Karen Blackney
Head of International Marketing and Recruitment, Brunel International

City University of London

We understand that choosing a course in another country can be a confusing and daunting challenge and that is why we work closely with beo. This is why our relationship with beo is so important, by referring students to beo I know that they have access throughout the year to counsellors familiar with City University London, life in the UK, application procedures and visa issues. Working with beo makes my life and more importantly that of the students far easier.

Simon Denton
Senior International Officer

Durham University

Durham University has been working with beo in Japan since 2005. Since that time beo has assisted many students to obtain a place to study at Durham University, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom.
If you would like to learn more about Durham and its courses please do not hesitate to contact me directly, or to speak to one of the counsellors in beo. We look forward to welcoming you to Durham very soon.

International Officer

University of Edinburgh

I was delighted when the University of Edinburgh decided to open an Office here in Japan. Being based here in Tokyo has been hugely positive and enjoyable: it has enabled me to meet and help many more students than would have been possible had I still been based in Edinburgh.
When we were looking for a location for our office, beo seemed an obvious choice. We have worked with beo for a long time and have an excellent relationship with them. beo is an important partner for us in our work. The staff at beo have a huge amount of expertise and experience and we know that beo offers excellent support to students. Having the University of Edinburgh North East Asia Office based with beo has allowed us to develop our relationship even further and offer an even more complete service to students.

Mr. Matthew Wortley
Director, North East Asia Office

University of Essex

Ms. Jane Langford Horder
Deputy Director, International Office

Goldsmiths College, University of London

Our graduates are at the forefront of the creative industries and academic research both in London and internationally and so there are a great number of students who are interested in studying at Goldsmiths. This is where our close relationship with beo is very useful. The friendly and efficient staff are highly knowledgeable about the unique learning experience at Goldsmiths and so are well equipped to inform students about all aspects of studying with us, from programmes to accommodation. I would recommend beo’s services to any student considering studying at Goldsmiths.

Professor Michael Arthur

We have been working closely with beo to introduce our University to the wider overseas public. I feel confident that together London Met and beo can provide a great service and we look forward to welcoming more students to London Met in future years to come.

Student Recruitment and International Officer

Oxford Brookes University

I formed a particularly positive image of beo and the work they do for us as our representative in Japan. Paul Taylor himself is impressive in his understanding of Japanese higher education; his staff also seem to be very competent and well informed. All have British qualifications and have a good knowledge of British higher education in general and Brookes programmes in particular. Indeed, I would go so far as to say I have not previously, either in Brookes or in my previous universities, come across such an effective representative.

Graham Upton

Oxford Brookes has been a popular choice for students wishing to study in the UK for quite some time. Without the dedication of the beo staff, and the close links forged with our own staff, we would not have been able to provide such comprehensive support for students. beo have helped establish and build the reputation of Oxford Brookes in overseas with highly prestigious partners, for example, Aoyama Gakuin University, Gakushuin University and Kansai Gaidai University.
beo welcomes Oxford Brookes University applicants and provides them with all the information they need so that they become part of the Brookes Experience before they have even left home.

Professor Janet Beer

Queen Mary, University of London

Queen Mary has been working with beo for many years and really values the special relationship that has been forged. Working closely with beo staff to accept students onto a variety of Queen Mary courses, beo staff carefully guide applicants through the maze of options available to ensure that they make the right choice for them before handing over their applications to us here at Queen Mary to consider. We really value the care and support that beo give to potential students of Queen Mary and offering such a high level of service simply ensures that the transition to studying in the UK is as seamless as possible.

Toby Moseley
International Officer

Roehampton University

On behalf of Roehampton University, London, we are very pleased to be working closely with beo to promote the University and UK Higher Education more generally within the overseas market for international higher education. The University greatly values the support it receives from beo throughout the year at British Council Education UK exhibitions, beo student counselling sessions and other student-facing activities and in joint development & delivery of the University’s Japanese language website - www.roehampton.jp. The University looks forward to continuing to work closely with its friends in the beo team for many years to come and looks forward to welcoming students from abroad to its London campus in future years.

Martin Hookham
International Development Manager

University of York

The University of York has been working with beo for a number of years and we have been very impressed with the quality of their service. We have always found the staff at beo to be very efficient, helpful and professional, providing excellent counselling facilities for students. beo’s skilled and experienced advisors have helped many students find out more about living and studying in the UK. We hope to continue to work closely with beo and would not hesitate to recommend their services to potential students.
