My Story

The Founder of From High School to Uni

If you're curious about my journey and why I created this book specifically for YOU, tune in to our chat with The Independent Education Consultants to find out more.

Hi! I'm Philippa. A mom, project manager, highly organized (and a bit OCD!).


Are you feeling anxious about starting university? Don't worry, you're not alone! I understand the challenges of transitioning from high school and preparing for university.


When my first child finished high school and was preparing to go to university, she was excited, nervous and curious about what university life would be like.  We began to look for guidance on how to prepare both logistically and mentally for this new stage of adult life, and it made me realise that there were no practical subjects being taught at school - useful subjects like how to create and manage a budget, how to plan a personal diet, how to shop for food and cook, how to sew on a button, iron a shirt and do laundry - all the things you need to know when you become an adult and start living independently away from home.  


It made me want to help others and so I wrote a book that would offer practical advice, useful tips and personal insights to help worried parents like me, and teenagers prepare for and make the most of this new adventure. 

Having now guided my own children in and out of universities in three different countries, as well as numerous other students, I've encountered and learnt from all the hurdles you can face, and have captured the "how to deal with them" in the resources available to you here. 

 It's a stressful time in a teenager's life, so why not make it a little easier?

That's why I've created the ultimate student guide, From High School to Uni, just for you! My mission is to guide you every step of the way, ensuring a seamless transition and a successful start to your university life.

Think of it as your own personal Freshers' Tips toolkit, giving you all the tools you need to prepare for university life.
