Higher Education at Kesgrave Sixth Form
Since our first cohort of A Level students completed their courses in 2003, we have had a steady increase in the numbers of students progressing into Higher Education from Kesgrave. We now see over 130 students a year applying for Degree Level courses at a range of institutions, covering a range of subject areas such as Medicine, Business Studies, Engineering, Psychology and Biology.
Preparation for entry into Higher Education is supported by focused sessions from local Universities and former students. In June, students are shown the new live www.ucas.com Apply system and can register their form and begin their research. A variety of supportive documents are also e-mailed to help guide students through the process.
Students who are looking at apprenticeship, work or combined study are also given specialise sessions with a ‘world of work’ focus.
