What our students say

Every year, SI-UK North America places hundreds of international Law students into UK universities. Our services ensure these students have the best possible chance of entering their chosen institution. Below is just one example:



I went to SI-UK two weeks before the deadline having done zero research on universities or what programs were available. SI-UK sat down with me and my father and told me about the application process; what they were going to do to help me, and after some research, provided me with about ten potential universities. They also helped me with my personal statement and through that, SI-UK instilled me with confidence and sure enough helped me select the most appropriate university for me.
