Event description


Do you dream of graduating from a top US or UK University?

First, you have to get yourself accepted into these schools. The competition is fierce and you’re up against the world’s best academic achievers.

But we can help you get an edge on the competition and land you a spot at top selective schools like Stanford, the Ivy League, Oxford and Cambridge.

We know what it takes to maximise your efforts and show admissions officers why you’re an unmissable candidate on any application.

That’s why we’re hosting the "Cracking Top US and UK Universities" seminar on the 21st of October at the Suntec Convention Centre. We’ll give you the most concise, relevant, and trusted information you need to know about applying for and studying in the US and UK. We have gathered top experts who have the best understanding of international admissions and applicants from Singapore.

If you miss this, you’re on your own against the single-digit acceptance rates at these universities and programs. So why not let us help you improve the odds?

So what is this event about?

This two hour seminar features comprehensive talks by experts and guest speakers who have themselves graduated from competitive US and UK universities. There will also be information booths by exhibitors who specialise in admissions consulting.
