UKAcademia: Where It All Began

UKacademia is proud to be a leading expert in the field of British boarding school education, and our roots take us back to 2012. We initially started by supporting international families who wanted to find a way to get the best school placement for their child without having to spend hours searching through different boarding school prospectuses.

As qualified teachers, we felt suitably placed to do this work and wanted to utilise our experience in British schools to help families outside of the UK understand their options; and so UKacademia was born. The interest in our educational solution was overwhelming, and we have loved the journey we have been on to get us to where we are today. UKacademia is not just a job to us; it’s a family that grows with every new student that we support.

Where We Are Now

To date, we have built a business that offers a unique perspective into the British boarding school system, and with over 20 boarding school partners, we are ready and able to find the right placement for your child. We are inspired on a daily basis by the success stories of students that we have previously helped and use this inspiration to guide us when helping new students to achieve their dreams.

Our daily work involves getting to know prospective students, discussing British boarding school scholarships with potential partners and keeping families up to date on what our partner schools have to offer. We love the variety in our day to day work but also feel honoured knowing that we are supporting international students to achieve their full potential in the outstanding boarding schools that Britain has to offer.

Why We Want to Help You

We want to help you because we know how hard it can be to find the right school placement for your child. You may dream of them attending an establishment like Harrow School or Eton College but not know what to look for when it comes to finding the right placement; that is what we are here for. We want to help you so that your child can enjoy the education they deserve without having to try multiple schools to get it.

We are determined to support parents through the process of selecting the right boarding school and have taken many years to grow our partner school offerings. Our team fully vets all our partner schools, and we are well versed in understanding what they have to offer. Not only can we help you to choose the right placement, but we can also help you understand the processes and payments that need to be made so that you are not left confused and stressed.

What We Do

Our mission is to break through the confusing and contradictory messages that are sent to prospective families when trying to learn about applying to boarding schools. To do that, we have designed a process that is easy to use and aims to provide you with a range of information so that you can make an informed choice.

Some of the services you can look forward to using include:

  • Virtual recruitment programmes that can be joined from the comfort of your own home.
  • International offices in our recruitment countries so that we can offer genuine diversity to the British boarding school market.
  • Expert advice from highly qualified and experienced education specialists.
  • Guardianship services so that you can be confident that your child’s wellbeing is as important to us as it is to you.
  • Options for gifted students so that they can become the success that they deserve to be.

Who We Help

When it comes to helping international families, we work across 15 different countries and support anyone that wants to send their child or children to a British boarding school. Many families need to find placements that offer scholarship entry, and we can signpost you to these placements should you need us to. We feel strongly about the right of all children to get a quality education regardless of their background or family finances.

When you decide to move forward with your application, you will go through a five-stage process to help you get to the right options:

  • First, we use a video conference call to start our student profile and will ask you about your child’s current academic abilities, goals, and specific subjects that they want to pursue. We will also ask for a copy of their passport, all their academic reports and any references or certificates that will help us to assess their ability.
  • Next, we will start to match the information we have received to specific boarding schools that will be able to help your child through their academic journey. We take your child’s aspirations into account and the affordability of the school against your budget as well as the criteria the school has for new applicants.
  • Once you have a shortlist of schools to apply to, we will work with you to write and submit the application and support you to organise interviews. We will also be your representative in the UK when it comes to making contact with the school.
  • With a place organised, we will support you to arrange the right visa for your child to enter the country and begin to study.
  • Finally, on arrival, we will meet your child and organise transfers to the school as well as being on hand to provide advice and arrange guardianship.

How We Do It

Finding quality education is essential, and we take pride in putting this goal before anything else. That means that we do not charge a consultation fee when you choose to contact us, and we do not try to push you into selecting from one or two schools that pay us to help them.

Instead, we aim to continue developing new and exciting partnerships with the best boarding schools that the UK has to offer and then, in turn, sharing the details of these fantastic schools with you so that you have a wide and varied choice. No child learns when they are unhappy, so we work tirelessly to ensure that the placement you select is right for everyone involved.
