US University Applications

This project is an opportunity to share expertise in the area of applying to US universities.  As fees have risen for UK universities opportunities to attend university in the USA have risen as an alternative.  Woldingham School has been in consultation with the Head of Sixth Form at Oxted School to provide awareness of the applications process and to facilitate support for their students.

The aim is to provide Oxted students with assistance with the requirements and timing of the application process as they explore alternatives to UK universiites and educate them about opportunities through the Sutton Trust and Fulbright programmes.

Impact

The anticpated outcomes include development of a plan to confidently offer US and Canadian university enrolment as a viable option for Oxted School's students.

Frequency and duration

It is envisioned to become an ongoing project between the two schools.
