How it works:
Our comprehensive offering is divided into 5 modules. Whilst many students complete all of the modules, this provides flexibility for students to select the modules that meet their needs. All programmes are delivered 1-to-1 to ensure a completely bespoke experience for each student.
Module 1: Application Management
A Keystone consultant will provide a dedicated point of contact and oversight of the student’s application. The consultant will advise on course and college choices and thereafter support the student throughout the application process, managing deadlines and assisting with the completion of the UCAS form (excluding the personal statement which is included within module 4).
Module 2: Guided Reading and Specialist Knowledge
Specifically aimed at those applicants applying to Oxbridge: Through following our guided reading programme applicants will read broadly around their chosen subject. Within these sessions, a dedicated subject specialist tutor will discuss the themes and ideas that underpin the applicant’s chosen subject, and advise on suitable books and other materials to explore. Having identified particular areas of interest in the subject the tutor will then move the sessions towards developing more specialist knowledge, where the applicant will then deepen his/her expertise in this area, allowing them to make it a central part of the personal statement as well as the interview process. We recommend 10 x 1.5 hour sessions with
a specialist tutor.
Module 3: Test Prep Programme
This intensive course will provide coaching for aptitude tests that will underpin an applicant’s application. We will provide a tutor who has expert knowledge of the relevant test (e.g. EAA, ENGAA, LNAT, TSA, UCAT etc.). We recommend 20 x 1.5 hour sessions with a specialist tutor.
Module 4: Personal Statement Drafting
The applicant will be provided with guidance on drafting their personal statement. Expert members of our team will review iterations of the personal statement, providing practical feedback and guidance on how to ensure it represents the candidate in the best possible light.
Please Note: We recommend up to 10 reviews and only provide feedback on drafts; we are unable to redraft or rewrite anything on behalf of the student, as the personal statement must be the student’s own work.
Module 5: Interview Preparation
We recommend three mock interviews, conducted by expert tutors who are familiar with the requirements of the interview process for Oxbridge and other courses requiring interviews (such as medicine).
