Geraldine Raison, Director

Geraldine Raison, Director

Geraldine Raison has a background in international student recruitment for the University of Warwick, and has worked with students, schools and universities in over 30 countries. She started UKSO (Graduate Study Options) in 2009 following a PG Dip in Career Guidance. Membership of UKCISA means that she receives the same training on Home/EU national vs international status as university staff so is ideally placed to advise parents about their eligibility. “My passion is helping young people to fully realise their potential. It is hugely rewarding to help students, and their parents, through the application process and onto the first step of a successful career”. Read more about Geraldine and the team.
