Higher Education

For students intending on entering Higher Education, there will be a planned programme to support their application through the UCAS system. Once again, aspiration is the key to success allied with the expertise and support of key subject staff.

The aim throughout is to encourage aspiration and personal development to enable all students to achieve the best career outcomes possible.

If you’re thinking of applying to either Oxford or Cambridge universities, one of the first things you’ll find out is the college system. There are over 40 at Oxford and over 30 at Cambridge, and each one is different.

Each college operates as an independent institution within the university, and students normally apply to a specific college.

Deciding which to apply to will become clearer once you have thought about what subject you want to study, and once you’ve visited the two universities. We run trips to both in the summer. But in the meantime, you might want to browse our new Oxbridge college tree. 

This selection chart below divides all the colleges up on the basis of three criteria: size, reputation and distance from the centre.
