I have been following what has happened to six-formers who through no reason of their own have failed to find a UK university place.

As Dean in a large faculty in a major English-style and English-speaking university in Hong Kong, I happen to be able to offer a number of places and perhaps even some scholarships. Don’t worry, this is not aimed at commercial gain! My university is well-endowed and unlike many UK universities does not need to make money off the back of foreign students.

If there are any teachers or relatives of disappointed six-formers on your mailing list they might find the following information useful. There are still place but prospective students would have to move quickly:

My university, the City University of Hong Kong, is a major English-speaking public university ranked 124 in the world in the Times Higher Education QS rankings. It is situated in a former British colony and now cosmopolitan global city of Hong Kong. CityU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences still has some places and may even be able to provide scholarships in a broad range of subjects in its six constituent departments. Amongst them are Asian Studies, international politics and policy studies, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Linguistics, Heritage Studies, Comparative literature, English and Creative Writing, Broadcast journalism, Psychology and Criminology.
