Higher Education and Careers at Epsom College
Head of Higher Education and Careers: Roxanna Harrop.
Careers education begins during a pupil's first year at the College and continues as part of the PSHE curriculum.
In the 5th form all pupils receive Career aptitude testing and guidance through the Independent Schools' Careers Organisation (ISCO) FuturewiseProgramme. Parents may follow this process online. The Morrisby profile, together with consideration of academic ability and discussion between parents and House staff, forms the basis for advice on AS choices and possible university courses. Following the GCSE examinations, pupils have the opportunity to participate in the College's work experience scheme run in cooperation with Trident.
There is an extensive programme of careers education and guidance in the Lower Sixth, including a Higher Education Conference and an evening covering the World of Work, where pupils in the Sixth Form have the opportunity to meet a wide range of distinguished speakers. Pupils are advised to undertake further work experience and may contact Old Epsomians from our database for help. Each Lower Sixth pupil creates a career profile and draft UCAS form in preparation for the Upper Sixth. Throughout this year and into the Upper Sixth we offer one-to-one advice on university courses and an interview skills programme to help pupils gain access to appropriate courses and institutions. The careers advisors are always available for consultation at any stage during a pupil's College career (and often afterwards).

University Advice on Subject Choice
Decisions on what to study at GCSE and A level can have a major impact on what students can study at degree level. The Russell Group, which represents 24 of the UK's leading universities, has published a guide, which aims to help students to make an informed decision when choosing their courses for post-16 education. The guide will also be of use to parents and advisors. Learn more
