Yesterday our Sixth Form took part in the COBIS Virtual Universities Fair. The Fair included a series of talks from experts on topics such as choosing a university, how to write a personal statement, help for students studying medicine, studying business or studying STEM, advice for students applying to Oxbridge, the US and Europe.
In addition to these talks, students could visit the "virtual booths" of around 90 universities from the UK, the USA, Canada, Ireland, Holland, Spain and more. Here, representatives from each institution answer questions about the courses they offer and their locations. The aim for the Year 12s was to begin the process of preparing for a university application, while the Year 13s were fine-tuning and putting the finishing touches to their applications.
