2020: Early Decisions

We are proud to announce early decision and acceptance results for Aiglon’s Class of 2020.

For students to be fully prepared to submit competitive early applications, the real work begins in Year 12. It starts with research, personal essay and statement drafts and lots of conversation with counsellors and teachers. As a result, members of the Class of 2020 have worked diligently and are now receiving excellent news.

United States & Global

Several students applied early decision to US universities resulting in eight acceptances. They will enrol at the following institutions in the autumn: Boston College, Bryn Mawr College, Duke University, NYU, NYU-Tisch School of the Arts, Northeastern, University of Pennsylvania and University of Rochester.

In addition, students earned acceptances through early action admission rounds, including most notably: Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, Fordham, Minerva Schools, Norwich, Univ of Notre Dame, Univ of San Francisco, Univ of Toronto.

In some cases, students receive a “defer” decision; their applications are re-evaluated in the next round: Babson, Georgetown, Harvard, Princeton and Yale.

United Kingdom

When applying to universities in the UK, students must have a clear idea of what they wish to study. Therefore, they must select specific courses. As of the middle of January, Aiglon had received 49 conditional offers for the following courses:

Architecture (4), Biomedical Science (3), Business and Management (7), Computer Science (7), Drama and Theatre Arts (2), Economics (3), Fashion Design (2), Geographic Information Science, German and Politics, Global Challenges, Global Health (3), International Relations (7), Law (5), Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE), Physics, Sociology

Included in these offers were three successful applications to the University of Cambridge to study Architecture, Computer Science, and Human, Social & Political Sciences.

With many more decisions to still come in, so far conditional offers have come from: Bristol, Brunel, Cardiff, City, Durham, Istituto Marangoni, King’s College, Kingston, Lancaster, New College of the Humanities, Newcastle, Queen Mary, Regent’s, Royal Holloway, SOAS, University College London (UCL), Edinburgh, Exeter, Greenwich, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, St Andrews, Warwick, Westminster.

By the end of this application season, 78 members of the Class of 2020 will have prepared essays and art portfolios, conducted interviews, and completed admission entrance exams to support applications to over 500 universities worldwide.
