How to best support your child and their university dreams

Between the ages of 16 and 18 is the most stressful period of your child’s life to date. They’ll be in the midst of their A-Levels or IB whilst also applying to university. If your child is ambitious and is looking to the US they’ll have even more to prep for.

Applying to top US universities is no easy feat. With academic scores, standardised testing, extracurricular activities, and personal branding all playing an important role in any competitive application, students must work hard and be supported practically and emotionally.

But how do you do that with no real support from school and no prior knowledge of the journey ahead?

Harriet was in the same position 2 years ago when her son Liam told her that he wanted to apply to the US, she had many questions. However, with determination and the support of Crimson Education, they navigated the journey successfully, and Liam gained a place at the prestigious Yale University.

Hear from Harriet in this on-demand webinar as she shares Liam’s university journey from her perspective. Find out how you can support your child in their journey to top US universities!

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.
