GetSet's face-to-face counselling will help you decide on a university that best meets your requirements for PhD research. We can also work with you once your offers are back from the universities. GetSet's counsellors have all lived and studied overseas. Our professional counsellors dispense well-informed, independent advice with your interests in mind and our feedback from students is testimony to this. PhD application requirements vary from country to country and also from university to university so contact GetSet to find out exactly what you need to prepare.
- Free English level testing.
- If necessary, we will get you enrolled onto a presessional English language course.
- Paperwork - yuck! Relax, we'll do it for you. Administration forms are time-consuming and can be confusing, especially when they're not written in your native language. GetSet's ever-thoughtful staff will handle this chore for you. Leave them with us or, if you have time, sit down and we'll go through it with you.
- Peruse our extensive library. We have brochures, pamphlets, prospectuses and course books. We have material on all research degrees in the UK - to check them out, come on in.
