Jacqui Allan
This is a very well written and readable book. It is the author's breadth of knowledge about the UK education system coupled with his intimate understanding of the needs and concerns of international students that will ensure this book is a success.

Rhoda Borcherding
The author's coverage of the subject is very comprehensive, and his organization is superb. The chapters follow a logical sequence, progressing nicely through the various stages of the process for the international student. Why? What? Where? How? - it's all there. The world needs an honest, informative, straightforward guide to UK higher education.
