My
Packages

I only work with applicants who have achieved at least upper second-class marks on their most recent degree (2:1 in the UK, 3.5/4.0 GPA or equivalent elsewhere).

current turnaround time: 48 hours from our “intro session” conversation

Β£200

What to expect:

  1. You book a 15-minute “intro session” Zoom call at the link below to discuss your background and motivations for applying with me. Don’t worry, I don’t bite! πŸ™‚
  2. When you book your intro session, you will also upload your personal statement draft as well as a CV and any subject-access requests on previous failed applications, if applicable.
  3. After our intro session call, I review your personal statement draft along with the context you’ve provided me.
  4. I return my feedback to you in written form within 48 hours of our intro session.

Perfect if:

  • You are applying for a Master’s or PhD in any discipline at a university in the US or UK.
  • You are seeking expert feedback on your personal statement for your postgraduate application or a scholarship (does not need to be an application to Oxbridge).
  • You have a clear idea of your research/study interests and goals but need guidance on articulating them effectively.
  • You have a CV and, if applicable, subject-access requests on previous failed applications to provide context.

This is not for you if:

  • You haven’t achieved the minimum required academic qualifications defined above.
  • You are looking for a comprehensive review of your entire application (see below for that!).
  • You don’t have a personal statement draft.
  • You are applying within a specialised field such as business, law, or medicine – I do not have expertise in these fields and therefore would not be able to assist you to the standard I would like!
