I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.

I am going to Australia for a semester, and before finding Uniclub the whole application seemed impossible. These guys are simply the best. They have the right answer for literally every question that you have. They are helpful, quick, with excellent service

Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
