On Friday 11th March we visited Villa Park for a university fair. There was a variety of universities from around the country as well as seminars on student finance and writing personal statements.
It was a valuable experience as we had the chance to speak to many universities about their courses and entry requirements as well as picking up prospectuses for the upcoming year. It was helpful to be able to speak to the representatives of the university specifically about our courses instead of looking online or in a book.
We were given a breakdown on what admission tutors are looking for in personal statements and how to structure them. We also learnt about student financials including tuition loans, maintenance loans and bursaries and how to access them.
Overall it was an amazing experience and worthwhile as we now know a lot more not only out courses but also university life in general.Back to News
