About UStudy

our clientele

UStudy annually guides between 150 and 200 students to the US and Canada at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate level. We also serve professionals looking for a seat in Law School or Medical School. Placement is offered at schools in all 50 US states and all provinces of Canada. Although most of our clients are from the Netherlands, UStudy has a growing number of clients from Belgium and other Western European countries.

Many of our students are academically talented, with rigorous high school curriculum participation (AP/IB level courses), strong GPA and excellent TOEFL and SAT/ACT scores. Both from national and international schools and sometimes with more than one citizenship.

In 2015 UStudy Sports joined forces with InnoPerformance to form Go USA Talent in Sports (GUTS), see www.ihaveguts.com/eng . GUTS guides prospective student-athletes who are keen to improve their athletic skills in a competitive and challenging varsity team. GUTS has placed students with talent in basketball, baseball, tennis, soccer, field hockey, golf, ice hockey, American football, volleyball, gymnastics, softball, cricket, rowing, swimming, and water polo.

We also often assist with midterm referrals, one-semester referrals, and non-degree seeking students. These are, for the most part, academic and professional qualifications (associate, bachelor, master degrees) but are also applicable for English/French language training and summer programs.

How we are different

Our core business is to provide expert, concrete options and plans for everyone wishing to study in North America. At UStudy our personal, customized guidance services starts with the student-client, whose wishes and goals are at the heart of our work. Because our work is individually tailored to suit each client’s wishes, UStudy is compatible with all colleges and universities in the US and Canada at all levels and locations.

Our main service involves creating a thorough, step-by-step admissions plan for one or more institutions that suits the client’s individual budget and goals, as well as their academic and/or athletic abilities. A large range of other services fall within the application spectrum, such as helping to edit a student’s academic/sports resume, tutoring for the SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE and TOEFL tests, providing coaching on how to write college application essays, any necessary translation work, and help with answering  questions about admissions and visa requirements.

UStudy works closely with guidance counselors and education mentors within local and international high schools throughout the Netherlands. Our director, Marina Meijer, previously worked as the Guidance Counselor For The US at The International School of The Hague. In this capacity, Marina provided advice and guidance to students (and their parents) who are specifically interested in furthering their education in the US.

As an organization, UStudy also serves Dutch high schools in a variety of ways: from guiding them in creating a school profile, to setting up partner programs with US and Canadian high schools, colleges or universities. Since 2014, UStudy has hosted an annual workshop specifically tailored towards Dutch guidance counselors that provides them with a guideline on how to assist their own students who want to pursue an education program in the US. These workshops are unique in their kind and our close and trusted relationship with guidance counselors is where UStudy has a distinct market advantage over competitive European agents.

  • Sports Exposure Showcases (women’s field hockey and women’s & men’s soccer)
