OVERSEAS STUDENT RECRUITMENT AND SERVICES

Fat-Divider-Line 

Heritage Education Consults is an international student recruitment agency based in United Kingdom. We represent some of United Kingdom’s most prestigious and most affordable universities and colleges. We work with different educational and cultural backgrounds. Education has been recognized as a platform for the exchange of cultural, intellectual and commercial benefits between two countries. In view of this, our service is designed to achieve dual benefit to the host and visiting countries.

Heritage Education Consults is fully aware that securing a place at a UK university and thereafter settling quickly, safely and comfortably into life in United Kingdom can be a difficult, time consuming and stressful activity for overseas students. In view of this, we have developed a comprehensive service for our clients.

Importantly, Heritage Education Consults will provide assistance to overseas students enabling them to select suitable courses at appropriate universities, taking full account of their needs, goals, qualifications, finances and career aspirations. We work with recruiters who speak the language, understands the cultures and who possesses the information necessary for a smooth transition for prospective students. 

We are aware that cultural differences, lack of information, language restrictions and unfamiliarity with formal UK processes are the primary reasons why overseas students often encounter difficulties and delays at each of the steps along the route from preparing and submitting an application for admission to a university or college, to arriving in United Kingdom and then settling down into student life. With this in mind Heritage Education Consults offers a comprehensive and enabling range of information, support and facilitation services for overseas students. These services cover all aspects of university or college applications, UK living and family life. Our student’s are referred to an immigration specialist who takes care of their immigration requirements, documentation and submission (Third party Service).

Services for the parents, guardians and sponsors of overseas students 

Parent, Guardian and Sponsor Concern

The majority of parental, guardian and sponsor concerns stem from the fact that the student is away from the watchful oversight of the parent or sponsor, this separation often making it difficult for the parent or sponsor to keep a close eye on the student’s progress and wellbeing. As a consequence, parents, guardians and sponsors often complain of being in the dark regarding their student(s), a situation sometimes exacerbated by students who may feel ashamed and hence unwilling to report less than ideal academic performance. There is, however, no doubt that the best chance of rectifying any substandard academic performance or wellbeing issue is to act as soon as the problem becomes apparent.

 

Academic progression monitoring and reporting

Concerns Associated with Academic Progression

Common parental or guardianship concerns associated with the academic progression of a student include:

  1. Concern that the student’s chances of academic success are not being maximised.
  2. Concern that the student may be struggling with academic matters because of language difficulties.
  3. Concern that if something was to start going wrong in the academic process, this information would not be conveyed to the parent, guardian or sponsor as quickly as possible.
  4. Concern that there is no-one located close to the student who can provide them with specialist impartial advice and support on academic matters.
  5. Pastoral care and oversight of student wellbeing
  6. Emergency contact and advice services

 

Summary of Services for Parents, Guardians and Sponsors

It is for the reasons outlined above that Heritage Education Consults offers services to parents, guardians and sponsors which are specifically designed to provide regularly updated reports of both the academic progress and the personal wellbeing of the student, in addition to acting as an advisory and emergency contact service.
