Post 16 UK Uni Fair 2017 1

Students score great advice at Arsenal

Mrs E. Ahmad, Student Career Pathways, Vocational Education and Enterprise Leader, Business, writes:

6th form students joined 6000 others at this year’s exciting and informative UK University Search Fair at Arsenal Emirates Stadium last Friday. The event provided our students with the opportunity to speak to representatives from a multitude of places, such as Oxford University, Russell Group, red brick universities and modern institutions. A wide variety of the UK’s best apprenticeship providers, HE colleges, specialist institutions, as well as some of the UK’s top employers and student-related organisations were also in attendance. Exhibitors featured in three huge halls overlooking Arsenal’s pitch, giving students what some would class a ‘great’ view – fingers crossed next year it’s held in Tottenham’s grounds… a winners pitch!

Seminars took place throughout the day, giving students the opportunity to have a deeper insight into aspects of applying and attending University and Apprenticeships. Key speakers were available after the seminars for one-to-one Q&A’s.

“Loved the uni stands; Glasgow, Bath and Bristol.” Edgar Kager

“Seminars were very informative, with very approachable exhibitors who offered helpful information.” Melanie Georgiou

“I found the student finance and UCAS personal statement and application advice seminars particularly helpful. Finding out about the Russell Group and Oxbridge was also very helpful.” Joseph Lowton

“Very enjoyable experience, glad I could go. I got some valuable information and a free bag!” Hannah Imafidon

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to attend, the chance to get some valuable information.” Lauren Atkins

“The trip was interesting and helpful. It allowed me to look at the various other universities which will help a great deal for deciding what and where to study.” Lily Thompson

Thanks go to Mrs Adams for arranging this fantastic opportunity for our students.
