What our customers say about ULYSSES International Studies (UIS) :

I was lucky enough to work with Mariet during my time at the British Council, whether this was at the education exhibitions organized by the British Council, events at our premises or events organized by Mariet herself. Mariet was an absolute pleasure to work with, pro-active, positive and dynamic. She is very knowledgeable on the UK education market and is excellent at connecting with and giving unbiased advice to future students. (Laura Owen , former BRITISH COUNCIL Project Manager) 


Mariet takes the time to know her clients. She is a skilled listener and knows how to guide students along the way from choosing good 'match' schools, programs, application processes and the endless paperwork and selection processes till registration. Mariët is patient, knows how to nudge and be firm to get things done. I highly recommend her services both to schools as to parents as individual coach for their child.

Finding the right university is a challenge - every course and every university is different and each student is unique. Successfully choosing, applying, and getting accepted to universities abroad is certainly possible, but it requires preparation and motivation.


Making the decision to study in a foreign country and going through the application process is a personal journey of self-growth and discovery. You will need to make yourself stand out by bringing your uniqueness and academic strengths to light. Having somebody next to you who has solid and practical experience will enhance your chances of success.
