University Preparation

Beyond Eltham

Working closely with the Heads of Sixth Form, Universities, and Overseas Study, at Eltham College we offer a comprehensive university preparation programme meticulously designed to offer an array of invaluable interventions for our students. This multifaceted programme includes an variety of talks and workshops delivered by respected Higher Education institutions, specialised commercial organisations, employers, and accomplished alumni.

Additionally, with the help of our staff, we provide dedicated support for those students aiming at overseas universities or applying for Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine, Dentistry, and Veterinary Science courses.

In Lower Sixth Form, students and parents gain access to Unifrog, an exceptional online resource serves as a comprehensive repository, facilitating in-depth research into UK and international universities and courses. It also furnishes real-time updates on prevalent apprenticeship opportunities. More than a research platform, Unifrog also acts as a central hub for students to meticulously work on their personal statements, enabling teaching staff to curate their references, and facilitating the seamless management of the entire UCAS application process by the school. This user-friendly platform additionally ensures an efficient and streamlined application journey, assuring students of comprehensive support in their pursuit of higher education.
