Helping you to make outstanding university applications

Sophie Taylor Barthorpe Tuition Manager

Sophie Taylor Barthorpe – Undergraduate Admissions Consultant

Choosing a university is one of the most exciting parts of the academic journey. It can also be extremely difficult to decide where to apply and how to ensure you get a place. Every year we help students from all over the world secure places at Oxford, Cambridge and a wide range of Russell Group universities. We also help with applications to specialist institutions for niche subjects such as Marine Biology and Celtic Studies.

Rather than providing a ‘one size fits all’ package, we provide precisely the services that you need. For some students, this could begin with help choosing a university, others may just need support with their UCAS or Oxbridge Personal Statement. We also provide introductions to specialist tutors for the Cambridge and Oxford admissions exams and interviews.

As part of our admissions service, we introduce tutors to help prepare for specific entrance tests including; Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT), Classics Admissions Test (CAT), Maths Admissions Test (MAT), Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA), History Aptitude Test (HAT), English Literature Admissions Test (ELAT), Law National Aptitude Test (LNAT). If you are being assessed in another discipline, please let us know – it is likely that we will be able to introduce a tutor to help.
