Destinations for Higher Education

In The British School of Barcelona we are very proud of our students’ excellent results. It is their passport to some of the best universities in the world and future career success

Leavers' Destinations

The British School is very proud of the outstanding performance of our students in their (I)GCSE and A Level examinations every year (see Academic Results). Thanks to their endowment, dedication and commitment, most of our pupils get to enter their first choice university, mainly in the United Kingdom and Spain, although they are increasingly opting for places in universities in countries outside Europe, such as the United States. 

The British School believe that our role is to guide, counsel, recommend, refer, suggest, and inform in a way that ultimately finds each student’s best fit for their future. The Secondary and Pre-University team of the international british school provides a comprehensive and customised service to students to help them refine their choices and make informed decisions which will enable them to access the University which is most suitable to them personally.

Our Work Placement Programme and the university events we organise in The British School all year round (such as our annual Spanish & European University Fair in February, the UK University Tour in April, and other ad hoc University presentations) are all aimed at supporting our students in the decision making process and ensuring that they make the best possible choice.


Each year, the students of our english school attend a broad range of university destinations with most leavers accepting offers from Russell Group, and other British, Spanish and international universities.

Some of the university courses our students choose include:

  • Medicine
  • Business Management
  • International Relations
  • Law
  • Journalism & Media
  • Economics
  • Mechatronics
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Drama
  • Photography
