PALMER’S College organised two successful Higher Education (HE) events this week encouraging first year students to think about university along with providing second year students and their parents with valuable HE information.
The HE fair took place on 22 September and once again was a huge success.
27 universities mainly from London and the South East attended. Also available to students were Connexions Advisers, UCAS clinics and Q and A sessions. Hundreds of students were also tempted into the exhibition not only by the universities but also by the free ‘student grub’ on offer – beans, toast, noodles and pizza.
The UCAS Parents’ Evening took place on the evening of the 21 September. James Busson from City University and Judith Barras spoke to a packed Lecture Theatre about the benefits, and the costs involved, of going to university and the application process.
The aim of the evening was to involve parents in that process and to demystify what is involved. Connexions and careers staff were on hand to answer any questions.
Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: “I am delighted with the two successful HE events that took place on campus this week. Once again they have proved very popular and have helped hundreds of our students move closer to the university of their choice and also provided valuable HE information for parents.”
