UK Guardianship

UK Guardianship

Ensuring the well-being of children studying abroad is a matter of paramount importance for parents. In the UK, the Visas and Immigration (UKVI), responsible for student visas, and most UK schools and education institutions mandate that students whose families reside overseas must have a guardian based in the UK to act on their behalf during term time and school breaks.


Attentus is a accredited guardianship service. Our dedicated team offers round-the-clock support, seven days a week to students and parents. Our ultimate goal is to provide comprehensive support to our students, ensuring they achieve the best academic results while under our care and feel secure and nurtured throughout their stay in the UK.
