HE/Careers Advisor update

September 21, 2016

It has been an exciting few weeks for our 2017 Bromsgrove university applicants. The Year 13s are working hard to complete their personal statements. We have had visits from representatives from Japan, Australia and the USA to give our students advice on how best to meet the requirements from different universities.

I am also pleased to report that we have seven students from Year 12 and 13 who have been invited to Bangkok Patana School for a workshop to help our young hopefuls with their Oxford applications. In this workshop, they will be trained on how best to prepare for the one of the world’s most prestigious universities.

Also, next week we have a lecturer from Nottingham University visiting Bromsgrove to run a personal statement writing workshop with all of our Year 13s. I have no doubt that this will be a valuable learning experience for our students.

Finally, we still have a variety of top university representatives from the USA, Thailand and the U.K. coming to meet our Year 12s and 13s on the 9 November, and also, Bromsgrove will be at the CIS-EARCOS University Fair at the Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok, which will have more than 140 different universities attending. I urge students and parents from Year 11 upwards to come on Saturday the 1st October at 15:45 – 17:45 to see what the world of further education has to offer.

I look forward to seeing you there.
