University offers 2020: UK

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

From UK universities, 1036 offers have been made by 64 institutions to over 200 students. This is a significant increase in the total number of offers made compared with last year. 

We received 76 offers from UCL, 72 from Durham and 79 from Exeter, the three universities with the highest number of Sevenoaks applications. Warwick was also popular choice for Sevenoaks students this year, and we received 50 offers, while a growing number of students are drawn to the excellent Year in Industry schemes offered by Bath (34 offers) and Loughborough (23 offers).

High numbers of offers came from Imperial College London (29), Edinburgh (45) and St Andrews (30).

In a highly competitive year for places at Oxford University, 17 Sevenoaks students received an offer from Oxford and 14 received offers from Cambridge. 


University offers 2020: international

In the 2019-20 academic year, 47 students made applications to 68 different US colleges, making a total of 279 applications.

They received 101 offers, including 22 offers to the top ten US universities and 46 to the top 20 US universities (using THE data). We were delighted with these results, which include offers from Stanford (3), Harvard (1), Yale (2), UC Berkeley (6), Johns Hopkins (2), Chicago (5) and UPenn (3).

These are complemented with 11 offers from Canadian universities including 9 to the top 3 universities in Canada: the University of Toronto (4), the University of British Columbia (1), and McGill (4) and 2 offers from Hong Kong: Chinese University Hong Kong (1) and from Hong Kong University (1).

Many were also placed on the waiting lists for the most prestigious US universities, so even more of our students may be attending top universities.

We are delighted that our students have been able to secure such coveted places.

Furthermore, students have been offered places within Europe at the University of Bocconi in Italy, Erasmus, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and The Polytechnic University of Milan.
