Scholarships to study at top universities in the UK

Juliana Ciszak

A agencia LP, desde que contatei eles através da indicação do site da UAL, foi sempre muito atenciosa sobre as minhas perguntas e dúvidas sobre o programa de cursos das universidades. A empresa realmente tem interesse em ajudar os alunos a ingressar nos cursos, dando conselhos e direcionando para os caminhos que melhor se encaixam em cada perfil. Além disso, se mostraram muito presentes enquanto eu estava em Londres nas universidades e estava com dificuldades em outros assuntos, como acomodação e saúde
