The benefits of studying at Stanford

What is Stanford University looking for?

Situated in sunny California, Stanford is one of the great heavyweights on the US college scene. It has a phenomenal reputation for computer science and engineering as well as entrepreneurship, due to its proximity to Silicon Valley.

However, Stanford is as competitive as it is popular, so it's essential to stand out if you're planning to apply. Whilst strong academics are important, students must also demonstrate extracurricular engagement and clear personal qualities. In short, good grades are not enough!

If you would like to know whether you have what it takes to impress Stanford admissions officers, book a complimentary consultation with the Crimson team today. Our experienced Academic Advisors will review your profile, explain the application process and how you can improve your chance of gaining entry to an elite US university like Stanford.
