The Value of Independent Learning for Academic Development

Independent learning is a common phrase, yet what it is and how to nurture it might not be so clearly defined. Put loosely: independent learning is when students set themselves goals to monitor and evaluate their academic development. Or, to put it another way, it is the ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge throughout one’s lifetime.

Year 12 - Now Is The Time To Start Thinking About University

It's never too early to begin thinking about university! If you are currently in Year 12, it is worth reflecting that by this time next year your university applications should have already been submitted. Furthermore, if you are applying to Oxford University or Cambridge University, or wish to study Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Dentistry, the application deadline for 2024 entry is 15 October 2023 - only 9 months away! At this point, finishing school and starting university may seem a long way off, but the time will pass very quickly - so we advise you to use this time wisely and take advantage of the remainder of this academic year to do lots of research so you can make confident choices when the time comes.
