What is the 1:1 Research Programme designed by Ivy League tutors?

The Ivy League Online Research Programme (‘ILORP’) is designed by faculty from Ivy League universities for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.

Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic.

This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of studying at a top tier university. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!


I studied Computer Science in this course, specifically Cryptocurrency and Artificial Intelligence. My tutor was an excellent tutor and one of the best teachers I have ever had. Though the topic of blockchain is very complex, he explained these concepts to me very clearly such that I was able to digest large amounts of knowledge easily. The use of diagrams to explain concepts helped me understand them much more easily and always gave constructive feedback when I needed them.
