Choosing a university and charting your course
Deciding which university to attend is one of the biggest decisions in a student’s life; and with over 300 universities in the UK and 3,000 in the US to choose from, it can be a daunting task. At EF International Academy we aim to make the process as straightforward and smooth as possible.
We have contacts with staff and admissions staff at a wide range of universities, who will give guest lectures and advise students about their applications. Students will also have opportunity to visit universities and attend open days.
Students aspiring to study medicine are given specialist advice and support to prepare for the extremely challenging entrance criteria. We help students research and identify suitable courses
and arrange visits to medical schools. All candidates for medical school need to have work experience in a medical setting and EF International Academy organises internships with local doctors and hospitals.
Oxbridge and Ivy League universities have extremely high expectations from applicants
To maximise the chance of successful application to Oxbridge, it is vital to have a sound knowledge of the individual colleges and courses, and to meet the early application deadlines which EF International Academy assists with every step of the way.
Our students succeed in university and beyond
University education in the UK and US has a strong emphasis on independent and self study skills. Students are expected to think for themselves, to take initiative and to organize their own work. Our small class sizes, challenging lessons and teaching methodologies enable students to develop these skills and feel confident in the type learning environment they will encounter at university.
