  • Applying to university

    With over 60 universities in the UK it should be relatively easy to find an institution and course that fits a student's capabilities and both current interests and future hopes whilst extending and challenging them academically.

  • University resources, references and links

    Resources, organisations, references, books, links and consultants to help you navigate through the maze of courses, tests, essays, extracurriculars, applications and scholarships or post-graduate education. Vetted by us annually.

  • School reference letters for US universities

    Most universities ask for at least one reference from a student’s careers advisor, headteacher etc. It’s different from a personal statement, with a different focus from what UCAS wants.

  • Deadlines & early decision

    You must meet your deadlines! US universities will not accept late applications unless they have ‘rolling admissions’, meaning they accept students on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Financial statements for US university applications

    Most universities will require you to complete a financial statement along with your application. Do this carefully as it will be used to determine your eligibility for financial assistance.
