Oxbridge/Medicine/ Pathway Scholarship Fund
City of London Academy Sixth Form is committed to providing access to all students to higher education establishments. We realise that admission to Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry and Oxbridge are highly competitive and extremely expensive. Our Scholarship Fund is designed to help increase our students’ chances of gaining admission into such programmes of study.
Students who qualify for the Oxbridge/Medicine Pathway Scholarship Fund
Students who achieve 7 or more 8-9 at GCSE, who enrol at City of London Academy Sixth Form, are eligible for funding and support in order to help them access University courses such as Medicine, and those wishing to study at Oxbridge. Alternatively, students who by virtue of achieving excellent AS results (94%+ in 3 subjects) will be eligible in their second year for 50% of the fund.
Such students are eligible for up to £1000 in study support to help them gain admission to the above.
A student must have achieved at least 7 8-9 grades in GCSE only qualifications
The student must be studying at least 3 A level qualifications + EPQ
A student not qualifying in year 1 who achieves 94% across 3 subjects at AS level
Please note to continue receiving this fund, students are expected to maintain a minimum school attendance of 96% and be on track to achieve their target grades
Use of Fund
A student can spend the £1000 scholarship on any activity which supports their admission to a course in Medicine or at Oxbridge. This in all cases must be approved by a Deputy Director of Sixth Form. Some examples (please note that this list is not exhaustive) are listed below:
to provide access to courses such as Medilink, residential weeks and other related studies
access Oxbridge and Medicine interview preparation days
to be able to sit mock admission tests
small cash payments where it is considered appropriate to do so; for example to top up an oyster card to subsidise travel costs to taster days and meetings with mentors
to provide with equipment such as text books and further reading which provides greater breadth to course studies
