University Day is a big hit with students
The Dallam Heversham site has hosted our first enrichment event of this year for able students from Dallam, Dowdales and Settlebeck schools.
The focus was on University – from courses, to costs, personal statements and applying to Oxbridge – with superb help from Orock from Queens College Oxford Outreach Team and Jon from UniTasterDays.
The students also looked at Russell Group Universities with a view to developing enthusiasm early and making them aware of what they need to do. The four sessions covered Key Uni Facts, Fees,Loans and Free Money workshops, Personal Statements and finally Applying for Oxbridge.
Student Feedback was excellent :
– engaging and interesting – lets do more on personal statements – can we have this every month please! -fun and inclusive – this was really great thank you! – really helped me to understand how student finance works!
