Case Studies

Rosie

  • A-Level results obtained: Biology (A), Chemistry (A), Mathematics (A)
  • Destination: University of Edinburgh to study Medical and Biological Chemistry

It’s been a wonderful experience studying my A-levels at Abbey College Manchester. The small class sizes meant that my teachers were able to individually tailor their lessons towards us and ensure that we received all the support required.


Ronald

  • Course taken: International Foundation Programme (Engineering Pathway)
  • Destination: University of Bristol to study Computer Science

“I decided to study at Abbey College Manchester because of its city centre location in one of the UK’s busiest cities. I knew Manchester because of their two world-class soccer teams but when I came. I discovered so much more about the city, such as the amazing places to eat and shop, all so close to Abbey College’s location.

Also, the college has a very high quality of teaching which I experienced for the two years I studied there. All the members of staff were approachable and always off ered to help if I needed it, whether that is to help me understand complex ideas in class or the university application process. I will always be thankful to Abbey College Manchester for this.”


Yunjiu

  • Studied Maths (A*), Further Maths (A), and Physics (A)
  • Destination: University of Manchester to study Aerospace Engineering

“I came to study A Levels at Abbey College Manchester. At first I was really nervous about studying away from home and not knowing the language very well but I do not regret coming here for one second. I have made many great friends,
learnt a lot about British culture and have fantastic memories of my time here. I received great help with my English by attending IELTS classes which were vital in helping me understand my subjects.

The college is quite small and so you feel part of a community where people want to help each other. My teachers were always there for extra help if I needed them and their advice during the university applications process was really good and I have now managed to gain a place at a great university doing the subject I always dreamed of doing.”
