Kamel Koufi

Hello! My name is Kamel Koufi and I’m from Algeria.

I have recently moved to the beautiful city of Brighton after living for a few years in London. In addition to my university studies in languages and project management, I’ve previously worked in various roles involving training and education. This helped me acquire a strong knowledge about UK universities and colleges and understand the needs of international students. I also speak fluently Arabic, English and French. I am also tempted to say I speak a little bit of Spanish but not enough (un poco!)

I have travelled a lot and visited many countries and made so many friends. I know most of Middle Eastern and North African countries (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Lebanon, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt…).

Please feel free to get in touch with me and have a chat about your future studies. I will be more than happy to listen to you and give you the best advice possible for your studies. So, do get in touch!

Emmanuel Martine

Hello! My name is Emmanuel and I´m from the beautiful and crowded City of Mexico. You can contact me in Spanish and English and I also speak a little bit of French.

I studied communication science, lived in the USA for a couple of years and have visited many countries. I have an excellent understanding of International student life and I love meeting people, making friends and sharing multicultural experiences. As a result of having a wide network of international friends, I came to realize that we are not that different from each other!

Choosing to study abroad is one of your most important and fulfilling decisions in life. Whether you already know what to study or you have no idea! Feel free to contact me and together we can make the best decision.

I would like to share one phrase that will be of great use once you undertake this interesting path of studying in the UK:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle

Yana Baranova

Hello, my name is Yana and I speak English, Russian, and very basic French (hope to be fluent one day!)

I have been involved in travelling even before I was born – I started travelling in my mum’s belly! I lived indifferent parts of Russia and experienced living in the USA during my student years.

Over time I found travelling more and more exciting – it does open every door to us, broadens our horizons, and lets us meet people from different cultures and backgrounds.

I have studied English at University, and the language made me feel the world has become much bigger for me – I could interact with so many people! Not long after graduation I joined the international education industry, and was able to broaden my knowledge of the study options available for international students in the UK. I truly believe that Education in the UK is the best investment a person can make, and it will give you back much more than was expected – not only a worldwide recognised degree, but a different life view.

Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions you are looking for answers to, going abroad to study is a big step, and you need to be well prepared!

Unchulee Pungya

Hello, my name is Unchulee and I come from Thailand which is also known as, ‘the Land of Smiles'. Before I joined the International Study Centre, I worked in a variety of administration positions in International Schools here in Bangkok and was most recently involved in student counselling.

I think it is imperative that a student advisor not only has good communication skills, but also has an empathy and understanding of the challenges, opportunities and concerns that confront you as an international student. After I graduated from university here in Bangkok, I also was an international student studying in London from 2004 – 2008 and this experience has convinced me of the importance of building a positive relationship with students based on attentive and personal service.

I am a keen traveler and have visited the UK, Europe, several countries in SE Asia and Australia. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and I look forward to assisting you with your education dreams.

Estelle Lateyrie

Hello, my name is Estelle and I come from a small town in the South-West of France. I can speak French, Spanish and a little Russian.

After graduating with a first degree in business and Languages in a French university, I moved to the UK in order to study a MA in management. Throughout my studies, I had the opportunity to study with many international students and made friends from all over the world. This experience has not only broadened my horizons but has also changed my perception of my own culture. I am sure you will also find studying in the UK a very rewarding experience!

Going abroad to study is a very existing project but I know that it can also be a little stressful to deal with a different education system and another culture. As a former international student, I will do my best to understand your specific needs, help you to choose the right course and guide you through the application process. So, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have and I will be happy to help!

I look forward to hearing from you!
