Sixth Form Applications: Higher Education Guidance
KAA Sixth Form offers unrivalled Higher Education guidance, which encourages our students to look to their future, their path to university and onto the world of work beyond. Our unique partnerships will enable our students to prepare fully for the complexities of the university admissions process. The latest findings from the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) and Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) highlight the economic benefit students will enjoy as a result of the programmes KAA Sixth Form provides for its students.
Researchers at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), Harvard University and the University of Cambridge found that median earnings of English women around 10 years after graduation were just over three times those of non-graduates. Median earnings of male graduates were around twice those of men without a degree.
The latest research from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) shows that three-and-a-half years after leaving university 96.4 per cent of graduates were in employment and nearly 80 per cent were employed in professional jobs or undertaking further study.
Madeleine Atkins, Chief Executive of HEFCE, said “It is really encouraging to see how graduates’ early careers develop in such dynamic ways within three years, and that most graduates are in professional employment or further study. We know that on average graduates earn £100,000 more over their lifetime than those without a degree so this is further confirmation that degrees are worth it.”
From the very start of their time at KAA sixth formers are encouraged to begin the bridge into university and ensure early planning for entrance into Higher Education.
Our students benefit from seminars on how to make choices and fill out UCAS forms, one-to-one tuition on UCAS applications and personal statements, subject seminars to deepen understanding and extend learning, and mock interviews to prepare Oxbridge candidates. This Higher Education guidance will be supported by our partners Charterhouse and Godolphin & Latymer. It is unlikely that any other state sixth form could offer this level of detailed and expertly tailored university guidance, all free to students.
Our aim is that students leave us with a great enthusiasm for further academic study and with the confidence and skills they need to succeed in the real world. We are confident that the resources, partnerships and programmes we have in place are the best place for you to begin your journey onto university and graduate employment.
