Access to Birmingham
Swanshurst School has been a steady feeder school for A2B applications over recent years. From 2015/2016 until 2017/18 we received 33 applications to the scheme. Of those, 24 students received offers from the University and 9 entered.
As a result of our outstanding relationship with Swanshurst, they were selected to trial our new online applications portal. Consequently we saw an 84% increase in A2B applications this year of which 20 students received offers to study at the University of Birmingham for September 2019. During the online application portal trial, the school was instrumental in providing user feedback which has been instrumental ahead of our full rollout.
