Admission to top universities

Given how competitive admission to top universities is, Inspired has introduced partnerships that will give students an even greater opportunity to earn a coveted place at the leading university of their choice.

Inspired is proud to partner exclusively with renowned leaders in US and UK university admissions counselling, Arete Education and The Classroom Door, with preferential rates for all Inspired students.


Arete Educational Consulting: Ignite the future

Arete Educational Consulting is a full-service tutoring and educational consulting company. Their goal is to help students of all ages fulfil their dreams – from helping students raise their SAT score by 300 points, to gaining admission to an Ivy League university. The additional support enables students to build long-term relationships with learning that will help them maintain and expand their newfound academic prowess in their future studies.

Getting into a top US or UK university is no easy feat; Inspired’s partnership with Arete offers customised packages that are tailored to each student’s strengths, making the application process easier. Students using Arete are allocated a dedicated counsellor several years prior to the application process, to advise them on summer jobs, extra-curricular participation, and anything else that, if prepared well in advance, will ensure the best chance of standing out in such a competitive field.

Arete coaches are committed to inspiring academic excellence and building confidence in their students. They will identify – and help remove – any roadblocks that may prevent students from achieving the university placement of their dreams.

In addition to college counselling, Arete offers languages, mathematics, science, humanities and study skills classes. Additionally, they provide college and university entrance exam tuition, including specialised classes for the SATs.
