At Sparsholt College we do everything we can to make sure that you have a plan of what you want to do once you leave. This may include progressing onto university, an apprenticeship or continuing into full time employment. Our careers guidance aims to expand the horizons of all students, enabling you to make informed career decisions.

Our Careers Adviser is on hand to help you every step of the way.



  • Careers Interviews

    Careers interviews are impartial, confidential and focused on your individual needs and aim to help you to clarify where you are currently at in the process. They identify what you need to do next and talk you through how to go about it. 

  • UCAS

    Our Careers Adviser is also the UCAS administrator and is available to support you through the UCAS process. This can include working on personal statements, and anything in general to do with higher education.

  • Support for Leavers and Previous Students

    After you leave college, you can still access support from the Careers department. 

    If you are applying to university after a Gap Year (or two!), we will still support you with your application. You will need an academic reference, and to secure this, you must link your application to the college. The application will ask if you are applying through an institution and will give you the options to type in the college ‘buzzword’.  This buzzword changes every year,  so please contact the careers department for the most recent one. 

    Try to start the process as soon as possible to ensure that your application is completed on time. Our internal college deadline is Nov 15, 2021 for the 2022 application cycle.
