Britain offers both home and international students outstanding opportunities to explore their chosen discipline in world-class institutions. Our consultants and educators support pathways to the full range of universities and programmes. Based on a bespoke discovery consultation, we develop roadmaps and action plans to navigate students through a complex university landscape.
Our education consultants offer students a personalised university search, course selection, and personal statement guidance.
We draw on the expertise of our tuition and education consultancy teams, many of whom are Oxbridge graduates.
We have a dedicated Oxbridge mentor who designs a bespoke programme for each candidate and works closely with them to ensure they present a competitive application. We engage students beyond the curriculum and introduce them to university-style debate so that they are are truly ready to embrace their discipline in an intellectually stimulating environment.
Our dedicated education consultants mentor and guide students through a bespoke process which inspires them to achieve their ambitions.
Our comprehensive preparation package covers personal statement support, developing a competitive profile, as well as interview and test preparation. Candidates also benefit from the support of industry-experts and professionals on their application journey.
Central to the programme are numerous (open-ended) contact hours with the student. These hours are focused on putting together a strong personal dossier, and assisting in completing every part of the Common Application – a de facto centralised application system which many US universities have opted into.
There is close guidance and advice on entry tests as well as on the various types of application essays, and possible interview scenarios that a US university applicant is likely to face. Carfax Consultants oversee every administrative and organisational aspect of the student’s applications for up to ten universities and including submission of the applications.
Carfax Consultants provide a supportive programme to help students choose and apply to competitive institutions for a taught or research postgraduate degree that matches their academic interests and professional goals. Preparation programmes involve specialist advice on the best courses and universities to consider, qualification requirements and professional aspirations, assistance in the preparation and submission of written work, and organising additional specialist tuition where required.
