Preparation (Age 16-18)


These university preparation programmes are for students aged 16 – 18 with a minimum English level of B1*.  They are aimed at motivated students who strive to be the best when it comes to university applications and interviews.  They aim to instill knowledge, confidence and a focus on the future and encourages students to gain confidence in the sometimes life changing decisions they have to make at this time.

Even for the brightest students, getting into the top universities can be extremely hard.  As well as increasingly tough entry requirements there is now more competition than ever for very limited places and the application process can be a daunting task.

Using Concord’s knowledge of what it takes to give students that extra edge, and our extensive academic network, we have developed a series of outstanding two week residential university preparation programmes.
