Tertiary



Are you studying at University or Polytech but not getting the results you desire?

Is your workload too much and you need some help taking control? We offer a number of courses specially designed to ensure tertiary students make the most of their education.

In 2013 one of our students gained a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford. We also helped a struggling first year student in obtain the grades he needed to continue in his programme. If you are driven to succeed at the highest level, or if you are lacking self-motivation and time management skills, our Study Coaches can help you achieve outstanding results this year.
