Focus on Higher Education
26 June 2015
Now that their examinations are over, Year 12 students are beginning to prepare for the next big step ahead! On Tuesday 9 June, a speaker from the admissions team at Birmingham University gave a talk to pupils and their parents about UCAS which gave a valuable introduction to the process.
This was followed on Wednesday 24 June when the girls spent the morning registering for UCAS and attending workshops on how to write a personal statements and how to choose a suitable university and course. On Thursday 25th they attended the Higher Education Convention at Aston University where they had a chance to collect information from a variety of universities and to attend seminars on topics such as student finance. Year 12 are now fired with enthusiasm for the challenges ahead!
