8 June 2017 at The Tomlinson Centre
Getting a place at a top university can be challenging, the processes and application systems can seem complicated and deadlines confusing. It’s not always easy to know what course to choose or what a university is looking for when allocating places.
Friends and family can be a great support if they have been through the process themselves but if your child is one of the first in their family to consider university, or you are struggling to understand the processes involved, it can be hard to know where to start.
We have organised an information event on 8 June for parents/carers/relatives in this position who are keen to support their academic young person currently in Year 10, to a top university.
We are lucky to have Abi Robinson from UCL (ranked 4th in the UK by the Times Higher Education Awards), Bradley Crack from Southampton University (ranked 16th) and Sarah Lusack from Target Oxbridge, a free support programme, (recently featured on Radio 4) that helps black students and students of mixed race with black heritage increase their chances of getting into the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge (known collectively as Oxbridge) to share their knowledge and tips.
All attendees will be given an information handout as a reminder of the points covered by the event.
