Prestigious University Support
‘A group of ten Year 12 students visited Cambridge University in July 2011. They were involved in some aspiration raising group activities and listened to talks on the subjects of their preference. We stayed overnight in one of the Halls of residence. It was a very worthwhile trip which the students thoroughly enjoyed. This is hopefully going to be an annual event.’
‘A group of eleven Year 12 students went to Durham Open Day in April 2012. We took part in a campus tour and looked around the city centre. We also visited Van Mildert College to give the students a taste of what it is like to study at a collegiate university.’
You need advice and guidance to gain entry to most high level courses at the most prestigious universities. Such courses include Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry, and Law at most universities, Sport at Loughborough, Engineering at Imperial College, Mathematics at Warwick and all courses at Oxford, Cambridge and the Russell Group of Universities.
This support is available on our Oxbridge and Prestigious Universities Programme. This includes lectures on entry requirements for these universities, talks from visiting Academics and the chance to make a visit to Oxford or Cambridge.
The Prestigious Universities Programme is designed to take you through the application process especially to Oxford and Cambridge and to clarify what these Universities are looking for. Above all, the programme raises confidence levels and provides huge encouragement for those thinking of applying.
Practical help with applications, personal statements, aptitude tests and interviews are also given. The Oxbridge selection process is unique so special assistance is provided through specialist tutors.
