More than half of CIFE students entered a Russell Group University in 2021

The latest survey of CIFE students' university applications shows that, in 2021:

  • King’s College London was the University with the most places gained, followed by University College London;
  • 51% entered a Russell Group University;
  • 1044 students gained entry to a UK university in 2021, 31 went abroad including to universities in the USA and Hong Kong;
  • 61 students are studying Medicine, Dentistry or Vet Science;
  • 24 students entered a UAL college for an arts related degree;
  • 24% are studying Finance/Business/Management - the most popular course choice for the seventh year running.

These impressive university destinations to some of the most highly selective courses and institutions reflect the ambition of cife college students and the excellence of the teaching and UCAS application support that our colleges offer. These outcomes are particularly impressive when it is remembered that many ambitious CIFE students are retaking their A levels at our colleges and that entry to some competitive courses is even harder when applying second time around.
