Applying to University
We have built strong links with all the local Universities and invite Universities from across the country to our careers events.
Students who qualify for widening participation schemes such as On Track to Bath, Access to Bristol, Bristol Scholars, Realising Opportunities and The Sutton Trust are given additional targeted support to ensure that they are given a contextual reduced offer. We are also a partner college for the Future Quest programme.
Early applicants (medics, vets, dentists, Oxford and Cambridge) are given additional opportunities through our links with Oxford and Cambridge Universities and partner schools to prepare for interviews and admissions tests. Eligible students are supported to apply for Oxford UNIQ and the Cambridge HE+ programme.
Nursing and teaching applicants are given the opportunity to participate in mock interviews delivered by University outreach teams to help them to prepare for the real thing.
Application advice and support
Starting in the summer term of year one students are given information,advice and guidance through every step of the UCAS application process. Support is provided through the academic mentor team, the Futures programme and UCAS drop in sessions during the Autumn term. Personal statement advice and guidance is also delivered through our partner Universities and eligible students are able to attend additional sessions with the charity Into University.
