Our Mission

Choosing what subject to study at university can be really difficult – not everyone knows exactly what they want to do in future! At Edstarts, the aim of our courses is simple – we want to give young people a real insight into university courses and careers, so they can make the right decisions when it comes to choosing A-level subjects and applying to university.

 

Furthermore, when it comes to competitive degrees such as medicine, law or dentistry, universities favour applicants who have made the effort to find out about their future careers. Our courses, delivered by passionate students and graduates from the UK’s top universities, will give you an authentic, in-depth experience of your chosen subject and strengthen your university application!
