Our 2023 Oxbridge students
Each year, we report on the number of students from the College who have been offered places at Oxbridge. This year 21 students have been celebrating receiving an offer of a place at either the University of Oxford or Cambridge; the two most prestigious, highest ranking, and oldest universities in England. We are hugely proud of our students, 14 of whom will be enrolling at Cambridge and 7 at Oxford in September 2023. They will be going on to study a variety of degrees, from Law to Medicine, Languages and Engineering. Back in the summer term, before applications opened, the College held an interactive session for students who were interested in applying for Oxford or Cambridge. These students had the opportunity to speak with Farnborough alumni who are now studying at these universities - they spoke about their experience of the application process and answered questions on what life is like as a student at these world famous institutions. They also had support in preparing for any Admissions tests. After completing the application process, students attended a workshop to help them prepare for their interview.
In September 2022, 61.6% of our second year students went onto Higher Education, with 18.6% attending a Russell Group University, a group of 24 leading UK universities dedicated to outstanding teaching, learning and research. These numbers are a tremendous reflection of the high quality of teaching and learning at the College.
The following students have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge this year:
Tilly, Beginners' Italian and Spanish
Nic, Computer Science
Joseph, Computer Science
Noah, Land Economy
Annabelle, Modern and Medieval Languages
Emily, Modern and Medieval Languages
Charlotte, Psychological and Behavioural Sciences
Alison Woolley, Director of Higher Education Access at the College, commented, “We are really proud of all of our students' continued dedication and hard work in working towards their chosen Higher Education routes. Competition at these universities is fierce so they should be very proud of what they have achieved. We would also like to thank our fantastic alumnus for giving up their time to guide our students. We wish everyone the best of luck in September”
