Ticket to UK Universities

Stand out from the crowd and gain a vital advantage in the competition for places at the world’s top universities.

This intensive two-week course guides participants through university research and the application process, including IELTS (1), the English test which opens doors in UK and around the world.

Orientation
The course opens with an ‘interest interview’ to identify courses that best fit each participant’s passions, skills, academic interests and grades. We’ll visit top London universities and hear from their experts about what students need to focus on to be a successful candidate. We will tour university campuses and libraries to get a sense of what it means to be an undergraduate in London.

Application
Candidates will be guided through the process of writing a resume and a personal statement, and identifying referees to provide testimonials. They will also build a list of critical actions to improve their attractiveness and stand out from the crowd.

IELTS
With our expert guidance, candidates will prepare for the high-stakes IELTS Academic test. This test is recognised as evidence of proficiency in English by more than 9,000 education and training providers worldwide.
