University Success

As our Year 13 students begin their preparations for upcoming examinations, we wanted to take this opportunity to share with you how successful they have been securing university acceptances. As a school we couldn’t be prouder of our students and this has been reflected in the quality of acceptances they have secured at prestigious universities around the world.

It’s not just the universities our students will be studying at we are proud of, it is also the programmes they have decided to study; Biology, Business & Management, Economics and Finance, Linguistics, Language Science, Physiology, Pharmacy and Sociology, just to name a few! 

So far, our students have been accepted at Red Brick universities in the UK. These Red Brick universities are known for offering a wide range of high-quality academic degree programmes and are rated among the top 100 universities in the world. Other acceptances have been secured at Russel Group universities these are world class, research intensive universities in the UK. Our students have also gained acceptances at other Top 10 ranked universities in the UK and Top 50 ranked universities in the US along with world class universities in Hong Kong. So far our students have received acceptances at: 

  • University of Manchester

Huge congratulations to our students for gaining these acceptances, we wish them the very best of luck in their examinations. 

Gaining acceptances to these kinds of universities, doesn’t just happen by accident, YCIS Chongqing provides an excellent University Guidance programme to support our students with their educational journey. Our students receive substantial guidance and support in choosing their IGCSE and IBDP subjects at the key decision points.

The University Guidance Programme includes a comprehensive structure over two years, exploring options and developing skills in Year 12 and moving on to focused support in Year 13. Support for SAT’s is also offered to students. All students receive a one-to-one support in Year 12 to formulate their individual action plan. Drop-in clinics are offered for students to receive help on university choices, writing personal statements and personal essays. We are confident that the personalized support and advice available in Year 12 & 13 means there should be no need to seek help elsewhere. 

Nearly all of our students move on to university with most attending their first choice universities. The majority of our students apply to universities across the globe, we offer advice and individual support on all major destinations from the UK, US and worldwide.
