UK Guardianship Service

We provide guardianship for students planning to study in the UK aged from 11 to 18, for short and long term and whether boarding or with a host family. Apart from the standard logistical arrangements to cover holiday periods, we are available 24/7 for students and parents in Chinese or English language. As guardians, we act on behalf of parents who are unfamiliar with British culture, educational systems and English language. This will ensure the student receives the best possible support in order to settle in quickly.
