Colet Fellowship

The Colet Fellowship offers an opportunity for up to three Americans who are recent graduates from a US university to work for one academic year at St Paul’s School.

The Colet Fellowship work with the US Universities Department as well as with an academic department.

In the US Universities Department Colet Fellows have particular responsibility for assisting students with college application essays. They also give occasional presentations and help with department events.

Colet Fellows select their own academic department affiliation. These have included Engineering, Biology, Latin, English, History, Art, Mathematics and Politics.  Outside of the classroom Colet Fellows with music, sports or other extra-curricular skills or interests assist with student activities.

The Colet Fellowship Year runs from the end of August to the end of June or early July. The school provides documentation for the relevant visa.  Colet Fellows are provided with housing and meals during term time. As employees of the school, Colet Fellows are eligible for free healthcare under the National Health Service.


The Colet Fellowship was an excellent opportunity to use my experience in the U.S. university admissions process to help prospective applicants from St Paul’s. In addition to helping students with their U.S. university applications, I was able to teach classes, coach sports teams, participate in school trips, and of course take advantage of all the great city of London has to offer as well. My year as a Colet Fellow was a life-changing experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.

I learned as much from working with the exceptionally bright boys of St Paul’s as I hope they learned from me. I can’t imagine a better way to spend my first year out of college.
