The leading London education consultancy announced the launch of a new initiative this week and is seeking talented international students to be awarded coveted school and university placement packages in the UK.

Star of the Year 2019 will be the first of an annual competition to attract entrants of school and university age around the world to receive a full school or university consultancy programme, with all tutoring fees also granted to the winner. Each year will see a school placement winner – for students aged at the main entry levels of 11, 13, and 16 – and also a university level winner, who will be awarded entry into a UK undergraduate placement.

We will be working in partnership with all kinds of schools during this process, so applicants don’t, necessarily, have to be brainy or academic – just passionate, talented, and hard-working. We are interested in super-bright, arty, creative, sporting, and also more vocational students.”

Entrants will be required to;

  • Be eligible to be educated in the UK and have appropriate visa permissions

  • Complete a 750-word supporting essay on any academic subject and how it relates to their future career ambitions
  • Enclose an up-to-date copy of their CV

Stephen Spriggs added:
“We want to use this opportunity to connect with a diverse range of talented students, and to give more children from all walks of life a shot at the school or university of their dreams. We also welcome the opportunity to partner with more key schools and universities in the UK and showcase the very best British education has to offer to families at home and overseas.
