Map Dukes Consultancy 14 – 16 Waterloo Place, London, SW1Y 4AR

The UK has a global reputation for quality university education, with many institutions ranked among the best in the world.

Increasing competition for places at top UK and Russell Group universities can make applying a challenge, particularly among international students.

Our expertise helps students produce personal statements that will distinguish them from the competition, gain relevant work experience and develop their skills in extra admissions tests such as the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT). Applicants can also benefit from long-term subject mentoring to help them excel at interview and bridge the gap between Sixth Form study and undergraduate study.

Our UK & Russell Group Application Consultancy Services

Dukes Education offers prospective applicants one-to-one guidance and practical, hands-on support through a series of consultations. We provide personal and impartial expertise that ultimately leads to students receiving offers that meet their long term aims and lead to a fulfilling experience at university.

Private Consultations

This one-hour session is an excellent starting point. Students and their families will meet with an expert to identify and answer all their major questions, and begin to build a strategy for a successful application round. These consultations take place over Skype™, or in our London offices, and cost £295.

Long-Term Application Support

Through a tailored programme of one-to-one consultations, we will provide practical support and advice in key areas such as:

University choices - entry requirements - the IELTS - location - accommodation and fees - application procedure - deadlines - writing the personal statement - information on supplementary entry tests - references - interview skills and training - Open Days - the final selection.

Prices are dependent upon the level of support required and can be discussed in the Private Consultation.

Complete Guidance At Every Stage Of Applying To UK Universities

Our application guidance is always tailored to the specific needs of the student, their subject interests, and the areas in which they feel they need most support. For most clients, this will include the following core areas of support.

University Selection

Our private support programme helps students to identify universities and courses which will allow them to realise their career aspirations. We examine many factors such as location, size and culure to enable students to find those particular academic and pastoral environments that allow them to flourish.

Personal Statements

Our experts have read thousands of Personal Statements, and therefore know how students can distinguish themselves from the competition. We guide applicants on what to include, and what they can undertake to improve their appeal on paper. For Fine Arts applicants, we provide a thorough portfolio review service.

Languages & Admissions Tests

We support students through the IELTS or equivalent language tests, as well as to develop their skills in admissions tests such as the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT). Our tutors focus on techniques for time-efficiency and test theory to appeal to each student's particular strengths.


Applicants can also benefit from long-term subject mentoring to help them push beyond Sixth Form study and excel at interview. Candidates who can communicate their passion and aptitude for their subject to university Admissions Tutors can improve their chances of being invited to study there.

All bookings are taken over the phone with a consultant. There is a list of appointments below, but if these do not suit your schedule, we will endeavour to accommodate you at another time. These sessions are most suitable for students over 15 who are achieving highly in school exams.
