Post-16 Students (Second Year A-level, University Foundation Programme, Second Year BTEC)

You will submit your university applications in your final year at Bosworth College. Our individualised support will help you to make a very competitive application, including;

  • A weekly seminar programme for all A2 students. In the Autumn term this focused on support for UCAS and other university applications, such as a workshop to help with the online UCAS application, plus appointments with one of the specialised UCAS team to discuss your personal statement, university and course choices. The focus then changes to workshops, such as how to make a positive impression, interview skills and preparing for open days
  • You will continue to meet regularly with your Personal Tutor for individual support and advice
  • Students can consult their Course Director or Director of University Admissions for specific advice about their applications
  • We will arrange a practice interview for any student on request
  • You could attend some of the presentations given by Universities in College to ask questions about your application
  • All UCAS applications and personal statements are checked by an experienced member of staff before they are submitted
