HE Unique Fair @ Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College
May 9 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Our UNIque Higher Education Fair takes place on Wednesday 9 May 2018 in the Sports Hall between 5:00pm and 7:00pm.

This event is designed to provide valuable and current advice on progression to Universities and Colleges.

We have secured representation from over 20 established Universities/Higher Education providers, including those from the Russell Group, and admissions teams will be available to give bespoke advice on potential avenues of further study.

In addition, there will be two keynote presentations, which will outline the UCAS process and the latest financial arrangements for degree courses. This is an ever-changing landscape, so even if you already have a son/daughter at University, there may be new information available.

UCAS Fair @ Leeds Beckett University
Jun 28 @ 10:30 am – 2:00 pm

Join UCAS experts, university and college representatives, and industry professionals at this unique, campus-based event. A great opportunity to hear from both visiting exhibitors, as well as see, in detail, what the host university can offer.

With inspirational talks, topical seminars, application process advice, and interactive stands, this is an event experience like no other.

Find out what life is like on a university campus, and ask current students from a range of universities what it’s really like to study a certain subject. It’s the perfect opportunity to ask those burning questions that Google just can’t answer.

Whether it’s about kick-starting research or refining choices, there’s something for everyone at a UCAS exhibition.

‘A UCAS exhibition will focus your research and get you thinking about what you really want from your future.’ – Charlotte, English student.

 

A copy of the parental permission letter to attend this Fair can be found on our Letters from the Academy page.
