Once you have made the decision to apply to University, you will need to consider which University is right for you.

We will offer support and advice to students in making the decision as to which Universities to apply to.  During the course of the year prior to application there will be opportunities to visit local Universities and we will invite speakers into sixth form to talk to about where to apply for the career route you are choosing.

As well as the individual University websites, there are a number of independent websites which can help you in reaching that decision;

There are also many useful services available to help you to complete your UCAS application.  One of the main sections is the personal statement.  We will support students in completing their UCAS applications and will run sessions aimed at completing a good personal statement.  The links below also offer guidance on what to include and what makes a good personal statement;
