UK University Consulting at Wentworth Education

UCAS is the gateway to applying to all UK universities. It can seem bewildering, demonstrating the prerequisites to apply to each course, and the strategy of where to apply can be challenging. Wentworth Education can help you navigate this process, and even prepare for interviews.

Overview of Wentworth's UK University Consulting

Wentworth Education offer a bespoke service to students looking for support in applying to UK universities. Our experienced consultants can guide you from A level choices, to writing your personal statement, and even give advice on what extra curricular activities would boost your application to a particular course.

Oxbridge Preparation

Applying to Oxford and Cambridge is one of the most daunting experiences a student faces in their final year of school. Although these prestigious institutions require both excellent academic results and strong personal statements, the interview is the true test. Wentworth’s experienced consultants can advise on what to expect in the interview, what interviews are looking for, and how best to demonstrate your ability and approach the interview. Moreover, Wentworth can help arrange mock Oxbridge interviews, with teachers and academics.

How to Apply to the UK for University from International Schools

An application to the UK for university is deceptively simple. All applications pass through UCAS, an online portal, where students submit their grades from national exams, predicted grades, and one essay. Students can select up to 6 schools, 4 if applying for medicine. The deadline for applications is 15 October for Oxford or Cambridge, and 01 January for all other universities. Only Oxford and Cambridge interview students, although UCL and Imperial do ask for further information to be submitted. Decisions are primarily based on the grades and essay, and students notified on a rolling basis from October / November through February / March. Offers may be conditional upon final exam grades in the IB, A level, or AP systems. As a result of the simplicity of this application process, we encourage students to apply! Of course, Oxford and Cambridge conduct academic interviews which are challenging and require preparation.

Exam Tutoring for School Levers: A Levels, Pre U, and IB

Once the interview has been completed, one of Wentworth’s team of consultants will continue to mentor and guide students through our UK university application service to ensure that they are on track for the right grades at A Level or IB. The consultant can also arrange additional Wentworth tuition if the student needs help reaching the high standard of results Oxford and Cambridge require of their students.

Medical School Applications

Wentworth also specialises in helping with medical school applications. We work with numerous medical students and doctors, all of whom are attending or have attended elite medical schools in the UK or US.
