The Hoosac School and Layton Christian Academy

Marina has been of tremendous help in finding a suitable school in America for my son. Thanks to her, his dream of playing basketball in America has come true. She facilitated conversations with various schools and coaches, allowing us to choose the best option. Furthermore, she guided us through the administrative process. Marina was always available to answer our questions and provide further assistance. She is pleasant to work with, efficient, and detail-oriented. If you are looking for a school in America or Canada, I highly recommend her services!

Marina and the UStudy organization provided our daughter with helpful, professional, and transparent guidance. The support from Amy and Marina at UStudy ensured that our daughter ended up at a university where she fits in perfectly, both in terms of her rowing level and academics. We would not have been able to navigate this search and find the perfect match on our own.
