CHARTERS EDUCATION SUPPORT
We offer a package of long-term assistance covering the entire application process and we also offer a personal statement planning service. A key element of our service is getting to know the student and his or her experience and aspirations so that the application can be tailored to be the best for that student.
Personal Statement Planning
Help with the area which students dread the most, using a carefully explained structure and ensuring that the statement stands out.
Although there is certainly no magic formula which makes up the perfect statement, there is certainly a structure which can help students to write the best statement they can.
University Application Guidance
Help with everything from subject and institution choice through to suggested reading and deciding which offers to accept.
We steer students through the application process, from the first conversation about the choice of degree subject, through to writing the personal statement and submitting the application form.
We offer packages starting in either the first or second term of Year 12 or its equivalent.
For students abroad, all services can be done successfully via a mixture of Skype and email
