    Dreaming of top UK universities? Academic excellence alone is not enough! What distinguishes successful candidates from others is their mastery of interview skills and the ability to write compelling applications. You now have an exceptional opportunity to succeed because these skills will be taught during the "Guiding you on the path to top UK Universities" Programme at YCYW Somerset Cultural Centre, UK, organised by the Careers & University Guidance Office (CUGO).


    The programme brings together top academic staff from prestigious UK universities, such as the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, and the University of Bath, as well as highly skilled and experienced CUGO leaders and other specialists. “Students will meet the UK-based expert CUGO team, but they will also meet admissions experts and academics from a number of top UK universities. But perhaps most important, Dr Matt Williams, the world's leading expert on the University of Oxford admissions,” said Nicholas Strong, the Head of CUGO. Through intellectually challenging and stimulating workshops, this diverse team will help students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in university applications.

    Our programme has an interdisciplinary approach and introduces you to the university study's distinctive environment and pedagogy. We also focus on building intellectual confidence and curiosity by exposing you to different university and learning environments. By the end of the programme, you will be equipped with the skills, knowledge, experience, and judgment to write compelling applications, perform well in interviews and multiple mini-interviews (MMls), and know how to make an excellent impression on admissions committees. Furthermore, you will have the unique opportunity to stay at the YCYW Somerset Cultural Centre in Knowle Hall, a historic manor house in the picturesque countryside.


    “This will be an invaluable insight into the complex process of applying for elite universities and highly competitive UK degrees. The Somerset programme includes the following visits to a number of G5 and Russell Group universities sessions with admission staff from top UK universities, including the University of Oxford, offering one-to-one advice on personal statements and preparation for university interviews and appropriate cultural events designed to help students understand the UK education and culture,” he said


    Programme offers to YCIS Year 11/Year 12 students, and limited places available.
