The US College application process is notoriously competitive, complex and very different from the UK system. Our US College Consultants are all US graduates and will deal with every stage of the application process. Each application is separate, unlike the UK system, so students should allow time to prepare up to fifteen different submissions which will include College Admissions essays, school transcripts, and references. The key to a successful application is developing an effective strategy, which highlights a student’s academic, professional and extracurricular abilities so that they stand out from the crowd.

For each student, we create a bespoke blueprint that includes College visits and shortlisting, application management (with a timeline for each step of the process), and hands-on essay optimisation. We brainstorm with students to help them tap into their unique voice to craft essays that reflect their personality, vision and values.

Every applicant is required to take the US ACT or SAT tests and possibly SAT subject tests. We offer targeted preparation courses that improve score results, especially for international students unfamiliar with American standardised testing.

To enhance your child’s competitive edge, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible for a preliminary discussion leading up to the application period.
