short, we highly recommend!

“I discovered “Expatstudent” in October 2023 when I was looking for a company capable of helping me organize myself to study in England. The first contact immediately reassured me about the quality of the advice and the work provided by Louise and her team, a quality that was indeed confirmed throughout the year. The support in their approach is personalized and organized in stages, the contact is fast (emails and video calls) and the exchanges are reassuring. The precise knowledge of each university (for me English) and their admission procedure allow us to be well directed and advised on our best opportunities according to academic results, tastes, budgets. Thanks to Expat Student I was able to get accepted into each of the 5 UK universities I applied for, including UCL and King’s College (which I probably wouldn’t have got without the help of Louise and the team). I recommend 100%!

“Louise accompanied our two children in their respective higher education projects (history for one and veterinary studies for the other). She knows perfectly well the expectations of the training courses for which she is preparing and her help (over two years in both cases) has made it possible to unfold the various stages serenely, from the choice of courses to the final decisions. She has excellent direct contacts in university recruitment services. Our children were both accepted into the courses they wanted.

“Expat Student allowed me not only to optimize my application for Bachelor degrees in Europe, but also to refine what I wanted to do after my baccalaureate. I was able to quickly target Business Schools in Europe and Canada and be sure of my choices. It is very comfortable to be guided by a professional like Expat Student who masters the application process (often very complicated) and who knows how to optimise the application. Louise and her partners (preparation for certification in English, math test in English, etc.) provide invaluable help, and I could not have obtained the BBA that I have without them.

“My daughter chose a challenging degree for college where school counselors were not too helpful, and we did not have any idea where to start for college application.
Louise came recommended by 2 friends, and I am so thankful for her help, guidance and dedication to my child. She goes beyond what we expected from a counselor.
She took away all my anxiety and nervousness and helped Chiara with the entire process. She also spends a lot of time getting to know your child and exactly what they
want, which is really important for me and then guides both the parents and child through the entire process, which can be extremely stressful . She was also a great
emotional supporter for my child as going through IB and college applications is a high stress environment.
I’m so glad we found her and rest assured she takes care of everything – paperwork, deadlines, making the right choice for your child, speaking to the colleges, preparing
for the essays …
Thank you so much, Louise

“I highly recommend Expat Student. Why ? It’s a team on a human scale that’s there for you at all times with all your questions, and that manages procedures and deadlines that aren’t always easy for parents to understand. Seriousness, availability, attentiveness and great professionalism are the qualities of Expat Student. What’s more, the team built up a relationship of trust with my son, understood his personality perfectly and was able to recommend what suited him best. If one of your children is going abroad to study, trust them with your eyes closed. Many thanks to the whole team.

“A big heartfelt thank you to Expat Student for being there for us over the last few years. Our son is now studying International Relations at UCL London. And our daughter is starting the BBA at ESADE in Barcelona in September. You’ve helped us to understand our children’s motivations and educational options. You were an invaluable guide in navigating the application process and deadlines. We love the perfect mix of support and empowerment that you have with young people. We wish many families the joy of having you as their “partner”.

“I would like to express my enthusiasm and my satisfaction with regard to this higher education application support counselor for students wishing to study abroad. This service is simply outstanding and has been instrumental in our son’s educational journey. Louise provided us with clear, reliable and up-to-date information on study programs, universities, admission procedures and country-specific requirements. Another appreciable aspect of Expat Student is its personalized approach to each student. Louise took the time to understand our son’s academic and professional hopes in order to guide him towards the best options corresponding to his objectives. In addition, Expat Student guided us for all the administrative procedures related to admission applications and study visas. The often complex process of applying abroad thus becomes much smoother thanks to their constant support. In conclusion, I highly recommend Expat Student to anyone considering continuing their studies abroad.

“Expat Student immediately understood my daughter’s profile and was able to adapt to her needs, desires and budget.
Louise accompanied us throughout this fabulous adventure, guiding us, advising us and supporting us at every stage. She has been patient, caring and extremely efficient, whatever our requests or changes of direction along the way.
She was always available and made easy things that were complicated for us in the application process of some universities.
My daughter has been admitted to all the universities she has applied to: Concordia, Leiden, Amsterdam (we are still waiting for Trinity)
Our adventure with Expat Student is coming to an end and we would like to thank the whole team for their great professionalism, kindness and efficiency.

“We turned to Expat Student for guidance in applying to universities in Canada and the U.K. We had heard from another parent at my son’s school about how good Expat Student is. We live in Asia and we were basically clueless when it comes to the options and process.
Louise eased our jitters and to gave us expert guidance to choose the best options for us and led us through the entire application process.
As a result, our son was accepted into all of the U.K. and Canadian universities he applied through Expat Student majoring in Biology! (UoT, UBC, Waterloo, Calgary, Kent, Liverpool, Royal Holloway, Surrey, Sussex)
I’m definitely going to turn to Expat Student when my second son is applying to universities.

“From our very first meeting with Louise, we knew that we had made the right choice in Expat Student. Over this last year, Louise has helped us every step of the way, from first discussions on choice of courses and potential universities, to help shaping the Personal Statement and getting us through the application process. Her deep knowledge of the UK universities and how to navigate UCAS has been invaluable, and her calming presence always there to answer any of our questions or concerns. More than a service, this has been a true collaboration and we will forever be indebted to Louise and Expat Student for helping us get to this moment on the cusp of a new adventure in the UK for my daughter.

“I am so pleased with Expat Student and their expertise. Being a student studying in France, I had no knowledge of the British university application system and was feeling very lost, whether that was choosing the right course for me or universities that would be the right fit for my needs and my goals – and just overall did not know where to start. Expat Student has been such a crucial help throughout this whole process by listening and by accompanying me through every step of the way. Louise was very efficient and available and I want to thank her for taking time to make this process as smooth and easy as it was. I feel so reassured and confident now approaching this new chapter of my life. I cannot recommend Expat Student enough!

“We chose to be helped by Expat Student for two main reasons. The first being that the contact with Louise and her team was immediately very professional and reassuring. The second reason was the complementarity of their two profiles (one British, the other French) combining a very good knowledge of the universities across the Channel, their expectations, the UCAS procedure and also the pathways available to the students in France, in order to compare them;
