UKEAS insists on offering professional, impartial, comprehensive and friendly advice to all students and continuously strives to improve the services we offer to both students and partner institutions, which can best be summed up in our mission statement below:

Mission Statement

UKEAS are committed to providing our students with a world-class service to help them prepare for study in the UK.

UKEAS are dedicated to helping our students reach their educational objectives and to advancing their careers upon their return to their home country.

We look forward to building friendships during the application process, while you are a student in the UK and upon your return to your home country.

We firmly believe that students are happier, more settled and more successful when they are studying at the most appropriate institution for them and have been fully counseled throughout the applications procedure. UKEAS counselling is impartial and comprehensive covering all aspects of the application and, once the student has accepted an offer, accommodation, food, weather and the idiosyncrasies of student life in the UK from the perspective of a international student.
We welcome you to our offices to join the UKEAS Community.
