Event description


Harvard, Oxford, Stanford. Seulement trois universités qui peuvent changer la vie des gens. N’avez vous jamais songé à y étudier ? Vous pourriez….

Mais des centaines de milliers d'étudiants déposent un dossier d’admission pour ces universités, et seulement quelques milliers y sont admis.

Comment vous démarquez face à tous ces candidats ? Combien cela coutera-t-il ?

Ces questions arrêtent trop souvent les élèves et leurs parents, et on oublie le rêve d’étudier à l’étranger

C’est pourquoi cet évènement est important….

Nous vous apportons tout ce que vous devez savoir dans un séminaire superbe qui simplifiera le processus et répondra à chaque question que vous avez concernant les études en Amérique et au Royaume-Uni.

Mais …

  • Vous n'avez pas à le faire seul

  • Le processus n’est pas forcement difficile, intimidant, ou inaccessible

  • Vous êtes très doué, vous avez seulement besoin d'un tremplin pour résussir
  • Il est temps de repenser les possibilités

- English -

Harvard, Oxford, Stanford. Just three universities that change people’s lives. Have you ever thought about studying there? You could...

But hundreds of thousands of students apply to these top schools every year, and only a few thousand get in.

How will you stand out in a field of thousands?
Can you even afford it?

These questions stop students and their parents in their tracks and too often and the dream of studying overseas is forgotten.

That’s where this event steps in...

We’re bringing you everything you need to know in a one-stop, super seminar, which will uncomplicate the process and answer every single question you have about studying in the US or UK.

Here’s the thing…

  • You don’t have to do it alone

  • It doesn’t have to be complex, daunting or unachievable

  • You are good enough, you just need a catalyst for success

  • It’s time to re-imagine what’s possible

Check out some of the students living the dream

Why come?

The amount of information you need to create an application to top UK and US schools is endless and full of different opinions. You could spend months researching online and still not focus on the right factors needed to get your application across the line.

Why not take your lead from people who’ve been there, done that? Those who have got into the top schools multiple times and learned the inside tricks you need to stand out?

They parcel out the information in this easy-to-understand seminar where you’ll also be able to ask your burning questions. You’ll walk away with actionable next steps in taking your application to the next level.

It works. We know because we’ve hosted hundreds of these seminars and helped thousands of students achieve their dreams.
