Depending on what you choose, your mentor will offer study tips, provide study plan support, feedback based on IB TOK presentation criteria, and practical advice on time-management. Our three delivery modes make the programme unique and customisable. Meet your learning goals at your pace and time.


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!


My personal tutor was unutterably incredible. I am most grateful to him for making remarks to me about certain mistakes of mine, which I had to emphasize, and directing my gaze to where to look, and how to communicate a certain message unequivocally. I learned many new ideas from him, which I only thought about, but did not study in depth. He repeatedly gave me advice on what to do next time I write such a project or apply to a university. Certainly thanks to him I am different now and much better than when I started this programme!!!
