University Guidance
Homepage Academic University Guidance


We recognise the importance of facilitating the admission of our pupils into the world’s leading universities. Our university guidance programme is personalised, strategic and effective. We provide pupils and their parents with specialist advice and support them in their application journey as early as year 9. We work with each pupil to identify their skills and interests. They receive ongoing counselling on cultivating the attributes that universities value. We teach them to think strategically when choosing their coursework and preparing for their admissions exams. Moreover, our team stays current on the always-changing admissions requirements at the world's best schools. Whether conducting mock interviews for Oxbridge or coaching them on how to write an effective personal statement, we are with our pupils every step of the way in the application and admissions process.


University offers

Our pupils get accepted at some of the world’s most prestigious universities. We provide them with all the tools and guidance they need to navigate the applications and admissions process, but such success is ultimately a testament to our pupils’ own hard work and determination. Below is a sampling of the many top-ranked universities that have recently accepted our pupils.
