British-based Learning with an International Perspective

University Destinations


Reflecting the strong British ethos of the school, most of our graduates attend university in the UK. However, increasing numbers study in North America, Continental Europe, and Australasia. The Careers & University Guidance Team has dedicated counsellors for each of these areas and experience of the higher education opportunities and application systems worldwide. The vast majority of our students secure their university of first choice. Follow the links on the right to see the university destinations of recent Tanglin graduates.
