University & Careers



Our counselling team offers career and university advice and support to students from Year 7 onwards. We are fortunate to have an experienced counselling team who is familiar with the application processes for the disparate university admission systems across the world.

Each year, our graduates are accepted at, and gain scholarships to, some of the best universities worldwide. International Old Alleynians have attended Ivy League institutions and over 20 are attending Oxford or Cambridge University. Furthermore, 11 students in the DCI schools' 2015 graduating class received offers from Oxford or Cambridge.

While a large proportion of our students choose to continue their education at top universities in the UK, a significant and growing number are choosing to attend US universities. We are now able to amend our reporting system and the presentation of a student’s academic records can be adapted to further support application to universities in the US.

Preparing our students for university starts as early as Year 7. We offer integrated lessons that are part of our Senior School curriculum, which lead students to think about their strengths and interests. This will naturally lead them to further career and university exploration in Key Stages 4 and 5 as they progress in Senior School. We spend many hours with each student to guide them with admission essays and to make the right choices for university applications. Their choices often reflect the right fit for them individually – whether it is campus location and size or area of specialty, and it is not necessarily based on university ranking.
