Amongst the fortunate students who are blowing the trumpet of success are Daldeep Kaur has just started on the prestigious 11-month BBC Journalism Training Scheme while former co-editor of the Sports Gazette, Matt Horsman has been taken a full-time job in rugby production at BT Sport.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
