York College is the largest provider of students to university in the region, with nearly one thousand students, studying a range of A Level, Vocational, Access and Foundation Degree courses, submitting UCAS applications this year. The College is pleased to announce that three students have received offers to study at Oxford and Cambridge universities.
Scarlett Barclay (formerly of Fulford School) to study Architecture at Newnham College, Cambridge
Callum Moran (formerly of The Snaith School, Goole) to study Law at Jesus College, Cambridge
Matthew Pritchard (formerly Ashville College, Harrogate) to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics at New College, Oxford
Miggy Biller, Head of Division for Maths and co-ordinator of Oxbridge applications at York College, says: “We encourage all high-flying students to apply to the very top universities. We are delighted that Scarlett, who is studying the Art Foundation course at College, having earlier achieved excellent A Level grades, has been given an unconditional offer. Matthew has also been given an unconditional offer, having already achieved impressive A Level grades too, and is currently studying Government & Politics and Economics with us. Callum, who is sitting A Levels in Maths, Economics, Law and Government & Politics in the summer, has a conditional offer for Cambridge University. We will continue to work with all three of them and every student who has applied to universities up and down the country, to support them on the final leg of their studies.”
York College is holding an Oxbridge Event on Tuesday 22nd March (6.30pm for a 7.00pm start) for Year 10 and Year 11 students aiming to go to one of the top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.
