Aiming for US Universities? Preparation Starts Now!

An on-demand Crimson Education webinar Download and watch on your time Ideal for students in years 10-13 and their parents

Early preparation is the key to success!

US universities attract thousands of international students every year and with low acceptance rates (like Harvard at 4.7%!) and fierce competition it isn’t easy to gain acceptance!

The key to standing out from the crowd is early preparation because a strong academic and extracurricular foundation can’t be developed overnight. The earlier you start building your profile, the greater your chance of success.

When assessing applications, admissions officers look for far more than just good grades; they seek evidence of innovative extracurricular engagement. Not only do your activities need to demonstrate your passions - they need to show your commitment over time. They also want to see evidence of leadership, they want students who take on responsibility and inspire those around them.

All these things take time to develop which is why age 14 is the best time to start!

In this on-demand webinar, we discover what admissions officers are looking for and what you can be doing now to improve your chance of standing out.

How Crimson can help

Applying to top US universities is a difficult and stressful 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 focussed support with each and every aspect of the process - from university selection to essay writing and SAT preparation.

By signing up for this webinar you will get a 1:1 university strategy meeting for you and your child with one of our expert Academic Advisors. They will review your child’s academic and extracurricular profile, provide tailored guidance as to suitable university pathways and outline what they need to do to achieve their goals.
