Educational Guardian for your Child

Children and young people who come alone to study in the UK from abroad are required to have an Educational Guardian, who will take on the responsibilities on behalf of the parents, in applying for a school place (if required), liaising with the school and finding a suitable host family where needed.

Once your child arrives in the UK and throughout their time here, Alpha Guardians, the education guardian deals with any day-to day matters  and any assistance they may need.  Your child can turn to Alpha Guardians for help and advice including any medical, financial or travel needs, ensuring your child has a safe and enjoyable time whilst studying in the UK.


Alpha Guardians is accredited by AEGIS, the Association for the Education and the Guardianship of International students.
