Please read the following important terms and conditions before you subscribe to UniPrepare or UniPrepare Paid Plans and check that they contain everything you want and nothing that you are not willing to agree to.
UniPrepare is an online programme supporting students across their university application journey.

UniPrepare also provides paid plans which offer students additional benefits such as aptitude testing, 1:1s and guidance counselling (“UniPrepare Paid Plans”). These terms apply to both unpaid subscriptions and UniPrepare Paid Plans. Further information on what each subscription tier or plan offers can be found here: www.uniprepare.com
