Information and advice regarding the University Council for Admissions (UCAS) is given to students through the Pastoral System beginning in the Spring Term of Year 12. This process continues for more than a year until each student, who wishes to be, is placed by the time examination results are published. Students also have the opportunity to visit the Higher Education Fair at either Aston or Birmingham University in the summer term of Year 12.
King Edward VI Sixth Form students currently at university or in employment return to school to give advice and information to students. One to one support is given by form tutors during tutor time and during a dedicated UCAS progress check during the autumn term of Year 13. Tutors and teachers will give advice on personal statement drafts as well as providing subject specific references. All applications are rigorously checked before being sent to UCAS. We are proud of our very high levels of success with university applications, including those to Oxford and Cambridge and Russell group universities.
