Introducing the MLS University Placement Service
...Seven parts to success
All MLS university pathway course staff are familiar with the level of study needed for successful entry to a British university and students are offered every assistance with their applications and choice of university. In addition, and at no extra charge, the MLS University Counsellor is available to offer private advice and counselling.
From time to time we welcome members of staff from the universities with whom we cooperate. Several times a year, trips to view universities are made for the benefit of our pathway students.
Since 1981 Barry Henwood has been involved in pathway courses to Universities and MLS International College has now established excellent links and good connections with a large number of universities, both in the UK and Ireland. Most of the counselling and advisory work is carried out by the MLS University Counsellors. The universities frequently visit MLS and we also arrange visits on behalf of our students to these universities. Full advice is given on UCAS application for UK universities.
