Cirencester Sixth Form College’s High Achieving students gain places at top universities

Cirencester Sixth Form College students have once again succeeded in gaining offers from a variety of top universities.

Nine Oxbridge candidates have achieved places, with 5 offers from Cambridge and 4 from Oxford in a range of subjects, including Engineering, Science, Languages and Land Economy.  Equally successful have been the College Medical, Veterinary and Dentistry applicants with 13 out of 15 being offered places at elite universities across the country.

Mike Cadman, Lead for High Achievers explained: “This year has been exceptional for our students.  In 2017 a third of our students applying for university gained places at selective universities including the Russell Group.   This year 86% of our Medics, vets and dentistry students gained offers which compares to a national figure of around 30%.”

Jim Grant, Principal of Cirencester Sixth Form College added: “We are delighted with the offers that our students have gained, which is testament to their hard work.  The College puts a huge amount of effort into ensuring students have access to specialist teachers and guidance tutors to enable them to gain places at the most appropriate universities and achieve the best outcomes.  We pride ourselves on Cirencester College being a perfect preparation for university and are pleased that over 80% of our students, who go on to university gain first class or upper second class honours.”

Second year medic student Alex Sullivan said, “Cirencester College offers great support for Vets, Medics and Dentistry students, including one-to-one meetings, careers advice and support through the whole of the application process.  I am so happy to have been offered a place at Manchester University to do medicine, I have no doubt that the support of my tutor through each step of the process has helped me to succeed.”
