college planning

The first step to realising your academic aspirations.


Whether you’re at the beginning of your college career or setting your sights on an Executive MBA, putting together a quality application requires a clear and targeted strategy. 

College planning takes time, effort and patience and it is the first and most crucial step of a long process that can even span a year. Procrastination is the number one enemy here and we are here to jumpstart the process now.

How can We Help?

Tapping on our team’s hivemind, we’ll guide you through the entire process of researching schools and selecting the best programs, along with choosing the correct standardized tests and managing your application deadlines.

Developing Your College Shortlist

There are hundreds of thousands of colleges and universities globally and millions of courses of study. So, where do you begin looking? And no, it is not wise to do mindless wandering on Google. We will work with you to zoom in on your reach, target and safety schools that are aligned with your personal, academic and professional goals.

Besides looking at how universities fare on global top 100 lists, consider looking at subject rankings too: Times Higher Education, QS. Did you know that the National University of Singapore takes the top spot for Petroleum Engineering? After all, academic quality, rigour and reputation can largely define your university experience.

Creating an Admissions Plan

What do I need to apply? And am I too late? We’d be super rich if we had gotten a penny every time someone had asked these questions. As an admissions coach, nothing is more difficult than telling a student that they’ve missed the boat this year. This is exactly why drafting an admissions plan with key application deadlines is of paramount importance. To avoid unnecessary last-minute panic, our consultants are here to monitor the progress of your applications and highlight potential pitfalls at various stages of the process.

Different countries, schools within those countries, and courses within those schools can all have varying deadlines and requirements. The more organized you are, the less likely you are to miss something crucial.
