Working with an educational adviser or agent

If you are planning to seek the support of an educational adviser or ‘agent’, we would strongly recommend that you first refer to British Councils' Student Guide to Choosing an Education Agent. 

The University of Manchester’s contracted educational advisers are trusted, trained representatives of the institution. If you are dissatisfied with your experience, please email international@manchester.ac.uk.
