What Our Students Say

As an Elite Admissions student in grade 12, I beyond pleased with my acceptances into several Ivy League universities – with scholarships! Thank you to MyPathToUni and the GEMS UniConnect Team with ScorePlus as I could not have competed the full year of applications to the US and UK without your support and guidance! My school counselor is beyond thrilled to have had this support, also, as your kind professionalism helped guide her through the support she needed to give me, your team, and my universities that I applied to. Thank you for my lifelong dream to study at an Ivy League school!
- Jamie, GEMS Student
I won a full scholarship to Cambridge Summer Programs for Film and Acting this year, thanks to the guidance of my team and counselors who showed me this opportunity and guided me through the intense application process! My family will be able to send me to this 2019 summer program in the UK as if I didn’t earn a scholarship we couldn’t afford it! Thanks for this award and opportunity, as now I am set on a path for my Uni admissions as a senior applicant for the fall – and we have a lot of work to do but a comprehensive plan already!
- Anoushka, GEMS Modern Academy Dubai
Thanks to the Oliv Team I have earned a full-time paid internship with a UAE Engineering firm to explore my desire for an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering in Canada. I had to attend a Foundation Program before my internship, and tutoring support from MyPathToUni over the summer, too. My parents are beyond happy to have this support – as I am now on track again with my A level courses to gain real-world career experience to help me determine where I go next for my undergraduate and career needs. Terrifc!
