Our students, working together with our well-qualified, professional staff, form a college community that’s dedicated to outstanding achievement for all. Our students speak of the college environment as being like a family. From day one they are made to feel very welcome both in and outside of their lessons. In our accommodation they make n… [+] ew friends and thrive in an truly inclusive international environment. Our students’ track record speaks for itself, and their results have established our college as one of the very best in the UK. In 2015 our A level students achieved an A*/B pass rate of 82% and, even more stunning, an A*-A pass rate of 61%. Our location in the city of Cambridge is a fusion of the everyday and the extraordinary. It is a city that has shaped our history and continues to make its mark on our future. Our History Since our foundation in 1994 Abbey College Cambridge has become one of the best sixth form colleges for international students in the UK. We have developed and maintained an outstanding record of academic success. Our students’ exceptional A level pass rates mean that we have been consistently placed at the top of college league tables since 1997. Our college community has grown significantly during this time and we now have 340 students from over 30 countries who are taught and supported by 90 members of staff. During this growth our educational ethos has remained very clear: outstanding achievement for all. Our educational offering has changed since 1994, from being initially designed for A level retaking students to now being a GCSE, Foundation and A level college specialising in meeting the needs of international students. Our college is designated as being an “Outstanding School” by the UK school inspectorate, OFSTED, as a result of achieving the highest grade in all 12 judgements made on teaching and boarding quality in the college. In July 2016 we undertook a new stage in our development by moving to a new single site, purpose built campus. Our new college campus has been designed by the staff of Abbey College Cambridge to perfectly fit the needs of our students. Abbey College Cambridge is a constituent college of the Abbey DLD Group of Colleges, which is in turn part of the Alpha Plus Group. Accommodation From September 2016 Full Board rooms will be available on site on our new campus. This boarding accommodation will be known as ‘Abbey House’ and it will complement our existing accommodation provision. Key features of our Abbey House accommodation include: 120 Spacious ensuite single rooms for students aged 13+ Healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner meals served in our on campus canteen, with a wide choice of meal options On campus coffee and snack bar Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated boarding provision Wifi access throughout (included in accommodation fee) Designated male and female accommodation floors Common rooms and communal areas with kitchenettes On site security 24 hours a day, 7 days a week Key card access means that accommodation floors can only be accessed by students who live within them College Life Our students gain the very best academic results. We achieve this through rigorous but informal teaching, small class sizes, frequent testing and expert teachers who put the interests of each of our students at the centre of everything they do. We believe that students, of any age, achieve great things through their own intelligence, imagination and initiative. But we also believe that our role is to create the structures in which this can happen. Our Students achieve their outstanding results because our teachers care about their welfare and progress. They help them develop confidence and the discipline and motivation necessary to convert their efforts into results. Personal Tutors oversee academic progress; they meet the students under their care every week.

Results and Destinations Up to 200 students from the UK and around the world come to CCSS every year to complete their secondary education before progressing onto university. In all cases, our results show that students benefit greatly from small class sizes, experienced and stimulating teaching, and individual personal tutorials. The overwhelming majority of CCSS students choose to continue their learning at universities in the UK or abroad. Many have enjoyed success at the UK’s top universities, including Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, Imperial and others. With degree subjects ranging from International Business to Law and Medicine our academic achievement is clear.

Many of our students achieve results beyond their original expectations, making our “value-added” a truly impressive statistic. We can be confident that they leave us able to pursue their ambitions, having achieved their best, with many achieving the A* grades required for the world’s most competitive universities. For example in 2015, five students received offers from Oxford and Cambridge, of whom three took up their places this September, one turned down Cambridge in favour of Durham, and one went to Edinburgh. CCSS is one of the most successful schools and colleges in the country at achieving Oxford and Cambridge place, as a higher percentage of our students achieve Oxbridge success than at any of the similar schools or colleges we know. For further detail on all 2015 results and destinations please click the link below (a full list of examination results for the last academic year is available on request from the main school office). Facilities CCSS has two central teaching sites and five boarding residences. All are located right in the heart of Cambridge within minutes of each other and of Cambridge City Centre (by foot or bike, but a little longer in a car!) Our campus reflects our style and ethos: high quality, purposeful and a million miles away from a traditional school environment. Our collegiate set-up encourages our students to make best use of first class teaching facilities, of quiet and well-equipped study rooms and of modern and well-appointed social spaces.

