Thirteen Exeter College students are celebrating after being offered places at the world-leading universities of Cambridge and Oxford.
Seven students studying at Exeter College have won places at Cambridge and six at Oxford. The offers cover a range of subjects including Biochemistry, Maths, Engineering Sciences, History, Law, Philosophy, Spanish and Arabic, and Architecture.
Exeter College is a state funded, non-selective provider that places student ambition at the heart of its mission. Students at the college are supported with personalised support and guidance with their university applications. Exeter College has very close and historic links with the universities of Cambridge and Oxford (Oxbridge).
John Laramy, Exeter College Principal and Chief Executive, said: “In the year that Oxford University has been rated as the number one university in the world, it is a truly exceptional achievement for 13 Exeter College students to receive firm offers from the universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
“As a College, we have great students and great staff, but our dedicated specialist support for University applicants, alongside our extensive enrichment programme is clearly helping our students to stand out from the crowd. I would like to congratulate the students, their tutors and our specialist team on this achievement.”
Of the thirteen students who have secured offers to study at Cambridge and Oxford, nine are members of the Exeter College Reach Academy, a programme providing opportunities to stretch and challenge their most gifted academic students and access their first choice university.
