RGS has all embracing experience in this area and an excellent track record of helping students secure places at the top Universities in the UK, including Oxford and Cambridge, as well as other leading Universities worldwide. Our personal links with Universities and Colleges mean that we can make a real difference.
We aim to encourage:
We offer comprehensive advice at every stage of an application. Tutors, Heads of Department, the Head of Sixth Form and Sixth Form Teachers, ISCO advisors and the Academic Management Team all assist in this advice and support.
Students have access to Unifrog, the only Careers tool that contains a comprehensive list of every University course and every Apprenticeship vacancy in the UK. As an innovative product, it allows parents to login alongside students, so that they become part of the Careers guidance process.
The UCAS process begins in the Lower Sixth, with workshops on personal statements. We organise a UCAS Evening for parents and students when we invite speakers to talk on finance, making a successful application, the changing realities of Higher Education in the UK, studying abroad, alternatives to Higher Education and other subject areas. This is followed by extensive support and advice through the whole process as students complete their application, prepare for and sit any entrance tests and attend interviews (for which they receive plenty of practice) and then sit back and await their offers!
