This is where we really get to know what you want to do with your life. We discuss your career aspirations and advise on what would be the best degree for you to study – the answer isn’t always obvious. What about after university? Do you want to do a post grad? What do employers look for in a degree? What about internships and international placements? Should you be studying overseas?
Initial consultation and strategy
Competition for places is fierce and brilliant grades aren’t always enough. There is a game to be played and UCAS tutors can discuss strategies, from choosing the right combinations of courses, to planning the best possible visit and interview. They will be talking from first hand experience; wherever possible we will introduce tutors who have been to the universities you are applying to.
Got a place through clearing but aren’t sure if it’s right for you? Tutors are there every step of the way to help deal with the results. They can give you information about specific universities that you might not have visited first time around, or help optimising your chances if you did better or worse than expected. The key to success in clearing is to get fast, reliable information and to apply it effectively. Check out our clearing guide.
Oxford and Cambridge (Oxbridge) Applications
These are the UK’s most challenging universities to enter; not just because they are academically superior (indeed, for many disciplines they are outranked by other universities) but because of their worldwide cachet. Our Oxbridge Admissions tutors are all Oxbridge graduates and can give first hand insight into how to effectively prepare for the interview and personal statement. They will also be able to answer any questions about choosing colleges and courses. Check out our Oxbridge Admissions tips on SLT TV.
