Each student in the Sixth Form who wishes to apply to University follows the UCAS process to submit their application. MBS staff are trained UCAS advisors so that can provide individual support to all our students about the process.
The UCAS programme begins in Year 12 when students are introduced to UCAS and they students begin to research potential University courses and attend University Open Days.
From the beginning of Year 12, students will be enrolled on Unifrog. An online platform to search for university courses, collate information that they will need for their applications and guide them through the process. It is a platform that enables both teachers and parents to track a student’s progress through the applications.
At MBS we take the pathways that our students will pursue once they have left us very seriously. Our goal is for all students to go onto further academic study, apprenticeship or employment.
The Sixth Form team are focused on how MBS will support in your journey after you successfully complete your A-levels. With our dedicated careers officer, we offer individual support for university and apprenticeship applications. The journey begins in Year 12 with a careers programme to help you research and plan, ready to submit your University applications early in Year 13. Students are provided with clear guidance on finding the right course for them and are prepared for the demands of extras such as interviews, and any additional tests to study Medicine, and for Oxbridge.
Our careers programme provides many opportunities to develop skills and build confidence. These could include:-
