The United States and the United Kingdom differ in their academic approach.
There are several prestigious universities both in the United States and in the United Kingdom. There, students benefit not only from the excellence of the academic staff but also from being surrounded by highly motivated and capable students. In addition, due to the high level of internationalisation and cultural diversity, personal development is fostered.
Las universidades británicas y americanas difieren de la enseñanza universitaria española. Muchas de estas diferencias no son en sí una razón por la que estudiar en el extranjero, sino sencillamente un ejemplo de las opciones que pueden encontrarse en el mundo. En Aditus valoramos muy positivamente que los estudiantes estén informados para que puedan decidir por sí mismos qué estilo se adecúa más a lo que buscan obtener de una educación universitaria.
The universities in the United Kingdom and United States
In a process in which you showcase your potential as a future student to a university, it is key to ask yourself in the initial stage of personal reflection: who am I? Who do I want to be? Only once you find your answer, can you start building the self that exists in the applications.

The 4 years, divided into semesters, that a degree in the United States will last provides more room to include courses with a greater variety. In first year, the subjects will be varied and focused on personal development, covering the science and humanities regardless of your specific major. From the second year onwards, the programs are more focused, to train you professionally.
The application process is somewhat longer and must be started in the first year of Bachillerato, although it is also unified through the Common Application , apart from a few exceptions like MIT. They will ask you for introspective essays, the SAT and the TOEFL , and there is a possibility of accessing sports scholarships.
Harvard has allowed me to meet true leaders, some of them in crowded amphitheaters and others in the neighbour’s room; people who inspire me to become my best self, someone of value to society.
Our tutors will guide you
Many of our Aditus students decide to apply to both the United States and United Kingdom. In all these cases we match them with two tutors, one for each country, so that they can learn about both systems in detail and, once the admission processes are complete and taking into account their results, they can choose what suits them best.
Tutors are the basis of our program. We provide guides and resources to students, such as lists of scholarships and information about the admission process of each university, but it is the tutor who is always available to speak with the student and address their doubts. At the end of the process, students always appreciate how the tutor gets to know them and will even end up suggesting other related degrees or programs that they may not have considered.
The selected students are powered by an indescribable passion for one or more academic subjects. It is worth working with such a student, one not easy to find but of which there are more in Spain than we may imagine.
