Exploring Further Education at University Fair

Exploring Further Education at University Fair

Last week the University Fair saw an impressive turnout of pupils, not only from Caterham but also from Oxted, St Bede’s, Warlingham and Reigate College, all eager to explore their options for further education. Representatives from thirty institutions and organisations participated, including The University Guys, UCL, Imperial College, Exeter, Nottingham, Durham and Bath.

The fair featured a variety of activities and offerings designed to engage pupils and facilitate meaningful interactions with university representatives. These included:

Stands: Each participating institution set up informational stands showcasing their academic programs, campus life, admission requirements, and scholarship opportunities. Representatives were available to answer questions and provide guidance to pupils.

Talks: Concurrent talks were organised on topics such as applying to competitive universities, degree apprenticeships versus the traditional university degree route, how to the navigate medicine and dentistry application process and writing fantastic personal statements. These sessions were well-received and provided pupils with practical advice for navigating the whole application process.

Feedback from pupils, parents and guardians, overwhelmingly indicated that the University Fair was a resounding success. Everyone appreciated the opportunity to explore a wide range of educational options in one convenient location and found the interactions with university representatives to be highly informative and inspiring.

This is such a valuable platform for pupils to explore higher education opportunities, gain insights into different academic pathways, and connect with representatives from various institutions. By fostering a culture of curiosity, exploration, and informed decision-making, the fair contributed to the school’s mission of preparing students for success in their future career journeys.
