Russell Group University Admissions

Ashbourne students consistently achieve outstanding A level exam results, (66% A*/A 2021 and 47% A*/A over the past 10 years) and 57% of our graduates go on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Each A level student at Ashbourne is assigned a dedicated Personal Tutor who provides individual academic and pastoral support and guidance throughout their time at the college, which includes expert careers advice and one-to-one UCAS support, from choosing the right course, writing the perfect personal statement and interview practice all the way to accepting the best offer. We also offer specialised university application programmes for competitive courses such as Medicine, Engineering, Finance and related courses and entry to Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Director of Studies, Lee Kirby, explains how the university application system works and how students benefit from studying at Ashbourne, in the webinar video below.

Why Choose Ashbourne College?
StudentsParentsTeachers
I am very proud of the results that I have achieved. I believe that I could not have done it without the amazing support of the teachers at Ashbourne. I’ve made many friends and will not forget my time at Ashbourne as it has been the best. My next step is Medical School at St. George’s, University of London and will hopefully become a doctor

Gained responsibility and independence and has a mature approach to their studies
If I had to describe Ashbourne in three words it would be welcoming, intimate, and fun. I have never met such an eclectic group of people who all get on and are integrated with each other so well. It’s a great opportunity to get the grades that you want alongside gaining confidence and maturity
