University Preparation

 

At Thornleigh Sixth Form, one of our main goals is to ensure you have an ambitious and highly competitive application to present to universities. We have a structured process in place to guide you through the application.

The website that you will use to complete your University Application is: 

www.ucas.comThis is the central organisation for applications in the UK.

Create a UCAS Hub https://www.ucas.com/account?returnUrl=/dashboard where you can search and favourite courses, explore over 35,000 options, search for uni open days and events, turn your predicted grades into UCAS Tariff points and use a UCAS personal statement builder.

The following website are very useful too in order to gain a different perspective on different course and universities:

https://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/ - League tables plus more on aspects of Higher Education

www.purepotential.org - Information on HE, personal statements, careers, grad schemes, opportunities.

unistats.direct.gov.uk Government HE statistics for comparison

www.bestcourse4me.com - Useful for information on career paths

At Thornleigh Salesian College Sixth Form we identify students in year 12 who are interested in applying for Medicine or Dentistry or those who are considering applications to Oxford or Cambridge. These students are offered bespoke guidance for their early application and through partnerships with other providers we have secured personal statement and interview preparation support leading to successful conditional offers.
