King Edward's College
Current International Students will act as mentors and buddies once you arrive. They will show you around the campus, help you settle in and generally make sure that you're happy and settled.
The college campus, in historic Stourbridge, is located in the middle of the UK, close to England’s second largest city, Birmingham. The college remains on its original site and has inspired generation after generation of learners for over 450 years.
44% of our students accept offers from the prestigious Russell Group of universities and the number accepted by Oxford and Cambridge is increasing, due in part to the excellent strategic partnership with Cambridge University. King Edward’s acts as Central England Regional Hub for Cambridge University, ensuring that our most academic students receive excellent opportunities - in advance of their university application - to meet and work with academics and admissions tutors from both Oxford and Cambridge.
After a meeting with [a previous Vice Principal], I found out state schools were not like what people talk about. It's possible for me to go the university I want as long as I work hard. And King Ed's is in a nice small town and living with host family can help me know the country more.