Boarding houses also benefit from superfast broadband that supports links with home and the best access to academic resources. Activities All students are encouraged to experience the wide range of sports, arts, cultural and leisure activities. We team up with key our cultural associates when this adds value for our students. For example we share sporting facilities with the University of Cambridge: our home football pitch is at Pembroke College where students experience high-quality facilities as well as an insight into university life. Cambridge has so much to offer and our teaching and residential sites are within minutes of indoor tennis courts, top-class sports pitches, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and sports halls. Tutors and staff The CCSS system Underpinning the unique style of CCSS is a pastoral system that encourages effective communication between all staff, students and parents. Every student is allocated a personal tutor who works closely with them and their parents, teachers and boarding staff throughout their time at CCSS. We share a common goal: to ensure that students make an effective transition to independence and responsibility. During their time at CCSS, students will be supported in achieving academic success, personal development and a rich cultural and extra-curricular experience. Working with every individual The Tutorial Team consists of over 20 experienced and dedicated staff who meet their tutees individually on a weekly basis. The “tutorial” affords protected time to consider issues such as: Help with study, time management and revision skills Monitoring progress and providing feedback Support in liaising with teaching staff to help you overcome subject specific difficulties Opportunities for discussing any personal concerns Referrals to our SEND department should particular difficulties with the learning process arise Guidance on choosing appropriate degree courses with specialist Careers Profiling Intensive assistance with the UCAS application process and personal statement preparation Applications to appropriate university information and Taster Days e.g. Engineering Experience placements/medical work shadowing/Law Workshops and Headstart Courses Encouraging you to make the most of the educational and cultural opportunities of being in Cambridge e.g. University of Cambridge open public lecture programme, and The Institute of Astronomy public lectures. Entry Requirements If you have completed GCSE examinations, the standard requirement for our 2-year A Level programme is for students to have achieved grades A* to C in at least five subjects including English and maths. If you have not been studying GCSEs we assess your application individually. As each overseas country has its own education system there is no single entry requirement. Our experience in evaluating overseas school transcripts and examination certification (from Europe, Asia, Africa, the CIS, the US, etc.) means that we will be able to make an informed decision quite quickly, based on your past or upcoming qualifications. Reports and transcripts from your current or previous schools will be important. We would always encourage coming to interview at CCSS , if at all possible, and if you cannot come in person we will talk to you by Skype video link. What English language level do I need to join CCSS? It is not essential to have a formal English Language qualification when you join CCSS, but to cope with A Level study you need an English level at least equivalent to IELTS 5.0. For the one-year A Level programme an English level of at least IELTS 6.0 is required, with at least 6.0 in the written component. For GCSE you need at least IELTS 4.5, and for our Pre-Programme a minimum of 4.0 is needed. We will make an assessment of your spoken English at interview because it is crucial for your learning that you are able to participate properly in lessons. If your first language is not English we will provide you with a programme of ESL lessons, as our requirement is to get you to a high level of English for success at university.
About The Recording Connection A division of the Recording, Radio, Film and Culinary Connection (RRFC), the Recording Connection is an industry-recognized trade school geared around providing you with practical, one-on-one training for a career as an audio engineer or music producer. Our overarching goal is not simply to equip you with the skills you need, but also to help you break into the industry by putting you in a position to gain on-the-job experience while making… [+] important industry connections. Through our revolutionary mentor-apprentice (extern) learning approach, we pair each of our students with an actual music producer or audio engineer who provides one-on-one training in a real recording studio. Our program combines a structured-yet-flexible curriculum with a large amount of hands-on training in the studio, which enables our students not only to learn the rudiments of producing, recording and mixing, but the business aspects of running a studio, as well as the inner workings of the industry itself. Since our inception in 1989, the Recording Connection has expanded its reach into all 50 states, as well as into Canada, Australia and the U.K., ultimately placing more than 11,000 students as apprentices (externs) in real recording studios across three continents. Our mentoring staff consists of actual producers and engineers in world-class studios, many of whom regularly work with Grammy-winning, Platinum-selling artists. We carefully screen our mentors to ensure they are giving our students the best education possible, as well as the best opportunities to connect with the industry in the process. The Recording Connection’s on-the-job audio training program is an excellent choice for anyone with a passion to launch a career as an audio engineer, music producer, live sound engineer, music recording artist, live DJ, composer or other industry professional. Our unique approach puts you in the right place at the right time with the right people to help you break into the industry. Possible Career Paths Within our basic audio engineering and music production course, we are able to pair students with mentors that specialize in their chosen genre or field of interest.

