Students at Howell’s Co-Ed College are as ambitious for their futures as we are.

Our College Careers Advisor offers a wealth of insight, expertise and opportunity to encourage, guide, support and embolden the students as they strive to find the right path for them. A personalised programme for UCAS applications ensures that our students are accepted at top national and international universities.

Regular higher education and careers events are held, including conferences aimed at future medics and lawyers, mock interviews and audition practise, careers specialist interviews, networking evenings, and specialist provision for Oxbridge applications. We organise presentations from both Oxford and Cambridge, including a visit to the Oxbridge Student Conference in the spring term. Students will receive information regarding the GDST Oxbridge Conference, and our Oxbridge Co-ordinator arranges mentors to support students with their applications.

We also offer an extremely varied programme of careers talks, with recent visits from a book publisher, entrepreneurs, a paediatric ophthalmologist and a human rights lawyer. Our strong connections with professionals from every field—many of who are current or former parents— mean we can support students in finding invaluable work placements.

All students also have access to the GDST Alumnae Network, which is the largest organisation of its kind in the country, with over 70,000 members involved in a wide range of activities all over the world. Members of the GDST Alumnae Network benefit from networking both socially and professionally, face to face and online.

No matter which path a student wishes to take, whether it's dramatic arts at a specialist school in New York, PPE at Pembroke College, Oxford or a year abroad digging wells in Africa, at Howell’s Co-Ed College we will support them on their journey.
