“It is the variety of destinations that really stands out for me. As well as the lawyers and medics and historians, we have students opting to study Social Sciences at France’s acclaimed Sciences Po University or accessing the prestigious Deloitte training scheme for Accountancy. To have students with such contrasting futures ahead of them, be it Engineering at Cambridge or Music at Durham it is ever more important that the individual students’ stories are not lost in any set of results.”
