London, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 October 2011
UK NARIC, the National Agency responsible for providing information and advice on vocational, academic and professional skills and qualifications from all over the world, has partnered with UK Work Study, a leader in aiding international students to study in the UK.
This partnership comes in the light of recent Government initiatives to place tighter controls on and greater scrutiny over students arriving into the UK and the courses that they study. Recent revelations about bogus courses and substandard student services have led to overseas students facing increased levels of bureaucracy and pressure to get every aspect of their application right. Students from overseas can reduce this bureaucracy by getting a Statement of Comparability from UK NARIC which clearly sets out the value of their qualification.
UK NARIC provides the only official source of qualification comparison information and advice on international education and help tens of thousands of individuals a year with their applications for work or study in the UK. This partnership will provide potential students with a better understanding of how their qualifications compare to UK levels.
UK Work Study supply a unique student starter pack. The ‘Study Pack’ provided includes a guide and application forms for opening a bank account before arrival, pre-paid cash card, free international money transfer, a UK telephone number, comprehensive guides to living and studying in the UK, National Insurance assistance and a number of other discounted items. UK Work Study also partner with companies in the areas of visa assistance and application, shipping, accommodation, house starter kits, insurance, money transfer and travel. All of these areas can be difficult for a foreign student to organise before arrival.
“We are conscious that moving to the UK involves many tasks, some of which can be very stressful” says Tim Buttress, Deputy Director, Policy and Communications at UK NARIC. “We are the only organisation that provides qualification comparison information for students and workers, but we want to assist in as many ways as possible, without detracting at all from our principle business. By partnering with UK Work Study we are confident that our customers receive extra assistance, from a company that itself offers a choice of items and suppliers.”
“Our aim is to help people move here with the minimum of stress” says Beverley Nash, Marketing Director at UK Work Study. “Our pack makes it easy for people to organise themselves in advance; banks and money are areas that many people worry about, and we can take care of those issues. We ensure that we work with a number of reputable companies for the supply of our items and services – as it is important to us that the customer has a choice of suppliers. UK NARIC has a superb reputation in their area, and we are delighted to be working with them.”
Customers will be able to purchase the UK Study Pack through the UK NARIC website. UK Work Study also partner with companies who offer services in all the key areas of moving to a foreign country.
