Event description

Description

The university you attend will change the course of your life. How high are you aiming?


Top UK universities are centres of academic excellence and produce world-leading research. Their graduates are some of the most successful worldwide.

The only problem is, the best universities attract the best talent and there's simply not enough room for everyone.

The application process is highly competitive but gaining admission is still possible, especially if you have the right guidance.

At this talk, Crimson Education Experts Matthew (St. Andrews alumni) and Carina (Columbia/Edinburgh alumni & Managing Director of Crimson Education in the UK) will cover:

  • How admission officers assess their applicants

  • How extracurriculars can help you get into your dream school

  • The universities to aim for

  • The employment, career and internship opportunities available to UK university students

  • The strengths of top UK universities

  • The structure of UK university degrees

  • The university lifestyle

  • How to apply to UK universities - exam scores, essays, interviews, case studies and more


Speakers:


Matthew Roberts | University of St. Andrews




Matthew studied philosophy at the University of St. Andrews, most recently researching the nature of consciousness and other topics within the philosophy of cognitive science. A recipient of awards for his writing, Matthew intends to go on to study at PhD level and eventually enter academia. He is currently working on a book aimed at naturalising the faculty of creativity. Matthew is an academic advisor with Crimson, assisting students and parents on the best route forward for maximising opportunities at University level. An expert on the admissions process, he helps mentor students to get into their dream university.


Carina Cunha | Columbia University, University of Edinburgh


Carina is the Managing Director of Crimson Education in the UK. In addition to managing the UK Team, Carina supports the expansion of Crimson's presence in Europe by overseeing sales, marketing and partnerships in other regional markets such as Ireland, Switzerland and Scandinavia. Carina holds a B.A. in Economics and Political Science from Columbia University, where she graduated a year earlier than expected, and a Postgraduate degree in Differential Psychology from the University of Edinburgh. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Carina sees education as the most fundamental tool to enable personal growth and have a global impact. Carina’s background in Investment Banking (Credit Suisse), Wealth Management (JPMorgan) and Management Consulting (Accenture) has helped her spearhead a number of educational initiatives such as the partnership with ETC (Educating The Children), NISCA (Northern Ireland Schools and Colleges Careers Association), MOTC (Masters Avenue), Fulbright, and the International School of Geneva. Through her work with Crimson, Carina has helped hundreds of students achieve their academic and career goals.
