For Students Applying to a University Outside the UK

The International University Advice Service is designed to help students who wish to apply to a university outside of the UK. 

For students wishing to apply to a University in the UK, please visit our UK Universities Advice Service page.

The global admissions process has grown increasingly complex and there are significant differences in the requirements between countries. In order to reduce stress, and avoid wasting time and money, it is important for families to have a clear understanding of what will be required of applicants from the outset. 

Many homeschoolers welcome advice on a variety of questions as they consider international university options:

  • What subjects should I take at A Level?
  • What co curricular and extra curricular activities should I be considering?
  • What are the application requirements of different countries?
  • When should I start the application process?
  • What forms will I need to complete?
  • What should I write in my application essays, personal statement and/or CV?
  • How can I apply for scholarships and financial aid?
  • Do I need to take SAT, ACT and English Language tests?
  • How can I best present my homeschooling experience to institutions?

Our International University Advice Service will guide you every step of the way: from A Level choices, constructing a University shortlist, through to completing the wide range of application forms you may need to complete.

Please note that the University Advice Service is only available to students enrolled with Wolsey Hall, or as part of our ongoing Admissions process.
