As students begin to work on their university applications, they are allocated a UCAS tutor who works with them on one-to-one basis, providing advice and encouragement at every stage of the process – from writing personal statements to preparing for interviews and beyond. Tailored advice can be offered for specific courses and universities, with further support available through the Warwick Schools Foundation. This includes bespoke seminars for those wishing to submit Oxbridge and Cambridge applications, or apply for Medicine and Law.
Although the majority of our Sixth Form Leavers go on to study academic subjects at leading universities, students have access across the Warwick Schools Foundation to expert support on Conservatoires, Drama Schools, Art Colleges, Degree Apprenticeships and Global Universities.
Our Global Universities Coordinator delivers informative sessions on opportunities to study abroad. Students can arrange one-to-one appointments to explore what their unique interests and abilities are, and then to research and develop a list of potential institutions and programmes that reflect these. They have access to expert advice about universities, plan visits (real and/or virtual), arrange meetings with current students and alumni of prospective universities, and, after that, coordinate the application process.
RECENT HIGHER EDUCATION DESTINATIONS
At Kingsley there is a strong emphasis on careers guidance and our priority is to prepare students for the responsibilities and freedoms of adult life. For many of our students, this means continuing their education at university. They choose from a wide range of courses and establishments as illustrated below.
"I AM REALLY LOVING MY UNDERGRADUATE MUSIC COURSE AT CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY. THERE ARE SO MANY SOLO, CHAMBER AND ORCHESTRAL PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES IN ALL THE COLLEGES. I’M REALLY ENJOYING A MUSIC AND SCIENCE COURSE THIS TERM, WHICH BRINGS IN ASPECTS I ENJOYED AT KINGSLEY DURING MY CHEMISTRY A LEVEL. I WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL TO KINGSLEY FOR THE INCREDIBLE SUPPORT AND FLEXIBILITY THEY GAVE ME, MUSICALLY, ACADEMICALLY AND PASTORALLY IN ACHIEVING MY GOALS."Former Kingsley Student, Current Undergraduate Student of Music at Cambridge University
