A university student sitting an exam

Not everyone can travel abroad to pursue their ambition of a degree from a UK university. 

So we're here to help you earn that highly respected qualification, from Britain’s leading universities, without leaving the country.  

We make sure you have a simple and straightforward experience, from the moment you register for the university exam to the day you get your results. 

We’ll look after the whole process, from providing the exam venue and professionally trained supervisors to having your exams processed by the exam board. 

All you need to do is prepare for your exam and turn up on exam day.
