We asked Claire the following questions:

What do you love about SBC?
I love the culture and the people I work with! We are a passionate and experienced team who really care about what we do. We want our families and students to have the best experiences when they come to the UK.

If you were a student, what SBC subject would you choose to study this Summer?
I would love to study Academic Discovery for 3 weeks at Oxford College. My chosen subjects would be Law, Medicine and Politics & Economics. I have an interest in all 3 but feel this way I’d get a taster of them all to best inform long term study decisions.

What’s your top UK Summer travel tip?
Being a Yorkshire girl, I would say Fish and Chips and Yorkshire Pudding are definitely something to try when you come to the UK.

What’s your one piece of advice for students this year?
Be confident that you can do anything you put your mind to, believe in yourself and if you have the opportunity to study abroad go for it!
