What South Africans don't realise about applying to study overseas!

Studying at a prestigious university in the US & UK is a dream for many South African students, however, South Africans are often unaware of what is required and how competitive the application process is. Getting accepted requires careful planning, preparation, a solid university application strategy, and access to expert tutors and mentors - all of which begins much earlier than your final grade 12 year!

South Africans struggle to reach the top 30 ranked universities in the world for the following reasons:

  • South African’s don’t realise the difference in requirements between SA & US/UK.
  • US/UK universities select students based on how they “show” they can fit in to what the university is looking for from a prospective student.
  • A large part of the application is based on a student’s profile outside of academic achievements.
  • Universities want students who show potential - are a good fit; have academic potential, are intellectually curious, are passionate and enthusiastic in their area/s of interest, are interesting people.
  • US universities are interested in students who focus on activities outside of the classroom, especially those that have a community impact and show leadership, not just volunteering and participation.
  • South African universities don’t place an emphasis on personal essays and personal statements or supplementary essays.
