Interview Skills

The university application is difficult to navigate. There are different exams for every country, countless essay questions, and multiple interviews. Furthermore, it is no longer enough to simply do well in the classroom – each student must find the ‘right fit’ with their university. It is no wonder that students often feel lost while beginning to apply for university.

The emphasis of the program is on helping students understand the fundamentals of interviews and how to prepare for them. This includes different approaches to various interview situations and the necessary preparation work including the personal statement, resumes, and interview etiquette. Through experiential learning methods, students will gain a fundamental understanding of the importance of developing a strong personal image as well as deportment. Students will also develop the ability to present themselves appropriately and confidently during an interview. Students will gain a sense of confidence in public speaking and effective communication after this program, and have a firm grasp of general interview requirements and skills required for post-secondary institutions and job applications in Singapore or abroad.

Why learn from us?
By drawing on a thematic and scenario-based approach, our dynamic mentors build students’ confidence, perfect their body language, and teach them how to communicate their motivations persuasively. Students will also have the opportunity to hone their newly acquired skills in a series of practice sessions, all of which can be conducted individually or in group setting. Our interview skills program has helped many students during interviews to Ivy League schools as well as Oxbridge.

SAT/ACT Preparatory Courses

Drawing on our innovative curriculum designed by top SAT/ACT scorers, The Global Citizen offers affordable yet effective SAT/ACT preparatory courses. We developed a holistic course, including reading, writing, and math modules. We believe in the “3T” approach:
– testing students to locate their weaknesses,
– teaching them the most relevant materials which addresses their weak spots, and
– training them to ensure confidence on test day.

Each student is assigned a tutor who recently scored in the top 1% of test-takers themselves. The tutor teaches the student, and works with a supervising mentor to monitor each student’s performance through Arete, our proprietary software. .

University Consultancy

Applying to universities around the world can be an unfamiliar, complicated, and stressful process. But it does not have to be.

The Global Citizen simplifies the application process by breaking down the various components, and providing students with advice at every step of the process. As it is no longer enough to simply stand out, we work together with the student to identify and bring out their personality, and identify how they fit in with their dream institution. Our beginning-to-end university consultancy programme helps students apply to universities, but we help students at every stage of the process: beginning with selection of universities and ending with interviews.

Moreover, we believe that each student should be able to get the right amount of help that they need. Thus, we have introduced the flat-fee per country approach. Every student can arrange for as many consultations as they would like, regardless of how many universities they would like to apply to for every country’s application system. Prior to enrolment, every student may receive a free one-hour onboarding consultation.
