Bonas MacFarlane Education is the UK’s leading provider of specialist education support programmes.
Our University Preparation Programme is an ten-month sustained programme of study which draws on Bonas MacFarlane’s twenty-five years of experience helping candidates win places at the world’s most competitive universities and courses.
Since 2016 we have been offering 100% scholarships for students from widening participation backgrounds, delivering support to students across the UK using our innovative online platform.
The programme uniquely blends advice and enrichment. Advice is provided by Bonas MacFarlane consultants and enrichment is provided by academics from top British universities. Students have seminars and enrichment tasks every week. The programme helps sixth formers to become strong candidates and good students. We develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, provide help with choosing courses and universities, and prepare sixth formers for admissions tests and interviews. Using our innovative online platform we are able to bring the UK’s leading admissions experts and academic tutors to students wherever they are in the country.
The programme’s first year was small but results from this cohort were encouraging. All the students performed above their school’s expectations for WP students and most performed also above their school’s general benchmarks.
Students also opt for two additional Bonas MacFarlane Academy high-level courses, taught by university academics.
