Ivy Plus is based in Norway and serves students all over the world (Scandinavia, Europe, India, China, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, United States, etc.)

Ivy Plus is an independent* college and graduate admissions counseling service committed to helping students get into to the colleges and graduate schools they dream of attending, including highly selective Ivy League schools, Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, UCLA, Cambridge, Oxford and LSE every year since 2011. We are proud of our 97% success rate in helping our clients get admitted to one of their top choice schools.

How do we achieve such great results for our clients?  We counsel prospective students in selecting the schools and programs that best suit them, guide them in developing the best strategy to stand out and succeed, and coach them on completing the most effective college application.

IvyPlus also offers academic tutoring and test preparation (SAT/IB/GRE/GMAT) with experienced tutors. We can provide our counseling and tutoring services anywhere in the world via online video conferencing (Skype), phone, email and fax.

Our Experience

What makes Ivy Plus unique is our expertise accumulated over 13 years in admissions at one of the most selective universities in the United States, Harvard. Our tutors have decades of experience tutoring students of all skills in various subjects and for specific tests, including SAT, IB, GRE and GMAT tests.

Our Philosophy

We believe that in addition to our expertise and experience, our philosophy gives our applicants an advantage over the growing and large list of applicants competing for the same placements.

We believe that all students can find a school or program that suits them; where they can be successful academically, extracurricularly and socially; where they can mature, develop confidence and skills, and complete their studies knowing that they can reach their ulitmate goals and aspirations.

Our Name

You may wonder where we get our name from. Although we derive our name from the highly selective Ivy League** of universities in the United States due to our experience and expertise, we believe that our knowledge of and participation in the thorough selection process of an Ivy League institution provides even greater value to those applicants wishing to get into any of the thousands of accredited schools and programs in the United States and other countries that can help them reach their dreams. Hence, the plus in our name.
