Overseas University Applications

Studying abroad offers a different way of learning. It is an academically rewarding and culturally enriching experience helping students to broaden their horizons, offering the potential to learn a new language, and to travel.

It has become an enticing option for many with increased tuition fees from universities in the UK and an increasing number of employers expecting to see international experience on the CV’s of their employees. Obtaining a degree from a foreign university is now a viable option for many and Mrs. Lucy Jupp, Overseas Universities Advisor, provides expert advice to students and parents at information evenings and in one-to-one meetings; guiding students in the early stages as well as coordinating all aspects of their application right through to the submission deadline. As a Spanish and French teacher who has lived abroad, she is in a strong position to guide students through the cultural and linguistic benefits of living overseas.
