Preparing for University

September 28, 2018

On Tuesday morning we hosted a visit from the University of Essex. All Year 12 & 13 students were off timetable for one lesson to take part in the presentation. Andrew Marriot was asked to concentrate on the areas of interest of our students at the moment; primarily writing personal statements, the application process to the UK and student finance available. All of these areas were covered in depth, along with some information on the University itself. Our students had the opportunity to ask questions and look at examples of good and not so good applications that the university has received. I know that our students thoroughly enjoyed their hour and left much more informed.

The RIUF university fair is next weekend (6th & 7th October) which has been extensively advertised to our students. It is highly recommended for parents and students in Years 11 to 13 to attend. Maybe I will see you there.
