Beyond the 6th Form
The process for making University Applications begins during Year 12. Students attend a day at the University of Hertfordshire to gain an impression of what a university campus is like.
In July, they attend an event at the University which hosts Universities from all over the country. This is a chance for students to find out about courses and collect prospectuses.
At the end of the year students receive a Higher Education pack which gives them vital information about the early stages of preparing for a University Application.
The actual application process begins in September when students are introduced to the UCAS system and given advice on writing personal statements and completing the online application process. At Stanborough, all students applying to university do so via EAS (The Electronic Application System). Students are encouraged to attend open days and seek ongoing support with their application from both their personal tutor and Post 16 Leader.
