UK China Student Union (UCSU)

 

UCSU provides educatonal support and guardianship services to international students in the UK. 

When children come to study in the United Kingdom and their parents are not around, the education guardians will perform parents’ duty on behalf of them. In a country where language is non-mother-tongue, without understanding of the native educational system, living habits and the ways of doing things, which not only bring inconvenience to students’ study and life, also affect their psychological development. In this circumstance, the education guardians play an extremely important role. Education guardians provide 24-hour emergency contact and take appropriate measures. Besides, the education guardians will also help children to deal with the problems they are facing. When necessary, the education guardians will visit students and communicate with schools instead of parents.

In the United Kingdom, all the well-known boarding schools require international students to have a British guardian when they stay in the United Kingdom for study. Guardian, who is the representative of child’s parents in the United Kingdom, provides care and assistance to child and performs the guardianship on behalf of the child’s parents. In short, guardian plays a role of a bridge between children, parents and schools.

 

Our advantages

Our advantages are that we can provide a good communication among parents, schools and children, coupled with patience and meticulous service, so that parents could rely on us completely. Most of our team members are excellent teachers with many year of experience in education from the north and south of China; additional, we all have studied in the United Kingdom and obtained the Master’s Degree; these backgrounds enrich our life and education experience and improve our bilingual ability in both China and the United Kingdom.

 

Most students at independent schools will live with the home-stay families during holidays. During this time, the home-stay families will take care of their daily life.

 

Most of the families we arranged for students are the native British who verified by

The British Criminal Records Bureau, as well as the Local Child Protection Association. Before arrangement of a family for student, we will check and understand the specific information of the family by ourselves. After the arrival of a child, we will keep close contact with the child and the family; and will visit and check the family regularly.
