The benefits of studying at MIT

What is MIT looking for?

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is widely known as a centre for scientific and technological research. Situated in Boston, MA, it attracts students who excel in maths, science and engineering and challenges them above and beyond what they might've thought possible so that they are primed to go on and make the world a better place.

Each year, thousands of ambitious students apply for a place at MIT, and in 2022 only 1.4% of international students got accepted. The competition is notoriously fierce, with many applicants having published research papers and achieved gold medals in International Maths Olympiads. So, how do you know if you have what it takes to compete? Book a complimentary university strategy meeting with the Crimson team today and find out!


Crimson is here to help!

Applying to top universities is a difficult task which is why so many students seek external support.

Each of our programmes* are tailored to the student and are delivered by a carefully selected team of mentors who provide focused support with every aspect of the process.

We are proud to say that students who work with us are up to 4x as likely to get into their dream university than those who apply alone.

By speaking to one of our Academic Advisors you can expect:

  • To discuss student/parent goals, as well as how Crimson can support across specific areas of candidacy enhancement
  • Detailed recommendations on which Crimson’s services would be beneficial to consider, including an outline of fees
  • Focused conversation around what to expect from a bespoke Crimson programme

*All Crimson services are conducted in English.
