We recognise that everyone is unique and everybody's university requirements are different. So in this initial consultation we like to get to know you and your higher education priorities.
We explore: what you enjoy studying, your future career aspirations and any other factors that are important to you.
We help you understand your options and how our services can help you take the next step!
The UK has over 170 universities and higher education institutions all providing diverse subjects and experiences for their students. It's therefore not surprising that international students often find it difficult to work out which universities are suitable for them and to narrow down their choices.
Our co-founders have over 30 years' experience in the UK higher education sector and we work with a network of international mentors who have graduated from UK universities across a range of subject areas. We are not sales agents for universities so we provide an impartial service focused on what's right for you as an individual.
We are a registered UCAS centre and help you prepare and submit your application through UCAS.
For students who are considering applying to Oxford or Cambridge we also offer a specialist Oxbridge service which prepares you for the unique nature of 'Oxbridge' application process.
Our undergraduate application service helps you by providing:
If you would like to find out more about how we can help you with your undergraduate applications complete our online questionnaire and we will be in touch for a free, no-obligation consultation.
Our Oxbridge Services are for students who are thinking of applying to the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge (which are commonly referred to as "Oxbridge"). The services are suitable for undergraduate applicants (applying through UCAS) who wish to get support navigating the unique application proccesses of these two universities.
The first thing to point out is that students may only apply to Oxford or Cambridge (NOT to both universities). This means you will need to make quite a big decision before you start your application.
Secondly, many students are not clear on what studying at Oxbridge is like and whether it is right for them. Therefore, we suggest starting with our Initial Assessment Service before continuing with our Oxbridge Application and Preparation Services.
If you are interested in our Intial Oxbridge Assessment Service (or any of our other Oxbridge Services) fill out this form and we will be in touch for a free, no-obligation chat about how we can help.
This initial service helps you to decide whether Oxbridge is right for you. It includes:
This service will help you to:
Whilst Oxbridge applications are submitted through UCAS, the process is slightly different to that of non-oxbridge applications and, as a result, students often find the process confusing and stressful.
Our Mentoring and Application Service is designed to familiarise you with the process, build your confidence and help you to prepare an application in which your personal academic strengths shine.
Once you've decided on whether you want to apply to Oxford or Cambridge we pair you with a student mentor in your chosen subject area. These students have been through the application process themselves (being current or recent Oxbridge students) and can provide friendly support and advice.
Our mentors provide a series of structured virtual sessions:
Note: You only require one UCAS application for up to five universities (Oxford or Cambridge plus four). Your personal statement, which you have drafted with advice from our mentors, will be suitable for all other university choices (so you don't need to take any of our other UCAS application services).
The admissions process for many (but not all) courses at Oxford and Cambridge requires you to sit an aptitude test.
We can help you prepare for these tests through our Test Preparation Service. This involves:
Being called to an interview can feel daunting and Oxbridge interviews are unlike a typical interview. They are designed to simulate the tutorial/supervision system and focus on exploring your academic curiousity and rigour. It helps academics to determine whether you are the kind of student who will thrive in the unique Oxbridge learning environment.
It is therefore extremely helpful to prepare for the interview with a mentor who has been through the experience themselves. This will help you to feel comfortable with what to expect and be confident on the day of your interview.
The service includes:
You should be aware that you only get a week or two of notice before being called to interview and it is worth considering pre-booking our Interview Preparation Service in advance so that we can schedule you in.
If you are interested in any of the services above fill out our online form and we will arrange a free, no-obligation conversation with you to discuss your options.
As an international graduate you are highly valued by UK universities who wish to recruit high calibre students for their postgraduate courses. Our new postgraduate platform will put you and your unique skills and experience at the heart of the postgraduate application process!
We will work with you to assess your UK university options and draft a strong Statement of Purpose. This is a document which will highlight your academic and professional qualities and aspirations, your fit to the programmes you wish to study, and the value you would bring to those programmes.
We will then forward your Statement of Purpose through our network of UK university admission teams, focusing on (but not limited to) those universities you have highlighted as your preferred options.
This approach has the huge benefit of facilitating timely responses from universities and ensures a transparent approach where your application is accessible to all UK universities.
We recognise that some students prefer ta 'DIY (do it yourself) approach and only require some of our services. That's no problem, whilst our standard packages provide 'best value' we are happy to provide individual services too. Just get in touch to discuss your requirements.
