Independent / private school

At Study Links, we pride ourselves on assisting international students during their time in the UK.

We are highly experienced in the education and care of international students.  We help students understand the unique expectations of the UK education system so that they can succeed.

We know what kinds of problems your child and you as parents may face, and we will help your child build confidence to overcome the challenges.   In emergencies, we know what decisions to make and we will act quickly in your absence.  We will always act in what we consider to be the most beneficial for your child.

We consider ourselves an extension of your family whilst your child is in the UK, and hopefully also for many years to come.


 How to choose a guardianship package

The level of care that  families choose depends on many factors, including:

  • Student’s experience of the UK
  • Student’s age, level of independence and maturity
  • Parent’s level of English
  • Student’s understanding of English, and ability/willingness to speak it
We offer different levels of guardianship packages for international students:

  • Elite Guardianship
  • Classic Guardianship
  • Limited Guardianship (suitable for EU, HK, Macau students only)
  • First Response Guardianship (suitable for EU students only)

Elite Guardianship

This is our VIP package.

The Elite guardianship package is recommended for families looking for a ‘home-away-from-home’ care package, where Study Links become the extension of your own family.   Our close relationship with both your child and your family means we can deliver a level of care that is more personal and effective.

Elite guardianship offers you the very best care. We monitor your child’s academic and personal development closely and contact school staff regularly to check on their progress. We will build a relationship with your child, and instil self-confidence in them so they can face any challenges in life.  This consistent care enables you to reach your full academic and personal potential.

We recommend Elite guardianship for you if your child is new to the UK, if your child is nervous about studying in the UK, not yet confident with using their English, and/or may require extra attention.  Many parents choose Elite guardianship simply because they want the very best level of care for their child.
