Life outside of studying

Posted by Josephine Gaupholm on Apr 23, 2018 12:00:00 PM


The reason you are coming to the UK might be to study, however, the experience is so much more than just school. It’s a chance to experience a new culture, meet people from around the world, and just have a really great time! Although you will spend a lot of time on your school work (duh, you kinda want to pass!) there will still be plenty of time to get out there and have some fun. Below I highlight the main extracurriculars you must try while across the pond.

London Eats

Posted by Hayley Fortini on Apr 19, 2018 12:00:00 PM

When I first found out I was moving to London I was excited about all the historic sights I was going to see and the potential to travel around Europe so easily.

Maintaining a Vegan or Vegetarian Diet in the UK

Posted by Hailey Mason on Apr 16, 2018 12:00:00 PM

When I first moved to Scotland, I was nervous about my options as a vegetarian. I was accustomed to the meat substitutes and vegetarian-friendly menus that cluttered every grocery store and restaurant in Canada. Toronto has a thriving vegan and vegetarian community, with health foods and meat/dairy alternatives gaining popularity every day. After studying in England for a semester in 2016, I knew my choices would be more limited in the UK. It’s far from impossible to maintain a meat-free diet here, but you won’t find a Whole Foods Market or a vegan café on every corner.

How To Make The Most Of Your Advisor During Your Visa Application

Posted by Scott Elliott on Apr 5, 2018 1:25:05 PM

Applying for your Tier 4 Student Visa can be a confusing and arduous task, and it isn’t always clear what information you need to include, and which documents you need to send in. Couple that with the fact that your application can be rejected based on an ill-prepared application, wasting both your time and money, and you’ll soon realize how stressful this process is. With the help of your advisor, however, it should be a smooth and straightforward process. We have years of experience with helping students apply for their student visas, and we’ve all gone through the process ourselves as well!

"Oh So British" Charity Shops, Afternoon Tea & Eclectic Shopping Markets

Posted by Debra Register, ATP Student Ambassador on Apr 3, 2018 3:00:00 PM

Many wonderful things about quintessential English culture compelled me to study there: The fabulous accent, the double decker buses, the fish and chips but there is so much I happily discovered that I think of as “Oh so British” that made my year positively, well, brilliant (my quintessentially British new favorite word)!
