“Barclay Educational is really helpful and takes the pressure off applying to schools in the United Kingdom. I couldn’t have done it without them and would recommend anyone thinking of applying to the UK to ask them for their expertise.”

– Alison, Master’s of Fine Art, Scotland

SOAS was one of the greatest experiences I could have imagined. The international atmosphere and learning environment, on top of being situated in London made for an incredible year.  The program itself (MSc Development Studies) was holistic, critical and engaging.

I could not thank you enough for facilitating the whole process and transition!
