Name: Sanjana Lakkineni
Name: Ariana Lopez Clift
Subject : International Business with Portuguese
Queen’s University, Belfast
“Lucy’s interest in Business developed during her time at WH as she studied it at IGCSE and then A Level. When she discovered she could study Business with a language at university she was excited. Studying with WH was great preparation for university as she learned self discipline, how to manage her time and how to study more independently.”
Subject: B.Sc Economics
University of Warwick
“Studying through Wolsey Hall Oxford has allowed Sanjana to concentrate exclusively on her studies and devote maximum time to academics which would not have been possible had she attended a regular school. Wolsey Hall Oxford provides high-quality study material and the feedback given by Wolsey Hall Oxford tutors is extremely helpful to the student in understanding how to answer questions in the A-Levels examinations. The guidance provided by Wolsey Hall Oxford Higher Education Counsellor Mr Joel Roderick and Manager of Student Support Sarah Webb was invaluable in Sanjana getting admission to the University of Warwick which is one of the top universities in the world.”
University of Oxford
After completing her studies Ariana hopes to become an Archivist. She had this to say about her experience of homeschooling with Wolsey Hall, “As my school didn’t offer any GCSE or A Levels in either Latin or Ancient History, studying through Wolsey Hall helped me to find out whether studying Latin at University would be the right choice. I also believe that studying with Wolsey Hall gave me an opportunity to have a basis in Latin which helped with my application to the University of Oxford.”
