increase the mobility of UK students

Degrees Ahead is the inspirational company making the dream of studying overseas a reality. From accredited degrees in Accounting in Thailand to Environmental Studies in New Zealand to Economics in Denmark, they cater for all aspects of the process from choosing and applying to a university, to organising visas, accommodation and funding.

Set up in 2007 by Joanna Turner and Andrew Thick, the Degrees Ahead team between them have over 30 years experience in the field of international university education. Their Mission Statement is simple: increase the mobility of UK students.

At a time of international economic downturn, for many people there has never been a better time to gain a qualification and life experience. An undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Australia, Asia, Canada, Europe and New Zealand will offer exactly that. Many companies look for graduates who can prove they have something different to offer. The skills gained by studying abroad will certainly make those graduates stand out.

After a free consultation, Degrees Ahead offers free application management as well as free advice and placement help for prospective students. Through its network of international universities, it ensures an excellent standard of student support service not only from Degrees Ahead itself but also from the university.

Especially in light of increase in UK university fees, studying abroad can end up being a significantly cheaper option. For example, in Holland a student may become eligible for a grant towards tuition when they become a part-time worker during their studies. Whilst each student sets their own level of expenditure and lifestyle expectations, Degrees Ahead will advise on which course to undertake. Whether your goals are academic or you are looking at more targeted courses to take you into the right job, Degrees Ahead has the professional expertise to help students make the right choice.

The status of Degrees Ahead as official representative for many international universities across Australia, Europe and Asia informs their expertise and provides them with the inside track on opportunities as they occur. This connection also ensures that the right students are matched to the right universities for their individual goals.
Degrees Ahead and the Graduate Pathways Survey come to the same conclusion: study abroad and get ahead!
