Entrance to university has become increasingly competitive and complicated in recent years, yet the majority of Brampton students gain places at Russell Group universities in fiercely contested areas such as Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science, Law, Economics, Psychology and English.
For example, in 2023, 64% of our students achieved a place at a Russell Group university for some of the most competitive courses: 8 students achieved a place to study Medicine; 10 a place for Economics; and 3 a place for Law.

For the first time in my life, I truly enjoyed studying. The combination of concise and interesting lectures, with informal teacher-student relationships enabled me to participate fully and appreciate the subjects I was taking. The university preparation was also great. By checking my personal statement and giving thorough practice for my interviews, the careers staff helped me gain offers from various medical universities. At the moment I am reading medicine at Bart’s and the London.
Brampton College produces its own preparation pack on applying for university and there is a special programme for applicants to medical science degrees, including a regular medical forum. This programme consists of seminars, lectures, mock interviews and preparation for the UKCAT and BMAT examinations. In order to help our first year A level students decide on the career path they wish to follow or the degree course they wish to apply for, we organise a series of talks from university admissions tutors and careers representatives. They also attend events organised by UCAS and undergo two week’s work experience in the summer. Parents of first year A level students are invited to a meeting on the application process with visiting speakers from university.
