The clear aim of the majority of our students is to proceed to a university degree course after leaving MPW. A key part of the Director of Studies’ role is to provide the help and guidance necessary to make the most appropriate choices of course and institution.
We have considerable experience of the difficulties faced by students who are applying for some of the more competitive courses such as Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science and Law. We liaise with admissions tutors both before and after the publication of examination results and we have developed strong links with many of the university departments attended by MPW students in the past.
How do we help?
We hold a preliminary open meeting for lower-sixth students and their parents in the Summer Term. For those joining us in the upper sixth or retaking A levels, discussions about university entrance and application procedures begin in earnest during the initial student interview. Students are encouraged to make full use of the opportunities for interview practice provided at MPW, including the use of video facilities where appropriate.
As part of the application process, our students attend a series of seminars, each targeted at a particular degree course and led by admissions tutors and other professionals in the field. Students who are aiming for Art School follow a portfolio preparation programme. The college offers specialist preparation for UCAT, BMAT, LNAT and other university entrance tests.
University application support is also available to external students. Please contact us for more information.
