HE/Careers Advisor update

October 27, 2016

Recently, our Bromsgrove students attended the CIS Conference in Bangkok where they got to meet over 300 potential universities and their representatives from around the world. This was a very valuable experience for our students to find out more about the different campuses and courses on offer so that they can start to map out their future.

Before the half term break, our five Oxbridge students sent their applications to their chosen colleges and I would like to commend them for all their immense hard work and dedication during the process. But their preparation did not stop there, because we also took a group of students to an Oxford Interview Workshop at Patana where they met other hopeful candidates also competing for a place at the prestigious university. The workshop included interview tips and advice on personal statements and they got a chance to discuss previous interview questions with their peers. It was a valuable practice and experience, and the students were delighted at the chance to face such a challenge.

Finally, on the 9 November, I am happy to announce that Bromsgrove is hosting the BRIT ED university fair, at 08:00 until 09:15, which will be open to Year 10, 11 and 12. This fair will have over ten universities from Japan, and Scotland and also universities that specialise in veterinary and dentistry. We hope that this will aid students in starting to think about their future choices early on.
