As Year 13 students prepare to move on, our highly experienced UCAS tutors guide them every step of the way; from initial university choices and Oxbridge taster day visits, to mock interviews, drafting personal statements and arranging work experience with professionals in relevant fields.
Students start the process in Year 12, logging on to UCAS together, with step by step instructions on the completion of the common parts of the process. We also use our own electronic tracking system, which means parents, students and teachers can see all the stages of the planning and application process clearly. Parents and pupils are guided through the creation of personal statements together, and tutors and subject teachers all provide useful feedback. The mock interviews are with UCAS-trained professionals, who carry out subject-specific, forty-minute sessions for each student. Successful applicants are always inspired by their offers from universities and we guide them through the process of accepting/rejecting offers. As the next step falls into place, students approach their examinations with renewed vigour.
