Ex-Langdon School, age 19
Studied A-levels in mathematics (A), chemistry (A), biology (A) and AS history (A) at NewVIc.
Now studying medicine at London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London.
"NewVIc has so many extra-curricular activities and medicine is so competitive, you need to set yourself apart. The work experience team helped me to get a two week placement at Royal London Hospital where I did ward rounds, observed surgery and spoke to experienced surgeons.
NewVIc’s Honours Programme also helped a lot, as I got to visit Oxford and other top Russell Group universities. I also won the exhibitioner prize at NewVIc, which meant I was able to spend a week in Cambridge and study with a medical professor."
Ex-Plashet School Age 19
Studyied A-levels in English literature (A*), government and politics (A) and history (A*).
Now studying history at St. Hilda's College, Oxford University.
"Teachers at NewVIc are supportive; they spot potential right away and try really hard to get the best out of their students. I also was inspired by former NewVIc students who have gone off to achieve my own aspirations. The Honours Programme has given me the drive to become a high achiever through specialised teaching and opportunities."
Studied A-levels in chemistry (A), maths (A), biology (A) and an AS-level in further mathematics (A).
Now studying biology at Merton College, Oxford University.
"I was amazed at how much attention every single student receives at NewVIc. As an Honours student, I was part of the UCL link programme, which was extremely useful. I also attended two days at Oxford University, which resulted in my decision to apply there. People often think they cannot go to a good university because of their background, but with a decent amount of work, talent and a good place to study, anything’s possible. "
Ex-Kingsford Community School Age 18

Through NewVIc, I have also been able to do work experience at Kings College Hospital and St Thomas’s Hospital."
