Studying in the US support

The 'Studying in the US talk’ is a general talk given by external experts which provides general information about what it is like to study in the US, the application process and requirements, and sports scholarships. This is open to Bradfield pupils as well as pupils from the local community. It is targeted at Yr. 12s however any interested Yr11s that express a particular interest may also attend.

One-to-one support/ advice on studying in the US and the application process is available from the Bradfield College Horizons team. Available to Bradfield pupils, pupils from the local community and their parents.

ACT/SAT pre-test tutoring is tutoring run by UES Education, at Bradfield College for Yr 12 pupils who wish to prepare for ACT, or SAT, pre-tests for their US application. Open to Bradfield pupils and pupils from the local community. There is a charge of approx. £740 for this seven week course (usually x3hrs over seven Sunday afternoons).

Aims

The Horizons Department at Bradfield has developed a programme, using both external and internal expertise, to advise pupils wishing to explore the option of studying in the US and to support those who wish to apply.  We are happy to share our knowledge and to support other local schools to help their pupils (and their parents) gain a better understanding of the US higher education options and to make a strong application should they choose to apply.

Background
