SEO Scholars Programme

Virgo Fidelis has been invited to join the SEO Scholars programme as a partner school this year .

The SEO Scholars programme has been developed to increase the Higher Education awareness, professional aspirations and academic performance of Year 11-13 pupils, especially those from the backgrounds most under-represented at leading UK universities and City firms.

The Programmes 's goal is to increase the high number of high calibre students from the most under-represented backgrounds entering the top universities and going on to pursue highly competitive careers.

The Scholars Programme wil provide an unrivalled level of support including:

  • Mentoring - Each Scholar will be assigned two mentors who will provide advice and support throughout the academic year; an undergraduate mentor (studying at a top UK university) and a professional mentor (working in a highly competitive career).
  • Insight - Each Scholar will benefit from the work experience at partner firms and/ or tailored immersive insight days at top UK universities providing opportunities to develop study & competency skills relevant for university study and careers in highly competitive professionssuch as investment banking, corporate law, professional services, technology, and advertising & marketing.
  • Summer School - Year 12 Scholars will have the opportunity to apply for a place on a residential summer school run by SEO at a top London University with participation from SEO alumni and key representatives from top UK universities and partner firms.
