Universities & Careers

The world of Higher Education has significantly changed in the recent years, with a wider range of choices available, including traditional academic degrees, emergent degree-apprenticeships, and more widely accessible courses offered at international universities. 

Careers and Higher Education guidance begins during a pupil’s first year at Senior school. Throughout the Upper and Lower Sixth years, students receive a comprehensive introduction to the current options on offer and are fully supported throughout the admissions process with the aim that each student will be placed in both a course and institution that will allow them to fulfil their potential. 

Talks are given on a range of topics including: choice of course, choice of university, student finance, graduate employability, international applications, applications for medicine, dentistry or veterinary science. All pupils are introduced to a range of online resources and are encouraged to use these are part of the decision making process to ensure that students are making an informed and well-reasoned decision in relation to their higher education and career options.
