It went so well that he will return to Bay College in August to obtain his Associates Degree and play another season for the Bay Norse! Go Norse! Go Thijs! A big thanks to Amy and Marina from UStudy, they have contributed to ensuring that Thijs had such a smooth transition to student life in the US.

Duc Gakpo

California State University in Long Beach

Ustudy/Marina Meijer assisted us very well in arranging everything for a year of studying in the USA.  She was always friendly, honest, and helpful. She responded quickly to messages, provided useful information, and calmly repeated in which email or PowerPoint we could find something that we had overlooked. There was so much more to it than we had expected. During the year we still received good and useful answers to our questions. Partly due to her support and effort, our son had a fantastic year at California State University Long Beach.
