University & Career Guidance

Supporting students through every stage

At Chelsea Independent College we have a proven track record of helping students gain admission to the top universities.

As a leading London sixth form college, we provide not only an excellent education, but also the skills needed to stand out from the crowd. When our students apply for university, they are able to demonstrate personal maturity and a genuine interest in their chosen subject, as well as the potential for future development.

We guide our students through every stage of their university selection and application. One-to-one UCAS advisory sessions, exceptional teaching and specialist training programmes put students in the best possible position for entry into their desired university.

We maintain close relationships with admissions tutors at many leading universities and fully understand the qualities they look for. We organise visits from top Russell Group universities including LSE, UCL and Imperial College. 

We also offer individual specialist advice and guidance, from our own Oxbridge staff, to any student aspiring to study at either Oxford or Cambridge. For students invited to university interviews, we provide in-depth training including voice projection, body language and background reading, as well as mock interviews with academics from leading universities.

Finally, we understand that some students look beyond the UK when choosing a university. As well as embracing and supporting this attitude, wherever the destination country, CIC offers its students access to top expertise in US Ivy League admissions processes and can also provide unique support to those applying to top institutions in Asia. Our strong links with universities in the region, most notably with Shanghai Jiao Tong University – in the top-three in China – mean that CIC students have the opportunity to undertake short placements overseas, an experience which will be particularly well regarded by UK and US university admissions tutors.

In addition to our careers evenings and skills-focused events, students at Chelsea Independent College benefit from their very own online employability hub. This portal provides them with much more than just news and practical information; they can also access and apply directly for high-quality internships and work experience.
