Key Stage 4 transition - University Technical Colleges (UTCs)

University Technical Colleges (UTC’s) are government funded schools with a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focus.

They provide a unique and relevant approach to education, which addresses the changing needs of student and employers in the 21st Century. They are established by companies and universities, provide sought-after technical qualifications and benefit from industry standard equipment and specialist staff to provide students with the skills valued by employers.

Most UTC’s admit from Year 10 and the application period is the same as the main secondary admission process.

Whilst there are no UTC’s in the London Borough of Bromley, students have the opportunity to apply for these in other areas if they wish.

Details of how to apply, who to apply to, etc are available from each UTC and the details of all UTCs in the country are available at
