UCAS offers flooding in

Dated: 9 February 2021

 
 
95% of our students progress to university after leaving Woodhouse. As a sixth form college that only teaches A level students, we are natural experts in advice and support for university applications and have staff dedicated to helping with UCAS (The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) and personal statements.
 
Our careers department helps students to make smart choices and we regularly have visiting universities on site (or virtually this year) giving out degree specific information and lecturing in subject areas. We have our own business, law, medicine, architecture and other academies to support applications with insider knowledge, and we help dozens of our students apply to Oxbridge every year.
 
That said, we are still impressed with the numbers of offers our students are securing under incredibly exceptional circumstances due to the pandemic. Our upper sixth cohort has received 2161 offers so far with more coming in every day.
 
These include 1252 offers from Russell Group universities - a self-selected association of twenty-four public research universities in the United Kingdom. They are sometimes perceived as representing the 'best' universities in the country (although the accuracy of this is disputed and many other universities are of an equal or higher calibre).
 
They include a top 5 of:
 
Queen Mary University of London - 140 offers
University of Nottingham - 132 offers
University of Leeds - 124 offers
University of Manchester - 124 offers
King's College London, University of London - 100 offers
 
So far, ten students have been offered places at medical school and one at veterinary medicine, but it is still early days for medicine offers and more will surely arrive. And 27 students have Oxbridge offers.
 
The arts are also well represented - seven students so far have offers for film production courses, one for an animation degree and one student has several offers for costume design for screen/theatre. Although, for our fine art students progression usually means a year-long foundation course at one of the top art colleges before applying for a degree course.
 
Also worth noting (so we are in informed) is one offer from Principal John Rubinstein's home town - Hull University. Highly competitive!
