Message from the Head of IBDP

“Where should I go to university?” is one of the most commonly asked questions to me at the moment by students from all years.

c

The Year 13s for the most, have made their choices and are now waiting for borders to open, flights to resume and are finalising their plans. Some are re-thinking distances they wish to travel and for the first time, staying a little closer to home seems like a slightly more viable option.

For the students not quite at that stage in terms of education there are now, it seems, so many additional things that they have to consider. Parents are also a little more reticent to have their children 'too far' away, but what is too far for some is just fine for others.

My advice to students and parents is to do as much research as possible and start to consider your options now. As a school we can help point families in the right direction, and of course directly support the writing of personal statements and great academic references. However, where a student chooses to go to university is, quite rightly, decided on the whole by the student themselves and their parents. As we made reference to last week, in the coming weeks we will be organising virtual workshops on a whole range of university related topics for Year 12s and organising a virtual coffee morning for parents.

In the meantime, included with this article are three resources which we think are of value. Please click on them to see if there is something of interest to you.

Finally, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will do my very best to help in any way I can.
