Description Earlscliffe College (Earlscliffe College)

The small private British college Earlscliffe College (College Earlscliffe College) is designed to teach British and foreigners aged 15-19 years, their preparation for admission to the best universities and higher schools in the UK. The college was founded in 1870 (in 2011-2012 it was significantly modernized and reconstructed), and now only about 60 people study here.

Education here combines both English traditions observed in Oxford and Cambridge, the country's best private schools, and world educational trends (for example, the level of the requirements of the American Ivy League - the community of the best universities in the US). This is a unique experience that helps students not only acquire profound, exhaustive knowledge of academic subjects, but also become fully developed, harmonious individuals who are ready to benefit the society, achieve their goals and feel comfortable and confident in any situation.

With foreign students, Earlscliffe College has been working for a long time and fruitfully - today, 25-30% of British students here, the other students form a diverse, international and multicultural community based on the principles of tolerance, equality and mutual respect. For foreigners (if English is not their mother tongue), language courses for preparing for IELTS testing are provided: without it, enrolling in English universities is almost impossible, and universities require a high level of scores (usually 6.0-7.0 and higher).

In addition to training in standard, basic educational courses, Earlscliffe College enables students to prepare for the profile tests of some faculties and specialties - for example:

  • LNAT is a law test used in law schools
  • TSA - an integrated assessment of thinking, which is used by Oxford and Cambridge universities
  • BMAT - entrance examination in biomedicine at the relevant faculties and schools
  • UKSAT is a test for proficiency, which applies profile specialties (for example, dentistry and some other areas of medicine).

In each class there are no more than 9 students: each student can count on individual attention and care, and teachers can teach students more efficiently, quickly monitoring successes and difficulties and, if necessary, adjusting the curriculum. We also note the work on vocational guidance, preparation for enrollment in universities: students are helped to create an optimal curriculum for the Sixth Form, choose a university and specialty, fill out the documents and apply, prepare for an interview with the admission committee.
