Agents and guardians

Pupils who normally reside abroad have a UK-based guardian.

St Joseph’s College works in partnership with Aegis, the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students.

It is essential that all St Joseph’s students with parents overseas should have a guardian in the UK. This is to ensure that in circumstances such as school holidays or an emergency there is an English-speaking adult in the UK responsible for them. Guardians must hold either a British passport or have permanent UK residency, and must provide the school with copies of the documents as proof.

It is the responsibility of each family to appoint a guardian.  Some families choose to use agencies and others arrange for local families or friends to fulfil this role. The school will call a meeting with the applicant, parents and guardian prior to the student’s arrival to ensure guardians are fully aware of their responsibilities.

Parents may appoint agents to help with the admissions process and visa applications.
