Higher Education Exhibition At The University of Surrey
Sixth Form students in Year 12 visited the University of Surrey this week for the Higher Education exhibition. Over 150 institutions were represented, mainly universities, ranging from the Royal Agricultural University to the London Institute of Banking and Finance. The University of Law were keen to show their apprenticeship courses too, both for solicitors and paralegals.
Non-university exhibitors included the RAF, the National Apprenticeship Service and the Tante Marie Culinary Academy. The students also had the opportunity to sit in on a variety of seminars to help them prepare for the next steps such as ‘student life’, ‘how to choose a course’ and ‘exploring post-18 options’.
Student Katie Garthside found the ‘applying to Oxford and Cambridge’ seminar most useful. Additionally, student Marcus Michels said that there were so many unexpected course options and he found a very interesting niche course on Video Games Design at Abertay University.
Kim Hall, Sixth Form Administrator, said:
“The students had done the all-important background work needed before the event to make the most of the day and found the exhibition very rewarding as a result.”
