Know thyself:  

  • What are my strengths, talents & interests?

  • What kind of learner am I?

    There is no one-size-fits-all solution

    It’s not about the name, but about the fit

    We are here to help ask the right questions...


Land of Opportunity:

  • HUGE importance placed on college/university degree

  • Plans for admission and financing are made VERY early

  • “Elite” universities & colleges (ivy league, liberal arts colleges, seven sisters)

  • students spend much time researching, touring and learning about schools

  • strong academics, extra curricular & test preparation

  • Most students live “on campus”

  • Involved application process with deadlines:

    • early admission: November 15th

    • regular admission January 1st


  • Application is centralized by the UCAS

  • Elite is similar to USA elite 

  • not as much focus on college entry testing

  • strong academics coupled with extra curricular activities

  • Scotland is different: free tuition for EU students
