Founded in 2003 in service of youth and society, ACEIS is a non-profit service which combines the characteristics of Chinese education with the admissions requirements of top world universities. ACEIS identifies top students; informs them of the opportunities available to them; collects, verifies and explains their academic records; and conducts a rigorous test
of their English, Math and Physics skills.
This innovative platform allows graduating high school seniors and college freshmen to quickly and easily apply to multiple universities that suit their academic and professional direction, often helping them avoid expensive preparatory study years. At the same time, participating schools receive a comprehensive, clear and objective assessment of each Chinese applicant, allowing them to make more informed admissions decisions.
Often described as a Red Brick University
(though not one of the original six), The University of Reading ranks in the top 2% of global research universities. The University of Reading is also home to the highly regarded Henley Business School, whose strong programs in Finance, Banking and Real Estate attract large numbers of applicants each year.
