Futures Choices

Marlborough’s Futures Department is pleased to support our pupils’ aspirations as they look at next steps. Whether a pupil is interested in studying in the UK or abroad; attending a renowned university, institute or a specialist school; securing a coveted apprenticeship or scholarship; and however varied the subject of interest, the team can provide expert guidance and practical advice on how to achieve that goal. In the carousel below, you can hear from eleven of our Sixth Form pupils about their varied and exciting higher education journeys.

Design at IE Business School, Madrid

I am going on to study Design at IE Business School, Madrid. I chose this course as I wanted to do something creative while also furthering my knowledge of the business world. The course especially appealed to me as it offers education in specific design applications and machinery which can be otherwise extremely intimidating and inaccessible to students. The course also promotes and provides frequent and impressive work placements and internships which will help me to graduate with an impressive CV. Specifically, Mr Twohig and the Art school have impelled me to expand my knowledge of art and experiment with different formats, while Ms Langdale pushed my confidence to go abroad and curate my application. While I don’t know what I want to do afterwards, I am confident that I will have broad horizons and choices after immersing myself into a different country, culture and refining my knowledge on all areas of design.

US universities

In the summer before my Upper Sixth year, I set out to complete the personal essay for my Common Application which is the main application US universities use. I had already identified my top schools. I rated them as “safety” school, “likely” schools, and “reach” schools, making sure I had a good mixture of the three types.  My two older sisters had both used the ED (early decision) option for their US university applications and I decided to do the same. I applied on November 1st to the University of Virginia, which is my top choice. I was notified by UVA in the middle of December that I was being placed on the waitlist for decision. With that news, I set out to finish the rest of my American university supplemental essays. In the end, I applied to a total of 16 universities. I am humbled to say that I received partial scholarships to University of Vermont, University of Oklahoma and University of Arizona. I was thrilled to be admitted to the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University in upstate New York. Syracuse is my top choice until I hear from my waitlist position at the University of Virginia.

Medicine at the University of Exeter

excellence in medical education and research. The University’s commitment to innovation and its emphasis on early clinical exposure strongly appealed to me. Additionally, Exeter’s supportive learning environment promotes critical thinking and collaboration, qualities crucial for a future healthcare professional. In preparation for this commitment, Marlborough College has provided me with a solid foundation in academics and a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. The diverse opportunities provided to me by the College have helped to instil a strong work ethic and a passion for supporting others. After university, my long-term goal is to be a surgeon, and through dedication, continuous learning, and compassionate care, I will endeavour to improve patients’ outcomes and positively impact the lives of individuals and communities.
