Success Stories – Toby Hale, Alfred University, Class of 2018

“Alfred University has not only broadened my mind and given me a true college experience, but it has also become a home for me. Playing on the American football team at Alfred has also introduced me to a diverse group of guys and a cohesive family atmosphere.”

As an international student with ties both in England and in the United States, Toby’s unique global perspective helped him to easily integrate into college life, where he began his studies at Alfred University in Fall 2014.

Toby has taken advantage of exploring new programs and courses, and by working with his advisors, has found the major that best suits his future dreams and career goals.

Success Stories – Coco Lam, Dean College, AA Class of 2016

“Enrolling at Dean College has opened my eyes to the vast potential I possess as a student and also the unique skills and experiences I can offer to all my classes. The highly supportive learning environment has made reaching academic success less of a competition and more of a personal gain in self-development, and I am extremely humbled by the achievements I’ve made ever since coming here.”

Success Stories – Lucrezia Butti, Alfred University, Class of 2016

“My incredible time spent at Alfred University provided me the almost unique opportunity of being a triple major in political science, comparative culture and global studies. During my three years at Alfred, I met many wonderful people who became friends. I am pursuing my Graduate degree at Johns Hopkins University and would like to become a diplomat.”

Russell Group of Universities Guide – What to Study at Sixth Form – UK


The Russell Group of Universities has produced this guide because they think that it is really important for all young people to have clear information about how the subjects that they choose to study in the sixth form or at college can affect their options at university and their chances in life.  That way, they can make well-informed decisions.

As a group of 24 leading universities in the UK, they want to help ensure that young people are well-informed. They have developed this guidance in close consultation with admissions staff and managers in all Russell Group universities and with very helpful advice from the Institute of Career Guidance. When it comes to choosing your A-levels or other advanced level qualifications, it can be tempting simply to choose subjects that you enjoy and which interest you. But it’s also important to think a bit further ahead and to consider what you might want to do in the future.

If the idea of going to university appeals — whether or not you know which subject you want to study — having the right information now will give you more options when the time comes to make up your mind. There’s no getting away from the fact that the subjects you study in the sixth form or at college will determine which degree courses will be open to you in future.
