China Guardianship team

Our Shanghai office deals with guardianship services for children coming from China who are based at UK boarding schools. They also act as a Schools Placement team to Chinese families who are interested in sending their sons and daughters to study in the UK. Gabbitas has recently opened a new office in the Guangzhou region.

Sofie Liao - Director of Gabbitas China Offices

Sofie LiaoSofie is the Director of Gabbitas China Offices in Shanghai and Guangzhou. Born in China, she moved to Sweden when she was 10, where she was educated at an international school. On completion of her studies in Sweden, she worked as an assistant teacher before moving on to study at the Royal Holloway University of London, where she gained a degree in Business Management.


Sofie worked in the Gabbitas London head office for over three years before being relocated to Shanghai to set up our original representative office before expansion to Guangzhou. She has an excellent knowledge of boarding schools, gained from friends and relatives, and understands the needs and concerns of students from overseas. Sofie is fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and Swedish and is therefore particularly well placed to be able to help parents from China who need support for their children, providing a vital link for parents who prefer to communicate with Gabbitas in these languages rather than in English.
