The Golden Circle is a leading provider of UK and US university admissions support. Students have an extremely high admissions rate and enjoy success at leading universities including Oxbridge, Stanford, MIT, St Andrews, Durham University, and London School of Economics, among others.

UK / Oxbridge

Applying to top UK universities is a very competitive process. This is why our UK university admissions advisors provide students with expert, individualised support on each of the five aspects of their applications:

University Selection

Our UK university consultants are former Oxbridge graduates and Admissions Officers. With only five UCAS choices, it’s important to have a university selection strategy that maximises your chances of success. Taking university reputation, course ranking, application criteria and location into account, we work with students to create the perfect UCAS shortlist.

Entrance Exams

Our top university graduates then comprehensively prepare students for aptitude tests such as the Medical Admissions Tests – BMAT/UCAT, Law Admissions Tests – LNAT and CLT, Thinking Skills Assessment – TSA, and Mathematics Aptitude Test – MAT, among others.

Personal Statement

A well-crafted, creative personal statement makes students stand out – and it’s the main piece of evidence that universities use when deciding who to invite to interviews. For this stage of the process, we pair students with Sixth Form Coordinators who have attended Oxbridge or Russell Group universities. Not only have they aced the personal statement themselves, but they have helped hundreds of students to craft their own for competitive degrees including Law, Medicine and Oxbridge.

Interview Preparation

In the 6 months preceding interview dates, we run mock interviews and teach effective interview strategies. Students are mentored to develop strong communication, independent thinking, and problem-solving skills. This approach leads to offers and places at high-ranking UK universities and medical schools.

US and Ivy League

Developed by Ivy League graduates, The Golden Circle’s SAT/ACT course is designed to maximise results and reduce study time. We conduct an initial assessment to evaluate each student’s strengths, areas for development, and provide a written report which sets timelines and goals for revision. Dedicated US admissions teachers support applicants to develop outstanding personal essays for competitive US schools.

Our Locations

Teachers are located in London, Manchester, Bristol, Oxford and Cambridge.

  • London

    In person lessons are offered across central London. Teachers deliver lessons in person to families who live in Zones 1-6 and within commutable distance from London. Additional travel charges may apply for those outside of the city. For families living outside of central London, we recommend working with an online tutor, booking full or half-day lessons, or blended learning - a combination of in person and online lessons.

  • The Rest Of The UK

    Including Manchester, Bristol, Oxford & Cambridge. Teachers deliver in person lessons in these cities. For families living in other parts of the UK, we recommend residential tuition. Residential tuition, ranging from several days to several weeks, is an immersive learning experience for students. Over the years, we have organised hundreds of residential placements to prepare students for exams. These intensive revision programmes accelerate learning and are a key part of student success.
