The GetSet Service

Our extensive professional counselling will get you ready, set, and off to your dream school, but we don't stop there. Your GetSet counsellor is with you throughout your studies. Our people are overseas educated professionals with extensive knowledge of living and studying abroad, and we are here to help. With GetSet, you'll get the right information the first time, every time.

We're all over Asia and on the ground in the UK

Our counsellors are here to help whether you're waking up in Taipei or Birmingham. We can run through the finer points with you in your own country and your own language, if that helps, while our people in the UK do any running around that's needed over there. We've got you covered.

Make use of our office resources

Sometimes all you need is a quiet space to read and to think. We have stacks of material on UK, US, Canadian Australian and New Zealand institutions. Use our computers to find information or to tidy up your scholarship application, then chat with our counsellors about your plans.

We will proofread your work

Here if you need it. GetSet will have a native speaker check your appliaction supporting documents and we will let you know if you need to change anything.

We'll help you prepare your application

We'll supply the forms, tell you what you'll need and how to get it together. We will help you out with study plans, resumes and references and we will check that you're all set before we send your applications in.

Visa application service

We will guide you through the ins and outs of your visa application. GetSet will save you the frustrations and delays of repeated visits to the visa office. Like all of our services, we won't ask you for any money.

Need a place to stay?

Deciding where to stay can be a bit tricky with different institutions offering a variety of accommodation, some of it at discounted rates. Our experienced counselors will talk you through the various accommodation jargon and help you to find a place that suits.

Tracking your applications

GetSet will track your applications over in the UK and we will keep you updated on their progress.

We'll get you in front of university representatives, right in your own country

GetSet arranges regular tours that make people from universities all over the world available to you in your home country. This provides you with an excellent opportunity to meet face to face with people might one day maybe teaching you.

Pre-departure briefings

We will give you all you need to know about the country where you will be living and learning, whether you are bound for the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or even to study English in the Philippines.

Ask us a question about studying overseas.

Need financial help?

Our scholarship library and scholarship-coaching workshops have helped countless people just like you to find financial support for their study plans. There's money out there if you know how to get it; we do.

GetSet Alumni Club

Our alumni club is a terrific way for students to stay in touch once they leave the United Kingdom.
