1994 Group congratulates A Level students and celebrates diversity of student experiences on offer at UK universities

Mark Fuller, 1994 Group Director of Communications, said:

“A-Level students should be incredibly proud of the results they are receiving today and the hard work they have put in to achieve them. Study at any level requires talent and commitment, virtues which all of today’s successful students should be celebrated for.

“Many of the students receiving results today will go on to university. Some will already have places assured while others will be considering the best opportunities now available to them. The UK is lucky to have a wide range of institutions offering a rich diversity of student experiences. Some offer a purely vocational focus, while others commit the majority of their resources to research.  1994 Group universities combine high quality teaching with world class research on small scale campuses, meaning that students join lecturers and researchers in close-knit academic communities.

“Thanks to the changes the Government has made to higher education funding, and the ways in which student places are allocated, potential students have more power than ever to choose the student experience that best works for them.  Armed with the results they are celebrating today, students can look forward to outstanding university experiences that prepare them well to meet future ambitions.”
