We can help you with every aspect; from finding a university, choosing a program and all the way through the application process.
Across the Pond can offer this unique free service because our funding is provided from the British universities that have appointed us to represent them in Canada. This means we can offer students a choice in terms of programs, institutions and geographical locations in the UK.
No we cannot. All final decisions are made by the Admissions team at each university and decisions are based on your own academic qualifications, standardized test results, personal statement and reference, and in some cases, a portfolio of work or audition tape. However we believe that by using our service you will increase your chances of acceptance, because we make sure that you are applying to universities that match your subject preferences and academic ability.
