Make an appointment with Mrs. O'Reilly today to start the process now. The process of applying to British universities requires a certain amount of preparation, which is why we recommend that students interested in further education in the United Kingdom start getting informed as of their Seconde year.
This gives potential UK undergraduates plenty of time to research the courses and the universities they are interested in and maybe even organise a series of visits to meet admissions officers during half-term breaks or the summer holidays. There are numerous Open Days and campus tours available during the year which give students an opportunity to see on-site facilities, check out geographical location and get a general feel for the place they might be living in for a duration of anything up to five years. There are of course international college and university days in Paris as well as talks by experienced admissions officers, so all is not lost if you are not able to cross the English Channel just yet!
