An admissions programme to help support young people in Ark Schools make competitive and confident applications to Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
The free programme supports students beyond just their grades and helps them prepare for interviews, assessments and admissions tests through ongoing mentoring, guidance and university visits.
Year 12 students, selected for their academic potential, are invited to apply for the programme in consultation with teachers and sixth form leaders. Across the year, they gain skills, experience, confidence and knowledge that will not only be useful for their university application but will also help them succeed at school and in their future careers.
Ark is collaborating with businesses, universities and other third sector organisations to provide students with the additional support they need to make competitive applications to Oxbridge.
Project Healthcare is a programme that supports Year 12 and 13 Ark students to learn about the range of healthcare courses and careers available to them and to make well-informed decisions about their first steps into the healthcare sector after school.
The programme also supports Medicine and Dentistry applicants from Ark schools to prepare for interviews and admissions assessments.
Medicine and Dentistry are among the most competitive university courses in the UK and we want to ensure that Ark students with ambitions to pursue these pathways have the support they need to realise their potential.
Access to Apprenticeships
We support mentoring and coaching programmes which are delivered by corporate partners including Bloomberg, Capgemini, EY and British Airways. These programmes help Ark students explore their career options, choose the right apprenticeships to apply to and prepare for interviews, assessment centres and reasoning tests.
