2021 University entry update

Well done to Sevenoaks students on their very successful applications to university this year.

Our students have so far received 925 offers from universities in the UK, US and internationally, and 44 students, nearly 20 per cent of the cohort, holding offers to some of the world’s top ten universities (THE World University Rankings 2021). In a challenging admissions cycle during the pandemic, we are delighted that the following offers have been received.

From UK universities, offers have been made by 69 institutions to 223 students.

We have received 67 offers from UCL, 60 from Exeter, 50 from Bristol, 49 from Durham, 38 from Warwick, and 37 from Edinburgh. Students also continue to be drawn to the excellent Year in Industry schemes offered by Bath (36 offers) and Loughborough (15 offers).

In a highly competitive year for places at Oxford University, 13 Sevenoaks students received an offer from Oxford and 18 received offers from Cambridge.

In the US, 124 offers have been made so far for 52 students to 62 institutions including the University of Chicago (5), Berkeley (4), Wesleyan (4), Georgia Tech (3), Brown (3), Johns Hopkins (2), Dartmouth (2), UPenn (2) and Yale (2).

An additional 50 students have applied to universities outside of the UK and US, with offers received from universities in Italy (Bocconi, Politecnico di Milano), Switzerland (Lugano, EHL Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne), Netherlands (Leiden, Amsterdam), Canada (McGill, University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, Concordia, McMaster, York, Waterloo), Hong Kong (Hong Kong University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong), Japan (Tokyo), and Thailand (Mahidol).

Many were also placed on the waiting lists for the most prestigious US universities, and there are outstanding applications to Ireland and Germany, so this may yet increase further.

We are delighted that our students have been offered such coveted places.