Real job placement assistance Thanks to our unique approach, many of our students get hired by their mentors or by connections made through their mentors. However, at the Recording Connection, we leave nothing to chance. For each of our students, we provide additional support, training and job placement assistance for up to a year after graduation. 5. Learn as an apprentice (extern), not a classroom student or an intern As a Recording Connection student, you are not one student among dozens competing for a teacher’s attention in a classroom. Nor are you simply an intern who takes out the trash (although chores are a natural part of studio life). You are an apprentice (extern) who has been assigned to a real producer/engineer for personalized on-the-job training. You aren’t just learning concepts from a textbook: you’re learning the tricks of the trade from a real pro. 6. Work on your own music career One of the things our students love best about the Recording Connection is that our course enables them to apply the things they’re learning to creating their own music. While many of our students simply want to engineer and produce for others, many others want to produce their own music. Our course enables you to up your own game. You’ll learn to record, mix and produce your own music, and even better, get it heard by actual music industry professionals who can help you get it out there. 7. Learn industry standard gear and software Since you’re learning in a real recording studio, you’ll naturally be learning to use the gear and software that the pros use, from vintage amps to virtual plugins, from analog to digital. You’ll learn the industry standard Pro Tools, as well as other programs like Logic, Reason and Ableton. And you’ll get to practice on the gear and software without competing with other students for practice time. 9. One-on-one mentoring In a Recording Connection class, there is only one student: you. No classes with dozens of other students. All the training occurs one-on-one in the studio, just you and your mentor. No glossing over things you don’t understand. Learn at your own pace. Ask whatever questions you like. This personalized attention is what helps people like you become great producers and engineers. And that’s what we’re after. 10. World-Class mentors with real album credits In other schools, teachers often have their degrees and diplomas hanging on the wall. In the real music industry, success is measured in other ways. We partner with top producers and engineers across the country to mentor our students—people who work with superstar talent such as Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, U2, Aerosmith, Kendrick Lamar and many, many others. You probably won’t find college degrees hanging on the walls of your mentor’s studio, but you might just see a few Gold and Platinum Records, and maybe even a Grammy or two.

Our Mission: Helping students succeed in a global community We believe the best way to teach English is to fully immerse our students in the language and culture of an English-speaking country. We offer a wide range of English language courses for students of all levels and ages, and aim to provide a 'home away from home' for our students, by assisting them with airport transfers, accommodation and continuous support during their stay. We believe that by being able to… [+] speak English, our students will broaden their horizons and give themselves a competitive edge. While studying in an English-speaking country we want our students to learn about the local culture and cultures of their international classmates. We believe that better cultural understanding brings people together and benefits all. When our students leave us, we want them to take with them an improved level of English, a better understanding of the world, improved opportunities and memories and experiences they will never forget. Whether you learn English for school, university or English for the workplace, we have an English course that is perfect for your needs.

