Boris Goete has been professionally involved in motorsports since the age of 13, balancing an international sports career with studies at a boarding school in England. Being German and dividing his time between England, Monaco, and the UAE, Boris lacked the time for in-depth studies. Complicating matters, his final school years coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic, which meant he spent a lot of time in the UAE to continue his training and competitions. After taking the A-levels and receiving grades A, B, and C in French, Spanish, and Business, he decided to postpone university admission to focus on his international sports career.
This year, having received a job offer from a top UK supercar company, Boris decided to return to England and, at the same time, apply for university. For this, he turned to the UK Study Centre for assistance. He was interested in sports management programs, but due to the lack of time to manage documentation and liaise with universities, he decided to trust professionals. The most prestigious programs at the University of Bath and Loughborough required candidates to have scores no less than AAB, along with outstanding sports achievements.
After a thorough preparation of documents and extensive negotiations with universities, which the UKSC specialists undertook, Boris was accepted into the University of Bath. We also managed to confirm his status as a British student, allowing him a discounted tuition fee. Despite his EU settled status, the prolonged absences from England during the pandemic could have assigned him an international student status, which would have doubled his tuition fee. Additionally, when the question of accommodation in Bath arose, we helped Boris to book the university's most popular student residence.
Boris and his family were very satisfied with both the collaboration process and the final result. Boris's case demonstrates that even with a fluent English and a competent personal assistant, turning to professionals can yield the best outcome.
