"The teachers were always incentivising us to learn extra topics independently and to discuss these in class. Being interested in class helped me get offers from the universities I was aiming at, such as SOAS, Queen Mary and City University."


"At MPW, I met brilliant teachers, who were able to prepare me for the competitive exams at the end of the year. As a result, I have received four offers from top universities: King’s College, SOAS, City University and Queen Mary."
