Higher Education Support

Equipped with consistently impressive A-level results, nearly all Shrewsbury students choose to continue into Higher Education at prestigious universities and colleges around the world.

Our team of four full-time Higher Education advisors, including specialists in UK US and Thai universities, is committed to ensuring that Shrewsbury students are supported throughout their journey towards university study.

Through Learning for Life Curriculum, we begin to prepare students from Year 9 onwards for life beyond Shrewsbury, in Higher Education and careers of the future.

Students in years 12 and 13 receive holistic support in the lead up to their university applications and public examinations. Students are able to schedule 1:1 appointments at any point in the academic year, in order to further develop their thoughts and planning for university applications.

Our focus is to ensure that all students have the information and advice they need to make choices that are right for them, taking into consideration both their academic and personal profiles, and that the applications our students submit are of the very highest quality.

We value the role that parents have to play in supporting their children’s university ambitions, and schedule regular presentation and seminars to ensure that they understand the options and requirements involved in the university application process.

Ms. Jo Fretwell: Director of Higher Education

Ms. Terri Overton: Associate Director of Higher Education (USA specialist)

Ms. Rachael Walker: Associate Director of Higher Education (UK specialist)

Mr. Stuart Markes: Associate Director of Higher Education (Thailand specialist)


University Visits and Presentations

Our advisors take part in regular study visits to UK, US and other world universities and colleges, meeting with both admissions advisors and Shrewsbury alumni. These visits help our advisors to gather important information and feedback on the application process, and real life experience of studying at different universities.

Over the years, we have built effective relationships with hundreds of institutions worldwide, and which have proved extremely useful for students wanting to know more about their study options.

Every year we welcome over one hundred Higher Education institutions from across the World to meet with our students in the Sixth Form centre. These visits provide an important opportunity for our students to make direct connections, and access specific information and advice from some of the world’s leading institutions relating to their admissions requirements, the courses they offer, their facilities, and what successful applicants could expect from their time at university.

Visits are received throughout the academic year, our preferred timing being either 12:00-12:40 or 14:45 - 15:30 for universities to present to our students. All students and parents are welcome to attend. If you represent a university or college, and would like to arrange a visit please contact us:

We look forward to welcoming you to Shrewsbury International School.
