Our founders are two men from the Netherlands, studying at the University of Oxford and the London School of Economics. When we arrived in the United Kingdom, it did not take long for us to notice that we had been incredibly lucky to get into our universities. We heard from fellow students that they had been prepared for their application for years. They had received intense guidance, from writing their personal statements to choosing the right extracurriculars.

Our Dutch state schools, however, could not provide any of this. We thought this was unfair, and decided to start a small company, GB-Studie, to help Dutch students with the same problems. Our website attracted tens of thousands of visitors. We answered many questions and helped all of our clients get an offer from at least one of their aspired universities. We decided to branch out to other countries, wanting to help as many people as possible to realise their full academic potential. That is how Bridge GB started.
