This term is busy as ever with Year 13 students now sending their applications to universities. Many of those sent are already receiving great offers from universities such as Bath, Bristol, Glasgow, Kent, King’s College London, Southampton, Warwick and York.
This week we were privileged to host Charlotte Isaacs from the University of Oxford. Not only did she present really useful information to the wider community, but she also worked with smaller groups of interested students in Year 12, and our Year 13 applicants in an interview-focused session. Before half term, we also hosted some American universities such as UC San Diego and UC Davis, as well as other global universities such as the University of Tokyo and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. A group of UK universities (Loughborough, Goldsmiths, Royal Holloway, Staffordshire and New College of the Humanities) also held a mini-fair here and gave advice to our Year 12 students about how to choose a university. Our Year 12 US-bound students have also had advice on choosing a college from Concourse, and we’ve also been discussing alternatives to university and the advantages and challenges of a gap year.
We continue to host lunchtime lectures, such as ‘Lloyd’s: Past and Present’ delivered by Cass Business School, (City, University of London), Architecture (by the University of Kent), and studying Medicine in Australia (by the University of Sydney).
On Thursday 2nd November during lunch (12:20pm - 1:00pm) we will be hosting a variety of universities from the UK, USA, Australia and Singapore, with a focus on gaining overseas scholarships. Parents and students are welcome to attend. Please see the poster for more information.
As always, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or queries.
