02. Admissions Test Prep

Some European universities will require standardized exams, like the SAT or ACT. Developed by Harvard grads, PhDs and top tutors from around the world, Crimson’s SAT/ACT courses reduce your study time while maximising your results. Other universities, like Bocconi, will require a specific entrance exam, and others still will need you to write an aptitude-specific examination.

04. Motivation Letters Support

Your motivational letters - depending on your desired course and university - hold a great deal of importance. Crimson provides expert advice and guidance in crafting whatever letters need to be written. That's why we provide every student with a specialist essay mentor — someone who has graduated from a top university themselves and knows what admissions officers are looking for. We help you detail exactly how your major will serve your future career plans, and we can assist you in carving out a compelling personal narrative that will help you stand head and shoulders above the other applicants.

05. Interview Preparation

When it comes to Europe, the interview provides a crucial chance to impress your target universities. But what will they ask you and how do you prepare?

Crimson’s experienced interview mentors will walk you through all possible question scenarios, undertaking mock interviews and showing you how you can shine in a limited period of time — both in answering the questions you are asked, and coming up with relevant university-specific questions you can ask in return.
