UCL Outreach

The UCL / City and Islington Sixth Form College Partnership


The success of the Partnership should not merely be measured in terms of facts and statistics. Just as important are the benefits that both institutions derive from an insight into the priorities and challenges that each faces; the opportunities extended to students to broaden their academic horizons; and the quality of the dialogue between colleagues in different phases of the education sector.

The following, however, are the tangible successes:

Applications to university

The Partnership has contributed to a steady increase in applications to university through UCAS: in 2004/5, 84% of City and Islington Sixth Form College students applied to a range of universities to continue their studies.

Since 2001, the number of students being accepted onto programmes of study at UCL has tripled. The Partners are keen to build on both these developments over the coming years.
