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.

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!


Anne Geurts

Jacksonville University

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.
