Sky's the limit as Solihull student offered a place at Cambridge

Solihull Editorial 13th Feb, 2021

AN aspiring architect studying at Solihull Sixth Form College is hoping to take up an offer from the University of Cambridge this autumn.

Sakura Izaki-Lee, a former Queensbridge School pupil, has secured an offer to study Architecture at Selwyn College, Cambridge, after successfully completing their selection process.

“I hadn’t ever really considered applying to Cambridge until the College sent out a message about it during my first year,” said Sakura.

“My thinking was that I didn’t have anything to lose by going through the application process, that the value and intensity of learning at Cambridge would be a great opportunity, and that if anything the application process would just confirm my interest in studying architecture.

“Applying to Oxbridge is initially very daunting because of the status of the institution. But it was honestly not as difficult as I had thought, and if you try not to put too much pressure on getting in, it can actually be very enjoyable.

“The Sixth Form College was extremely helpful.

“I benefited from numerous meetings for reviewing and editing my personal statement, practice interviews, and having someone to ask questions to about Cambridge in general.

“In addition, the independence of studying at the college has encouraged me to become more proactive in learning beyond the content of my A levels.”
