Class of 2016 University Offers

We are delighted to report that this year we have had a record number of applications to universities.

With the official UCAS deadline passing on 15th January, we are delighted to report that this year we have had a record number of applications to universities. All together 172 students applied for over 840 different courses, with more than 250 going to Russell Group (the leading 24 universities in the UK).  So far we have received more than 530 offers with many students still waiting to hear from their universities. We are especially pleased to see that over 40% of those offers are from Russell Group universities, as it means that half of our students hold at least one offer from an elite institution.  Our biggest successes so far are offers for: 

Luke Mleczko – Chemical Engineering at University of Cambridge

Anna Cremin – History at University of Cambridge

Suneet Dias - History at University of Cambridge

George Hedley – Geology at Imperial College London

Kirty Pandey – Economic History and Economics at LSE

Ammar Alhadi – Medicine at University of Exeter

 


This table shows which Russell Group universities are the most popular with our students and the many offers our students have received so far.
