CATS Global Schools specialise in teaching international students from the ages of 14 to 18, focusing on university preparation through A-Levels, foundation programmes and the international baccalaureate. It was founded in 1952 and has since developed into a prestigious institution with a very high rate of offers to both Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities.
Students begin with an initial counselling session to help you choose from the options on offer and ensure that your choices will allow you to fulfill your ambitions. Parents receive a 'settling in' report within a students first week of term and further reports throughout your time at CATS Global Schools. Students are also tested weekly to ensure that they are making the progress they need, and so that extra tuition can be arranged where necessary.
Almost all students graduating from CATS Global Schools gain places on university degree courses. At CATS you can expect:
Upon arrival, all students take part in an induction programme to show them round the college and introduce them to staff and other students.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
