UK School Placement and Guardianship Services

Formed in 1996, Overseas Personal Development Services specialise in the field of educational consultancy. We have an excellent understanding of the available products and services which can satisfy a wide range of needs for our international students.

British education is highly regarded by an increasing number of overseas students who wish to study abroad. They may study for a Master degree, Undergraduate degree, Foundation programme, 'A' level or GCSE programme. The International Baccalaureate is also becoming increasingly popular. Younger students are now benefiting from courses in Preparatory school. We specialise in offering Personal Placement services into quality UK boarding schools (with suitable English language top up courses, where necessary), taking such factors as entry requirements, cost and location into account. The key factor is the suitability of the institution for the student.

Our comprehensive, caring UK Guardianship Service is well received by boarding school staff, parents and, of course, the students themselves. As educational guardians, we are responsible for ensuring the safety and welfare of the student at all times. Our student guardianship packages are designed to fulfil these needs and provide peace of mind to parents who are confident that their child is being well looked after.



OPDS is a wholly accredited member of Aegis, the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students.  As such, we offer the highest levels of care including well documented procedures and detailed record keeping.
