Students apply to five universities and, in the run up to this application, each will be given a considerable level of guidance from his or her Group Tutor, Director of Studies and College Director – covering their selection of courses and universities through the UCAS application system, helping them to compose a ‘personal statement’ and more.
If a student is called for interview by a university, he or she does not attend before sitting a mock interview at Earlscliffe.
Further examinations on application:
Non-native speakers of English must sit the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test as part of their university entry portfolio of exams, and we offer at least two lessons a week of IELTS tuition on the timetable.
In addition, some universities require students to sit further examinations when they apply for particular degrees. These might include: the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) for some law courses; the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) for various University of Oxford and Cambridge courses; and the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) for certain medical and dental courses.
Earlscliffe can provide practice testing and extra tuition, if it is required.
