University Advice

At Tring School over 85% of our Year 13 Leavers go on to study at University and some take a gap year before applying and moving on to Higher Education.

We have a dedicated UCAS Coordinator who works with students from March of Year 12 right through to A Level results and beyond, to provide support, information and guidance.

We provide an extensive programme of support for Sixth Form Academically Most Able students, including those who apply to Oxbridge.
The UCAS website provides comprehensive information for students and parents and we highly recommend that you take a look.  It is also worth looking at UCAS TV as there are numerous clips that provide essential information.

Tring School also offer all Year 11, 12 and 13 students the Unifrog facility which is a great tool to help students search for and compare university courses.  Students just need to use their email address as the username and the password that they have been emailed.  If it cannot be located, please contact a member of the Sixth Form Team.  The course search facility on the UCAS website is also invaluable for looking for courses and linking into university websites.
