What our students have to say about SI-UK

I utilized the services of SI-UK in Chennai which proved invaluable for me. They provided great assistance throughout my application process, guiding me from evaluating my choices to selecting the university that best matched my profile.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
