Overseas University Applications

With the potential to study at higher ranked universities with cheaper, occasionally zero, tuition fees, or at more focused specialist educational establishments, applications to overseas universities have increased in recent years.

We offer outstanding provision and support for those who show an interest in studying abroad, or equally, for boarders who are returning home for undergraduate studies.

  • Regular visiting speakers from overseas universities to discuss Higher Education Abroad with our sixth formers and parents.
  • Regular one-to-one meetings with Mrs. Jupp for expert, individual guidance on all aspects of a student’s application including components of the application, pre-admissions test advice (SATs for US applications, etc.), scholarships and fees advice, visas and mock interviews.
  • Presentations and handbooks delivered to students and parents with all the information needed to make informed decisions.
  • Up to date information and advice on Overseas University Open Days and College Days.
Overseas University Advisor

Studying Abroad 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, for all universities in all countries. She regularly invites guest speakers to talk to students, with admissions tutors from all over the world visiting the school. 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.
