British leading universities at the BSB

In October The British School of Barcelona was proud to welcome representatives from five of the leading universities in London: The Imperial College London, King’s College London, University College London (UCL), City University London and the London School of Economics (LSE).

These world-class institutions have long-established reputation for excellence in teaching and research, which combined with the cosmopolitan atmosphere of one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities attracts students from all parts of the United Kingdom and from across the globe.

During the visit, our Sixth Form students, pupils from Year 11, and also their parents had the chance to obtain educational counselling and also first-hand information about student life. On the one hand, they could learn about the different academic disciplines at each institution, facilities, tuition fees and scholarships, the entry requirements for each programme of study, the UCAS application process, deadlines, and any conditional offers each School may consider appropriate to issue upon successful completion of the relevant requirements. On the other hand, the representatives also provided assistance on accommodation, estimated living costs, and other campus life- and London life-related issues.

At The British School of Barcelona we encourage our students to embark on an international educational experience, as both a challenging and rewarding time which will help them attain all-round excellence in their professional career. Many of our students have already enjoyed their stays at some of these London universities and some of them are currently studying in them.
