When our students join the Sixth Form they are each provided with a Unifrog account. Unifrog is an online platform that helps students find their future. They bring all the available information on Post 18 choices into one single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications.
Going to University
We offer specialist information, support and guidance for students wishing to apply to Oxbridge and international universities. We have an excellent record of students gaining places at their first choice university, this is due to a rigorous UCAS preparation programme for students and expert Pastoral Mentors who are trained in writing references for their tutees.
In addition to the comprehensive programme of support offered in school, please refer to the links below for assistance with your UCAS application.

When our students complete their study at QEGS Sixth Form they become part of a long history of alumni. We encourage all of our students to join the QE Guild after completing Year 13. It is an excellent way to keep in touch with the school as well as to be part of the network of Old Girls.
Student finance for higher education is subject to change each year. It is important for students and parents to realise that it is their responsibility to understand implications of the most recent arrangements and make timely applications for funding. An excellent source of information on the current funding arrangements is www.ucas.com/parents/studentfinance
Student finance can be applied for online at www.gov.uk/studentfinance
High Level Apprenticeships
We realise that university is not for everyone and students who would rather enter the world of work after completing A Levels will find useful information on Apprenticeships at www.gov.uk/topic/further-education-skills/apprenticeships. We also have a programme of companies and organisations that come in to speak to students about Apprenticeship programmes and visits to careers fairs throughout the year.
