Event description

Description

Are you in Year 9, 10, 11 or 12 and want to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself? Or are you a parent with children who are itching to explore the world?

Gaining admission to the world's top-ranked universities in the US and UK is more achievable than you think!

Since 2015, Crimson Education has supported students from Australia and New Zealand to secure 90 offers to Ivy League schools, 26 to Oxford and Cambridge and more than 300 offers to the top 50 schools in the US.

Parents and students, come to the US & UK University Seminar and Application Workshop to get answers to five big questions:

  1. How are US & UK universities different?
  2. How do I apply?
  3. How do I gain admission to top universities?
  4. How much does it cost?
  5. How do I choose which university to apply to?

Other points include:

  • The benefits of studying overseas - employability, experience, independence, networking and more
  • The common reasons Australian students apply overseas
  • Which students get accepted into Ivy League schools and/or Oxford/Cambridge?
  • Strategies for applying and how to use local universities as a fallback option
  • Common mistakes Australian students make when applying to overseas universities
  • Timeline for applications
  • How to balance the application process and final year studies
  • Information for parents including university support and safety
  • How Crimson Education works, the team you could be working with and where to find more information.

Keynote Speakers

Jamie Beaton

When Jamie was at highschool in Auckland, he spent all his spare time for two years researching how to get into top US and UK universities. He applied to 25 universities including Princeton, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, UPenn and Stanford and was accepted into all of them.

Many of his friends who applied weren't so lucky. The problem? They simply didn't know what the admissions officers were looking for. It was through this experience that Jamie started Crimson Education from his Harvard dorm room at age 18 to help aspiring students navigate the application process.

Jamie is now a 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 awardee, Harvard alumni and recently spoke at the UN in New York on addressing poverty through education.
