Year 13 University Early Applications

Year 13 University Early Applications It has been an extremely busy time for our Year 13 students.

It has been an extremely busy time for our Year 13 students.

They have been busy revising and sitting their IB mock exams while at the same time completing University applications. This year our students have already submitted applications to the USA, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Singapore and Korea – navigating many different application processes and the documents required is difficult and they should all be praised for their dedication to securing places to continue their education once they graduate from The British School Warsaw. This week we successfully submitted the last of our UCAS applications before the deadline on Wednesday evening. In total 34 students in Year 13 have applied through UCAS to study at Universities in the UK.  

I am pleased to report that their efforts are already paying off and students have received offers from the following universities: University of Cambridge, Durham University, UCL, University of St Andrews, University of Leeds, Queen Mary University of London, University of Bristol, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Nottingham, University of Warwick, University of Essex, Swansea University, City, University of London, University of Westminster, Kingston University and University of Bedfordshire. Additionally, students are also attending interviews for courses in Medicine, Engineering, and Architecture, as well for admission to Universities in the USA.  

While Brexit and the Pandemic have made studying abroad a less attractive option for some, there are still many benefits to completing a University education overseas. Studying at one of the Worlds top ranking universities with a reputation for high academic standards and world-class research will give you countless opportunities both academically and socially.

Studying abroad shows that you have the confidence to challenge yourself, adjust to new situations and make major decisions. At the same time studying abroad will help you to develop your independence, adaptability, self-awareness, resilience, and problem-solving. Evidence of these skills and an internationally recognised degree will set you apart from other graduates in the job market.

Many European Universities have application deadlines in the Spring so there is still work to be done. Let’s not forget that there are also very good options available right here in Poland – with The University of Warsaw and Jagiellonian University Krakow both ranking in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (601 and 501 respectively). Both Universities are now offering a large number of courses taught in English and are keen to accept both Polish and International students to these degrees.

Congratulations again to Year 13 on successfully submitting their University applications so far and for the amazing offers already received!
