My Welsh correspondent has been keeping me busy this summer. But being half Welsh myself, I’m always happy to do what I can to keep the Principality in the minds of students and parents when they’re investigating and researching uni choices.
Given the added difficulty in making decisions about university study when you can’t visit open days or attend UCAS fairs, the Study in Wales Virtual HE Fair is happening next Friday to give students and parents a helping hand in making the right decisions.
The event will feature all the universities in Wales plus the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. You will be able to visit exhibition stands and chat to representatives, collect information, watch videos, download prospectuses and take part in live webinars in the virtual auditorium.
The event is completely free of charge and is open to Year 11, 12 and 13 students, parents, carers, teachers and advisers. It will provide a perfect opportunity for those who are considering applying to uni in 2021, 2022 or even 2023 and who are yet to kick-start their HE research.
The event is also open to students who are still considering their university options for 2020 and will provide an opportunity to get their questions answered by HE professionals. It’s not too late to bag yourself a place at uni to start this autumn if your plans are still uncertain.
Whilst it’s exclusively Welsh institutions who will be represented at the Virtual Fair, the event is open to a UK-wide audience. So if you’re free next Friday, do take this opportunity to see what delights and exciting opportunities the Land of my Fathers (literally) has to offer.
Registration is easy and takes less then two minutes. Anyone interested is invited to book their place at https://heloacymruwales.vfairs.com/en/.
