About University Guardians

University Guardians is a division of Cotswold Guardians and has been set up to provide a low-cost, affordable option for foreign students starting university when they are under 18 and who are still legally required to have a guardian who is based in England.

The company is accredited by AEGIS and has host families around the country who are able to help when needed.

The service acts as an emergency, back-up plan for independent students who are turning 18 during their first year at university in England.

University Guardians acts in Loco Parentis for you whilst you are under age. However, it does not make decisions without first informing the student and the parent as necessary. It will sign all guardianship forms as required by the university.
