You've sorted your visa and your offer is in your hand... how exciting! But what do you know about your destination? We understand that the change from Bruneian culture to a new one can come as a shock, which is why we offer all our students information sessions on their university, the country and even culture shock.
pErsonal statement review
All institutions in the United Kingdom require a personal statement from potential students as an insight into why they want to apply; many colleges and universities in other countries may also require essays or statements for similar reasons. Our education consultants are fully equipped to review your personal statement and offer constructive feedback, whilst ensuring that the personal statement does not lose its original message.
Some courses and institutions may require applicants to pass certain tests before offering them a place; most visa applications also require medical tests to be passed. Findlay will make the necessary arrangements so that you can take these tests. For more information on what tests your course may require, please contact us.
Applying for a visa can feel a little bit overwhelming with the amount of information that's needed. Findlay is experienced in helping students through the process, ensuring you have all the necessary documents for a successful application.
Once you've graduated from university and are ready to join the workforce, we will provide in-house CV and job interview workshops free of charge to increase your chances of securing your first employment. Learn more about our workshops and training here.

It has been two years now since graduating from my course in Childhood, Youth and Community Studies (CYCS) at the University of Winchester and when I look back, I have so many happy memories of the city, the campus , the learning and the wonderful people. I fondly remember my lecturers who were instrumental in my development as a student. They were well versed in the theoretical aspects of their field but what helped me best was their vast experience which they would share in lectures and tutorials. This practical information helped me connect theories to real life. I was learning about how theories changed lives!
Learning never felt like a competition but instead training and preparing myself to help people in the society. The teaching staff were also very flexible and interested to hear about my thoughts and experiences as an international student. They never hindered nor dismissed the unique topics that I wanted to explore like the Muslim community or spirituality in early childhood. The assessments varied from the standard essay, reports and written examinations to role playing real life occupations and making up activities for children with SEN.
The University of Winchester had the right environment and supportive people conducive to my growth as an individual. They have a prayer room for Muslim students in the main building and even had a nurse on campus who I could see when I felt ill. High Street is just a few minutes away from campus and the whole city is beautiful to just walk around for inspiration if ever one has writer's block or to meet up with friends.
"I came to know about Findlay through Dinah whom I knew from her JIS days. After the A level results came out, my son had not been able to retain any university offer and my first instinct was to seek assistance from an education consultant. Findlay offers assistance for university, which my son was keen to go to. We went to Findlay with so much hopes that they could help and we were not disappointed.
We were received with such compassion and caring. The staff was so warm and friendly and they made my son felt so much better. Findlay was so helpful taking us through every step of the way, and time was not a problem to them. They worked through the night and every question got an immediate response. They sent you information as soon as they got them and there were calls, emails and reassurance especially from that wonderful lady, Sunita Martin.
Visa application went smoothly without any hitch. They were very thorough with everything even down to list of items to take along to the UK, list of important documents and would you believe it they even supplied my son with a UK landing card. We really were in very good hands with Findlay not forgetting the hot tea and friendly chats, which made it, like being with a family. They really go out of their way to make you comfortable and to ensure an offer from the university is secured.
What more can I say Findlay, except a big thank you from the bottom of my heart to Sunita, Dinah, Kim, Alyaa and Fatimah for such excellent services and caring attitude... you work with your heart.
With much appreciation and thank you,
