European Education Law

European Education Law

Our client was an international corporation with over 15 subsidiary bodies and not for profit organisations, focused on academic placements and international travel for study. One of its key roles is to place international students into UK schools for a year’s educational placement designed to enhance the participant’s qualification, employability and view of the academic and cultural world. A conflict had however, arisen between one of our client’s partner schools in respect of the funding that could be provided by the EFA to EU/EEA students that were placed in the UK by our client. We were therefore instructed to provide our client with a conclusive opinion on the funding mechanism that applied in the UK, the resultant business strategy and practical answers as to how our client should advise its partner schools. We undertook the relevant research into the Department of Education’s publications as well as detailed research into the Free Movement of People’s provisions under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and relevant Directives. We provided our clients with succinct, clear and detailed advice in response to their problems whilst also advising on the factors of risk arising within the contract of services between our client and its partner schools. Our client has since planned to alter its business strategy in 2015 to reflect our advice and placed further instructions in another matter of multijurisdictional education law.

We were very happy to hand over our case to Match Solicitors and allow them to do what they do best - they won our appeal. They make no guarantees but at least you know, whether you win or lose, they have done their best for your child.
