The university orientation service can include different elements:
- Vocational profile (in case you are not sure about what to study)
- University proposals
- Application to universities
Yes, they are independent elements of our university orientation service, so you can hire them independently. However, if you hire the university orientation pack that includes these two services, you will get a discount. Request prices here.
It depends on the country where you want to apply. In Spain and in the United States there are no limits.
The sooner the better. Application timelines vary across countries; however we recommend starting at least one year before the commencement date. This way you can explore different options and their requirements and then focus on the actual applications.
Our counseling is comprehensive. The process can start with:
- ESO/IGCSE: the vocational profile that includes recommendations on types of high schools or subjects to take depending on the student’s profile, as well as possible degrees to study.
- High School/IB/A-levels: the vocational profile if you are not sure about what to study or you can start directly with the university proposal service. The university proposal takes into account the profile of each student, including their academic grades as well as their preferences. Finally, our university orientation service also includes assistance during the university application process.
It depends on the student, the country of choice and the specific requirements of the degree in question. In the early stages of the process we define the number of sessions. In our experience it requires at least 4-5 sessions.
We don’t offer this service, but we can put you in contact with specialists in this matter.
Yes, depending on the type of tests either we help you ourselves or put you in contact with specialists.
Yes, we can put you in contact with tutors that help you prepare for the exam. We can also advise you on the exam and where to register.
It depends on how demanding and competitive the degrees and the universities are. Some require a TOEFL score of 100 points or more, others 80, 70 or even 60 points. For the IELTS, between 6 and 8 points.
Different degrees have specific requirements. In general they require around 6.5 in IELTS (or 176 in Cambridge English Score) with minimum requirements in some exam sections. In certain fields of study, such as law and medicine, the English requirements can be 7.0 or higher.
In the university proposal we always include both the academic and the English language requirements.
Notice that the English requirement is not necessary at the time of application, but once you are admitted. Some universities offer pre-admission English courses if the student does not meet the language requirements.
As in the United Kingdom, English requirements vary depending on the degree and the university. In general, between 6.0 and 7.0 in IELTS, with minimum requirements in some exam sections.
Yes, finding scholarships is another of our services. Please note that requirements vary depending on the country and university and we cannot guarantee results.

In the United Kingdom universities guaranty accommodation for freshmen students. You would have to contact them directly, but we can support you in this part of the process if needed.
In the Netherlands universities do not usually offer accommodation, but some do hold reservations on rental properties and guide you in your search. Beyond Education can help you in your search for housing
In the United States universities offer housing. The system is designed so that students live at least the first two years in campus (in some cases living in campus is mandatory during the first year). You will have to contact the university directly, but we can support you in this part of the process if needed. If you decide to live off campus, we will not be able to help you.
- United Kingdom: If you are an EU citizen, we will tell you where you need to go to begin your application, which app to download to verify your identity and, finally, how to submit the application. Once the system confirms that your application was successful, you can travel to the United Kingdom. If you are not an EU citizen, the procedure is different. You will have to go in person to a Visa Application Center for them to confirm your identity and check your documents. We can work together on this.
- Netherlands: EU students do not need a visa to enter the Netherlands or to apply for residence. However, they will need to provide the university with the relevant identification documents. Your registration at the university will have to be finalized before the start of classes. All incoming students have to register with the municipality. If you are not from the EU the procedure is different. With a few exceptions, students must apply for a visa to enter the country (MVV) and then apply for a student residence permit (VVR). If this is your case, we can support you in the process.
- United States: We will explain the visa application procedure and answer any questions you may have.
