Information On Supporting Your Progression To University

Supporting Your Progression To University

University of Bristol

We have close links with the University of Bristol and many year 12 and year 13 students participate in the Access to Bristol and Pathways to Health Science programmes every year. In 2019-20, 15 students from Cotswold Edge Sixth Form took part.

Students attend a series of sessions on Wednesday afternoons during the autumn or spring term. The sessions give an idea of what it is like to study at the University of Bristol, working with academics and current students who can offer advice and guidance about higher education and their subject area.

Taking part shows a commitment to further study that strengthens university applications. Students who successfully complete the programme are guaranteed a contextual offer/interview from Bristol, a top-ten UK University (QS World University Rankings 2020).
