Eight universities will be on offer to deliver workshops on a variety of areas such as 'Placement Years and Study Abroad', 'Right course, right university', 'The benefits of Higher Education', 'Student finance and budgeting', 'UCAS and personal statement', 'Choosing A-levels', 'Interview skills for university' and 'Preparing for HE and making the most of Year 12', amongst other workshops.
- University of Hertfordshire
- University of East Anglia
- Loughborough University
- Leeds University
- University of Wembley
- Cambridge (St Catherine's College)
- Aston University (Birmingham)
- Cardiff University
Pupils will be able to select which talks they wish to attend, and there will be an opportunity to attend three talks during the morning. Alongside the talks, the Universities will also have a stand with representatives who will be able to talk more about the specific Universities and courses, as well as discuss questions with pupils in more detail. These will be set up both before and after the talks.
As a pupil who is approaching the time where choosing which, or whether, university is right for me begins to take over my life, I feel it is indispensably important to obtain as much information as possible about what going to university entails to ensure you make the right decision. I know for myself, the prospect of moving away from home, meeting new people and the inevitable debt is both a mixture of exciting and scary, therefore this fair will be incredibly useful in providing lots of valuable information to make the whole process as easy as possible. If you are someone who is currently preparing for your GCSE’s and university seems too far in the future to worry about right now, I would still highly advise you to attend as looking at potential courses and universities can be crucial in helping you choose the right A Levels as some of the more specialised courses will require qualifications in certain subjects
