Going to Univeristy?
Applying to university as a home-educated student certainly has its challenges. University applications in the UK and overseas often rely on a tutor reference which may pose an obstacle to home-educated students who are self-taught and do not rely on a school or a tutor to assist them in their studies.
One choice is to apply for university after receiving your A Level or IB results. But not all students want to be forced to take a gap year at this point. There’s a lot to be said with continuing your studies and this is so often the case with highly motivated self-taught candidates. Our alternative means you can apply during your last year of A’ Level study!
MMP was founded to help home-educators and although we now support schools and students alike in over 33 countries, we have a deep commitment to home-educators.
Our Founder’s own two sons applied through UCAS for university admission but faced the dilemma of being self-learners. Both achieved places at Cambridge University for History and Modern Languages (Christ’s College) and Natural Sciences (Pembroke College). Realising that other self-educated students faced the same problem, MMP launched a service especially for home-schooled students who wish to progress smoothly from A Levels to Higher Education but do not have the support of a school or tutor for references and advice.
Our MMP Mentor is an award-winning Principal Examiner who has been recognised by the University of Oxford for guiding young people through the process of applying to university and importantly, encouraging those who thought Russell Group and Ivy League University application was beyond their dreams.

“The entire UCAS process for a home-educated student is best described as trying to fit a square peg into a round hole”. I received five offers – Cambridge, Durham, Warwick, Bristol and King’s and I have had no schooling whatsoever since Year 7. Working with an MMP mentor made all the difference.
