Why students choose NewVIc
Last year students from more than 150 different schools chose to pursue their studies at NewVIc. Here are just some of the reasons why –
The opportunity to take part in a range of extra-curricular activities from music and sport to volunteering and debating
“NewVIc has such a wide variety of enrichment activities so it’s not all about studying hard. I’ve been learning the drums through the music bursary scheme, and joined clubs that helped me meet lots of new friends.”
Israel Kolade, studying A-level biology, chemistry and mathematics on the Medicine Pathway.
Experienced, dedicated teachers that help every student achieve their best
“The teachers here couldn’t be more helpful and supportive. If ever I have a query about something, I know I can go straight to my teachers and resolve it. The regular tutorials are useful as they let me know how I’m getting on and what I can do to further develop in the subject.”
Emma Pragnell, studying level 3 BTEC extended diploma performing arts and AS-level dance.
A vibrant, welcoming student community
“I really like the atmosphere at NewVIc and the feeling of being part of a close community. Everyone is so friendly and it’s really diverse, there is something here for everyone and anyone to get involved in!”
Huong-Thuy Nguyen, studying A-level economics, maths and further maths on the Economics Pathway
In 2011 over 750 students progressed to higher education with the help of dedicated tutors and careers advisors
“My tutor was really helpful when it came to preparing my personal statement and university interview practice. NewVIc also provided interesting sessions on historical events and contemporary issues such as race, religion and politics which are all relevant to the course I applied for.”
