The admissions process for undergraduate education can be complex and varies from country to country. The Red Pen provides end-to-end services for applicants – we help you develop an undergraduate admissions strategy, select destination(s) and programs, understand institutional requirements, costs, financial aid and conditions of offer and assist you with the preparation of application components and interviews.
We also provide standalone services for applicants who want help with specific aspects of their undergraduate applications.
