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. Am I good enough?
  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 speaker: Parker Abt - University of Pennsylvania

Parker is one of the top tutors at Crimson Education, teaching SAT for over 200 hours since starting with us in 2015. Parker is a third year student at the University of Pennsylvania (Ivy League) studying history. He grew up in Miami and attended a public high school, where he graduated in the top 1% of his class and achieved a perfect score on the SAT’s reading section and near-perfect scores on the maths and writing sections.

Parker earned the top score of 5 on eleven AP exams, for which he was awarded National AP Scholar. Outside of the classroom, Parker is a prolific writer, authoring articles in such diverse publications as The Washington Post, Newsweek, the Michigan Journal of History, and Ultimate-Guitar. He has also worked in Washington DC, researching public policy for the US Congress.
