Virtually all Abingdonians proceed from school to university and there is a list published each year of our leavers' destinations. Much care is given in the sixth form to the shaping of an appropriate and effective application. Advice from tutors and housemasters is combined with the expertise of specialists and the senior staff team. The University Admissions office is located in Mercers' Court, and contains a wealth of information about the multitude of courses available at universities, both in the UK and abroad. Boys are welcome to browse the prospectuses, or consult staff for assistance. The UCAS advisors form part of the team of staff dedicated to helping the Sixth Form not only with university and further education applications but also providing career guidance and help with managing academic studies.
