Life after King’s
The school has a very experienced Careers and University Advisory Department which offers pupils extensive help and advice when applying for Higher Education, whether in the UK or in the rest of the world. The vast majority of Year 13 leavers gain a place at a university of their choice.
Generally universities look most favourably upon applications from schools such as ours, as they appreciate that the multi-cultural, multi-lingual nature of our students will enrich their undergraduate life. Every year, approximately eighty pupils complete their studies at King’s College Alicante and enter the best international universities. Many of them go to the United Kingdom with many gaining places at prestigious universities such as London School of Economics, Imperial College London, Warwick University and University College London (UCL). Another group opts for Spanish institutions including both private and public universities, most of which are located in either the Madrid area or within the Valencian community. Finally, a significant group of students go on to study at top universities in the United States, such as Stanford, Harvard or Berkeley and across Europe including in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
