University Offers News

Written by Palma College. Posted in Newsletters

As always at this time of year, the students are very excited as they are receiving offers of places on degree courses from universities, firstly from the UK but also from further afield.

‘This year has demonstrated to me how the world of work is changing and the degree courses on offer have developed to reflect this change in society.  One of our young students has been offered an unconditional place at university in the UK to study Cyber Security.  This is an obvious reflection of the diversity of long term changes that lie ahead for young people.’

Other offers are for courses such as: Biomedical Engineering; Biomedical Science; Business Management and Finance; English & Creative Writing; English Literature & Psychology; Computer Game Applications; Fashion Design; Hospitality and Film Production.  Three students have received unconditional offers based on their personal statements and AS grades.

Applications are also in progress for universities in France, Italy and Holland as well as Spain.  The depth and breadth of the knowledge of the staff ensures that each student is appointed a teacher who is familiar with the application process of specific countries.  The Head of UCAS, Jill Conway, regularly attends training in the UK to ensure she is up to date with procedures and new developments and can assist each student in their research and application process.

As the Head teacher states ‘Here at Palma College we work closely with each student and their families to find the best next steps for them, whether it is in Higher Education, a GAP year or the world of work.  Each student is unique and travels their own pathway, but we are proud of all of their achievements.’
