University Counselling and Advice Service

SGI’s academic team is very experienced at helping students find the course and university that is right for them. Throughout the course we provide regular individual counselling sessions, advising on the courses and Universities most suitable for the student, and assisting in the completion and processing of University applications.

Developing the skills you need

The Foundation Course at St George International has a strong emphasis on developing the skills students need to successfully complete their British University studies. British Universities place a great deal of emphasis on self-study and written assignment. We are aware that these areas of University study may be unfamiliar to overseas students and so we ensure that they are addressed during the Foundation Course.
