UK University & Apprenticeship Search Virtual Fair
Dear Parent(s)/ Carer(s),
We are encouraging students to take part in the UK University & Apprenticeship Search Virtual Fair on Wednesday 11 November (12:00-18:00). This free event features over 90 universities, colleges, and apprenticeship providers from around the UK, along with 10 interactive webinars, and is aimed at Years 13, 12, 11 and parents to provide you with all the information you and your child needs to make informed decisions about their post-18 options.
Students, parents and carers simply need to register online at: www.ukunisearch-north.vfairs.com
Students and parents can chat directly with a mixture of Russell Group, red brick, and modern universities from around the UK to find out invaluable information about courses, modules and life at university, and discover what admissions tutors are looking for in UCAS applications. Attendees can also speak to colleges and local and national companies about their apprenticeship schemes.
10 interactive webinars will run throughout the day on a variety of university and apprenticeship topics, such as UCAS Personal Statements, Student Finance and Apprenticeships. The webinars are run by university and apprenticeship professionals who will also host Q&A sessions after the presentations. You can view the webinar timetable and presenters list using the link below:
Students should aim to register in advance to receive a free event guide, which will explain how the day will work and how both yourself and your child can make the most of the exhibitor interactions. The event guide will also contain lots of articles on topics such as student finance, UCAS applications, extra funding, personal statements and apprenticeships.
Please encourage your daughter or son to book their free place and view the exhibitor list, here: www.ukunisearch-north.vfairs.com. We recommend registering for the event as soon as possible to ensure students receive the event guide and have time to prepare for the big day.
Finally, please note that attendance to timetabled lessons on this day must take precedence over this event.
