If you play your sport at a national level you can use it to help you gain acceptance to a top US university.
Every year, hundreds of students from the UK and Europe end up at schools across the NCAA and NAIA, training in the most elite facilities and competing in front of huge crowds, all the while earning an undergraduate degree.
But the journey is not easy. There may be 4 or 5 spots available at each university every year and coaches are fielding anything between 200-500 applications. There is also a lot to prepare, you need to produce a recruitment video showcasing your talent, prepare persuasive appeals to coaches and negotiate and navigate the scholarship system.
So how exactly can you make sure that you stand out? Join us and learn just that from the Jacinta Edmunds, NCAA D1 Rowing Champion and UC Berkeley Graduate.
There will be a live Q&A at the end of this webinar, so bring your questions to the table!
Please note that the recording of this event will only be available for attendees of the webinar.
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.
