Higher Education

Higher Education / Degree

Over 80% of King Ed’s students progress onto university study, with over 30% gaining places at Russell Group universities.

UCAS applications and personal statements are overseen and supported by students’ personal tutors, and all students are registered on the expansive Unifrog software.

Unifrog is one way students can research their options and make informed choices about Higher Education.

As well as the cross college events organised by KE Careers, we also have close links to a range of universities (see a sample below), and many of our students utilise a variety of progression programmes designed to give students a better insight into universities, courses and professions.

We have strong links with many universities, including Russell Group, with many students getting involved in various schemes and programmes. Such as:

  • University of Birmingham – Pathways programme
  • University of Warwick
  • Sutton Trust programme
  • Aberystwyth University
  • Aston University
  • Birmingham City University
  • University of Law
  • Newman University
  • Edge Hill University
