University Preparation


University Preparation


Are you hoping for a place at a top university in the UK/US?

You’ve come to the right place!

It’s not easy. Top universities are looking for top students. Academic achievements are a great start. They will take you along the path and get you to the front door. But to open that door you will need a special set of keys. 

You need a well-written and very persuasive personal statement and the know-how to perform brilliantly in the interview… to even stand a chance!

There’s more. Once you make it through the door, your success depends on an array of learnable skills which, let’s face it, school simply doesn’t provide.

If you like risks, you can leave your chance of being accepted by a prestigious university to chance- but with acceptance rates being low- Oxford is around 6%, Harvard around 4.5% and LSE around 8.9% – you’re asking for unbelievable good fortune!

Instead of gambling your future away on long shots, why not do what more and more smart people are doing these days? Signing up for professional university preparation?

After 30 years of training students for access to university in English-speaking countries, Eurospeak has compiled course content which has been road-tested, tweaked, critically reviewed and perfected.

Eurospeak has also assembled a team of fully qualified teachers and a student-friendly timetable to bring you a course that does exactly what it claims.

Meet the Team


‘I have carried out over 800 mock university interviews and really worked out the secrets to a successful interview. I’ve also trained top CEOs and five star generals in presentation skills. One of the best things about a course like TopUni is how much students improve their skills in marketing themselves. This can open some big doors in life!’

William Barker- (Course Director) BSc Hons, PG Dip

‘I was born in the United States and went through my bachelor’s and first master’s degree there. Ultimately, my passion for travel and education pushed me to pursue another master’s degree as an international student in the UK, an experience I wouldn’t trade for the world. Studying abroad can be a difficult but hugely rewarding experience!’

Kelsea Mucherino (Course Director)- BA, MA

‘Since childhood I’ve been obsessed with power of the written word. Studying Linguistics at a high level, I’ve formed my own theories about language use. For Top Uni I teach Academic Writing.I love watching students develop the ability to write top class essays that include strong supporting arguments and all the skills they have learned in Critical Thinking.’

Gonzalo Galian Lopez MA- Phd student

 

‘I have been passionate about education all my life. I remember being excited about learning as a child. One of the most useful things I have learned is the importance of outside help. For me mentorship is the real secret weapon for high achievers. I recommend students write a high-quality personal statement. It can open the door to a top university and help you find employment.’

Boubecar- Msc

‘I’ve lived in 12 countries, but the UK is my home. I’ve written numerous articles on philosophy. So many people fail to realize the benefits of Critical Thinking. It is essential for university and for life in general. Knowing how to present a sound argument and to spot the flaw in another’s argument can be the difference between a pass and a fail’

Darren Allen BA

IAG Service

As part of our university preparation, we offer a free IAG service.

What is IAG? It stands for Information, Advice and Guidance. This means we will provide students, prospective students and even enquirers with the very best IAG so that they can make the best choices about university preparation. 

We offer three official IAG sessions with our experienced trainers. These sessions are designed to help you slim down your options and make informed decisions about tertiary education. This could be about which university, which course, and the application process. If you need skills for university interviews, writing personal statements or some of the academic skills needed for university entrance, we can provide training and/or signpost you to the appropriate agencies.

We take our IAG service seriously and aim to give accurate and impartial information, advice and guidance on a range of options for you.

Please ask us about IAG so that you can make the right choices about your future.
