First round of LFD testing concluded for all students yesterday - fantastic response from everyone involved (all negative too!). We are so excited to welcome ALL students back to lessons today for the first time since mid-December.

Pathways after A Levels - University

At the end of Year 13 many of our students go onto university and an increasing number go onto apprenticeships.  This section has lots of information on universities and student finance. For more information about apprenticeships, please refer to our Guide to Apprenticeships section.  

At the bottom of the page there are further links for Parents and Carers.

With tuition fees over £9000, choosing to apply to university is a very important decision to take and, before committing to a minimum of three years studying at university, whether in the UK, Europe or further afield, it is vital that you research your options well.

UCAS

The UCAS website is a great place to start your research. This is also where all applications are made.

The Uni Guide

The Uni Guide helps students make more informed decisions about their higher education choices and courses.

Russell Group Universities

The Russell Group’s 24 members are world-class, research-intensive universities. They are unique institutions, each with their own history and ethos, but who share some distinguishing characteristics.

How do you know which universities are the best?  Take a look at the three sites below to help you decide:

The Uni Guide - University League Tables 2021

The Guardian - University League Table 2020

The Times - Best Universities in the UK 2021


Student finance: how to apply

This is the official website where all students apply for a student loan in the UK.

For more information on student loans and how to make them go further have a look at the two articles below:

Student Loans Decoded

Final note:

This section is only the start of considering university as an option at 18.  For those joining the Sixth Form at Glyn School, there is a thorough supportive programme to enable our students to make the right choices for the future.  The program starts in the September of Year 12 and runs for the full two years.
