“To Smart Options Educational Services,

Please accept my sincere thanks for all the help and guidance you provided me in deciding my course of academic study and my career direction to a large extent.
Every consultation was professional and conducted with care and personal interest, due to your longterm experience with students.
Oxford Brookes University was an excellent choice as far as location, accommodation, campus life and study are concerned and the academic personell is very helpful with the students. I am very happy here!
I would introduce other students to be serviced by Smart Options, with great pleasure!

In 2003, I was granted an unconditional offer from Oxford Brookes University to study Computing Science. This was facilitated by Marlene - one of the most remarkable minds of her generation, working towards educating this generation and the next.

I would like to thank her and her (friendly and approachable) colleagues at S.M.A.R.T Options Educational Services for all the assistance and excellent guidance they provided me. They demonstrated professional conduct, and at the same time I always felt comfortable and at ease in their company

I would, therefore, wholeheartedly recommend them to prospective students planning to go to the UK.

Studying abroad is a decision of the utmost importance which shapes future employment prospects and long-term career achievement. In today’s competitive educational environment, it is imperative that adequate and of the highest quality educational counselling is provided to students. With many years of dynamic presence in Cyprus, S.M.A.R.T Options Educational Services is a highly professional educational services body, which among other services provides prospective students with valuable and objective guidance on different issues pertaining to their studies abroad. Being a student myself, I have had the opportunity to be advised in several occasions by S.M.A.R.T Options Educational Services and in particular by Mrs. Marlene Philippou. Selecting the appropriate university among a plethora of UK universities was a challenge I faced prior to commencing my studies abroad. I was hence provided with substantial guidance on the options I had, as well as the university requirements and procedures required from the application stage until my admittance to the university I had chosen. Readily available and willing to provide feedback on any issues that arose, such as providing regular updates on the status of the applications as well as diligent preparation of supporting documentation, constitute some of the qualitative characteristics of the services I was provided.It is with great confidence that I recommend S.M.A.R.T Options Educational Services to future students, as my personal experience has demonstrated that the knowledge, professional conduct, and long-term experience of their educational services, will enable any applicant to make the right decisions for the accomplishment of future academic and later professional aspirations.
