St Benedict's University Destinations 2019

This year, 81% of St Benedict's Sixth Form leavers gained places at their first choice university, and 69% are off to top Russell Group universities. Congratulations to all! 

  • 81% of all students gained places at their first choice university
  • 69% received offers from Russell Group universities (up from 53% last year)
  • 5 Oxbridge places this year: 3 at Oxford and 2 at Cambridge
  • 22 students accepted unconditional offers, from prestigious Russell Group universities (including Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Bristol and Manchester) and well regarded non-RG universities, such as Reading
  • 3 students have accepted offers from universities overseas: 2 in Canada and 1 in USA

(A full list of university destinations can be found below.)

This year has seen a very strong showing of offers and places across Exeter, Leeds, Nottingham and Bristol, with more interest in studying joint subjects, combining Languages with Business, and Economics with Geography, for example.

In the meantime, universities are continuing to expand courses which include a practical application and which are run in partnership with major employers: eg Exeter's new finance degree with JP Morgan, and a similar new engineering programme via EDF.

Students are given lots of support with their course choices and applications by the Careers Department throughout the sixth form years. There are one-to-one higher education interviews, a whole year group visit to the UCAS Higher Education fair at the University of Surrey, and information evenings on the application process. Regular careers talks are given, often by parents and alumni from many different professions and pathways. There is also guidance in ‘How to make your CV stand out, and how to shine at interviews.

The St Benedict’s Careers Fair takes place every other year and is our largest event, with almost 160 representatives from over 120 organisations, attended by over 800 children and parents.

Information is also given on alternative pathways, such as degree apprenticeships and workplace-based higher education, and on the advantages of applying to universities overseas.

Finally, all students have access to work experience opportunities, with paid and unpaid work experience contracts publicised on the St Benedict’s Connect platform. 

Wherever they're going this autumn, we wish all our St Benedict's Sixth Form leavers all the very best as they begin this exciting new phase in their lives!
