Percentage of students obtaining a place at top universities

We are delighted to announce the commencement of the Lampton Exceptional Scholars Programme in September 2015. This unique and bespoke course is an elite training programme that will support Lampton’s most academically aspirational students in their pursuit of places at the country’s most selective universities and employers.

The programme will facilitate the development of skills that top universities and employers demand from students:
• Analysis and evaluation
• Problem solving
• Debate, discussion and high level verbal communication
• Logical, careful and critical thinking
• High level academic literacy


The programme will support students as they work to develop and extend these high-level, vital skills, through a variety of different learning opportunities. Furthermore, the programme will support those candidates who will be sitting the BMAT (Med/VetMed, Dentistry), UKCAT (Med/VetMed) and LNAT (Law) examinations.
The Lampton Exceptional Scholars Programme will be an important asset to students’ profile, UCAS application, references, CV and employment application, as it is evidence of one’s personal commitment to self-development.
We look forward to supporting our students’ in their pursuit of excellence.
