The Universities section of the website is designed for those interested in getting in contact with a former LAUDE BSV pupil who is currently studying, or who has studied, at a university they are interested in applying to. You will find a list of universities from all around the world, and under each university, you will find the names and email addresses of those former LAUDE BSV pupils who have attended, or still attend, that university. You will then be able to contact the former pupil and ask for their advice on a range of issues. Below are some questions which may be useful to ask.

  • Do/Did you enjoy the course?

  • Is there any accommodation you would recommend?

  • Do you have any tips for my application?

  • Are there extracurricular opportunities at the university?

  • Does the university help with career advice?

  • What’s the city like?

  • Is there anything you wish you knew when you applied?

Are you a BSV Alumni? Would you like to take part in this project? Just fill in the following form to help you keep in contact with the school, but also to help put our current students in contact with you and help our Sixth Form find the right university for them.
