US Tests

We're with you every step of the way

There's more to college applications than just standardised testing. To put together a competitive application, you need to not only have the right academic profile but also build up the right kind of personal profile. We offer support on all aspects of your application, including help with choosing colleges, advice on college essays, guidance on funding, and consultancy on leadership and extra-curricular activities.

College Choice

There are over 1,400 ranked colleges in the US. Whether you're looking for a big private research university or a small liberal arts college, there's a college to suit every student. But with so much choice, it's sometimes hard to know where to start. That's where we can help. We offer college choice sessions that identify the criteria you're seeking in a college experience, and put together a list of colleges based on your preferences. We'll help you put together a range of colleges that match your profile, enabling you to think strategically about your applications, focus your efforts, and maximise your chances of success.

College Essays

College essays are a vital part of your application, but they're often underestimated by international applicants. This may be because the essay style required by U.S. colleges is very different from that expected by British universities, as they're much more conversational and personal in tone. Your college essays represent a chance to give universities a sense of the kind of student you would be, so it's important to communicate your qualities and your enthusiasm for your college choices. We can offer personalised, individual essay sessions and remote editing services.

We also run essay workshops for students at our partner schools and at our London teaching centre. These are a fun and quick way to get started with Common App, Supplementary, and other college essays.

Funding and Scholarships

As you're thinking about your college applications, it's important not to lose sight of how you'll fund your education. Fortunately, there are lots of channels of funding available for international students, including sports scholarships, merit scholarships, university scholarships, and other niche scholarships offered by external organisations. For sports scholars, we work closely with our partners, Sporting Elite, who ensure you boost your prospects of playing university level sports. For other types of funding, we offer a consultancy service that matches you with appropriate scholarships, maximising your chances of accessing that funding. Our students have won hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of support, and many have even been able to gain a 'free ride' at their college of choice.

Consultancy Packages

Some of our busier families prefer the reassurance of a dedicated consultant to oversee their college applications. If this sounds like you, you might want to opt for a complete, bespoke package. We can arrange a consultant who will manage all of the different aspects of the application process, including advising on extra-curricular and leadership activities, registering for standardised testing, choosing colleges, editing college essays, and requesting teacher references. You'll have your own point of contact who will put together an action plan each year, monitor your progress, and liaise with you regularly to keep your applications on track. For more information, please email to request details of consultancy.

UK Application Support

We don't just offer support with American applications! Many of our students are solely focused on the UK, or want to apply to British universities alongside their US applications. Although UK university applications are more straightforward than American ones, it's important to master the different tone required by the UCAS Personal Statement, prepare for the rigour of Oxbridge interviews in the right way, and to apply to a range of colleges that maximise your chances of success. Our UK advisors offer all of the same services as those for US applications, including college choice, essay editing, interview preparation, and accessing funding.
