University Destinations

A very high proportion of girls achieve places at Russell Group Universities and, equally importantly, select a vast array of degree choices, demonstrating that girls are independent thinkers, keen to pursue their own individual interests. Against a backdrop of very small numbers of women opting for courses in STEM subjects, it is pleasing to note that significant numbers opt to study Science subjects at university.

Our aim is to ensure that every girl gains a place on a course which she will enjoy at an excellent university. Aware that each girl has different needs and aspirations, we work closely with sixth formers to help them navigate the bewildering range of options: some girls choose vocational courses such as medicine and dentistry, others want to pursue pure academic subjects, while others wish to study courses in the fine or performing arts, some preferring city universities, others campus or college based sites. Whatever their choices, our staff use their expertise and experience to guide each student. We offer support with UCAS form filling, interview practice and advice to ensure girls are confident and well positioned to move to the next stage of their education.

Our support does not end when students leave school. Girls return and some will want to discuss career options with us long after they leave school. Old Edwardians also provide a network that can help support former pupils and women at different stages of their careers.

We list below recent leavers to give a flavour of the variety of courses and destinations.
