Education Advisers offers an individually-tailored, paid-for service for students and their parents. This covers all aspects of choosing and applying to University, including the following:
Your assigned adviser will spend at least an hour with you, and your parents, in a face-to-face meeting to discuss your interests, academic achievements to date, and other factors which will ultimately influence your choice of degree course and University. Following this meeting, your adviser will draw up a shortlist of course/s and universities for you to consider. This information will be sent to you via email. Your adviser will be available via email or telephone for ongoing discussion until the final selection has been reached. Whilst your adviser will recommend the best fit for you in his opinion, you are welcome to make your own selection. The final selection is yours to make.
Your adviser will offer specialist guidance with the writing of the ‘Personal Statement’ (for Bachelor programmes) and the ‘Statement of Purpose’ (for Masters programmes). For many students this is the most difficult part of the application process, and may necessitate a number of drafts being emailed back and forth between you and your adviser. Please note that your adviser will not write your statement for you, but will advise about content, balance, focus and impact. University Admissions Tutors can easily spot a statement which has been written for a candidate, and therefore Education Advisers will not harm your application by providing such a service.
On-Going Email/Telephone Support
Your adviser will maintain regular contact with you throughout the whole application process, primarily via email, but also by telephone. A further face-to-face meeting can be arranged if required. This support will be available to you from the moment you contract Education Advisers to your enrolment at University.
Many Universities do not interview candidates. However some, including Cambridge, Oxford, University College, London and Medical Schools, will normally invite suitably qualified applicants for interview. If you are invited to interview, Education Advisers will assist you with your interview preparation.
Your adviser will remain available to you right through until you enrol at University. This will include advice on the offers your receive and your final selection of university through to receipt of your results, confirmation from your Universities, the use of the ‘Clearing’ process if required and then any issues you may encounter prior to enrolment.
