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 offer Personal Placement services into quality UK boarding schools and UK universities (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 package is designed to fulfil these needs and provide peace of mind to parents who are confident that their child is being well looked after.
Professional Qualified Mandarin Teachers and Chinese Partner Students make our Chinese Study Tour a life long experience for many who have attended. The OPDS Chinese Study Tour is based in Beijing and has a two week core programme, which you can extend to three weeks. It caters for three levels of Chinese (elementary, intermediate and advanced), to enable students of similar abilities to be grouped together for teaching purposes.
