Receive dedicated personal advice from a personal mentor on strategic aspects of the application, from choice of university to guidance on super-curricular activities
Application strategy through monthly mentorship sessions
Our Leading Education university application programmes – from Knowledge Building to Interview Preparation – are designed to cover the ‘how’ and ‘what’ of applying. The monthly mentorship programme focussed on Application Strategy covers the ‘why’ and ‘where’.
This can start from as young as Year 10 (or equivalent), and continue right the way through to actually starting at university. We offer a world-class personal mentor to guide you through the entire process, offering recommendations, advice, and clear strategy on how best to achieve your goals.
The monthly sessions can cover anything from choosing an Oxbridge College to checking in on personal wellbeing and ensuring a student is preparing properly for exams.
Long-term personal support offering twice-monthly sessions designed around your personal needs and strengths / weaknesses
Work with high-achieving Oxbridge tutors who have been through the process and understand first hand the challenges and questions you might be facing
Application Strategy works alongside our structured Leading Education programmes, taking you all the way from GCSEs through to actually arriving (and surviving) at university!
Ideal for Oxbridge
Although suitable for all students, Oxbridge applicants find the mentorship particularly beneficial because of the extra complications and the wide range of college choices
My drive to win a place at Oxford meant that I was prepared to work hard. However, if it hadn’t been for the support and advice provided by Leading Education, I would not have known where to direct this energy.