The College of West Anglia has excellent facilities, including a state of the art e-learning centre, multi-gym and sports centre, restaurant, coffee shop and children's… [+] centre (nursery). There is also provision for further opportunity to study at Isle Campus and Milton. Anglia Ruskin University was awarded university status in 1992. Today, with a student population of 31,000, we are one of the largest universities in the East of England, and a large provider of part-time education. Our students are on courses leading to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as to a range of professional qualifications. In addition to being one of the most significant suppliers of nurses and teachers to the professions, we offer an ever expanding range of contemporary courses designed to meet the needs of the individual and the requirements of a knowledge-based economy. Our main campuses at Cambridge and Chelmsford attract students not only from the East of England but in increasing numbers from mainland Europe and from further afield. In addition, our University has an extensive network of contacts with institutions throughout the world, delivering courses in countries as far removed as Malaysia and Trinidad. Our vision and values In terms of vision and values we seek to build our reputation on the following: We are passionate about the advancement of knowledge and the education of students. We take university education in imaginative new directions. We are important to the region and want to be viewed in the UK and internationally as exceptional. Our key contribution is to the enhancement of social, cultural and economic wellbeing. Specifically, we are working to ensure that: More than 90% of our students will succeed, be satisfied, and will recommend us to a friend. The Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) Survey will report that 95% of students are in work or further study six months after leaving us; our graduates' earnings will match average graduate earnings; and 7% of students will leave us to start their own businesses. All judgements of our academic quality and reputation show continuous improvement and at least 95% of all external assessments are positive, including those of Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies. Every member of academic staff will be engaged in research or current professional practice in their academic discipline. Our Research Institutes ( The Childhood and Youth Research Institute; The Cultures of the Digital Economy; The Institute for International Management Practice; The Postgraduate Medical Institute; and the Global Sustainability Institute) will have national recognition. More than 90% of staff will find their work satisfying, will recommend working here to friends or family, and will receive job-related training and development each year. Students will use the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) on a daily basis, sustainability will be a feature of their experience, and most full-time campus students will be involved in activity outside the academic curriculum. To enable our academic programme to be administered and delivered affordably at home and abroad, face-to-face and online, we will maximise its efficiency through the use of student and staff friendly online systems. We shall strive to exceed national and sector benchmarks for the sustainability of our buildings and processes. We will become a leading UK provider of Professional Doctorates, work-based learning and the Accreditation of Prior Learning. 20% of our campus-based students are from outside the EU and we educate an equal number of students both on-site and off-site. 20% of our activity worldwide will be at postgraduate level and we will award at least 50 PhDs across at least 10 disciplines each year. The number of organisations we work with will grow by 5% a year, as will our external commerical earnings, while profitability will remain at least at 10%. We will mainstream our not for profit sector development work and expand activity in this area so as to become a recognised centre of excellence. Establish a Business Innovation Centre ( to support the growth of new businesses based on ideas emanating from both inside Anglia Ruskin University and in the broader community we serve) which we manage and for which we provide academic support. We will investigate, and if feasible, establish a 'Med Tech Campus' in Essex, a Science Park which uses its connections with Anglia Ruskin University ( particularly the Postgraduate Medical Institute) to attract local and international businesses to relocate to Essex because of the supply of high quality graduates and our related research base. We will increase our engagement with local communities, including those associated with our international partnerships.
University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering The Department of Engineering is the largest department in the University of Cambridge, representing approximately 10% of the University's activities by the majority of common metrics, and is one of Europe's largest integrated engineering departments. It achieves the highest standards in both research and teaching. Its international reputation attracts the best students, academics, sponsors and partners… [+] from around the world. Since its foundation in 1875, the Department of Engineering has grown to become the largest department in the University and the largest integrated engineering department in the UK with 132 faculty, 195 contract research staff and research fellows, nearly 600 research students, and over 1000 undergraduates. Growth throughout its history has been consistently strong. For instance, between 2000 and 2007, research expenditure doubled, the number of contract research staff nearly doubled, and the number of research students increased by over 40%. Rapid growth has been coupled with greater integration through the development of cross-linking themes and stronger connections with other disciplines, as demonstrated by a six-fold rise in the Department's share of expenditure on grants jointly held with other departments. In 2009, two world university rankings placed Cambridge as the best outside the USA: the Shanghai Jiao Tong University ranking in the broad field of engineering/technology and computer sciences; and the THES ranking in the field of technology. In the national Research Assessment Exercise 2008, the Department of Engineering at Cambridge came far ahead of any other institution in General Engineering and its result was not surpassed by any institution in any other engineering or scientific discipline. The Nuclear Energy MPhil programme is taught in conjunction with the Judge Business School and the Departments of Materials Science & Metallurgy and Earth Sciences, which together provide a wide range of world class courses which can be tailored to student needs across a spectrum that runs from 50/50 technology & business management, to providing knowledge and skills for research and entry into a PhD programme. Aim The aim of the Department is to address the world's most pressing challenges with science and technology by: ■attracting and retaining the best engineering academics in the world and the support staff necessary for success ■securing the brightest engineering students and teaching them to the highest standards ■working in collaboration with other disciplines, other institutions, companies, and the entrepreneurial community. Values The Department values: ■intellectual rigour ■teaching, research and connections between the two ■collaborations across disciplines ■sharing and applying research.
