Building on our successful roadshow in South East Asia in September our Director, Tim and Head of Courses and Events, Ebba will be welcoming all IB students to events across the Middle East, UK and Europe. Our IB & UCAS Roadshow is an invaluable opportunity to take advantage of free advice and guidance on applying through UCAS to the top UK Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Whether you’re just starting the Diploma or entering your final year, our presentation is designed to provide you with an in depth insight on the IB, UCAS and Oxbridge, and how the Programme is viewed by the top UK Universities.
Throughout the presentation you will be guided by our expert University Consultants through the application process, including:
- IB subject selection
- Using your Extended Essay to strengthen your personal statement
- Personal statement support
- Course selection advice
- University and College selection advice
- Prepping for interviews
Often getting an outside perspective, from a current undergraduate or recent graduate, can offer immeasurable value to your application. As they’re immersed in the University or College, they can provide you with additional advice on current research trends and interests, and what will catch the admission tutor’s eye.
There have also been many changes to the UCAS tariff weighting system this year. This has given greater respect to the top IB grades and the hard work achieving these requires. You, therefore, need to consider how these changes may affect your application and our expert consultants can guide you through the application process, and how to draw on your strengths and those of studying the Diploma.
So, where are we gathering our expertise from? Not only do we hire recent high-achieving graduates from the UK’s top universities, but we have interviewed and supported countless IB Graduates from over 300 schools preparing for their final exams and university applications. This has given not only a comprehensive understanding of what IB students need to do and prepare for, but unique insight into how to prep for subject courses from Engineering to English, and Physics to Psychology.
As the application process can often be confusing as you’re presented with a whole new vocabulary of phrases and acronyms, part of our presentation will be focused on demystifying these terms and giving you a firm understanding of what these mean. Next, you’ll gain knowledge of what a University offer is, what it looks like and how different institutions might present them.
You need to be aware of the application timetable as well. Don’t forget, for example, that Medical (including Dentistry and Veterinary) and Oxbridge applications have to be in on the 15th October, while the final UCAS submission deadline is the 15th January.
In the meantime, we have several brilliant resources to help you through the IBDP:
- UCAS IB entry requirements spreadsheet for the UK’s top 50 internationally ranked universities
- The IB calendar
- The IB Bible
Please get in touch if you would like any of the above, all are available on request.
