Explainer video for university application process

"We really love the films, thank you!"

Attracting students to the UK

The British Council wanted several films to help guide overseas students through the process of applying to UK universities. They wanted films that were friendly and informative and suitable for viewers with English as a second language.

Peer advice

We suggested working with a number of student ambassadors – people currently studying in the UK with experience of the application process. We worked with the client to recruit and train students, and wrote clear and easy to understand scripts. We incorporated screen shots to demonstrate the process and emphasised key points with graphics. We also provided subtitles in 4 different languages.


The client was delighted with the films and has gone on to commission more work from us.
