University Application
Curriculum University Application
Wycombe Abbey Schools do everything we can to prepare pupils for university. Head of US, Assistant Head Academic, Housemasters and mistresses and Tutors work closely with the pupils in helping them select the courses best suited to their ability and interests.

A-Level courses are extremely well-regarded by universities around the world in their consideration of student applications.


Discussion about University applications begins in Grade 10. However, Grade 11 is a key period for university applications, a time when pupils should start undertaking their own research. At the same time, they should also be preparing for their IELTS, TOEFL, SAT or ACT.


We offer trips to a number of overseas universities and we strongly recommend that pupils participate, as it helps them to develop a much clearer understanding of which university to choose and to adjust their goals accordingly.


We believe that for each pupil, the best school is the one that personally suits him or her. Internal assessments, reports, school examinations, IELTS (or equivalent) and IGCSE results all give a clear indication of a pupil's progress and potential, and this is the basis on which we give our pupils our best advice on their future studies.


In recent years, a large number of pupils from WAS Changzhou have been offered places at leading universities around the world, including Cambridge, Imperial, LSE, Edinburgh, Warwick and NYU. We aim to follow in the steps of our sister school and provide our pupils with equally good opportunities.
