Maximise your potential

Your programme is built entirely around you. Depending on which package you choose, we can support you in:

  • Choosing the right university for you based on your subject interests, strengths and career ambitions
  • Your application form, including the UCAS application process tariff points, and understanding how it will be reviewed
  • Your personal statement so you can effectively describe your ambitions, skills and experience and set yourself apart from other applicants
  • Preparing for interviews with university tutors or admissions team


Applying to Oxford and Cambridge University

If you aspire to go to the University of Oxford or University of Cambridge (or to study medicine), you will know that applications are very competitive. These programmes have distinct application processes, so we will work with you straight away to make sure you have everything you need.

In addition, we will guide you through the interview process and stage mock interviews, so you feel prepared and confident.
