    Guys I'm am international student hoping to study in the UK. I came across this website "students4uk" that claims theyll get me up to 4 offers from different universities for my desired course which I can then choose from. It sounds a bit fishy even though theyre charging a high amount for this service. Has anyone tried it? Is it reliable? Is it trust-worthy?

    That's basically an agent charging you extra to use the UCAS system.

    If you look around TSR and the UCAS website you should have enough support and guidance to apply through UCAS without the support from an agent.

    Universities pay agents a percentage of your fees if you end up coming to them via an agent - that means an agent is motivated not by finding you the best place for you but by sending you to the university that pays the most money to them. They're not impartial advisers. If you're not confident in using UCAS without an agent though then they might be worth considering - there are a lot of agents though. Don't go with the first hit on google.
