Guardianship

If your children are at a school, whether day or boarding, knowing that they can be cared for during school breaks by a responsible guardian is of crucial importance for all parents. In addition, The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) (responsible for student visas) and many UK schools require that all students, whose families live overseas, have a legal guardian residing in the UK to act for them when the school is closed and at other times, such as illness or when there is a need for disciplinary action.

APUK’s Guardianship team has many years of experience in student guardianship in the UK, providing a 24 hours a day, seven days a week service that offers a high level of support to parents, students and schools. We are an accredited member of AEGIS and we source the highest quality host families for our students to stay with over exeat weekends and half terms. As well as parents, schools are also keen to have their international students cared for by an attentive and professional guardian, as it can enhance the students’ experience of learning in the UK.

Our aim is to provide all the support we can to ensure students obtain the best academic results in our care and to provide them with a secure and caring environment during their stay in the UK.
