UNIVERSITY CHOICE

Whatever a young person’s ambitions might be, university-level education opens doors. The decisions that sixth formers make will alter not only their career path but also who they meet and what kind of university experience they have. That’s why it’s important to get it right. We work with students to win places at all of the major universities in the UK, Europe and the USA.

The university entrance process must start with a careful consideration of ‘what course?’ and ‘where?’. We work very closely with families to consider academic, social and pastoral needs. We invest time in getting to know the student whilst helping them to identify which courses and universities would be suitable for them.

Our consultants are excellent listeners. We will ask the right questions and provide an impartial sounding board, bringing the student to the decision that is right for them. Perhaps a student has always lived in a major city; we can talk to them about the pros and cons of living on a campus instead. Maybe they have always assumed that they will study Business & Management with a view to taking on the family firm; we will look at alternative ways of building business experience whilst at university. Often the student feels overwhelmed by options, and does not know where to start; we can take them through the decision-making process systematically in order to make them feel confident of their choice.

UNDERGRADUATE & POSTGRADUATE APPLICATIONS

Once we have together identified a course that will allow the student to build on their existing skills and pursue their ambitions, we will support them in reaching the institution of their choice. Writing an effective Personal Statement, which neatly encapsulates not only why they feel passionate about taking the course and why they are the right candidate, is challenging.

Our subject specialists can help with Personal Statements from planning, through drafting and on to polishing the whole document. Successful applications to universities in the UK, Europe and the US require organisation and accuracy; our consultants will ensure that students demonstrate both whilst presenting themselves in the best light possible.

Our consultants also help students with selection and entry to postgraduate courses (including MBA study) – guiding them through the significant number of offerings and ensuring their applications are well constructed.
