After Glenalmond

Ninety eight percent of our leavers go on to university.
Some of them will opt to take a gap year before taking up their university place.

Glenalmond College pupils leave us at the end of Upper Sixth Form as independent young men and women who have been thoroughly prepared for the next stage of their lives.

The decision about which university or career is best for a pupil is considered carefully by staff in collaboration with the pupil and his or her parents. In fact Glenalmond College assists pupils throughout their academic career, offering support and guidance on university applications and careers advice. Discussions about possible careers and suitable universities begin whenever the child joins Glenalmond whether that is in Third Form or in Sixth Form.

Advice is also given on what to do during a gap year and how to manage that time successfully.  OG applicants are also offered full assistance with university applications after leaving Glenalmond.

Glenalmond pupils who do go to university study at a wide range of institutions from Bristol, Exeter, London, Durham, Newcastle and St Andrews as well as Oxford and Cambridge.

Details of the destination universities for our pupils are available here: University Destinations . For more information about the university and careers advice we give please follow the links on the left.

Available to download is the  Upper Sixth Form UCAS Presentation 2014 and Lower Sixth UCAS Presentation November 2013 which gives information about the UCAS application process.
