Why Go Overseas?

The late Terry Pratchett's quote from his book A Hat Full of Sky is very relevant. He mentions,

"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving."

Most of our interns have a life changing experience that gives them a new perspective on life and builds their self confidence, soft and hard skill sets and gives them the ability to manage themselves, become more culturally aware; problem solve and improve their language abilities. They become more mature and clearer about their future career paths.

Page 2 of our web site has a more information on this.

To make the most of your experience it is important that you are hard-working; have a positive attitude, genuine nature; make friends; flexible to change and adapt to a new country's customs, language, laws, food, weather and people. Those that do these things will have an excellent time travelling and with their overseas exchange programme.

Why us? - Adding Value and Building Trust.

  1. Established and Stable - we have been established for over 10 years as UK company and have over 20 years experience in education. We have proper offices and staff in an accessible location.

  2. No Middlemen and Agents - we spend time to cultivate and work directly with Colleges and Universities so exchanges and mobility projects complement academic studies and are an assessed integrated component of the course.

  3. Direct Local Liaison - We also have a direct local liaison team in different countries to support students and colleges. This improves collaboration and communication.

  4. Personal Service and Pastoral Care - we counsel you from start about the options that match realistic and genuine training needs and support you throughout your travel and training. We monitor your progress and provide on going guidance especially pastoral care. You are therefore seen as an individual.

  5. Clear Terms and Conditions and Documentary Requirements - we give you clear information including the processes, procedures, evidence needed and clear refund policies. If in doubt we can be reached. We also clarify what we can do and what we cannot.
    (Note local overseas partners may have separate terms based on specific country conditions and law)

  6. Structured Training Plan and Learning within a Corporate setting - We work directly with Industry to ensure training is up to date and relevant for the 21st Century.

  7. Official Government Authorised Exchange Programmes - We follow the conditions set by each Government for Cultural Exchanges and Mobility programmes and work directly with the Sponsors. We also follow industry guidance on youth exchanges.

  8. Documentary Exemptions - We are often able to obtain documentary exemptions based on the trust we have built up with different organisations. Also move applications forward faster because of our links. This is based on a case by case basis.

  9. Direct Government support - we work with official bodies like Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), British Council and British Embassies to assist the UK Government aims for: increasing exports overseas from SMEs; increasing cross cultural bilateral youth Exchanges; Youth Mobility projects; Vocational Training and Employability skills.

On Monday 25 August 2014 the former UK Deputy Prime Minister the Right Honourable Nick Clegg made a speech at the GREAT Business Conference in New Delhi in which he said:

"As India works to expand its own education sector, both academically and vocationally, we want to boost those ties - with more student exchanges, joint research projects and learning partnerships. Today, UK-based education company, Global Education Management Ltd for instance signed a valuable new agreement with Amity University to provide vocational training."
