University Guidance

Applying to university varies from country to country. A good place to start is www.topuniversities.com; this website has information on universities worldwide. Please see below some useful information about how to apply in different countries.

As a prerequisite, the majority of application processes require:

  • Clarification of the level of English (C+ as IGCSE English First Language) is usually the minimum requirement for entry, or check for IELTS/TOEFL requirements.
  • Predicted gradesto ensure the correct academic level.
  • A personal statement outlining why the student is applying to the particular course; experiences gained from Extracurricular Activities are important to draw upon.

University applications will always need at least one teacher reference. Students must ensure they give chosen teachers a minimum of one month’s notice to complete a reference.

For more information, the University Guidance book can be viewed and downloaded here.
