Student Guardianship

Your child deserves the best care and guidance
while studying in the UK.
At Ruyang, we provide a full guardianship service,
ensuring our students enjoy the security
and well-being that they need to succeed.

Comprehensive Guardianship for Your Child in the UK

A complete programme of care for international school children and university students during their time in the United Kingdom.

AEGIS-accredited Guardianship

A comprehensive Guardian Service, tailored to the specific needs of each student, covering all the main areas that parents are concerned with, ensuring safety, happiness and the best chance of success at school.

Transport and Accommodation During School Holidays

When your child is not in school (for example, during half-term breaks and other holiday periods), we will organise a carefully-chosen Host Family, arrange safe transport, and offer various activities and trips.

Academic Monitoring

Students expect and deserve the best chance to do well in their studies. We keep track of every student's performance at school, attend Parents' Evenings to speak to their teachers, write full reports on the child's progress, and arrange catch-up/revision tutorials if required.

Pastoral Care

Our priorities are safely, happiness and individual guidance for every young person in our care. With these things in place, personal development and academic excellence can thrive.


We are fully accredited by AEGIS, the highest standard in the industry.

Points of Contact

Head office in the UK

After you arrive in the UK, our Leicester office will take over and provide your guardianship care throughout your school career.

Our counsellors overseas can still be the main point of contact for parents, which is often more convenient due to the time difference, but our UK staff will provide any day-to-day care as required.

Local educational counselling in China

4F-3, No. 65, Gaotie 7th Rd. Zhubei City, Hsinchu County 30273 Taiwan (ROC)

For your convenience, our office in Taiwan will usually handle your case at the planning and advice stage, when the important decisions are made.
It is often easier to speak to someone close by, with no problems with the time difference between you and the UK. With full support from our office in the UK, our counsellors will understand your requests and ideas for your future. They will handle your main application, after talking it over with the UK office, who are always up-to-date on schools and options for you to consider. Once in the UK, many of the duties will be handled by the main office, while the consultants in Taiwan will continue to be the main contacts for the parents. This arrangement works well, because all our staff will be familiar with the situation at all times.

What Our Clients Say

We’re proud to be able to pass on the experiences of some of the students and professionals that have worked with us over the years.

My wife and I have placed all four of our children with Ruyang over the past twelve years. We have been able to trust Claire and her team with the care of our children in the UK, all of whom have grown to make us proud. Thank you, Claire!

I feel so lucky when I get to stay with Claire because it's like one big family. RUYANG really do care about you as a person and it's nice to have someone you can talk to if you feel sad or have a question. Oh, and Claire cooks nice food, too!
RUYANG have acted as guardians for students at Saint Michael’s College for a number of years now. I have been very impressed with the care and commitment Claire and her staff have shown to the students. They are clearly conscientious, hardworking and dedicated.
