UK2Learn: an exciting and challenging experience for international students About UK2Learn
UK2Learn provides a wide range of educational services for international students from programmes and internships to guardianships and placements.
HRH Prince Michael of Kent is patron of the Oxford Quality programme, provided in partnership by RELOD and UK2Learn, which aims to help educational institutions in Russia provide better quality education in English.
We offer an invaluable opportunity for international students to explore the academic and cultural life of students in the UK whilst studying in a safe and secure environment.
In 2009 UK2Learn had the great honour of welcoming HRH to the programme celebrations where he enjoyed meeting students, teachers and parents. HRH fully supports the aims and objectives of the programmes.

Students will be teamed with an ‘English friend’ and will be joining in lessons and activities exactly as the English students do.
UK2Learn is excellent value for money.
Every year many international students, teachers, and parents join us, and the UK2Learn team looks forward to welcoming you too!

Guardianship It is a legal requirement that all students whose parents are living outside the UK be assigned a guardian. UK2Learn has over 15 years experience of caring for students from all over the world. UK2Learn’s guardianship experience is unique as Suzie Mackie personally oversees the service and assumes full responsibility. Suzie also takes great pride in knowing each of her students personally, which ensures that all students are in safe, professional, and above all, caring hands.
I feel totally comfortable when my children are in the care of Suzie Mackie; it is their second home!
