On Friday the 29th of June, Year 12 took part in the annual UCAS convention held at the University of Bedfordshire’s Bedford campus. This event acted as a great opportunity for students to speak to Universities that they may apply for in year 13 and to pick up any prospectuses and course information by university representatives. The event also acted to allow students to attend subject specific talks ranging from Psychology to Medicine which can help students make their decision regarding what course to study at University.The convention also allowed students to speak to Universities that may be too far for them to attend any open days. This may widen their range of choices of which university to study at.
Furthermore, the event also allowed those students interested in degree apprenticeships to view the range of options available to them. With a range of employers present from industries such as Media and the NHS.
Overall, students found the day very helpful and informative in preparation for their applications to university or apprenticeships for the future.
