The importance of a competitive profile
British universities are always searching for traces of motivation and passion for the chosen degree and take this as the differentiating factor between candidates with similar grades. For this reason, we procure that our pupils build their own initiative and progressively become more interested in the subjects they are taking. We move away from the “just learn it” method and expect our students to understand the purpose of things.
Having a range of extracurricular activities and hobbies, even if not directly related to your chosen degree is also a good proof of aptitudes like proactivity, experience or communication skills. These are vital compliments of a successful degree and are more valued every year.
It is extremely difficult nowadays to become a competitive university candidate without gathering a list of “soft skills” and experience beyond academic requirements.
At Think Ahead we advise our students about the best possible decisions they can make in order to develop a solid profile adapted to the university requirements:
- Guiding them through the university admissions process.
- Providing updated information about university experience in order assure a degree choice that suits their expectations.
- Recommending work experience, activities and initiatives that will improve the competitiveness of their academic profile.
