CATS student receives 2017 CIFE Award

We’re proud to report that Marwa Almadhi received a 2017 CIFE Award this April for her exceptional contribution to life at CATS London. She received the award from CIFE President Lord Lexden at a ceremony in the House of Lords.

Marwa was one of her year group’s outstanding academics and achieved four A grades at A level in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. She was also awarded an A for her Extended Project Qualification and won a place at University College London to study Biomedical Sciences. She wins this year’s CIFE College Prize not only for her academic achievements but also for being a highly responsible, articulate, caring and determined individual who contributed fully to life at CATS College.  She was well respected by her teachers and her peers and was voted Student Leader, a role which enabled her to engage with staff and represent students across a range of issues that affected the College community.

CATS London students win two 2016 CIFE Prizes

CATS London is delighted to announce that two of our best students were recognised with prizes at the CIFE Awards ceremony held in the House of Lords this March.

Cheuk Ying (Karen) Ho received a CIFE award for Sciences. Karen is an incredibly talented individual. Her ability to grasp and apply A level material was only superseded by her aptitude and willingness to communicate this understanding to her peers. She took every opportunity to do this, working well and generously with others and her contributions to class discussion were always perceptive. She attained an average of 99% in A level Mathematics, 95% in Chemistry, 96% in Biology and 93% in Physics, no small feat on a one year Fast Track A level programme. Karen was a pleasure to teach and thoroughly deserved her outstanding results.  She is now a first year medical student at university in Hong Kong and with every prospect of a successful career ahead as a doctor. She couldn’t attend the ceremony but CATS Principal Mario Di Clemente was proud to receive the award from Lord lexden (CIFE President)on her behalf.

Bruno Soares received a CIFE College Award for his outstanding contribution to college life. Bruno participated in a wide range of extra-curricular activities at the college. He was involved in the Young Enterprise Challenge, the Student Investor Challenge and was the co-editor of the CATS College Magazine. He was the Student Leader for his year group on the Student Committee. His leadership qualities and people skills were impressive and he led a number of initiatives that resulted in positive changes at the College.   Bruno was admired by both staff and students. In a college of over 50 different cultures and nationalities this was a tremendous achievement, making Bruno a true Global Citizen. He is now studying Investment and Financial Risk Management at City University, having achieved grades A*AB in Maths, Economics and History.

CATS London was founded in 2011. Students are admitted from 15-24 years of age and come from over 50 countries with the aspiration to enter university being the goal common to all and achieved by over 90%. The campus is centrally located in Bloomsbury and is in the heart of academic London, with many cultural institutions nearby, such as the British Museum, the British Library and Tate Modern. The stunning CATS London campus building overlooks Bloomsbury Square, and its classrooms and laboratories feature the latest in modern teaching technology.CATS London buildingThe college is also close to main transport links allowing students to easily navigate their way around the city, and if they wish, to explore other parts of the country. Boarding is provided at nearby Premier House (5 minutes’ walk) and Piccadilly Court (3 tube stops) and students are able to feel safe, secure and comfortable in a multi-national environment in which they are taken care of and their cultural development is encouraged. Students are taught in small groups and benefit from the commitment and expertise of specialist subject teachers, a higher education adviser and a team of personal tutors, all of whom ensure that every student’s academic and pastoral needs are prioritised.

Our varied academic pathways enable students to specialise in key subjects which will help prepare them for their future degree courses and professions.  These include Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Engineering, Law, Finance and Architecture. Business, Accounting and Economics also play an important part in our curriculum with courses suited to students who wish to learn more about the dynamic nature of the business and economic environment and with local business links which further assist this aim.  Most of the UK’s top 40 universities have accepted CATS students, proving how well our students are prepared not only through their academic results but also in their university applications. Beyond the classroom a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities is offered and students are encouraged to participate in, and to enjoy, all aspects of life at the college.
