Cambridge Engineering

“Consistently practising with UniAdmissions helped me gain a lot of confidence and the Cambridge Interview ended up going well.”

All tutors are either current senior students, recent graduates or from a professional background that have taken the ENGAA and scored in the top 10% in their admissions cycle. Our selection process ensures only the best tutors work for us, in roles most suited to their skill-sets. You can read more about our tutors here.

We work with a limited number of students each year to ensure we can provide the best support suited for their particular needs.

Our Programmes have a structured syllabus, however, we tweak elements of the syllabus so the student is able to gain the most out of our support.

First and foremost, we assess whether the potential student has the right academic capabilities and profile to be realistically accepted to study at Cambridge

Secondly, we assess whether the student is capable and willing to put in the time required to create a strong application for Cambridge. 

Finally, we assess the student’s attitude and reasoning behind applying for Engineering at Cambridge. This is one of our most important considerations.

If a student has below-average (but still realistic) grades, but the correct attitude, we would consider accepting them onto our Programme. Unfortunately, if the converse is that case, it’s unlikely the student would be accepted onto the Programme. Admissions Tutors look for passion, not just academic potential.

We do have ideal start times at points throughout the year, however, the syllabus can be adapted to suit your particular start time if you are accepted onto the Programme. Our Admissions Consultants can help you understand the Programme timeline in your specific case – all you need to do is ask.

You can prepare for the ENGAA as you would with any exam – with a lot of practice and revision. We have a variety of articles available for you to read through on our website. 

For more targeted support which offers a greater chance of success, you should take a look at our various ENGAA and Engineering Programmes.

You’ll get access to all of our online ENGAA resources, such as online lectures, and paperback books packed with powerful strategies and techniques to help you prepare, improve and boost your score. You will also receive ENGAA mock papers to put your learning to the test.
