School Testimonials

Slide 1

“Of all the obstacles associated with applying to university, gaining home status can be the most stressful and nuanced. It is for this reason that we invite UK Study Options to give a presentation at Dubai College on an annual basis, which is always comprehensive and immensely well-received. Geraldine and Kate have their finger on the pulse with the ever-changing landscape of higher education and they draw on a wealth of experience and contacts within the industry. I know that so many families in our community have benefitted from their expertise and they are our definitive go-to associates with all matters relating to fee status.”

“A huge thanks to Kate for her expert guidance for our students, parents and staff, through what is ultimately a changing landscape in light of Brexit and the pandemic. Kate and Geraldine are both experts who are always up-to-date with the latest guidelines and present the information in a way that is extremely informative, yet easy to digest. They have supported Kings’ School Al Barsha for several years now as experts on Home fee status and I look forward to working with them for years to come.”

“UK Study Options give a presentation every year on UK University Fee Status at Jumeirah College, Dubai. I invite them to speak to parents as they are experts on the topic and the only people qualified to offer support on this in the region.  It is always a very informative and enlightening talk and they give invaluable advice on fee status which can help save families thousands. There is a real need for this kind of support so we are always happy to have them attend our events such as the Higher Education Evening last month. We always get great feedback from the parents as it’s really beneficial to them and students who get advice on their Home fee status eligibility.”
