How it Works

Our applications service includes a comprehensive support package which consists of nine elements, tailored to your needs and subject area, and it is designed to assist students applying to PhD programmes in English-language universities across the UK, US, Australia, and more. We usually recommend applying to 5 - 7 universities to give yourself the best possible chances of success.

Consultation Session

You will start with a 60-minute Zoom call with a leading academic in your field. This introductory session is specifically designed to gain information about your academic background in order to fully understand your requirements and to discuss your application strategy and goals.

University Recommendations

You will be sent a personalised 1000-1500 word report, based on what was discussed with your academic. It will include a curated list of 5 universities, recommended based on criteria such as academic reputation, location, and funding opportunities. You will also receive a list of one potential professor for each university, including their academic profile page.

Letter of Introduction

Your academic will put together customised letters of introduction to be sent to the professors identified in the previous step, enhancing your chances of securing a supervisor for your PhD research project.

Funding Support

You will receive a 1000-word report providing tailored advice on institutional and national scholarships and sponsorships which may be available for the universities previously shortlisted.

CV Enhancement

A well-crafted and comprehensive CV is an integral part of your PhD application. You will benefit from a comprehensive professional edit of your CV which will highlight your academic achievements and potential.

Personal Statement

As part of our fully comprehensive package, your academic will work on a personal statement tailored to your scholarly profile and also drafts of any required essays, making sure that your application truly stands out.
