University Destinations

Millfield has a strong track record in supporting pupils in their decision-making on which university or college is best for them. 

Our Careers & Higher Education department is resourced to provide guidance to meet individual aspirations, whatever a pupil’s ambitions, whether it is Oxbridge, Russell Group, specialist colleges, American or other international universities. 

University Destinations – 2016

In 2016, a total of 65 pupils gained places to study at 21 out of the 24 prestigious Russell Group universities. Overall, our leavers applied for a range of academic and vocational courses across 72 universities in the UK, a further 23 in North America (including Yale, Berkeley, Boston College, Notre Dame), Canada (British Columbia) and Spain (IE University). In the UK, 89% of our students were accepted for university places via UCAS.

In recent years we have seen a significant increase in the number of applicants from Millfield to overseas universities, in particular USA and Canadian universities. Millfield provides specialist guidance for applications to American universities and employs a Tutor in Charge, a SAT advisor, a Virginian Fellow and a Sports Scholarship advisor. They ensure candidates get the best possible advice and are guided throughout the process.  Millfield is also one of few SAT centres in the UK which means that pupils do not need to leave the campus to take their SAT entry exam.
