  • Will I need to sit an entrance exam or interview?   

    As part of the admissions process, prospective students are invited to an informal interview. This is an opportunity to talk about your strengths, academic interests, and hobbies, and discuss your personal goals – including university or career aspirations.

    International students who don’t have IGCSE qualifications in English or maths will also be asked to sit an entry test. We may ask you to complete an English language assessment, too. If you’re applying for one of our scholarships, we’ll invite you to sit a test in the relevant subject.
