What our Students Say

“I had the best experience with UKEC. I didn’t go back to Malaysia to renew my visa and UKEC was there to guide and help me through the visa process. I would definitely recommend students to use UKEC’s services. As a previous ambassador for UKEC, I genuinely believe in the quality of service provided.”

“Aberystwyth University gave me unforgettable memories, friends for the rest of my life, and a wonderful start to my professional life. The professors showed genuine interest in their students’ futures and passion for their subjects in both the departments I belonged to. The barbecue, the beaches and the nature, all make Aber a perfect place to study.”
