Tettenhall College reviews

Albert

I study the A-level course at Tettenhall College - the trip was organized by Smapse company and parents were asked to leave feedback about their impressions. If you want to study abroad, but are afraid to organize everything yourself - contact Smapse!

Seriously, we did not regret at all. We were picked up by the school (and it was chosen for me, taking into account all my wishes), helped with the registration of documents and visas (they wrote to the consulate, transferred all the documents). Managers even offered to buy air tickets and help with the transfer. We took the transfer, and we took the tickets ourselves - our father had accumulated miles, some kind of loyalty program, did not go into details. At the same time, we were very surprised that the admission in the school is free, without a commission: we were told that Smapse works as official representatives, not intermediaries, therefore there is no commission. 

A few words about the school: beautiful, convenient, technologically, difficult. I really liked the school and campus. Libraries, computers, interactive whiteboards, projectors, language laboratories, individual supplementary classes are all at our service. The only thing I did not prepare for - A-level really difficult program: I spend almost the whole day reading textbooks. But in the evening it is pleasant to warm up and walk, to kick the ball (in the school there is a football field). I hope that I will get involved - but it's also much easier to prepare for an English university. In short, count your strength!
