Meet with our Admissions counsellors

Our admissions counsellors will discuss all the available options, get to know the students’ interests and goals and advise on the best schools for the student

Helping choose the right school
At Gateway we work with the best and strongest global network of admissions counsellors. Our local agents are able to advise on the entire process from which schools to select, through the application process, to acceptance of offers.

By providing advice and offering a range of services, our global agents can assist from day one, ensuring students and their families are making the right choices to guide the student to success. Our Admissions Coordinators in each Gateway office will help agents and students navigate the complex admissions process by addressing any questions, collecting documentation and helping with requirements that may vary for each school that we partner with.

STEP 6

Connect with Guardian

Student and family is then introduced to their dedicated guardian who will be a mentor, guide, companion and friend and will look after the student’s welfare and academic progress during their stay in their chosen country

A Gateway Companion
Choosing to study abroad is a very important and life changing decision and here at Gateway we understand the anxieties of both the student and parents on making this decision. That is why we provide a full guardianship service, meaning that each student is appointed with a dedicated Guardian.
Gateway Guardianship provides peace of mind for both students and parents and as a company accredited by AEGIS (Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) and CSIET (Council on Standards for International Educational Travel) our processes and services are inspected and verified so that parents and students can be sure that we act in the best interests of each child.
At Gateway, our role is to provide multi-layered support for all students as they embark on an exciting educational, cultural and life journey.
The Gateway Guardianship Service Promise covers every aspect of the students’ welfare and includes but is not limited to:

  • Assistance with travel arrangements
    • Regular communication with parents
    • Representing the students’ academic interests
    • Attending parents’ evenings
    • 24/7 emergency response

STEP 7

Homestay

Placement within a host family will be undertaken. Our accommodation officers conduct home visits, security checks to ensure that each host family meets the criteria to join Gateway

Traditionally, international students would stay on-campus at the school which can be lonely and challenging.

At Gateway, we provide something special… and that is the chance to fully immerse oneself in the chosen country’s culture and stay with a host family.
Having their own room, place to study and being part of the host family creates a much more engaging and enjoyable experience and provides a fully rounded environment for students. Our accommodation officers conduct in-person interviews, home inspections and initiate background checks for safety. They become very familiar with each of our host families and because of this special relationship, they are able to match the student to the host family and provide support to both the host family and student at all times.
