-Christos Andreou, from Mytilini, Greece

Telephone: +30 6946468406, Email: andreouchristos@gmail.com

“I was accepted at Brunel for MEM Masters of Engineering Management. I have plans on doing a PhD in EngD- Automation of CAM – push-button machining – School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, in the UK.”

-Sanda Rok, English Literature with Creative Writing (Q3W8) at the University of East Anglia (E14)

“When the decision was made to go and study in the UK, I knew exactly which University I wanted to go to and what to study. Only one thing did not let me sleep for months – “How will I pay for this expensive tuition?”  Just as I was about to give up on the whole idea, I learned about Anglia Foundation (www.studiesinuk.net) which a friend of mine recommended to me. A year prior to my entry my friend was admitted into one of the best London Universities with their help. At first, I did not know whether to believe their almost over-optimistic promises. It all seemed almost too good to be true. However, I trusted them, mainly because of the recommendations I was given which said only good things about the whole process, and I never doubted them again. The whole process was done with precision and professionally. I am really happy that back then I had confided in them. My relationship was always based on these standards especially when I had to face a particular obstacle, a fault made by the bureaucratic process. The fault made was going to shatter my hopes and dreams of ever studying abroad, but the team at Anglia Foundation went to considerable efforts not to let such things happen, even well above of the obligations of the contract. Thus I was provided not only of the studies in England I wished for, but acceptance from the exact University that I had chosen in the first place, even though it seemed that I would need to settle for lesser offer. I was positively surprised with their commitment and dedication. I can recommend them with all my heart as an organisation worthy of trust. I would especially like to stress the dedication and conscientiousness of Mr. Madellis, who took care of my application. Even to this day, as I am completing my first year, they still check up on me to see that everything is going fine and we continue to have a good and friendly relationship. Anyone who would like to learn more about my experience with Anglia Foundation is invited to contact me via Brigita (contact her on langins2@otenet.gr and she will forward you my contact details).”

I love the lifestyle at Brighton and the fairs which often take place there. It has a strong Engineering Department. Brighton is a tourist area near the sea, with many hotels.
