Bonas MacFarlane has been a pioneer of American Universities admissions since the 1990s. In 1998, founder Charles Bonas created the first American college application programme that fully integrated with the British sixth form curriculum. Just one year later our first student was accepted to Harvard.

Since then, we’ve partnered with former US deans and heads of admissions at Ivy League universities, as well as US consulting agency American Education Experts, to create a rigorous US college consulting service with offices in London and New York.

Your questions answered:

What is a liberal arts education?
  • Higher education in America, as opposed to in Britain or abroad, is focused around the “liberal arts”. The ancient Greeks considered the liberal arts to be the ultimate mark of an educated person.
  • As opposed to reading one subject, students at US colleges enjoy a truly interdisciplinary education encompassing the humanities as well social, natural, and formal sciences.
  • A four year liberal arts degree aims to provide a broader spectrum of knowledge and skills than could be attained through the study of just one subject. Students can read Shakespeare alongside their Biochemistry course, or study Economics and International Relations in parallel.
  • In an increasingly globalized world, America’s higher education leads the way in training students to be flexible, critical thinkers and modern leaders.
