Past roles and experience

Performing well at University can make all the difference to careers or further academic opportunities after graduation. Our University Consultants are experienced in mentoring students and ensuring they are equipped to succeed academically and benefit from all that University has to offer.

Applying for university is a huge milestone in any student’s life, and choosing the right institution while managing the application process can be highly challenging for all involved.

We understand that it is vitally important that students and families alike are well informed about the Universities being considered, but also about the suitability of the courses on offer with regard to the long-term and career goals of the individual

Application and Interview Resource

This is for students targeting Ivy League, Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities.

This would involve a 1.5-hour session with one of our Subject Specialists. The Specialist would spend 75 minutes with the student and 15 minutes feeding back to the parent(s).

English language support

For overseas students who are travelling to study in the UK, English language tuition can take place before their course begins and ongoing throughout their studies.

Our tutors can help students prepare for their IELTS and EAP exams, as well as giving a firm foundation in English for higher education students. We offer a comprehensive EAL tuition programme that facilitates a smooth transition and a strong academic foundation for students beginning studies in the UK.

Success at University with academic and careers support

First Year Mentoring

Our First Year Mentoring package helps to smooth the way by supporting students through this transition phase from school to university. We offer new undergraduates a plan of action that assists them in several ways, including time management for staying on top of their academic studies, getting an overview of the opportunities available to them and encouraging them to integrate with new groups of friends.

Careers

Our Careers and Universities Consultants provide comprehensive advice for students at every stage of the process, helping them choose subjects and activities that will be expected within a chosen industry. Careers planning is encouraged for students looking to succeed in the competitive graduate employment market.
