University Destinations – ECP graduates heading off to top universities

2018 has been another successful year. ECP graduates are heading off to top universities in the UK, Europe and North America including the University of Oxford. A total of 69 ECP graduates have secured places at some of the world’s most prestigious universities.

82% of those students going on to university this year have achieved their first choice of university. 

A total of 91% will be going to their first or second choice.


Mark Revan Rangotis will be taking up a place to read Biomedical Sciences at Oxford. He will be joining 2017 graduate, Greg Buczko, who is about to start his second year there, reading Economics and Management.

Russell Group Universities

Five students are off to University College London (UCL). They will be studying subjects as diverse as Computer Science, Geography, Linguistics and Medicinal Chemistry.

UCL is ranked third in the UK after Oxford and Cambridge.

UCL is one of the twenty four members of the elite Russell Group, often referred to as the ‘Premier League’ of UK universities. Others off to Russell Group universities include:

  • three graduates who will be studying at Kings College London,
  • four students to Queen Mary University London,
  • other students taking up places at Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Manchester, Warwick and York.

University of St Andrews

In addition, two students will be going to Scotland, to the University of St Andrews, where Prince William studied Art History, to read Biochemistry and Computer Science.

The Netherlands

But not all our graduates are heading to the UK. Other universities on the list include Amsterdam and Delft in The Netherlands.

The Czech Republic

Other destinations include ČVUT, VŠE and five students will be studying Medicine at Charles University.

The English College prides itself on offering a first-class education to help our students develop into well-rounded individuals, capable of adapting to life after school and going on to have successful and happy lives and careers. When it comes to where and what to study at university, the aim is to give them the widest possible choice. So we are very proud of the Class of 2018’s results and of the Upper School Team and all the teachers whose support helped our students to achieve them.
