2016 Leavers' Camp

Applications for the organising committee of the 2016 Leavers' Camp are now open

As every year, the Leavers' Camp is one of the highlights of the Milestone calendar. The camp is entirely organised by you, the alumni, and hence offers a great opportunity to develop your skills at event organisation, management, fundraising, and budgeting (apart from lots of fun, of course). The Milestone Leavers' Camp Organising Committee (MLCOC) will have 10 members, who will tackle the challenge of making the camp for this year's 135 leavers the best ever.

The larger aim is to celebrate the work done thus far and to begin creating an environment that will not only help leavers in settling into their new home abroad, but connect them with like-minded alumni in the hope that they will carry on the Milestone mission and live up to the high expectations placed in them, launch innovating projects together and work on important social issues.

A Selection Commission has been set up whose tasks are to select the Chair of the MLCOC from among the applicants, to approve the other members of the MLCOC, based on the Chair's recommendations, and to advise and consult the MLCOC, to insure that past mistakes are avoided and best practices are continued and improved.

The members of the Selection Commission are:

Offers Tracker 2014/2015

This live tracker shows the offers received from universities and accepted by our students enrolled in the Senior Year 2014/2015 listed according to the Complete University Guide 2015.

In the centralised UK system, each student can apply to up to 5 courses; once the universities have communicated their decisions, students select one firm and one insurance choice, since offers are conditional and depend on their Érettségi results. The figures are not final, given that universities have until May to communicate their decisions. Most students have therefore yet to pick their firm and insurance choices.

For Students Only
