United Kingdom

UK education stresses upon academic passion. Our team of 140 consultants and subject specific tutors help students identify and enhance their academic interests and ability to pursue their subject and university of desire. We cover 38 subjects, ranging from the popular Medicine, Law and Economics to niche subjects such as Anthropology, Classics etc. For already strong students, we enhance their chances for success by giving them exposure and practice with the additional exams required at top institutions. For students with weaker academic profiles, we explore alternative pathways and provide comprehensive support throughout the preparation path in pursuit of their aspiration.

Case Studies

Boarding School

Kiran

Westminster & Winchester

International School to UK Boarding

Kiran came to ARCH as his sister (now in Wycombe Abbey) was also our student on Socrates. As Kiran's english needed enhancement, he joined our Critical Reading and Writing programs, supplemented with 1-on-1 online tutoring. Kiran was also tutored by a residential teacher we recruited for the family. We extended some interview preparation to Kiran though we are adamant the best "interview preparation" would be to immerse students in mind-stimulating group classes where they discuss and exchange ideas in a more natural way.

University

Laetitia

University College London (Management & PCLL Law)

Local School to Foundation to Top UK Universities

Laetitia came to us with C, D, U in her A-Levels; and had expressed interest to become a lawyer – not any lawyer but one with a top university certificate. We identified various bridging programs for her and recommended her to pursue a quality Foundation Program. At the same time we enhanced her academic profile, engaged her in an enriching community service project, guided her through the drafting of personal statement, and prepared her for interviews. Laetitia later attended UCL for her undergraduate Management degree and we later supported her with postgraduate law conversion course and PCLL applications. We are so happy she is now pursuing her dream applying to become a Law Trainee at top law firms!

Students' Successful Pathways to Oxbridge

From Local School to Benenden to Oxford

By A.H.

I have started attending ARCH since 2011. Started off participating in ARCH’s Socrates and its creative writing programme, ARCH has already distinguished itself from any other tutorial centres with its interactive and rewarding learning experience that I’ve got.
I then successfully applied to Benenden School, a top UK girls boarding school, with a scholarship through ARCH. And I’m proud to say that ARCH’s support to my academic life didn’t stop there – ARCH also helped me make my Oxford dream into reality. My experience at ARCH can be summed up with three words - ‘Understanding, Attentive, Comprehensive’. To me, ARCH is way more than just an educational institute, it is a place where my academic interests are sparked, a place that witnessed and assisted my transformation throughout my academic journey. After spending more than 6 years attending ARCH’s lessons, I am confident in saying that every single teacher put every student’s interest to heart.

How I Got into Cambridge Law

By K.W.

Back in 2011 when I was Form 3, I first participated in ARCH’s Socrates program. Socrates classes have taught me how to think out of the box and gave me a diverse perspective of the world which conventional education lacks.
I also joined ARCH’s debate and mock trial classes which gave me fundamental techniques and more importantly immense confidence when I later represented my school in inter-school competitions. In the following summer, ARCH gave me the opportunity to join a Law Summer Program at Oxford which further sparked my academic interest in Law. From interview preparation to aptitude test training, ARCH has identified my strengths and needs and tailor-made programs that best suit me. ARCH’s personal approach also gave me extra confidence and reassurance during my application process and led me to actualize my dream of getting into Cambridge.

Testimonials

The excellent comments and thorough guidance I obtained made the application process much less daunting. I would definitely not have been able to obtain an offer from my dream college without ARCH's help!

F.Y.
Cambridge Law & University of Pennsylvania acceptance

ARCH provided all-rounded guidance in every element of the application process.  Both my academic and presentation ability was greatly enhanced through tailor-made sessions, and the intensiveness and effectiveness of all work were impressive. The tutors, Oxbridge alumni or students, truly understood my needs and shared with me their invaluable experiences.  All these made my application a really fruitful process with a successful outcome. I am so grateful that ARCH encouraged me to start this journey and offered the most appropriate support.
