Mrs Rogers' Words Lent Week 10
Year 12 students took full advantage of speaking with student ambassadors from a variety of universities at the Higher Education Exhibition this week.
“Speaking to university reps was really helpful, especially because I had questions about entry points, a placement year and wanted to ask about sports related degrees”
Josh, Year 13, has already received information-packed emails from the universities he is interested in because he allowed them to scan a QR code which links to his personal email address.
Before the trip, Noah was very uncertain about what to do at the end of Year 13, whether university was the best option for him. Following several conversations with representatives from various institutions, he is now researching accountancy and finance degrees.
Overall, the students were very enthused about the event, finding it useful and interesting, in fact they wished they could have had more time there! It has helped many of them begin to focus on their next steps and is an important stage in the process of completing their UCAS application form and beginning to write their personal statement.
Year 13 are now deciding on their Firm and Insurance degree choices and triggering emails regarding accommodation as a result. This week Mrs Hall and I outlined how to apply for student finance, covering tuition fees and the maintenance loan. The cost of being a student, especially in second year when there will be more bills to pay, was covered too. And we look forward to ‘seeing’ Year 13 parents at our lunchtime student finance presentation next Tuesday 30 March at 12.30-1.15pm. You can access the Google meet here.
In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine and don’t forget to put your clocks forward this weekend.
With best wishes for a sunny weekend ahead.
