Year 13 Charlotte is celebrating this week having received offers to read Social and Political Sciences at the universities of Bath, Durham, Warwick and York – all UK Top 10 or Russell Group institutions.

Part of the prestigious Russell Group, Durham, Warwick and York all rank in the UK Top 10 for social and political sciences.

Warwick’s Politics and International Studies department places 4th in the UK in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021 whilst in the QS World University Rankings York places 4th in the UK for Social Policy and Administration.

The University of Bath consistently ranks in the UK Top 10 and is placed 6th for graduate prospects in the Sunday Times University Guide.

Charlotte said: “I am so happy that I have received offers from my universities. I am also so grateful to the school for providing me with opportunities such as the student newspaper club, an independent psychology project and all the extra support that my teachers have given me. After university, I am hoping to do a master’s degree and work in international politics, and the school has definitely provided me with the ambition to do this.”

It’s been an exciting year for Charlotte who in the autumn received a high commendation award in the John Locke Institute Essay Competition. She was the only student in Cornwall to make the cut.

The John Locke Institute, based around the universities of Oxford and Princeton, runs the world’s largest essay competition with entrants from over 100 countries. All of the essay prizes are judged by senior academics from the University of Oxford.

Charlotte currently studies A Level Psychology, English and Geography as well as undertaking an EPQ focussed on sports psychology. Her ultimate goal is to work for a non-governmental Think Tank.
