UK Placement

Bright World Education Ltd is an education consultant specialising in helping international students find places at UK.  We work with over 300 UK boarding schools, colleges and UK universities. Our Placement service has been in operation since Bright World begun in 2000 and the years our team of education specialists has helped hundreds of international students join the British education system and go onto top UK universities to complete their education. We are dedicated to helping international students find places at UK schools, colleges and universities.

Director of Admissions, Sheena Trist (pictured above left) and Admissions Manager, Carol Gill (pictured above right) have worked with Bright World and these schools and colleges for over 10 years each, so have a tremendous knowledge of the schools, the education system and most importantly how international students can make the transition between their education system overseas and ours in the UK. We have excellent contacts with schools and understand the needs of international students very well. Schools fill up quite quickly during the academic year and we keep a careful note of the places still available week by week.

How to apply?

Send us the student’s name, date of birth and latest school reports with any further requirements by email if a direct enuiry, or via Blink for Agents if you are an agent applying on behalf of a student. Once we have this information, we will suggest schools that still have places in the correct year group for you. We will then guide you throughout the admissions process until your place is confirmed. 

The British Education system is renowned worldwide for its high academic standards. A levels and IB are offered in the UK as the main qualification to gain entry to a British or indeed any university system globally.

Differences in school systems and insufficient level of English often means that some students don’t fit exactly with the traditional system. In this case we can recommend courses with flexible start dates and schools offering English language support. The Bright World Admissions team will match your academic history, level and age group with the right course. The standard academic year begins in September and is made up of three terms.

Why is Bright World’s Placement service the best?

The simple answer to this is because of the hard work and dedication of our staff and the knowledge they possess.

Sheena Trist, our Director of Admissions, has over 10 years of placement experience, and in this time has collected a vast amount of knowledge about boarding schools and Universities. She has built excellent relationships with many of the School Registrars during numerous visits to various schools and universities, and can often advise parents and students about specific courses and facilities relevant to their child’s needs.


Sheena also attends many Education Fairs and similar events both in the UK and overseas, where she is available to give free placement advice. To find out which events Sheena will be at in 2015, please contact us.

"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
