Personal Statements and Oxbridge Admissions (interview prep)

I'm an Oxford graduate who has been helping university applicants with personal statements over the past few years, a number of whom have secured places at Oxbridge.

Before applying to university myself I spent a lot of time with a number of different people who helped guide me with my personal statement and the rest of the admissions process. I now aim to pass on to others the insight I gained from these experiences.

In a personal statement session, I will set out the structure of a great personal statement and work with the student to identify the content which will allow their application to stand out amongst those of other applicants.

For those applying to Oxbridge, I am happy to help with course choices, college choices, expectations of the Oxbridge lifestyle, and understanding the difference between Oxford and Cambridge. I have also run a number of mock interviews for applicants based on the experiences of myself and other Oxbridge graduates to ensure that students feel more comfortable and prepared for the real thing.

Career counselling in STEM (mainly physics) and aiding presentation skills
Hello, I can give you guidance in career planning in STEM-related fields - but only research/academia paths and not industrial sectors. Besides that, I can also help students improve their presentation skills in cases of their bachelor/master/PhD thesis or any other presentations that you might have to give for any of your courses and interviews for PhD positions. Presentation skills - It is very important and beneficial to give very good talks when you are presenting your research work in some course or your thesis during your bachelor/master/PhD. I will help you in giving good constructive feedback about your presentation and especially the chronology in which the items should be presented. During the course of my studies, I have written several reports and deliverables wherein I was required to write highly scientific content in short and easy-to-follow sentences. This is an art that one never stops learning. Hence, I am no master or expert in these things, but I surely have a good amount of experience which I can share with you. Career counselling - I am currently in the last year of my PhD studies in physics, based in Hamburg, Germany. I have studied in various places and hence know the importance of communication, networking, and choosing the right groups for one's career development. I have studied in India, Portugal, Russia, the Netherlands and Germany. I have been involved in many research projects up to now ranging from chemistry, biophysics to pure and applied physics. I can help you in tailoring your resume/CV for the positions you apply for and can also help you write your cover letter/statement of purpose.

Help with writing an effective and operational CV and cover letter
Hello, my name is Audrey and I propose to help you in preparing the most operational and efficient cover letter and / or CV possible for you! Are you facing the blank page syndrome, are you hesitating about the wording, don't know how to order your remarks? You ask yourself the eternal questions: how to sell myself in the fairest and most efficient way possible? Do you want to get out of the box, be original, bring out your personality, to distinguish yourself from the recruiter, but do you worry about not being conventional enough? Have you written hundreds of cover letters and resumes, but you're not getting the responses you're hoping for? Are you having trouble organizing your CV because you have too much or not enough experience to highlight? Your experiences do not correspond to the position for which you are applying, because you are retraining and you do not know how to highlight your past experiences? I help you answer all these questions! I am a master's student in international relations and my last five years have been marked by numerous interviews and the sending of multiple applications in order to obtain a job, an internship, a new opportunity, a master's degree, etc. Thanks to my CV and my cover letter, I managed to enter one of the most selective training courses in France in my field. I have also obtained internships or been called back by very large French companies and ministries (in particular the embassies with which I have accumulated 3 internships with my CV and a solid cover letter as my only ally). On the strength of these experiences and the expectations of recruiters, I have helped many friends by correcting their cover letter, their CV and by advising them. All of different profiles with heterogeneous files they achieved their goal. In reality, what counts is not so much what is in the letter or in the CV as in the way of presenting the elements. So why won't I help you in turn? With pleasure!
